Oblivion (1994)

A pulpy sci-fi western with tongue so far in cheek that it punches a bloody hole right through to the other side of the cheek. Why did I even watch it? Because the screenplay is by Peter David, someone that I know can do good work from time to time. Some of the dialogue is clever, almost too good for what it has to exist alongside, and even though it was overall pretty high on the scale of terrible cheese I never once considered turning it off.
It includes a small handful of TV stars making fun of roles that made them famous, such as Julie Newmar (good fun) and George Takei (awful).
