Independence Day Sequel Shot Down By Roland Emmerich?

Has "the fat lady" finally sung for the Independence Day sequel? In an interview with Empire, director of the original film, Roland Emmerich may have effectively peed in the Cheerios of fans who have been anxiously awaiting the follow-up to the 1996 big-budget explosion-laden summer crowd-pleaser. The director sat down to discuss his plans for his upcoming Elizabethan-set film, Anonymous, which focuses on the age-old controversy of exactly who really wrote Shakespeare's great works? (My guess: It was either Christopher Marlowe or Wesley Willis.) However, when Emmerich was asked about the rumor-filled return to the Independence Day (or ID4) franchise, the director was oddly unambiguous with his answer. And that answer, unfortunately for fans, did not yield good news.

If Gamers Gave The Oscars

As he has since ancient days, this morning, Tsulvoth, The Mighty God of Hollywood, opened his gargantuan throat and vomited the list of nominees for the 2011 Academy Awards. (All hail Tsulvoth!) As usual, this year’s nominees are mostly flicks that are pretty good and made money, spiced up with a few movies that are very good and didn’t.

Other than the surprisingly solid Toy Story 3 tie-in game, none of the movies nominated this year have accompanying video games, but it’s still possible to “play” them, with a little imagination. We got together with our sister blog, Attack of the Blog, and compiled the following list of games that are equivalent to this year’s academy award nominees.

Wii Punch Out!!

The Fighter: This film tells the story of "Irish" Micky Ward, an amateur boxer from Boston who eventually went pro. Though no game exactly captures Ward's difficult struggle with repeated disappointment and the turmoil caused by his brother's tragic drug addiction, in Punch-Out!! for the Wii, you do get to play as a white guy (Little Mac) who beats up cartoonish characters based on harmful, racist stereotypes. No game is truer to both the spirit of Boston and professional boxing.
