Wow - I can't believe so many of you hate Armageddon. I actually kind of liked that movie and my wife really likes it - in fact I just purchased the 2-disk Criterion collection DVD.
Criterion actually released a 2-disc collection?.? WTF? This is the company that released Rashomon and Stan Brakage shorts.
Piper Perabo and Bridget Moynihan are a couple of my favorite actresses, and the others aren't too bad either, including that Czech girl, the concept was kinda neat too. I didn't think it was a captivating movie but it was interesting nonetheless. John Goodman was amusing, but he usually is.
That girl is actually Polish. I gotta give props to my country of ancestry, especially for putting out such a hottie. It was an alright movie, not the worst I've seen. I've seen tons of bad movies, but a lot of them don't fall under the guidelines for this. I'll try to think of some that do though. p.s. Lost In Translation was certainly not the worst movie I ever saw, but it wasn't what I was expecting, after hearing all my friends and co-horts raving about it. I didn't need to see 5 musical interludes of Scarlett Johanson walking around Tokyo with that alienated look on her face. Yes, she feels alone, we got that in the first 20 minutes of the movie. I did like the end, when Bill chased after her, and what he wispered in her ear will go down as a great mystery of cinema. Plus, every movie should start with a close up of a nice woman's ass in panties. Maybe I should watch it again,and maybe like it more.
