There's never a bad time to watch Independence Day, if only for that epic Bill Pullman speech, and with the sequel just around the corner (after two decades, no less), you may as well remind yourself of what went down the first time round. In case you haven't seen it somehow, it's basically about aliens invading and Will Smith kickin' ass with some sweet one-liners. This one pretty much set the bar for all alien movies of the nineties really, it certainly beats Mars Attack... we'll never get those two hours back.
