Come on. You have to love the name. It sounds like someone with a Black Country accent.
Lots of flags here. England’s celebration of when we all packed up and came home. I’d have thought SETI would be a bit more impressive. Wait. That’s the host from Jurassic Games. His name is Chuck Mannington in this and his friend is Beef Rockfist (or at least I’ve decided they are).
I’m sure I’ve seen that president, but with a beard.
ALIUMS! FROM THE SKY AND UNDERGROUND!
I hope it’s the camera shaking. I’ve hardly touched this wine.
Oh. Oh. This is a nice red.
The president has obviously seen the beginning of Earth vs the Flying Saucers and is being cautious.
Wait. Did Beef Rockfist just get blatted while I was writing? Never got to find out his real name.
I thought the Secret Services guy was going to reel off cities from the song Pop Music then.
“New York, London, Paris, Munich”
If the Hollow Earthers’ were to drill down to try and prove their theories right, it’d be terrible if the Flat Earthers’ ones were.
Did you know the Secret Service was originally set up as an anti-counterfeiting agency? Corking Movies is ED-U-CATIONAL, Yo!
These low budget movies always have a very similar family thing going on. I’d like to see a big budget sci-fi do something similar. Signs almost did it – the whole idea of ordinary people who aren’t directly involved in, but are victims of, extraordinary events.
The British PM is missing? She’s just a placeholder until the clouds from Brexit settle. The next PM will either ride in and take credit for the success, or come in and blame her if it’s all gone wrong. Win-win.
I don’t believe there’s not a way for the President to contact the military. Doesn’t he have GoToMyPC set up or anything?
Apparently the ALIUMS are here because they left their phone on or something.
“We have visual.” You saw them about 5 minutes ago.
The President would not give tactical decisions like that. It would not be down to him to tell withdraw.
Gotta love hacking in films. Lots of text scrolling, keys being mashed, but no actual interaction. (I think this may have been what they used).
I hope there’s a BIG SPEECH(tm) in this. Does anyone else think the one in Independence Day isn’t actually very good? A big deal is made of it, but it’s not all that. Charlie Chaplin in the Great Dictator, however…
This is a bit like when they used Slim Whitman (I initially wrote Walt Whitman, which would have been awesome – using poetry to kill aliums would totally be my thing) in Mars Attacks.
The hamsters are restless again.
Woah. That was a sudden meltdown. Girls are so prone to hysteria. Good job there was a man on hand then. God. Just realised. Everyone in this film is white. I was thinking about how it was being a bit chauvinistic there, then it hit me. I suppose only white people could save America on the 4th of July.
Is there a name for the alium tech/earth tech compatibility trope? (Sober edit – there is. http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/PlugNPlayTechnology).
We’re being terraformed!
Wait. Is that what the right are doing? Rising temperatures, increasing carbon monoxide levels?
There don’t seem to be enough people around to make a decision of this magnitude.
That progress bar was just called “Progress Bar”
In all these things where the President is some sort of action hero. I can only remember one actual president with the physique, and, going by my earlier observations, he wouldn’t be in this (and I think, in my lifetime, it’s been Reagan, Bush, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Disaster).
Could they really launch an ICBM into space? Didn’t they try it in Independence Day?
I hope the pure white cast is accidental rather than intentional.
Yeah, dude, you just met her. That was a “love of my life” slow mo.
Ooh. BIG SPEECH(tm). And it’s bollocks.
It’s a shame that kid died and nobody cared.
Oh. A Presidential BIG SPEECH(tm). Seriously, if you make films, you’ll know someone who can write a bit, or at least look at what’s been done and make suggestions.
The alium spaceships. They’re Viennese Whirls. Always seem like the blandest biscuit with a lovely filling.
Wow. Someone just used the magic selection tool there.
Catering was by Rolling Chef.
