Tired of abuse by mankind, the earth is angry. Worse, the planet is out to even the score - at least in the movies...

Sounds productive. Better than having the Native Americans being the villains as they were in movies when I was young. Mind you, most people I knew were on their side.

Would've been some different ending in the film "Armageddon" if the global killer actually smashed into the earth.. now that's entertainment.

Mitth. I suspect you have a mean streak. You must know films have to have a happy ending or they won't sell.

True enough Terry. How much would Independence Day have made if the aliens won? Armageddon if the Earth gets mashed? Andromeda Strain and Outbreak sell well because we win, but stories where we lose like Boyle's Full Circle don't. Humans really need their heroes I think.
