Quote of the Day (Roger Ebert, Blasting a Past Summer Blockbuster)

“Here it is at last, the first 150-minute trailer. ‘Armageddon’ is cut together like its own highlights. Take almost any 30 seconds at random, and you'd have a TV ad. The movie is an assault on the eyes, the ears, the brain, common sense and the human desire to be entertained. No matter what they're charging to get in, it's worth more to get out.”—Pulitzer Prize-winning film critic Roger Ebert (1942-2013), review of Armageddon, July 1, 1998
