greatest blockbuster of our generation
i'm such a tart. enjoyed scientist j mascis.
killer fire fills the tunnel, but they survive by hiding in a cupboard
Arnie dodging a nuclear blast by jumping out of the way at the end of Predator
the last hour of this is the most emotional film experience ever
humankind, working together.. to kill aliens.. in a totally implausible fashion. God bless America
Is that glass bulletproof?
Adam Baldwin <3
but he's not one of THE Baldwins
and none of them are super busy for work these days...
working title: Independence Day 2: WELCOME TO EARTH (Again)
ID4 II: Requiem
NOT UNTIL THE FAT LADY SINGS
LETS SEE IF YOU CAN FLY THAT THING UNDERCOVER
YOU'D ALL BE DEAD IF IT WASN'T FOR MY DAVID
and the FL asks if she's a ballet dancer, and she's all like 'no I'm a slutty one' and the FL is all like 'GIRL SAY WHAAAAAAAAAAAAT!?'
But worryingly watchable.
ABOUT BLOODY TIME
Just imagine how I’d feel about it if I watched it now.
I GOTTA CALL MY LAWYER!
nah, forget my lawyer.
and when mankind works together to destroy the aliens.
and they're both wearing vests with flannel shirts and shorts.
to which the waxwork national security adviser replies "Actually, Mr President, that isn't *entirely* accurate' and then GOldblum perfectly delivers the line 'Which part??'
is a reasonable contender. it's got everything: action, tears, romance, a massive fucking asteroid.
."The RAF succeed in bringing down one of the alien fighters, and Patrick Moore has a close (and given his age, surprisingly violent) encounter with the alien pilot"
I was on holiday in St Ives when the film came out, and I remember listening to the end of the top 40 on my walkman's radio and then some people came on talking about space and I got bored and turned it off
what if we uploaded a computer virus into the mothership?
you just need to install direct x and everything will sort itself out.
so in fact that's utter bullshit.
based on clips of Jeff Goldblum's character saving the world in the film.
In the whole history of Hollywood the only film I remember showing Windows on a computer was True Lies and even then it was windws 3.11 in Arabic!
Otherwise you only have Apple or some generic fake OS they invented just for the movie.
whatever operating system Goldblum was running it derived from alien technology. Imagine if he got to the mothership but failed his mission because the aliens were running Windows and he had a Mac.
IT'S A UNIX SYSTEM
Mainly because he delivers lines with very distinctive/odd cadences and rhythm and stuff. That's what I want.
No one could have delivered that line the way Goldblum did (except maybe a young Olivier), it's just two words, but they're *his* two words.
Any film regardless of how pish it may have been up to a point is instantly better for having jeff goldblum in it.
In less than an hour, aircraft from here will join others from around the world, and you will be launching the largest aerial battle in the history of mankind. Mankind, that word should have new meaning for all of us today. We can't be consumed by our petty differences any more. We will be united in our common interest. Perhaps it's fate that today is the 4th of July, and you will once again be fighting for our freedom. Not from tyranny, oppression, or persecution, but from annihilation. We're fighting for our right to live, to exist?and should we win the day, the 4th of July will no longer be known as an American holiday, but as the day when the world declared in one voice, 'We will not go quietly into the night! We will not vanish without a fight! We're going to live on, we're going to survive.' Today we celebrate our independence day!
GOD BLESS AMERIKUH
it was a crummy time to be living there <3
likes to make films about yanks being godlike heroes all the time like 'the patriot'. I suppose he can gloss over their history enough to get away with it, as opposed to his own.
