Movie Review: ID4

I have finally watched the movie: Independence Day.

To show how much I can ignore popular culture.. it has only taken me 10 years to bother with this film.

I'd say it was a bother.. .but it was exactly what I always expected it to be. a "S*#t blows up" film. Personally, the film actually annoyed me with a lot of "Nationalism" ra-ra feelings.

The whole film really adds up to a 50's alien-invading film with 90's effects. And as much as I'm the kind to cheer to an Apple Macintosh Powerbook XXXX (Love the model number) that logs into the alien technology.... The reality of things just became to inane to believe.

I'm not sure which seems better in the long run... this, Mars Atacks, or The Core.

Personally, I really don't think Hollywood even wants to try anymore.

No surprises, no hidden agendas, and in case you are going to try to go longer than me....Yes Virginia, there really was an Area 51.

And no one ever wondered if that's what got them pissed off at Earth in the first place.

(Resource conquest? How quaint)

Rating... -$0.50 (Have someone bribe you to watch it)

I LOVE Independance Day!!!! Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum and Will Smith! What more can you ask for?? hehe. Plus, I really like the President's monologue when they are about to kick some alium ass. It gives me the chills to this day.. and I am not patriotic. AND Will Smith is pretty funny in it. He makes the movie for me.. Tell me you didn't at least snicker when he was talking about "draggin' through the burnin' desert with yo dreadlocks hangin out the back a' my parachute"

For whatever retarted reason, that speech makes me cry every time I see it. I think I felt vested enough in the characters to react to their situation. I also cry for like the entire last half hour or so of Armageddon - from AJ finally being accepted by Bruce willis, to the return to earth as heros, to the credits with pictures of the wedding.

We should watch movies together! :)
