    I'll bet you're long since glad you dropped the "Great" moniker from your thread titles eh Jim? [​IMG]

    Unlike some people posting on these threads, I can enjoy a good summer blockbuster at the cinema and than go home and watch Seven Days in May. I've seen 3 Michael Bay action flicks at the cinema, The Rock, Armageddon and Pearl Harbour. While I didn't think much of Pearl Harbour apart from the spectacular 40min attack sequence I did enjoy the other two. Eye-popping, ear-splitting spectacle, it's what the cinemas all about innit? Or is it really about two Frenchies sipping tea and chatting for 90mins? [​IMG]

    Rankings

    1)The Rock
    2)Armageddon
    3)The Island (2005)
    4)Pearl Harbour
    5)Bad Boys II
    6)Bad Boys


    Average Rating 3.5 out of 5

    Seen Bad Boys and The Rock, both of which were passably entertaining, and Armageddon which has got to be one of the biggest shit piles ever made. [​IMG] to infinity.

    [​IMG] Oh dear not your cup of tea than Stevie? Not happy seeing Paris hit by a chunk of asteroid maybe? Well looking at the film titles in your sig file... I'm not surprised you hated it. We're a totally different species of film fan, I've never heard of any of them. I'd avoid War of the Worlds if I were you, or anything with loud noises.[​IMG]

    I haven't been posting in these threads but I'll be happy to pile on. [​IMG]

    The Rock [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] - The casting redeems this feature to a large degree.
    Bad Boys [​IMG] [​IMG] - mildly diverting entertainment.
    Pearl Harbor [​IMG] - Not sure why I viewed this after the next film in the list. (??)

    Armageddon - Can I assign negative stars?

    Amen to Steve G, and Zen. One of the worst films ever made. Truly awful in its manipulation of the viewer with absolutely no grounding in reality. A grotesque monstrosity that attempts to pander to its audience at every turn. Just a complete pile of crap whose only redeeming feature is its photography. Look up hack in the dictionary and you'll see a photo of Michael Bay filming this feature.

    - Walter.

    erm... Zen? Walter enjoyed The Rock and Bad Boys, and Billy owns a copy of Armageddon.[​IMG]

    btw. I wasn't bashing, I was ribbing, big difference.

    and that means......what exactly? I flippin' own that garbage Armageddon Criterion also. Still hate the bugger [​IMG]

    Mate, I agree too, if we're all gonna rate Michael Bay, we should all have a sense of humor. Armageddon though, is one of the few films that induces anger. I'm saving it(the disc) for the next crack-head who bumps his Hip-Hop at 6:00 a.m. at the gas station downstairs. I'm gonna take someone's head off with that disc; Master of the Flying Guillotine style.

    Yeah you're right. I think I've overstayed my welcome here, 2 or is it 3 months has been more than enough. I seem to have inadvertantly joined the wrong group of people, apologies to the posters I've rubbed the wrong way and sorry Jim, I've really enjoyed participating in your threads, but it's time for me to move on, adios amigo.[​IMG]

    Don't feel bad Steve, not everyone hates Armageddon. Personally, I enjoyed it for what it was clearly intended to be - a fun summer action 'popcorn' big budget flick.

    Anyone that saw this film expecting real science, Shakespearean dialogue, and Bergmanesque dramatics clearly should not be reviewing this film. [​IMG] For that matter they shouldn't be going to the movies and should instead be helping NASA blow up comets...

    US Spacecraft to Blow up Comet

    Is the story in Armageddon far fetched? You bet, and I guess that's its charm. After all, aren't most Sci-Fi films farfetched - certainly the ones intended for pure entertainment. Just watch Forbidden Planet sometime. [​IMG]

    For this type of film, an action packed summer blockbuster I'd give it at least 3 out of 5 stars.

    (can't belive I got pulled into one of these 'director' threads on the basis of defending Armageddon from the critic lynch mob) [​IMG]

    The Island (2005) - Story sounds interesting
    Bad Boys II (2003) - 2/4
    Pearl Harbor (2001) - 3.5/4 (Can't beat the attack scenes, plus it has Kate)
    Armageddon (1998) - Decent popcorn flick
    The Rock (1996) - Okay but gets tiring after repeated viewings
    Bad Boys (1995) - Good despite having Tea Leoni in it

    Some of us would consider that a redeeming feature. [​IMG]

    1. Armageddon-not afraid to say that I LOVE this film, and most people I know in the real real world, who don't waste tons of free time on the Internet, feel the exact same way that I do! Ask ANY pretty girl on the street (if you can find one) who does not care less about fucking around on the Net, and more than likely she'll tell you the same thing. Personally, I ain't yet met a pretty girl who disliked Armageddon, so fellas, keep on being elitist snobs and shit on this film to feel better about yourselves, I'll keep on using it as a classic (and VERY reliable) "first date movie". :b

    2. The Rock-very good

    3. Bad Boys-not so good
