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)

It took me 10 years to bother watching "ET".

I still haven't watched that movie... a couple years ago I recorded it, and got through about 10 minutes (about to the part where they are playing um, D&D or something I think, and the boy hears something) and then I got called away... it was a while before I had a chance to watch the rest and when I got around to it, my wife had recorded something else over it. :-(

As far as "Independence Day" goes, I liked "Mars Attacks" much more.

Personally I was much happier with "Men in Black"... it was more whimsical, with no heavy handed off the cuff stuff (e.g. "Nuke em!") or melodramatic speeches, and I liked Tommy Lee Jones performance much better than Bill Pullman's.

For me, highlights of ID4 were seeing Brent Spiner's character introduced, and um, oh I dunno, maybe seeing Jeff Goldblum's character get off the plane from Jurrasic Park and onto Air Force One. ;-)
