Blockbuster Rewind – Independence Day Series (#14)

On the fourteenth episode of Blockbuster Rewind, co-hosts Scott Shifflett, Eric Eells & Andy Atherton discuss Independence Day and it’s sequel Independence Day: Resurgence. And as a bonus they also cover Tim Burton’s Mars Attacks. They go through each of the films and talk about the greatness of the 1996’s ID4 and its great ensemble cast; the outstanding visuals in the films; the incredible one-liners in the first movie; Jeff Goldblum being so Jeff Goldblum; the goose bump-inducing speech by Bill Pullman’s President Whitmore; the good and bad decisions made by world leaders in the films; how Dr. Okun served the first movie and gained such a major role in the sequel; the all-star cast of Mars Attacks having a great time amongst the campiness of the film & whether or not the ID4 franchise should continue.
