In step a team of rugged Americans; ... read more

All you need to know about the plot of Independence Day is: "Aliens come to destroy humans. Humanity kicks ass (after near devastation)".

This is a summer blockbuster in the purest sense. The acting is decent (Judd Hirsch is a stand out as Jeff Goldblum's straight talking father), the action is over the top and some of the plot devices are cliched.

But still, Independ... read more

I remember, when this movie was released, it was pretty huge but since it looked really stupid, I really didn’t care for it. Eventually, after a few weeks after it was released in France, I received the VHS in the mail, sent by my buddies from the US. It was one of those American VHS with a cardboard box, instead of the plastic ones you had in Europe, and there was even a pretty neat hologram of... read more

"1996: The aliens are coming and their goal is to invade and destroy Earth. Fighting superior technology, mankind's best weapon is the will to survive. Fun Fact: The scene in which Will Smith drags the unconscious alien across the desert was filmed on the salt flats near Great Salt Lake in Utah. Smith's line, "And what the hell is that *smell*?" was unscripted. Great Salt Lake is home to tiny crustaceans called brine shrimp. When they die, the bodies sink to the bottom of the lake (which isn't v"
