the Government is:
Aware of
Unaware of
Keeping it a tighlty guarded secret
Refusing to listen to all warnings and reason

Those warnings AKA THE TRUTH DAMNIT are coming from:
A brilliant Scientist
A discredited scientist
A Brilliant discredited scientist
The Son of a brilliant discredited scientist
A group of grad students
A Blogger/Conspiracy Theorist who gets it right for once


The main plan to save us is:
Not going to work and they have no backup plan
Not going to work so they have to use an untested Technology
Is Contingent on using as untested technology
Is not going to work BUT Someone else has an unsanctioned backup plan depending on Untested Technology

This Technology was created/built:
By a brilliant Scientist
By a brilliant Macho Scientist
Years ago by a discredited scientist
Years ago by the discredited Father of a scientist
By a group of Grad Students for their Senior Thesis
In secret by the Government
In secret by a Mega Corporation
In secret by a Discredited Scientist
In secret by the Son of a Discredited Scientist

The only person who can save us all is:
A brilliant Scientist
A brilliant Macho Scientist
A Macho Man guided by a Brilliant Scientist
A group of Grad Students
A misunderstood but brilliant youth
An everyday Joe at the right time and place

The Main threat to the Plan is:
Inept Governent Bureucrats
Greedy Corporate Officers
Terrorists
Head scientists who feel threatened by our heroes awesomeness
Black Clad Jackbooted thugs who are only interested in following orders
A Military Commander who's only option is to use maximum firepower regardless of consequence
The Idiot project head who couldn't extrapolate pi to the third decimal point
Unforseen complications due to a secondary storyline

Helping the Hero of the story is:
His Highly placed and can pull strings for him Ex-wife whom is secretly still in love with him
His until the end resentful brat of a child
His Highly placed and can pull strings for him Girlfriend
A group of grad students
The only Military Officer/Security Officer who doesn't have his head up his butt
A Blogger/Conspiracy Theorist who's along for the ride
His faithful assistant
His faithful Female assistant who is secretly in love with him
An expendible friend or two

Bulding Suspense, our hero can't activate the weapon/technology because:
It's missing a Key Component they have to retrieve or repair
The computer goes down and needs to be repaired
The power drops to below acceptable levels and needs to be restored
The path to the shiny red button is cut off and they have to find a new way around
His faithful assistant is a member of a doomsday cult and is commiting acts of sabotage
His faithful assistant is a foreign agent and is commiting acts of sabotage and who doesn't seem to realize no Earth = No foreign Nation to serve
The head scientist/military officer/corporate executive becomes mentally deranged from the pressure and is commiting acts of sabotage

Our hero Activates the weapon/technology at the last moment:
And the Earth is saved totally, all is Puppies, Kittens and Rainbows
And the Earth is saved but damaged but humanity is now wiser and better off for it
And the Earth is saved, but our hero sacrifices his life
And the Earth is saved, but our hero has to sacrifice the life of someone he cares about
And the Earth is totally blowed up

If someone took the time to checklist this against the releases already they'd be able to figure out what's coming out soon. :unsure

So if a million monkeys on a million typewriters.... wait a sec. If a single monkey pushed a few buttons, they could write the next SyFy movie.

Write it, get Jolt as your sponsor and you're set. I Love SyFy Disaster movies, i don't know why, I just do. So I Mentally Sifted Through all the ones I've seen to come up with that list, PLUS some inspiration from Big Budget ones like The Core and Day After Tomorrow.

Just make sure to include a role for a plucky, straight-out-of-college, newly hired, research assistant, who is slightly nerdy, but miraculously sexy, when she takes off her horn rimmed glasses, who is put in charge of the group of grad students, so Mr. Verta's wife has a shot at a featured role.

All of last year, CHUD.com had the creator of SyFy Channel's EUREKA come up with totally F'd up plots for future SyFy Channel movies. He did ONE A DAY, the whole year. Every single on of them is HYSTERICAL - and so bad/insane that they'd be PERFECT.

Just go to kmart, I saw a 12 movie set for 5.00 of scifi channel films. I think they might have been monster movies but I bet they have one for scifi films.
