Brief Synopsis:
This is a re-edit of Independence Day with War of the Worlds footage mixed into it.
Intention:
This is a re-edit of Independence Day with War of the Worlds footage mixed into it (similar to my Armageddon/Deep Impact hybrid). Also used some footage from Contact and Cloverfield. The first cut of this edit was 3 hours long due to a lot of scenes from Cloverfield. Upon watching it, I realized that the Cloverfield characters weren’t that interesting and their scenes dragged the pacing down. So in order to make it more fun, action-oriented summer popcorn movie, I purposely cut it down to a more manageable 2 hours.

Very interesting concept. At times the narrative felt sloppy but overall this edit feels like a sprawling summer anti-blockbuster kettle corn flick. It didn’t hit the mark 100% but it was an entertaining watch.

Editing was fairly good but the audio levels were all over the place. No normalization = finger on the volume button. Integrating the different flicks worked well most of the time. Cloverfield felt most out of place but didn’t kill it.

This is recommended if you’re tired of rewatching your favorite summer alien attack blockbusters and want to mix it up.

A/V quality – 8
Editing – 8 visual, 5 audio
Narrative – 7
Enjoyment – 7
