Earth uniting together against a common enemy sounds like a dream doesn't it? I remember getting all psyched and pumped up when I saw the other countries taking action.

I could see North Korea saying, "See??? We told you that you should have let us test our missiles!!!"

 U know... North Korea will probably used the footage in Independence Day to show the people, "see those giant spaceships is us! And Look how we destroy the United States! Victory!!"

I'd see some sequels even though I'm not the biggest fan of the franchise....I don't think I've yet to see the entire original or maybe I've just forgotten most of it outside the tunnel scene and a couple of the big "blowing shit up" scenes

@therockdltj,

Yeah, I saw Die Hard With A Vengeance. That one and Die Hard 2 were the only ones that ever mentioned anything that happened in the other movies-and only briefly.

My problem is that anyone who did the things John McClane did would be rich & famous with book deals and movies made about him and doing speeches. Capt. Sully was a hero by landing his plane safely in the river near Manhattan and he is set for life. The same thing should have happened to McClane. But in each movie virtually nobody recognizes him, not even the master villain. The bad guy in Live Free Or Die Hard looks him up on the web while he is escorting the computer geek and all he fnds is that he's got a small 401K. It should have been, "What! That's John McClane!?!? The guy who beat the robbers of Nakatomi Plaza singlehanded!?!? The guy who stopped the Special Forces units at the airport!?! The same guy who stopped the bombers who blew up Manhattan and saved the Federal Reserve gold !?!? Get everybody we've got on this guy!!! We're up against our worst nightmare!!!"

I love the Die Hard movies but it just seemd such an obvious and slightly more realistic thing to have everybody realize the things he's done, and they just keep happening to him.

Capt. Sully is a fraud who should learn how to avoid geese like MOST pilots :)

As much as I enjoyed ID4, I just don't think a sequel is either necessary or plauible. We had to suspend disbelief rather drastically with the original, and I can only imagine the sequels. I mean, the aliens are WAY smarter than us to be able to travel the stars, and I think they would be hard pressed to make the same mistakes again. This time, they'd just wipe us out completely with their own Biological (instead of technological) Virus, and then just have their way with the planet. Besides, how many major cities are even left to "fire bomb" with their heat lasers?

 I'd rather see a couple of sequels for "Mars Attacks."  Curious to see the effects martian technology has had on humans in the years following the initial conflict.

I've been waiting for these sequels forever. And no Will "Mr Nepotism" Smith or his ego? That's a good thing.

 Most of Emerich's work to date has been crap. When ID4 was released I loved it in the theater. Then I watched it at home and had to actually pay attention to the story and the characters. Thats when i realized how utterly awful it was. So I can't help but believe that the sequels will be so stupid they will make my brain hurt. Not excited at all.

I actually think the alternate timeline was the most interesting aspect of the movie but I have a question. If the alien ship in area 51 with Data had no power, then how in the F^#* can they put an antigravity machine in ??? I smell plot holes just like the first one, they better pump up the action and hand out the popcorn because if they try to take the movie too seriously they will fail.

Last opinion, no need for Smith.
