Paul here and I wanted to thank all of the loyal listeners of The World’s Best Podcast for so being patient with me. As you may know, I like to get a new podcast episode every Monday (sometimes Tuesday), but my Summer Movie Season film reviews have thrown off my episode release schedule a little. However, we’re back on track now with, not one, not two, but THREE podcasts dropping this week. Beginning with this episode here, in honor of the 4th of JULY…

Roland Emmerich’s INDEPENDENCE DAY is a classic of the 90’s sci-fi/action films. The trailers were fantastic. The cast was great. I was still a kid when the movie premiered in 1996 and I could not wait for the movie to come out. When I finally saw the film, I loved it and through the years it’s become one of those movies that I revisit every summer around July.

In my opinion the film holds up well. In fact, I recently made a list of my top 100 favorite movies of all time and Independence Day easily made the list. To clarify this wasn’t a list of the 100 BEST movies of all time, but my personal FAVORITES.

It’s basically an unofficial modern day retelling of H.G. Wells’ War of the Worlds and it’s so much better than Spielberg’s abysmal crack at adapting that story. Anyway, you can listen here or subscribe on Stitcher and iTunes:
