The aliens are back! And so are Fox’s hopes to get a franchise out of Roland Emmerich’s ID4, only 20 years later. This time around the world feels more prepared, as they’ve adapted much of the alien tech and advanced significantly, preparing themselves for interstellar defense in the future, only they hadn’t met the worst that their antagonists had to offer. Nor have we met the worst this franchise has to offer. Listen to Chris, Herman, Elliott and Hai hem and haw about the relative merits of this sequel in this SPOILER-LADEN review.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.

    Is there a chance of Hai being on more reviews going forward? I thought he was great on this one (also, am I the only one who thinks he sounds a lot like Johnny Neill?).

    • Chris Cox

      We’d love to have Hai back on too. I don’t hear the Johnny Neill similarity, but maybe I’ve just known both of them for too long to tell.

    Don’t worry about objectivism Elliot.”Objectionist Reviews” is an oxymoron because people at the end of the day want opinion…but somehow want to avoid bias which is pretty much impossible as everyone subconsciously has bias. Having opinions isn’t the problem, but to me, I think the key is learning how to explain and deduce those opinions without throwing bricks at others. See this video for proof.


    It was a fun review. Don’t think I’ll be seeing this until rental status.
