Film Micrœview #219: Independence Day (1996)

Rating: Good.

Practical effects – achieved some remarkably awesome images. But some SFX aged badly. What’s cheesiest though is some of the filmmaking – white flashes w/ sound effects as transitions throughout the beginning, e.g.

Inspired by MovieBob’s review, realizing how this is much less an attempt at making a novel sci-fi horror experience as much as using its tropes to make social commentary.
