    Meh, I'm okay with it. Independence Day was the only one of his films that I could watch. I always wanted to see more of the aliens, like ground based shocktrooper squads running through the ruined cities, hunting human survivors or fighting the military in frantic close-quarters urban combat.

    Part of me worries about it, and part of me is happy. I always thought we would of seen a sequel years ago. As long as he stays close to aspects of the first one. And keeps it realistic...than I'll accept it.

    I used to think that movie was so cool when it first came out. Now the corniness and Randy Quaid's caricature pretty much ruins it for me.

    Personally, for Randy Quaids character...I would of prefered the alternate ending version. If you ask me, it makes more sense. For those who don't know it... the scene where they are asking for pilots with experience, when Randy stands up and says "I fly, I'm pilot", pretty much they turn him down from flying the jet. Fast forward to the President "We aren't done yet! Doesn't anyone have any missiles?!" to "Sorry I'm late Mr. President." Instead of the f-18 flying through the clouds, it is Russell in his crop duster. "Who the hell is that guy?" Goes into a close up of Russell talking with a Missle strapped to his plane. "Tell my children I love them." He goes into the weapon, I believe he says something different from before and kaboom, same ending from there. They changed it over at the last minute before it hit theaters.

    I always thought ID4 was a good standalone movie -- for 1996 anyway.

    Can we please stop using the word "ever"?

    Two sequels to a movie that's 13 years old? Way to strike while the iron's hot, Emmerich.

    Yeah. I realize it's a play on words in the tentative title, but I thought I'd take the opportunity to express my distaste for the word in general.

    Good thing, because that would have made no sense and would have been an example of Michael Bay movie time (which thankfully Ronald doesn't use very often). Seriously, think of how long Quaid's character would have had to travel to get his crop duster, and then fly to the battle. The movie would have been over before he even got to the plane.

    And I'm slightly interested in sequels, but it entirely depends on what the story actually is.

    ID4 is the only film of him I actually like!! When my family & I saw it when it came to VHS, we applaud like idiots the destruction of the 1rst Alien City Destroyer lol

    Is a very cliche film, but is the only enjoyable one of his films:)

    Question is... Would Will Smith and Jeff Goldblum be willing to do it again?

    and for the Randy Quaid issue, If i remember right... the Crop Duster was attached to his trailer so he wouldnt have to go too far

    Actually, he was towing his cropduster on the back of the RV. You can see it in the scene where Will Smith sees the convoy of vehicles coming at them all the way to them driving into Area 51. So, it was there at the base the whole time. All he did was sneak off and grab a missile. Again, I think that one makes more sense than him in a F-18...

    Yeah, I can't imagine they'd have guards or security around their missile storage.
