Independence Day (1996)


Over the fourth of July weekend, aliens invade Earth with intent to destroy, and mankind must fight back.


Entertaining. Rife with scientific inaccuracy. I like the moment when Goldblum says "Must go faster! Must go faster!" which is the exact same line he said in Jurassic Park. Snapshots:


Will Smith ... Captain Steven Hiller
Bill Pullman ... President Thomas J. Whitmore
Jeff Goldblum ... David Levinson
Randy Quaid ... Russell Casse
Brent Spiner ... Dr. Brakish Okun
Mae Whitman ... Patricia Whitmore
Harry Connick Jr. ... Captain Jimmy Wilder
