And You Call Yourself a Film Buff?! – INDEPENDENCE DAY

With the Fourth of July on the horizon, I felt that this was a perfect time to finally see a movie I have heard so much about. To be honest, I am not sure why this movie has escaped me for so long. I remember it growing up, but I guess I never really had the opportunity to watch it. I simply can’t think of a better way to celebrate America’s independence other than watching a movie about earth’s independence — from aliens.

Independence Day follows three characters on their mission to save Earth and civilization from being wiped out by extraterrestrials. The film follows President Thomas J. Whitmore (Bill Pullman), fighter pilot Captain Steve Hiller (Will Smith), and scientist David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum) as they do their part in stopping the invasion. All of these storylines seem independent through the film, but end up connecting in a huge way.
