Independence Day: Resurgence feels less like the action blockbuster that spawned this lackluster sequel and more like a CG-filled nostalgia cash grab. With the absence of Will Smith, the movie is left trying to scrape together a story from what was left in the bottom of the ID4 jar.
The first CD I ever bought was Snoop Dogg’s “Doggystyle”, which was quickly followed by Dr. Dre’s “The Chronic”, and thus began my love of 1990s gangsta rap. I was a little too young to know the story of N.W.A., so naturally, I was beyond excited for Straight Outta Compton. Thankfully, the movie more than exceeds all my astronomical expectations.
