Smithee Award Winner! "Cutting Butter With A Chainsaw"
Explosive Car Chase
In a movie with a car chase every two minutes, this is the one to end all car chases. House explodes! Car explodes! Gas tank and car explodes! Your head explodes!
Acting Appropriately Stupid
A Doom with a View
Carmen seems to have no sense of self-preservation. Panama snaps, “Get away from that window!” She comes back with, “Why, what do you think will happen?” INSTANTLY, Perez comes crashing through the window and nearly kills her as a close-quarters firefight erupts.
Worst Acting
Director of the FBA: Fucking Bad Acting
It’s William Smith (NOT Will Smith). This one is white and is the flat-broke man’s Stacey Keach. But his voice and his style…ugh.
Director Claim to Fame
John Stewart Not a political pundit, this is the stuntman, sometimes actor, and occasional director of the "Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers" show. 
Actor Character Claim to Fame
Gregory Scott Cummins Osborn Luther on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia" and Detective Moore on "Bosch." 
William Hubbard Knight McKinnon Smalltime small-screen character actor in primetime dramas and comedies throughout the '80s and '90s. 
Barri Murphy Carmen Julia in Time Tracers
William Smith Conover NOT Will Smith. This guy is a big bruiser who played Falconetti on "Rich Man, Poor Man" (NOT "Falcon Eddie" as the cover of Angels Die Hard would have you believe). He also portrayed "Kimo" Carew on "Hawaii Five-O," and fought with Clint Eastwood in Any Which Way You Can
Cameron Mitchell Frankie Navarro A preacher's son, he chose a darker path for his life. Playing bit parts on TV in the '70s and '80s. 
Ross Hagen Drago Not only did he play "Rommel" in the Smithee/MST3K "classic" film The Sidehackers, he also produced it. 
Hoke Howell Hitch Funny-looking guy with huuuge ears, he played lots of bit parts in film and TV.
