Caught up playing the Sims! Also just discovered The Mortal Instruments series, and I'm hooked! Therefore, short entry today.

#24. Armageddon (1998)

"We have a national security matter."
"Good for you."

SYNOPSIS: ASA discovered that there is an asteroid roughly the size of Texas heading towards the Earth, and when it does hit the Earth, the planet itself and all of its inhabitants will be obliterated. Scientists decide to blow the asteroid with the warhead inside the asteroid itself. The only man to do it, is an oil driller named Harry Stamper and his group of misfit drillers and geologists. As he and his drill team prepare for space excavation, the asteroid is still heading towards the Earth. When the crew are launched into outer space, they are determined to destroy this asteroid.

WHY IS IT ON THE LIST: This is one of those movies that just turns me into an emotional wreck - when I'm not crying because someone died or something really moving happened, I'm cackling like a banshee because holy shit those guys are really, really funny. I love the way the drill team interacts with each other; they're like this big ol' family that loves each other and fights and still manages to saving the freaking world. Also I love how they all consider Liv Tyler's character to be their daughter; how they all practically raised her. Bruce Willis is the bomb in this movie (no pun intended). Classic disaster movie.
