Ep. 90 — Movie Redemption: ARMAGEDDON (1998)
This week, our Psychotronic Summer series sees us taking a look at one of the biggest summer blockbusters of all time, Michael Bay's ARMAGEDDON!
While it was a major succes with audiences at the time, becoming the highest grossing film of 1998, ARMAGEDDON's stock has fallen over the last two decades and it's mostly seen in a poor light these days, although it does have its defenders.
One of those defenders happens to be a co-host of this show! Listen to hear his argument (and the counter argument), as ARMAGEDDON gets nominated for a Movie Redemption!
It's been a while since we did a Movie Redemption episode, so here's a refresher: these are films that have a reputation for being pretty bad, but one or both of our hosts feels like it's getting a bad rap. So while it may be crazy to argue that it's Psychotronic Hall of Fame worthy, it is at least worthy of a Movie Redemption.
As always, the final decision is in your hands. Let us know if you think ARMAGEDDON is better than its reputation would have you believe!
Come back next week for the results and the next entry into our Psychotronic Summer series!
