I’m taking Monday off, since I’ll be up until late into the night on the 4th of July watching fireworks with my family. And then of course I’ll need to watch the ending to one of my favorite all time movies, Independence Day. We started watching it Saturday night, but could not stay awake since we’re well into our 80’s.
Or these children we sired just make us feel that old.
Anyhoo. Fiddledaddy and I went to see Independence Day on July 4th, 1996. In an actual movie theater. Alone, since the children we bore had not even been thought of then. I remember being blown away by the special affects. Watching it now, I realize how far special affects have come in the last 14 years since it was released. Nevertheless, I still love that movie. Favorite character? Brent Spiner (Data, for you Star Trek Next Generation fans) as Dr. Brackish Okun. Brilliant. Interestingly, Jensen also likes to wear his pants up around his arm pits. Coincidence?
Time for a poll. What is your favorite movie that made you stand up and cheer???
