The movie won one award, so I’m counting it here. If you haven’t seen Independence Day, then stop reading this article, do yourself a favor, and go watch it. It set the stage for every alien invasion movie to come after it. Featuring Will Smith in the starring role (before he got wrapped up in crappy movies), there is a lot of snark and male power to go around. Jeff Goldblum also does a phenomenal job in this movie. To top it all off, Independence Day features the greatest motivational speech in cinematic history that just makes you say, “America!” We can only hope the long-awaited sequel will be half as good.
