More Info IMDb

When an asteroid the size of Texas threatens to wipe out all life on Earth, only one thing can save us.  No, it's not scientists, NASA, or astronauts; it’s Bruce Willis packing nuclear weapons!  In the Michael Bay universe, where science, logic and plausibility are dirty words, the only requirements are bad writing, utter insanity and plenty of explosions.

Join astronomer Andy Howell, a host of the TV show KNOWN UNIVERSE, and Copernicus on Ain't It Cool News, as he rips apart every ridiculous aspect of his most hated movie, ARMAGEDDON. He leads a discussion with a lynch mob of astrophysicists in town for the American Astronomical Society Meeting, many of whom are doing the very research on Earth-threatening asteroids butchered in the film.
