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)

Mars Attacks was a great picture of 50's flicks. I loved it, especially the totally unexpected "cure."

The Core Stunk, but it's perfectly OK to do machine sewing to.

Evolution is going to become a cult classic. The trailers showed nothing of the true nature of the film, neither the slapstick or the 50's metier of government scientists really creating a SNAFU.

Independence Day has some great moments (the speech referenced above, the determination of the girlfriend to go beyond the stereotype of a lap dancer), but it, too, is a great housecleaning or machine sewing movie.
