I enjoyed the first one.

I'll see this one too.

I wish Will Smith was still in it and not the scientist guy.

Actually looked really good. Will watch.

It looks like it may be better than the first one. We'll see.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 4:37:17 PM EST
Will go see it. Too bad Will Smith isn't in it though.

The first ID reminded me of the girl I used to date. We had spent the day at the beach, went to see the movie afterwards, and then went home to screw like rabbits. Ahhh the summer of 97

First one had lots of comic relief.

This one seems to take itself pretty seriously...

I hope Goldblum wins a Oscar and Wil Smith hangs himself and his obnoxious kids never act or sing again

Love the human tech. We would have had a hell of a good time stripping the 1996 alien wreckage for cool shit.

I want to see more alien war movies set in the future, there's a bunch of naval space opera novel series that would rock hard in theaters.

Maybe Honor Harrington minus 60% of the politics with the fleet tactics rewritten by Jack Campbell (pen name of John G Hemry, writer of The Lost Fleet series)

There's no way Hillary or Bernie would fund new weaponry like that, even if we got great technology from aliens. It would all go to huge social programs and we would be incinerated waiting in line for our deserved share of potatoes.

Well..

We should.

Has potential. May watch depending on the reviews.
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 4:55:37 PM EST
OK, I understand the concept of a sequel. It rehashes the first movie.

But I think there is a flaw in the concept. If humans had been attacked as in the first movie and managed to survive, and in the bargain got space travel tech, then the next time we fought them it ought to be on their turf. It would be stupid to just build bigger/better weapons and defenses. The best defense is a good offense.

Also I think it is human nature to hunt down and eliminate the threat at the source.

Embed made into link for those of us who for some reason can't see any videos or photos posted using the Arfcom skins. I thought that shit was fixed a couple of months ago.

The alien was using him to talk. Then moved on to President Whitmore. We see him on the floor but never confirmed death, and in sci-fi, that's as good as alive.

too bad will smith wasn't in it.

so how the hell did they advance an 100 years in tech in only 20 years, alien tech?
Link Posted: 4/22/2016 7:27:57 PM EST
Never thought I'd see a thread where Arfcom was bitching that Will Smith wasn't in a movie.

Yeah, I think it's safe to assume they reverse engineered alien tech.

Was stationed in Ft Huachuca when it came out. Went to the theater out in town, they let it open on July 3rd when it was supposed to open on July 4th.
Got to the first showing 45 min early and got in line near the front. By the time the doors opened it was past the building and running out
almost to the road.
Enjoyed the flick.

You are going in the first wave. That means more bugs for us to kill.

Still think powered exo-suits would make for a bitchin movie.

It looks like garbage with none of the appeal of original.

This.

It was years ago when I read a really apt short scifi story about something like that. To boil it down, aliens watched earth as humans conquered, how fast we developed, and they were afraid of us getting into space. So their society ended up hurling an asteroid at faster than the speed of light at Earth. No way to stop it.

They kept watching and to their horror, humans became civilized, worked out their issues, and went to the stars never knowing what was coming. One day out of the blue, Earth just ceased to be when the asteroid hit. A short time later, every radio frequency was lit up in every human language saying, "we know where you are, and we are coming."

We'd take apart the alien tech, improve it, make it ours, then go stomp a mudhole into them.
