Radiohead at their best are truly brilliant and ahead of the pack. I tend to think they're a tad overrated simply because they're not consistent. OK Computer is one of those rare albums that's just so perfect, so utterly genius that I don't think they could ever hope to top it. But it's so untraditional that you either get it or you don't.

All the remake movies starting from like, the beginning of time to now are just absolute crap, they never end up good, they always butcher the story, and they never refund my money when i get out of the theater.

How about "The Maltese Falcon?" The Bogart version we all know and love was the second time it was remade. And I would say it was far from absolute crap, and actually quite an excellent film.

When I said remakes, I exclude zombie films, and generally mean horror/suspense films.

I know I should hate Independence Day. Everything in me screams at me to hate it. Every fiber of my being that appreciates good writing, story telling, and dialog begs me to see the light and hate this terrible, lowest common denominator creation. And yet, I just can't, at least not completely. And it pains me to no end to admit it. Dated special effects or no, when the part comes when hundreds of USAF fighters begin the attack on the alien ship, I smile, and all I can say is thats it's damn cool. Because it is. It was also directed by the Stargate guy, so I can never totally hate it anyway.

Independence Day is one of those great "junk food" films. No nutritional value, does nothing good for your heart or mind, leaves you wanting more (or something to wash it down with), but.... Damn, if it isn't fun while you're eating it!

Every genre has its equivalent.

I kinda agree. Oz is great if your talking about its cultural significance, or Pink Floyd or maybe one of its many parodies. But when was the last time you actually sat down and watched it? It's not very good...

I disagree that its a good story. I find myself siding with the "wicked" witch. Your not suppose to side with the villain!

Independence day is the ultimate background movie. I`ve had it on like 15 times, but cannot remember the last time i actually sat down and watched it through.

The new (and old, for that matter) war of the worlds is pretty bad.

I think the floating ships were more doable given the technology limitations of the time.
