Independence Day 1983 – The Cinema Snob

The Cinema Snob sits through an early 80s melodrama that happens to also be called Independence Day, for some reason.

About thecinemasnob

Brad Jones portrays The Cinema Snob, a pretentious film snob who is stuck with reviewing Z-Grade exploitation flicks of the past. I'm a big guy. For you.


  1. an 80’s melodrama won over the other 2 titles? well, careful what you wish for folks.

  2. And I was hopping the winner would be Independence Day-Saster, because just from the title, it deserves to be bashed in the head more than Independence Day: Resurgence, and I really enjoyed Resurgence, as did the rest of the audience at the advance screening in my home town.

    1:57- And this is already more boring than the opening overture to Star Trek: The Motion Picture.

    3:09- Pff, I wish this movie WAS Death Proof.

    I was also comparing Jack to Clay Walsh from Old Fashioned since the drag race scene.

    8:51- Holy shit, I was also thinking about that scene from Batman! …We have seen too many fuckin’ movies.

    Disney’s The Aristicats is a racist movie? Suddenly, my life has changed forever.

    13:58- Yeah, I agree. This is nothing like “the largest aerial battle in the history of man kind”, or the world declaring in one voice “We will not go quietly into the night!”

    16:32- Thank God my mom wasn’t like this when she was pregnant with me, and I was born in ’86.

    18:20- Holy crap, she went all “In the words of my generation, UP YOURS!” on her abusive husband. …Yeah, I’m still quoting ID4. So what?

    This movie isn’t as depressing as Endless Love, but it’s up there.

  3. ALICE HOFFMAN? That’s incredibly depressing.

  4. Love that ending.

    Great review, Snob.
