Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Armageddon (1998)

Directed by Michael Bay

Starring Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton, Ben Affleck, Liv Tyler


Typical Bay fare. Cheesy dialogue from over-the-top characters and lots of explosions, delivered with fancy photography and overdramatic music. Bay and Roland Emmerich should have a contest to see who can use more money to make a worse film, and then they both should be shot. Tons of factual and visual errors, but it’s just gotta look cool, right?

Owen Wilson’s got a couple of good lines.

Interesting that it condenses a tremendous amout of story time into its 144 minute running time, yet the movie still seems long and boring. Seems like an Aerosmith video at times.
