I saw the Independence Day 2 trailer and thought WTF. And do they have some other actor taking over Will Smith's role?

Did battling extraterrestrial super beings in the new Independence Day conflict with Will Smith's kooky religion?

I knew Will wasn't in it, but I thought no one was coming back. Was nice seeing familiar faces in the trailer.

All that Star Trek trailer needed was a BOING sound effect or a slide whistle. Maybe someone running into a wall. Fucking embarrassing.

Imagine the Guardians trailer but without any humor, just an overall lighthearted tone. And Sabotage.

Is the Life Aquatic one of the less popular Wes Anderson movies? I watched it today, again, for the millionth time and I always like it. Not sure why, but it's oddly comforting. But I was reading a list put together by a cinema website (I know lists are objective) and was surprised they ranked it so low while ranking Rushmore very high. I "like" Rushmore, but I felt his later works expanded and built upon all his qualities as a filmmaker.

I feel like it's less popular overall, but is more popular in film circles?

Without looking I think Rushmore is one of my least favorites, can't think of any I like less than that one.

Rushmore is a hundred times more enjoyable for me than Life Aquatic.

Life Aquatic is a bit more quirkier than Rushmore. There's parallels as well, such as both movies do feature Murray feuding with someone (Ned in Life Aquatic and Max In Rushmore) over a girl. The thing about Rushmore, at least with my viewings, is how I can't get past how creepy the Max Fischer character is.

I need to watch Bottle Rocket.

This. I think it's among his funniest, and the use of the widescreen is so good. One of the most amazing sophomore efforts I've ever seen, up there with Days of Heaven and The Magnificent Ambersons.

The Life Aquatic is very creative and funny, but lacks any emotional resonance. When the big tragedy happens, there's just no feeling whatsoever (similar to my complaints with the climax of The Grand Budapest Hotel). By comparison, in Rushmore one can sympathize with Max's feelings as well as the teacher's.

My ranking would be:

1. Rushmore
2. Tenenbaums
3. Moonrise Kingdom
4. Darjeeling Limited
5. Fantastic Mr. Fox
6. The Grand Budapest Hotel
7. The Life Aquatic
8. Bottle Rocket

The debut is very funny, but lacks the visual sophistication of everything that came after.

Royal Tenenbaums is probably his most talked about, in my experience. I think it's pretty widely regarded as his best, no? Maybe I'm wrong.

The death in Life Aquatic doesn't register with me at first, but when you have the scene later with Sigur Ros playing and Steve kinda breaks down, that's where the emotion hits you, and I don't think that's an accident. More realistic in a sense, that way.

I agree with ELFA, I feel like it got completely overlooked for some reason. And I think it's his best, most days.

The Royal Tenembaums was my introduction to Wes Anderson. My only prior exposure to him was years prior MTV News did a small piece on an up and coming film maker from Texas on his indie movie called Bottle Rocket. But I had no clue then and still have not watched Bottle Rocket.
