Armageddon is one of my favorite movies of all time. It’s so entertaining and heartbreaking (um, did you see Ben Affleck sing “Leaving on a Jet Plane”? Because it was heart wrenching), yet wholly absurd. Not to mention Affleck, Liv Tyler, and Bruce Willis hog all the spotlight in this huge ensemble cast, when the most important character to the film is Chick (Will Patton).
Chick is totally underrated in this movie. He’s the only one keeping his shit together while everyone else goes insane (See: Steve Buschemi’s space dementia). Level head in tact, Chick delivers some of the greatest lines when NASA remote detonates the nuke without telling the people aboard the asteroid.
Not to be outdone, Billy Bob Thornton totally redeems everything bad/cheesy that happens in Armageddon with this one, simple little line. He is a true badass.
