FWIW, my 20 year old son just saw 'Armageddon' and reported it to be the
best movie he's seen in a long time!
This is from one who has sat and listened and learned at the feet of
several of the best meteorite hunter/educator/scientist/tale spinners on
this list for the last 13 years.
When questioned about the scientific inaccuracies, he shrugged his
shoulders and said "Didn't make it a bad movie"
A good movie is not to be taken lightly!
