Independence Day

On July 2, a giant alien mothership enters orbit around Earth and deploys several dozen saucer-shaped “destroyer” spacecraft, each 15 miles (24 km) in width. As the destroyers take positions over some of Earth’s major cities, David Levinson (Jeff Goldblum), an MIT-graduate working for a cable company in New York City, discovers hidden satellite transmissions which he believes is a timer counting down to a coordinated attack by the aliens.

Air Force One

Harrison Ford plays President James Marshall, who, after special forces capture and jail General Ivan Radek (played by Jurgen Prochnow), a radical Russian military dictator with nuclear weapons capabilities, announces on a trip to Russia that the U.S. will no longer negotiate with terrorist groups, nor will the nation be afraid to stand up to them. Little does he know that a small band of militants who sympathize with Radek have penetrated Air Force One’s security system. While on the plane ride home, they attempt to carry out their vendetta against President Marshall.

The American President

Michael Douglas is President Andrew Shepherd, a widower and father who begins to get uncomfortable with the perception surrounding his being a single father. He drops in on a meeting with environmental lobbyists and meets hard-charging Sydney Wade (Annette Bening). After Sydney escorts President Shepherd to a State dinner, the two strike up a relationship, much to the chagrin of Sydney’s boss, played by John Mahoney, and much to the delight of President Shepherd’s political rival, the scheming Senator Bob Rumson (Richard Dreyfuss).

We hope that you have found that special President’s Day mood and, well, enjoyed a movie too.
