    One of the best previews of all-time. A highly mediocre movie.


    Natually, they're making two of them.

    I came out of that movie thinking it was one of the worst I had ever seen, but through the years on cable it has kind of grown on me, so I agree with the upgrade to mediocre.

    No interest in seeing the sequel, though.

    So, does anybody have any new ideas?


    OK, let me see what we have that we can make a sequel for.

    The previews, that came out like 18 months before the film, were incredible.

    I saw the movie at midnight, in a packed theater, with a bunch of other people who had bought their tickets over a week in advance.

    I'd be surprised if a single person there left satisfied.

    Still my favorite popcorn, Saturday afternoon blockbuster.

    OK, what's the better movie Armageddon or Independence Day?

    Independence Day, but it's close. Both offer up mindless fun and a good bit of unintentional humor.

    I'll take Armageddon, but it's close.

    Independence Day has such a great buildup based on the unknown premise, kinda like the original Alien. Then after the halfway point, it fell into the ridiculous. Very disappointing for me.

    Independence Day. Michael Bay's directorial career peaked with Bad Boys.

    Enjoy 'ID' as a comforting cable stinker, much like 'Twister.'

    'Armageddon,' 'Deep Impact?' Eh.

    'District 9' by far the best of the genre.

    For the first half hour or so. I thought the second half or two-thirds was really pedestrian. Seems like a hazard of the genre. Once you actually have to start the action, everything falters.
