Summer means blockbusters, which means explosions, and no one does them bigger than Michael Bay. For all their technical virtuosity, his string of “Transformers” flicks have also been ridiculous, silly and tedious, but there was a time when his movies were ridiculous, silly and fun. And according Screen Junkies, the last time that happened was 1998’s “Armageddon” and they’ve got the Honest Trailer for the film to make their case.
Sure, “Armageddon” is a movie where space dementia is a real thing, and it’s somehow easier to train oil workers to go into outer space and drill a hole rather than teach astronauts to use a drill, but that’s neither here nor there. The bottom line is shit blows up real good, including the title of the movie, and it’s still somehow enjoyable no matter how ludicrous it becomes. Also, I totally forgot that Bay pops up as a NASA scientist in his own movie. Perfect! Watch below.
