This shouldn't be this good. It shouldn't at all be this good. It's a big dumb movie about big dumb people shooting big dumb aliens, SO WHY IS IT SO CLEVER?!
I don't know. But it is. And you should watch it.
I didn't 5 star enjoy this film, but I enjoyed it and it definitely shouldn't have been as good as it is.
It surprised me by how likable the characters were, how good the romance plot was (those are normally just so abysmal) and how it didn't throw a message down our throat - had a far smarter script than it had any right having.
I agree before I saw this film I thought it would be shit. Somehow it wasn't. It's a shame they've made several awful sequels to it.
There's nothing more tragic than a great joke told again, by someone who doesn't get that it's funny. ~Me, on the sequels.
Hell yeah! This is undoubtedly one of my favourite films EVER! So glad you 5 starred it :D
