ID4 has so much corn and plot holes it made me wince...
I'll be damned if I'll subject myself to another go at it...

ID4 is a wonderful, obnoxious movie, but I can't say I'm excited about one sequel to it, let alone two. Similar stories like this have popped up before, so I'll just assume this is old news being re-purposed unless it's confirmed elsewhere.

Yeah, that story has been around since the movie came out, so I take it with a grain of salt. But why not, ID4 is wonderful, stupid, entertaining trash, make it a whole franchise with every iteration more ridiculous than the one before...

Hopefully Bill Pullman will be back, only he'll play the president like Oswald Danes

Re: TWO Sequels to iD4?!

I love Independence Day for what it is: a super fun, brain-dead popcorn flick. Nothing more nothing less.

That being said, I don't give two shits whether or not Will Smith returns. Let me know when the real star is signed up to return: Jeff Goldblum.

Britain was saved by the Doctor. The rest of the world went to hell.

You should check out the Independence Day UK radio play.

The UK doesn't quite save the day, but the BBC's Sky At Night presenter Patrick Moore goes hand-to-hand with one of the aliens, then figures out a way of evading the alien fightercraft before hopping into a RAF fighter and taking them on in the air.

Toyah Wilcox and Colin Baker also help to save the day but, unlike Sir Patrick, not playing themselves. That would have been stretching credulity.

Holy crap, whoever coded that page needs to be smacked upside his head, then replaced by an average fourth-grader!

Yeah, going from the page source, it's not really a good advert for Web Studio.

I thought the Apple was the real star of the movie?
