a tad unfair. armageddon was not photographed by Lubezki come on. at times it is a bit corny yes, but the explosions in space are amazing, borderline "zabriskie point". the most recent Star Trek WISHES it was this good. i just had a serious problem with the score. when doc ryan says "my favourite thing in space is silence" and then cue music, how silly is that? not since Boyle's Sunshine had i seen such a mature space film. "children of men" also had it's "cheesy" moments. had it not?
