‘Flash Gordon’ Synopsis

The Earth is in jeopardy. The evil alien bad guy Ming The Merciless has decided to play an intergalactic game of Wii with the weather and geological elements of the planet. Ming does this simply because he is bored, and he has a magic glowing ring that he received from a box of Cracker Jacks on Arboria. He plans to toy with the Earth and ultimately destroy it. What an asshole!

Unaware of the danger, New York Jets starting quarterback Flash Gordon and journalist Dale Arden board a small airplane from an airport apparently in the middle of fucking nowhere. As with everything in this film, things move fast. Flash essentially confesses his love to Dale within minutes, but before the two can get married and begin having kids, Ming comes along and incinerates/kidnaps/suck out of the god damn plane the two pilots.
