Freeze Frame #31: Independence Day

Okay, I know this is essentially a B-movie with lots of things going bang. However, it was an immensely entertaining one, with every single member of the cast cheerfully throwing themselves into the absurd scenarios the movie offered. For Will Smith, this was a star-making role – it showcased every bit of his charm and screen presence.

My favourite moment in the movie is the rousing Bill Pullman speech at the end, when the Americans prepare for their last stand against the aliens. Especially the bit where the tone of his voice rises in defiance as he says “We will not go quietly into the night!” Corny as it sounds, that part gives me the goosebumps. So sue me.
