2019: After the Fall of New York

Nomination Year: 1998
SYNOPSIS:  After the apocalypse (which, to the Italian mind, must be when New York falls), a mercenary race-car driver is sent on a mission to find one of the Earth's last fertile women. (Isn't that always the way?) She's being held inside an impenetrable stronghold in the remains of New York. Along with a cyborg and a friendly midget, he awakens and rescues the girl. Now he and his rag-tag fugitive followers must escape from New York in a homemade super-car.

"Wanna Run That By Me Again?"

I Always Pack an Extra Dwarf for Emergencies
"I want you to promise you'll put me in your suitcase when you go." "It won't be any better elsewhere." "I know, but it's just the illusion it gives."

"Alas, Poor Yorick"

"Stupid Bastards! Aaaaaa!"
The three principals are scrounging in the junkyard for parts to their "supercar," when suddenly an enemy patrol is upon them. Shorty the dwarf valiantly jumps out to lead them on a wild goose chase, thus creating the diversion the others need to escape safely. Shorty's captured, and as they begin to interrogate him as to the whereabouts of his friends, he eyes these sharp prong-like protrusions of junk. With much lip-licking and sidelong glancing (you know what's coming), he says, "Yeah, sure, I'll tell you where they are. Stupid bastards! AAaaaaaa!" He rams himself into the spikes. Shorty, your noble sacrifice will not be in vain! Though you were short in stature, you were long on courage.


"We Probably Could've Planned This Whole 'Death Tunnel' Thing a Little Better"
The ride through the "gauntlet tunnel." Mines that light up, a car that survives a super-cannon with just some metal on the hood, and a last-second laser death.
