    Here it is, way past midnight, with the sun set to come up in a few hours, and I am up watching Independence Day, a movie that I've likely seen dozens of times already. Then it struck me.... today is the 4th of July. Apparently it has become a tradition to commemorate one of the most important events in the history of our country with a movie that depicts the near annihilation of the entire world. :unsure:

    The odd part is that, for as many times as I've seen it, I always end up grabbing a drink and sitting back watching it as though it is the first time viewing it. Guess that is the sign of a good action movie.

    I've not seen this in years, completely bonkers towards the end but still a seriously good popcorn action movie.

    I've read somewhere that there is an Independence Day 2 in the making? http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1628841/

    I liked this film apart from the daft ending, and yeah i heard they are working on a remake as well. Will have to get the original out of my DVD collection and give it a viewing again.

    I liked this movie a lot. I watch it every 4th of July, I watch other times too, it has been a kind of tradition watching on the 4th. My favorites characters are David and his father Julius. I like Jeff Goldblum and Judd Hirsch anyway.
