Everything you could want from an action/disaster films, and one of my favourite films of all time.

Aliens have launched a unrelenting and unprovoked attack on the world, wiping out most of our major national monuments. Now they have settled over every major city in the world; with the intent of annihilating the entire human race.

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

"INDEPENDENCE DAY - THE MOTHERSHIP DESTROYS THE WHITE HOUSE Let's get one thing straight from the start: Roland Emmerich's 'Independence Day' isn't that good a movie. So why have I seen it so many times? I attribute my apparent willingness to repeatedly subject myself to this film almost entirely to one eight second effect in which an alien mothership blows up the White House. This superbly realised moment is the first image most people think of when 'Independence Day' is mentioned and it encaps"

"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"
