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

Borrowing liberally from War of the Worlds, Aliens, and every sci-fi invasion film inbetween, director Roland Emmerich and producer and co-writer Dean Devlin present a visually slick, fast-paced adventure filled with expensive special effects and large-scale action sequences. While some critics objected to the film's lack of originality and lapses in logic, the combination of grand visual spectacle and crowd-pleasing storytelling proved irresistible to audiences, resulting in an international ...

"23.7. Disney+ Uusintakatselu? Watched-täppä painettuna ilman pisteytystä, tiedä häntä. "Ironisesti" kornina paskaviihteenä katsottuna ihan hauska tapaus, mutta annin harmautensa vuoksi ei tarjoa ylimääräistä hassuenergiaa ja naurutkin jäävät yllättävän miedoiksi. Vakavasti arvioiden uskomatonta paskaa, mutta siihen ei enää lähdetä."

"Earth has become inhabited by an uprising of AI, and most surviving humans have successfully migrated to another planet. A space station overseeing Earth, whose captain is played by George Clooney, finds itself under attack by several of these machines, and so what they decide is the easiest way they can destroy these machines in such a way that they go barely noticed.........is to use a secretly located machine to turn themselves into sentient tangerines. Rolling, faceless, talking tangerines. "

"   Independence Day is a holiday that is mostly associated with the United States of America during the Fourth of July. However, in this budget-bloated blockbuster from the 90's, it's a day that goes global when almost the entire planet of Earth gets blown up by massive sized U.F.O's.  And it is that worldwide catastaphre that causes us humans to realize that, if we want to survive as a species, it is now time to roll up our sleeves, get our shit together, and go "kick E.T.'s ass".
