Armageddon is probably the best at using the "What-If" scenario when writing a synopsis for a potential summer blockbuster. What if an Asteroid the size of Texas is hurtling toward Earth, which will end all man kind upon impact is averted by sending a ragtag bunch of Oil Drillers to land on the Asteroid to save the day? Come on...that's awesone sh*t right there! It's so ludicrous and far fetch that no one can take it seriously. You do have to keep an open mind when watching this one and not feel obligated to dissect it with sound logic and probabilities. You get pass that and you have a kick ass End-of-the-World flix to entertain you.

Everyone mentions the Animal Crackers scene when bringing up Armageddon. Is it really that bad? Oh, hell yeah. Reeeeeeeeeally bad. Painfully so. But as bad as that may be, to me the ultimate groan inducing moment is the "Leaving On a Jet Plane" scene. That was awful and embarrassing to see everyone, especially Ben Affleck singing out of key to Liv Tyler. As much as I dig this movie, I can't in good conscious give it a perfect rating. If these 2 scenes had been cut out of the final print of the movie, then I would gladly give it 5 Stars. The 3rd act of the movie is just kick ass and this one is all Bruce Willis, baby! 'John McClain' in space! Wheeeeeee!!!!

This is a definite Buy. But I still don't get why this is part of the Criterion Collection. Oh well.............

Always a fun flick to watch. A guilty pleasure for me.
