Two karate kids — Belgium's Jean-Claude Van Damme and Sweden's Dolph Lundgren — team up to play weird-accented soldiers who kill each other in Vietnam. And that's just the prologue. Cut to the present: The boys have been retooled as combat robots under military control until memories start seeping into their rusty craniums. Though the idea is dumb enough to be fun, director Roland Emmerich does the Terminator thing without much style, and the two stars bash into each other but never connect. The signpost ahead reads video scrapheap.

    “Party Rock Anthem”

    LMFAO | 2011

    This electro-pop uncle-nephew duo burst onto the scene with 2009’s "Shots," a song about getting totally obliterated. Two years afterward, they were still shamelessly getting wild but now insisting that everyone else join them in the fun. "I wanted a song for when we walked into a party, so I thought, 'Party rock in the house tonight/Everybody just have a good time,'" Redfoo (a.k.a. Stefan Gordy, son of Motown founder Berry Gordy) told Rolling Stone about the lyrics to "Party Rock Anthem." "The 'just' was key. I made it a command to focus people on what to do now that we’re here together."
