Skyline - the movie

I love me a good sci fi flick. What's the deal with this one? Is it based on a book, comic, etc?

"includes 10 used-car dealers or auto repair shops, 11 liquor stores and bars--two of which advertise lingerie fashion shows and a third billed as a "gentlemen's club"--three cut-rate motels and one trailer park. The squat, brick municipal building is next to a currency exchange and a few steps from an adult video store. The bars open at 10 a.m. and close at 6:30 a.m."

It's low-ish budget, it's derivative, and it looks awesome.

Haha, it made me think of the last movie we saw on Monday which was Megamind, and we went to the 5pm movie where there is always hardly anyone in there. We were the first ones in there, and the next and only other people looked around for a bit, then this stupid moron sits DIRECTLY in front of us with her kids. Out of the WHOLE fuggin' theater, they sit right in front of us. We hopped a row up, but only after a few kicks to the back of their seats.

I liked it better when it was called Independence Day.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

How am I supposed to pick up random tail with the wife? And no, she's not into that, I already asked.

Doesn't get much better than that.


BTW, Arch I spotted you and little Arch in your VR4 yesterday. I was pulling out of the PO and followed you until you turned into the Dominick's lots just north of North Aurora and Odgen. I tried waiving but you were pretty focused on the road.
