In 1998 two movies with a similar theme came out. The theme was a large object from space on a collision course with Earth. In both cases a team is sent into space to land on the object, drill into it and blow it to pieces before it hits the Earth and wipes out humanity.
Now Deep Impact has long been one of my favourite movies. It never ceases to move me and the special effects, acting etc. are first rate.
I watched both movies when they came out and thought it was unfair of me at the time to think Armageddon was a pile of poo compared to Deep Impact.
All these years later, I found a copy of Armageddon at a car boot sale and decided to give it a second chance.
It's still a pile of poo. I only got to 55 minutes of the DVD and switched it off.
Did you see the two movies? What do you think of them?
