    I have to say I enjoyed it. It wasn't a masterpiece or anything, but they did a good job of capturing the feeling of being invaded.

    The ending was stupid though. I knew it was coming, and I even said when the kid took off, "If they meet up again at the end, that's gay." And sure enough...

    but overall, it was pretty good. 6/10

    i'd enjoy it more if tom cruise wasn't such a kook. i realize he's acting a part other than himself, but i just can't separate his boobery from his acting anymore.

    i watched it today, i didn't think the movie was good but some of the visuals were cool. i thought the little girl was soooooo annoying, she just screamed over and over again in certain scenes, plus half the time she had an eyes bugging out expression that looked really dumb. i realize she was supposed to be scared but geez.

    A trilogy could be cool if they pulled it off right, but then again, the aliens died at the end of the movie. So I have no idea where they can get material, unless we are going to get a couple of movies about them rebuilding. :dunno:

    yea, it would have been. also, if the aliens didnt all the sudden die all at once 2 minutes before the credits, to be explained by the narrator.




    Independence Day > any other alien invasion movie

    :ugh2: Independence day was just a remake of the original War of the Worlds. Even down to the aliens being brought down by a "virus".
