Ok, I’m just gunna come right out and say it: I am a sucker for Roland Emmerich movies. I will now provide the film students reading this a moment or two to make fun of me and shred Mr. Emmerich to pieces…….
Alright, as I was saying, I am a sucker for Roland Emmerich. I possess a rare gift to be able to effortlessly look beyond any filmmaking errors and just see pure entertainment in his films (edit: in other words, the mike is able to pass the cactus when it comes to Roland Emmerich – Gill). I love his visions of disaster on a large scale (see Independence Day, Godzilla, The Day After Tomorrow, and 2012), I love his visions of history (see 10,000 BC and The Patriot), and I love his visions of science fiction (see Stargate and Universal Soldier). As long as Roland Emmerich has things to destroy, I will have entertaining movies to waste time with.
