9. ‘Armageddon’: Goodbye Paris
There will never be a more "Michael Bay" movie than this 1998 interstellar disaster flick, which still boasts the most total blasts of any of his features. That’s probably because the director refused to limit his destruction to outside the Earth's hemisphere, despite setting most of the film on an actual asteroid. Not content to do away with a less picturesque European city or even to smash his space junk "near" France's metro capital as promised, Bay just takes out the whole City of Light in less than 30 seconds. We'll never have Paris.
