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 don't know what this says about me but..

I enjoyed this movie. I have seen it many times, and like it every time I watch it. On the flip side, I didn't like Mars attacks, I haven't seen the core and I didn't like the latest creation of War of the Worlds. When it comes to movies and me, I have 2 sides: 1. I want a movie that is factual or at least probable that will knock me off my feet. And 2. I want a movie to entertain me. Independence day fell into the 2nd catagory for me. It was big budget enough to be entertaining. I also liked (gulp) Armageddon and many other "stupid" movies that I found very entertaining. I really liked the fantasy of this movie. Independence Day reminded me a little of Explorers, which is also as unbelievable as 3 middle school kids fly into outerspace in an old tilt a whirl and meet aliens who have learned english by watching american television via intercepted satellite. signals.
