I saw a movie called "independent&apo;s day" showing on Universal Channel.  It&apo;s obviously an attempt at capitalising on the fame of a similary titled film.

Thought that in itself is a very funny idea. 

The movie felt too low budget for me to enjoy though.

Was that an Asylum movie? The guys over at Asylum Pictures are specialists of that kind of rip off movies. They surf on the waves generated by big budget Hollywood blockbusters. The recipe works very well and the studio is very successful!
They did films like Snakes On A Train, Halloween Night, Pirates Of Treasure Island, Transmorphers, 2012 Doomsday, The Day The Earth Stopped, Terminators.... I let you guess what Hollywood films these titles are inspired by...

I love'em too! These films do not take themselves seriously, they're not trying to sell what they don't have. Asylum films are guaranteed fun. It's not about spectacular special effects, it's not about originality, it's not about award-winning name actors. It's about total, brainless entertainment, and they score at every release.

It's kinda funny for a few minutes.  Then it doesn't make the grade. 

"asylum" sounds about right for you people ;)
