Armageddon
« on: March 30, 2008, 10:38:24 PM »
This evening I went for a easy going, subwoofing no-brainer.

Armageddon


Bruce Willis    ...    Harry S. Stamper
Billy Bob Thornton   ...    Dan Truman, NASA Administrator
Ben Affleck   ...    A.J. Frost
Liv Tyler   ...    Grace Stamper
Will Patton   ...    Charles 'Chick' Chapple
Steve Buscemi   ...    Rockhound
William Fichtner   ...    Colonel William Sharp, Shuttle Freedom Pilot
Owen Wilson   ...    Oscar Choi, Geologist
Michael Clarke Duncan   ...    Jayotis 'Bear' Kurleenbear
Peter Stormare   ...    Lev Andropov, Russian Cosmonaut
Ken Hudson Campbell   ...    Max Lennert (as Ken Campbell)
Jessica Steen   ...    Jennifer Watts, Shuttle Freedom Co-Pilot
Keith David   ...    Lt. General Kimsey
Chris Ellis   ...    Walter Clark
Jason Isaacs   ...    Dr. Ronald Quincy, Research

What is it about?
An astroid the size of Texas is going to crash into Earth. It's a global killer, nothing will survive. The only plan NASA has is to drill a hole in it and blow it up with a nuke. And the best driller in the world is Harry Stamper and his bunch of nutcases. But they get the job done.

What do I think?
Very unrealistic and very US-patriotic. Aside from this a very good popcorn movie with a good soundtrack. Some people don't like Bruckheimer or Bay movies for that matter because they expect them to be something that they don't even want to be. I nonethless like such movies but I also agree that they could be better if they wouldn't show the US flag every two minutes (Independence Day had the same problem).

Abraham Lincoln once said The trouble with quotes from the internet is that you never know if they're genuine.

(Independence Day had the same problem).
...and that was even made by a German :laugh:

I will watch bits and pieces of Armageddon when it happens to be on TV. I will not make time for it. I prefer the first half over the second.
 
I thoroughly enjoyed Transformers.
