1x05 Give Me Some Truth
FlashForward hits new heights of lunacy with a Big Dramatic Shoot-Out set to some chart-bothering pop-rock. Except it's '80s chart-bothering pop-rock. I just can't tell if it's meant to be a comic bad-'80s-movie-style gunfight or if the producers actually thought this was a cool idea. Either way, it just seems laughable for all the wrong reasons.
Oh dear.

Ripley's Game (2002)
[#67 in 100 Films in a Year 2009]
Ebert numbers this among his Great Movies. That may be over-egging it a bit, but it's certainly underrated.
