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

Description: A group of intrepid humans attempts to save the Earth from vicious extraterrestrials in this extremely popular science-fiction adventure. 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.

BradWesley123's Movie Journal- June 2019 (39 movies items)

" Special EditionDVD- 2hrs. 34min. There's nothing here that would be recommendable over the original version. Some scenes go on too long, nothing new feels essential, and the Randy Quaid family subplot has some baffling inclusions. Stick to the original."

" Date: 7/4/2019 Viewed: 4K HUD Re-watch Note: I decide to rewatch this movie for 4th of July since it has been years since I seen it. This movie looked and sound amazing in 4K UHD because everything looks so clean and clear. It felt like I was a watching a brand-new movie. This is not a good movie at all because the movie has a messy script with some bad plot holes. I still enjoy this movie because the movie has fun characters and cool action scenes. Not to mention this movie is little bit "
