I just want to see Bill Pullman and Will Smith save the world from hostile alien takeover, is that too much to ask?

"I know everything about film. I've seen over 240 of them." -Dwight Shrute of The Office

I'm not a huge movie person. I haven't seen many. I very rarely watch movies on purpose, only when it's the activity planned by the people I'm with. And in general my family and friends aren't tremendous movie people, so I don't get much. Or maybe it's just that the movies I see tend to be the family or old classics variety and I've watched plenty and just missed out on many of the popular movies of my time just because I didn't really grow up in that sort of environment. I'm not sure. I wish I'd thought to keep count.

The Scene: class party in Mr Ganner's science class, 7th grade, Murray Middle School
What Happenned: I watch Independence Day up until the point where Will Smith's plane crashes in the middle of the desert.

The Scene: party for the apartments that won the dress up contest at the disco skating activity, last weekend, Bro. and Sis. Boyce's house
What Happenned: I watch Independence Day up until the point where Will Smith's plane crashes in the middle of the desert.

One of these days I'll see the end.

You really should see the end. It's quite classic with (naturally) a lot of things exploding, some exceedingly unrealistic scenarios (even considering the premise of the movie), romace, suspense, adventure, and at least one Elvis reference. A classic of our generation. -Laura

*romance, not romace.

i've actually only seen the scene where Will Smith's plane crashes in the desert. When you get here, we'll have to have a movie night.
