Independence Day 2?

What is it with people, dead horses and flogging?

I liked the first Independence Day as a kid. True, it was jingoistic and imperialistic, and portrayed humanity in much too much of a positive light . . . but it was good for what it was. A big budget, high energy action flick.

A sequel would just be pointless and tacky. What would happen in the sequel? Another bunch of aliens arrives to invade? Or maybe they come to seduce our women and create mixed-race . . . I mean, interspecies babies? Or does Will Smith invade their home, kill their people, destroy the native culture and set up a McDonald's and a Starbucks?

Pfft!
