9. Armageddon - (1998)- 126 points
(10 of 40 lists. Highest ranking - #1 Cthulhu Bob)

Directed by Michael Bay
Starring Bruce Willis, Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler

Synposis:
"Due to a shuttle's unfortunate demise in outer space, NASA becomes aware of a doomsday asteroid that is on a collision course with Earth. It seems that the only way to knock it off course is to drill into its surface and detonate a nuclear weapon. But as NASA's under-funded yet resourceful team train the world's best drillers for the job, the social order of the world begins to break down as the information reaches the public and hysteria results. As high-ranking officials play politics with the effort, the drilling team all faces deep personal issues which may jeopardize humanity's last chance..."

Possible Sources of Comedy:
-Laws of physics? Who needs them?
-Ok, so there's an asteroid that need's killin'...why are we watching Ben Affleck and Liv Tyler play with animal cookies?
-Hey, the first Rifftrax for a Criterion Collection release!

i didn't submit a sheet but i am SO GLAD to see this ranked so high since this is the one I'd have at #2 or 3 if i did this. I hope it gets done since it begs to be riffed!  :D
