Independence Day: Resurgence (2016)

“That’s… definitely bigger than the last one.” | ID4 Resurgence (2016)

I knew that Independence Day: Resurgence was going to happen. One of the most iconic 90’s movie, an assured cast, good SFX, a captive US 4th of July audience and a decent box office haul meant a sequel was going to happen. So here we all are twenty years later, ready for the follow up with new and old cast members together. Does it work? Was it worth the wait? Trailer and review after the break.

Force 10 From Navarone (1978)

“Miller, THAT USELESS GIT!” – Force 10 From Navarone (1978)

When Star Wars burst onto the scene, science fiction movies were suddenly the name of the game and the studios started churning them out, some good, some bad. But through a confluence of accident, delay and great timing, one last film would hark back to the days of derring-do and giving the Jerries what for while the future was busy being artificial, corporate and paranoid. Oh, and it starred Han Solo. As in THE Han Solo. With Quint from Jaws. Just look at the trailer for Force 10 From Navarone, OK? See you after the jump.
