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. 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.
