EP. 327 — Independence Day

This week, Paul & Amy are breaking down the 1996 Will Smith disaster vehicle Independence Day. The two dig into what makes a great “popcorn movie,” why this movie still works, and this particular era of Jeff Goldblum box office “gold.” Plus, Paul gives us a bonus breakdown of the 2016 sequel Independence Day: Resurgence.
