Re: Independence Day

About the ending scene with Randy Quaid,  remember he was the
only one with a missle left, which is why he was the only only one
who could pull it off. Plus the missle was armed already, but was
malfunctioned in its holder, so he became the missle.
As forhim going in the lazer and not getting messed up, the first
beam that comes out is only the targeting beam before they turn
on the main weapon, you can tell because it also never hurts the
groung or building in the first second or so.

Happy 4th, ya'll.

Here's the setups and payoffs of ID4.

Re: Independence Day

Just rewatched it again Start to Finish, which I haven't done in years. It's remarkable how well thought-out, plotted, and character-driven it feels. Part of it is how awful the summer blockbuster has gotten that this seems like high art by comparison, but I would also say that I genuinely think the movie nails completely the right earnest, cornball tone and rides it perfectly the whole way through. The characters are likable, there's just enough science sprinkled in there to feel semi-grounded (I actually have zero problems with the computer stuff),  it doesn't take itself too seriously, but it still commits to the story it's telling and has a good story structure and pacing.
