I know I’ll get mocked

— Posted by John Campea

I know I’ll get mocked for this, but…
It was a quite night on the home front this evening, so my family watched Armageddon on TV. You know what, I really like the movie. I know that most people usually talk about how dumb it is, or cheesy it is, but I thought it was a lot of fun. I thought the characters were very likeable, the tension felt real, the stages of the story unfolded at a nice pace, it was funny and the visuals weren’t half bad (in some parts the effects were actually wonderful). Is it a little corny? Sure it is, but that didn’t take away from the “fun” factor for me.

I always forget just how stacked the cast in the movie is too. Think about it, the cast includes no less than Bruce Willis, Billy Bob Thornton, Liv Tyler, Ben Affleck, Will Patton, Steve Buscemi, Owen Wilson and Michael Clarke Duncan. So mock me all you want! I love Armageddon! There, I said it, and I’m proud. Well, maybe not “proud”, but I said it anyway.
