Armageddon (1998)

Watch Armageddon
I love good father-daughter relationships onscreen and off-screen because thankfully, I have a good relationship with mine. Probably not the best there is, but it is good, praise God! Grace and Harry don't have the best relationship either, but their love for each other is very, very obvious.

Wikipedia compared this movie to DEEP IMPACT.  I don't know with you, but I liked the story of Deep Impact and the movie as whole better than this, but I can't say I hate it.

I have nothing more to say.

I am not an expert about drilling or any thing astronomical, so let's leave those things be.

Let me share with you a couple of songs from the movie and their lyrics. Below those songs, if you are interested, I copy-pasted from Wikipedia the scientific accuracy of the box office hit. 
I could stay awake just to hear you breathing
Watch you smile while you are sleeping
While you're far away dreaming
I could spend my life in this sweet surrender
I could stay lost in this moment forever
Every moment spent with you is a moment I treasure

Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing

Lying close to you feeling your heart beating
And I'm wondering what you're dreaming
Wondering if it's me you're seeing
Then I kiss your eyes
And thank God we're together
I just want to stay with you in this moment forever
Forever and ever

Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing

I don't want to miss one smile
I don't want to miss one kiss
I just want to be with you
Right here with you, just like this
I just want to hold you close
Feel your heart so close to mine
And just stay here in this moment
For all the rest of time

Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
'Cause I'd miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing
'Cause even when I dream of you
The sweetest dream will never do
I'd still miss you baby
And I don't want to miss a thing

Don't want to close my eyes
I don't want to fall asleep
I don't want to miss a thing
Songwriters: WARREN, DIANE EVE


Find myself all alone
In darkness without you
Now I can't turn away
From what I must do
You know I'd give my life for you
More than words can say
I've shown you how to love someone
I know you'll find a way

Say goodbye
Close your eyes
Remember me
Walk away
The sun remains
Remember me

I'll live on somewhere in your heart
You must believe
Remember me

No way I can change my mind
I don't have the answers
If you could see through my eyes
You'd let go of your fears
And though I have to leave you now
With the thought of each other
I miss your touch
You call my name
I am with you forever

Say goodbye
Close your eyes
Remember me
Walk away
The sun remains
Remember me

With the change we can't explain 
Remember me

I'll live on somewhere in your heart
You must believe
Remember me

You know I'd give my life for you
More than words can say
I showed you how to love someone
I know you'll find a way

Say goodbye
Close your eyes
Remember me
Walk away
The sun remains
Remember me

Be there to watch over you
Remember me
Feel I'm gone
My heart lives on
Remember me

Don't you think of this as the end
I'll come into your dreams
Remember me

Close your eyes....
Say goodbye....
Remember me
Say you will
Say you will
Say you will

Close your eyes
Remember me
Say you will
Say you will
Say you will

Say goodbye
Remember me

Scientific accuracy

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, Michael Bay admitted that the central premise of the film, "that [NASA] could actually do something in a situation like this," was unrealistic. Robert Roy Pool, a contributing screenwriter, stated that his script, in which an anti-gravity device is used to deflect a comet from a collision course with Earth, was "much more in line with top-secret research." Additionally, near the end of the credits there is a disclaimer stating, "The National Aeronautics and Space Administration's cooperation and assistance does not reflect an endorsement of the contents of the film or the treatment of the characters depicted therein."
In 2012, following a mathematical analysis of the situation, an article titled "Could Bruce Willis Save the World?" was published in the Special Physics Topics Journal. It found that for Willis' approach to be effective, he would need to be in possession of an H-bomb a billion times stronger than the Soviet Union's "Big Ivan", the biggest ever detonated on Earth. Using estimates of the asteroid's size, density, speed and distance from Earth based on information in the film, postgraduate students from the University of Leicester found that to split the asteroid in two with both pieces clearing Earth, would require 800 trillion terajoules of energy. In contrast the total energy output of "Big Ivan", which was tested by the Soviet Union in 1961, was only 418,000 terajoules.
