I Finally Watched ‘Independence Day’!

So…there are some classics that I still haven’t seen and Independence Day was one of them.

Now, I have seen bits and pieces of it but because I had no interest in the film when it was on TV I pretty much had no idea what was going on. So yesterday, while searching for something to watch on HBO Max, I decided to finally watch the film and well, I enjoyed it!

I am not going to say the movie wasn’t cheesy because it was but it embraced its cheesiness and found a way to tell a compelling story that had me on the edge of my seat.

I can see why the film made Will Smith a superstar because he did such a great job in the film. I was often blown away by how dire the film was and how many people perished during the movie. I hate to admit it but I even cried when the First Lady died. Yeah, I’m sentimental and that scene was sad.

All in all, I understand why this movie has become iconic and like its title, it surely embraced the spirit of patriotism and bravery. Man I was cheering at the end. What a fun film.

I’ll give it 85 out of 100 and 4 out 5 stars.

I thank you for reading and I hope you have a spectacular day.

A Movie Ranking: Will Smith: Updated

Will Smith is one of the few actors I can say I’ve never seen a bad movie involving him. No, not all of the films are the best movies I’ve ever seen but he chooses his films very well. I’ve seen so many of his movies, some even very recently, and because of his newest film, Gemini Man, which literally comes out today, it makes perfect sense to celebrate the renowned actor for this week’s A Movie Ranking. Enjoy!
