Default Independence Day Sequels

I know if you're an Independence Day fan, you'll have heard of the news already, probably, like I have. However, for those who haven't heard:

http://sciencefictionworld.com/films...on-board.html#

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1628841/

http://www.worstpreviews.com/headline.php?id=17217

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1628842/

The last site says it's coming out this year, which I highly doubt, as 2013 is the expected release for Independence Day 2, and 2014 is the expected release for Independence Day 3.

Man, I personally can't wait for this.

Discuss.

LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

Yes, that's my contribution. As far as alien invasion movies go, I liked it, but it does NOT need a sequel.

ID4 was great the first time watched and maybe a 2nd time. But really there is no need to continue the story all has been told that needed to be told. MIB 3 well thats cool may not be the best stuff ive ever seen but was entertaining none the less.

I have doubts about ID4 sequals simply beacuse i just see it falling short esspecially since there wasnt even a lead in for the next film

OK, ID4 was a total crapfest. Randy Quad single handedly made that suck. Bill Pullman's character (The President of the US) made me shake my head in disgust as he hacked almost all his lines too. That and the fact he jumped into a F/A-18 and went a flyin' in the end just made me throw up in my mouth. I hate it when a movie puts a totally unbelievable action into a movie, it's just retarded.

I'm not really a fan of those large scale invasion movies. The story almost always follows the same script. Aliens attack when a black guy is president, the Statue of Liberty gets blown up, everything goes to shit and, at the last minute, that random fucktard who somehow ended up the main character of the film does something unreasonably heroic to save the day.

The human appendix. Proof of a higher power. A divine kill switch so to speak.

No one really likes a smartass, but people tend to like a dumbass even less.

I love Independence day. Sure it's cheesy at times, massively pro-american and just full of corny lines. But i love it, it's just a very fun film, if not just for Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum. It's from another era of films in which that was pretty much the norm. If you watched it now having not seen it when it came out, you would probably think its shit, but at the time it was just a brilliantly fun film imo.

That being said, im dreading a sequel, pretty much for the reasons above. Back then a film could afford to be like that, cheesy, corny etc and get away with it. Can't see them pulling off a sequel really, not without changing it entirely.
