    "Today we celebrate - our Independence Day!!!!! That speech by President Whitmore has been carved into my mind since the first time I saw the movie, its so powerful and inspiring that I just want to go out and beat alien ass every time I hear it :) The whole movie is great, amazing special effects that have aged well, charismatic characters (especially Will Smith's and Jeff Goldblum's, they have amazing chemistry together), and a good story line. Its a shame the sequel was so mind numbingly bad!"

    "A really perfect movie that shows just how powerful the American military, especially the people, are. Dazzling displays of explosions, brilliant special effects, and the different points-of-view from different American personnel amidst an alien invasion. Not to mention the name of the movie itself, it all really brings out the patriot in everyone. It really can't get any better than this."

    "This is the biggest blockbuster hit of its time. The plot of the movie was excellent that fans clamored for a sequel. Sadly, the sequel failed to live up to expectations so don't base what you know about that sequel. This is the movie that really catapulted Will Smith to superstardom and cemented Jeff Goldblum's status as one of the most versatile actors of his generation."

    "There are times I go to the movie to be uplifted and inspired...and times I go to the movies just to see stuff get blown up. For the latter times, I'd recommend Independence Day. I don't remember much about the storyline of this movie, really -- but I remember as plain as day the scenes of the White House, Golden Gate Bridge, and other landmarks being blown up by aliens!"

    "In my opinion, Independence Day is one of the greatest science-fiction films of all time. The CGI alone would have done the trick but then again, if you add on the storyline and the actors who made the script spring to life, then you have an enjoyable and witty story that is worth millions of dollars in theater returns alone."

    "If every person who ran for the US presidency has this president's speech, I'm pretty sure 90 percent of them would have won the election. It was such a powerful speech and yes, today, we celebrate our independence day. Fireworks!!!"
