Armageddon (1998)
3/10
not impressed
3 January 2002
I realised when into the "action" portion of this movie that it was a comic book and little more. I didn't like it, it was boring and derivative and Willis was surprisingly dull.

Did someone in the script mention "Road-runner"??? Must have been insight.

Olivier Tuinier's poetic and tragic swansong
19 October 1998
Blazen is a film about death.. and also about life but the connection is not trite. 12 year old Maurits loses his mother after a short illness. He lives alone with his father a sensitive painter who cannot himself come to terms with his loss and is unable to help his son in his need. Maurits makes friends with a beautiful and mysterious girl who he meets out in the fields. They spend the summer together but she is shocked by his pre-occupation with morbidity. Maurits begins to take many risks. Life has no meaning for him now. In a climactic moment he tells his father that he wants to be with his mother. Yet Maurits survives....
