I remember, several times, asking if other people had seen this movie. Thankfull, nobody said they had. It's like it was just a bad dream that a few people in my family had. Where they took the premise for the X Men comics, half the ideas and scenes from the cartoon, and used the characters from the X Men Spin off and made Generation X into a made for TV movie.
The plot involved a powerful machine that let you have power over dreams, but had an addictive quality. And there was an evil man played by a normally good actor who ruined his performance by thinking he's Jim Carrey. And even though it was only two hours long, it seemed like I was in purgatory.
I saw Skin and Jubilee given the major parts, while Banshee flirted moronically with Emma Frost. But non of the dialog seemed to go together, and existed only for the sake of showing "This is what the people in Generation X" say. It didn't have to be.
And for years, I waited patiently for the announced spin off series. Perhaps they could atone for the sins of the pilot film. Alas, it never happened, and I believed it to be just a horrible dream I wish it was. I wish this movie never existed. I wish it was nothing more then a bad memory. But it's a bad movie that lives on in the form of VHS.
