Armageddon (1998) (part 11 of 13)

Jessica’s right about Bruce. The next line out of his mouth is, “Sharp! Get back in here now!” yelled really hard. All in all, it’s a very nuanced performance.

Harry asks/yells to know what’s going on, and Sharp says it’s Secondary Protocol. Harry will lose two guys, Sharp will lose a guy, but hey, orders is orders. Chick says, “This is turning into a serialistic nightmare!” Uh, no. Those old Commander Cody-type serials were much better written and acted than this, to say nothing of the fabulous costumes. And even though this movie is a nightmare, it isn’t a serial. But it’s long enough to be one. [Editor’s Note: Actually, he says it’s a surrealistic nightmare, which is just as dumb, but I think Amanda’s interpretation is funnier. —Albert]

Back at CSI, I mean, NASA, Truman is whispering into his Madonna-earpiece-mic, telling one of the other NASA geeks at the “CAPCOM” station to kill the uplink to the nuke. This apparently will buy some time until they can regain communications with the crew.

If I was a bad movie, I'd find it much easier to write about myself than I do at present. My main interests outside of really bad movies is playing music. I've played guitar for 15 years, performed before far more people than I'm really comfortable with and am currently having fun listening to my 5 year old son bang away on his new starter drum set. Yes, drummers are so hard to find, I had to resort to making my own. When not playing music, I also like to work in my yard and many gardens, try new recipes (never would have thought that would happen), research my genealogy (I get to be related to the beheaded king and queen of France!) and read history books primarily about natural disasters and personal tales. And when I'm not doing any of that, then I'm spending time with my great family. The first movie I remember going to the theater to see was The Black Stallion which we were late to the beginning of and as we were waiting for it to begin again and rewatch it (is that even legal?) we got dragged away by my dad and sister who insisted we come watch Airplane! with them in the other theater. Oh, and I cried so hard at the end of Oh, Heavenly Dog! that my sister had to call my mom to come pick me up. As a kid, I never had a Big Wheel. I still want one.
