I have not seen Armageddon, but it's hard to believe that it could be worse than Independence Day.
Ya, Independence Day had me laughing for 90 min. Saw a movie this week on TV, Conair. A group of convicts capture an airplane in an attempt to escape. Lame script in the first half. No script in the second half, just Bing, Bang, Bom. So insipit, had me laughing for most of the movie. So, maybe they did have some value.
