Decades-later sci-fi sequel lacks original's spark, spirit

'Independence Day' was one of the first summer blockbusters that really captured my imagination while it was in the theaters. I saw the film a handful of times on the big screen in 1996 and was thrilled by every screening. In subsequent years, I grew more and more aware of just how big and dumb a movie it was, but I never stopped loving it.

The summer of 2016 has already seen a number of unnecessary sequels. Due to unanticipated degrees of box office success, certain movies have been tapped to receive sequels despite having already told their story to a more or less satisfactory conclusion. These non-franchise sequels almost always turn out to be disappointments.
