Anything is possible. I just read an article on a huge spread of predictions for opening weekend. It's not science really and somewhat unpredictable. There's a huge population who cherish the original, but do they care 20 years later. The kids today do not know about the hype and release of the original. They've probably seen it, just not enamoured with it.

I still think it will be a very good opening. I'm biased. ID will probably be one of the few films I go see at the theater

Oh man, Tracking is just unreliable voodoo, really.  You can gauge interest ahead of time, but you never really know 100% of the time.

I gotta tell you, the Red Letter Media's re;view of the original Independence Day, which I haven't properly seen in ages, is making me want to watch the movie even more.

I probably watch it about once every few years. Got the blu-Ray.

Amazingly, I don't own this.  And I always liked the movie.  I've seen it avery few years, which with my recall feels like once every year.

Given that there won't be another movie I'll want to see in the theater for another three weeks, I'll probably check this out in the theater as well.


Edit: here's another great video, very pro-Independence Day.

Wow, that must have been a thesis for this reviewer.


anyway, I just watched the movie again. Ya know, when you watch a movie a little too much, you start to notice things that may degrade your impressions of the film. I might need to back off watching it so much. Keep the magic alive.

My sentiments exactly.

Well...


F*ck


So disappointed. I started wondering what time it was. Ya know... Looking at the clock. I actually may have dozed off.

Ya know how we talked about studio play books. Well Emmerich and Devlin must have broke out the original script, add a dash here, repeat this, make everything bigger. Way f*ucking bigger. Ludicrous bigger. The new mother ship is sooooo big, it like a hand holding a ball (earth). And it lands on Earth.

The scope of this was so big, I couldn't tell what was going on. The fights were just video game mind boggling chaotic. ID2 was like a mashup of the original, Starship Troopers, a video game Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and these stupid teen movies of late (Divergent, Twilight, etc). All the pilots were super young and spitting out cute comments while in battle.

Gawd, I guess I really hated this sequel. I have zero interest in revisiting this. It certainly missed the magic of the Original. I did not care about one character. Even the president coming back seemed a tad mentally challenged.

You know who the winner is out of all this? You guessed it.....Will Smith. Maybe he's not as dumb as people think.

I guess that's true for Smith. Honestly don't care about his work any longer.

I just opened rotten tomatoes. Wish I did that first. It's quite clear, audiences experienced the same thing I did.

At times I do visit RT for DVD's and its helped confirm and saved me time. For instance, I've got a variety of DVD's sitting here, all very unknown flicks. I know nothing about them. I went to RT to see the ratings. Going with the best scores first. Even the bad ones I'll give a go, just to see if the rating is fair. It rarely is wrong.
