There aren’t many movie clips that make you want to jump out of your seat, grab a fighter jet, and go fight fake aliens on the 4th of July. But this clip from Independence Day in 1996 gets me every time. Always a great way to start the morning on the 4th of July.
Should the aliens ever really come I hope Bill Pullman is ready and willing to lead us. He should instantly be put in charge based on this speech alone. Sure, you might say it’s “acting” but I say he transformed into a real life alien fighting presidential machine during these two minutes.
Happy 4th! Celebrate like crazy Randy Quiad at the end of this clip (sneaky least realistic part of the movie btw. Who would EVER let him fly one of these planes?!)
