Best Fourth of July movie: 'Independence Day' or 'The Patriot'?

While Americans enjoy fireworks and barbecue every July 4th, there are also some really good blockbusters about our summer's greatest holidayand they just so happen to be directed by Roland Emmerich. "Independence Day" became a mega hit in 1996, grossing more than $817 million worldwide at the box office. But the highly-praised "The Patriot" loosely retells the story of the American Revolution and the country's independence, which led to the reason for the season. Which film is better? 🎥
