The President's pep talk speech is worth the price of admission alone... I just love though, how it shows just how inferior our weapons could be
against a foe that can travel the stars...
Luckily, I'd think that with the ability to travel the stars, resources would be nearly infinite, so they wouldn't have any MOTIVE for war. This is
why I believe any alien race who came here would be at worst, indifferent to us, vs. hostile.
Every time we watch it I'm subjected to the same comments from my other half ''oh for god's sake, it's just so ridiculous, there's no way he'd
do that now'' (referring to the cigar moment) and ''oh yeah, they really let the POTUS get in a fighter jet to go blast the aliens'' etc etc...
But, go on, ask me, do I care about the cheesiness - no I dont!!!
Ah the pep talk!!! Wow... Makes me tingle all over every time
In fact, because I know the speech so well, I used to use it as the content for
typing tests as a teenager
Again, I could not agree more.... I am inclined to believe that if extraterrestrial life is aware of planet Earth then we must surely be viewed upon
in the same manner us humans view ants... Hopefully we have nothing they want so there's no reason to crush us.
