Independence Day (1996)

Directed by Roland Emmerich. With Will Smith, Bill Pullman, Jeff Goldblum, Mary McDonnell.

Okay, it’s campy, scientifically ridiculous, predictable, and somewhat poorly acted. But it’s a hell of a lot of fun. The special effects are great and Goldblum and Smith carry the cast with their over-the-top engagement in this humans vs. aliens standoff. Me, my daughter, and the cat loved it.

Spoiler: the humans win.
