    Classic Summer Blockbuster

    |
    Posted .

    In 1996, this film made over $817 million to become the 2nd highest grossing film of all-time at the time. It made Will Smith a A-lister and a bankable summer blockbuster star. The premise is pretty simple, aliens attack earth and earthlings fight back with all their might to survive. It is not a deep, thought-provoking film; but a fun blockbuster that a whole family or varied group can watch and enjoy without thinking to hard. It is not overly violent either. It had great visual effects, which helped the film earn an Academy Award for best visual effects. Even in 2015, the visual effects stand the test of time, like the Jurassic Park visual effects have stood the test of time. Price: I paid $4.99, but in 2015 I think the most I would spend on this film is $7.99-$9.99. I got it for a great price point and it is worth it to by this if you see it on sale for cheap. If this set came loaded with special features or in a limited packaging I could justify paying more. Packaging: The version I bought is just the standard blu-ray version. There are not a ton of special features, but there is more than just a trailer. The cool thing was the version I bought came with a special edition slipcover (cardboard cover) that is part of the Fox Icon slipcover wave. Overall, happy with the purchase and happy with my experience buying from Best Buy. Note: I would really give this film and packaging a 4.5 if possible. I reserve 5s for absolute masterpieces with great packaging that have an abundance of special features, like the Lord of the Rings extended edition set.

    Classic flick, but once again BB stickers strike!

    |
    Posted .

    Not so much a review on the movie, but the packaging. Best Buy has a horrible habit of putting a stupid 'Best Buy' sticker on the cardboard slip on their BluRay movies. Whatever sticker type they use is horrible as I can never get it off the case and am stuck looking at this nonsense. Overall I'm happy with the $5 BR movie, but had I known Amazon was selling the exact same thing for the same price, and without the sticker, I would have used them.

    Terrific Sci Fi Action Flick

    Posted .

    One of my all time favorites. ID4 is fun Sci Fi story telling with alien butt - kicking action. Awesome special effects still blow me away. Must own!

    Sharp Looking Steelbook

    Owned for 1 month when reviewed.

    Was originally going to get Independence Day on 4k as the transfer is supposed to be quite good, but this steelbook just looks so sharp and the price was right. Haven’t watched the disc yet, but the regular blu-ray also received high marks for its transfer. So if it is available at a good price, and you don’t need it on 4k, I’d recommend this steelbook.

    ID4 in 4K

    Owned for 4 months when reviewed.

    This is one of the best movies that helped Will Smith become the movie star people like in movies. The rest of the cast helped make this movie good. Although the creators also made Stargate, which I also like, unfortunately they have made movies as memorable as ID4 in years, this was one of their best. Buy it for the fun it is to watch.

    Better than the sequel. Will smith is a great actor. The movie special effect is pretty good considering how old this movies is. It holds up pretty well. A lot of action and story is very enjoyable and acting is on point. Now that is in 4K you can even see more detail then before. Would recommend if you like a good classic to watch.

    Fresh clean look for a classic - must do 4K Disc

    Owned for 8 months when reviewed.

    I've been a big fan of this movie and originally bought this many years ago on Laser Disc. I haven't watched this movie in forever and got a great deal on 4K. I watched this and quality for a 20 yr old is great. The 4K is definitely worth it if you are a fan of this movie. I also compared the quality of the 4K disc with the 4K digital copy - the disc is better! I'm glad to have the digital but will always watch on the physical disc.

    The film is a bit dated - the presentation is not.

    |
    Posted .

    If you were around in summer 1996, you know what a big deal ID4 was when it came out - a pop culture phenomenon if there ever was one during the summer's of the 1990's. However, the film IS admittedly a bit dated now, particularly in the humor department, but it's still a fun ride. Anyone with an older release wondering if it's worth it, well YES it is. The 4K remaster looks miles above the old in both regular blu and UHD. Of Note: I've hear some people complain about the compression artifacts on the UHD disc, but your mileage may vary dependent on your system. That audio on the regular blu sounds as good as ever, but the UHD wins this round BIG TIME with a DTS X multidimensional remix. If you're a home theater buff, like me, already equipped for this, you're in for a treat. Truly immersive and absolutely destroys what was already a great 5.1 mix on the older releases. The attacks, explosions, and general ambience of sets and interiors come to life in a whole new way. Worth it for the upgrade on that alone!
