Independence Day: Resurgence ★½

After a rather busy and frustrating week, I turned this on last night as a Friday Evening Alpha Wave Generator to help me unwind. Unfortunately, the only brain waves it produced were the kind that create feelings of frustration and agitation at Hollywood's formulaic sequel-generation algorithms.

This movie just boils down to taking everything that might have been mildly entertaining about the first film, turning it up to Eleventy, and setting the stage for the next sequel. Even Big Gay Brent Spiner in a hippie wig and white lab coat couldn't save this mess.
