HAMPTON ROADS, Va. – Research performed by Frontier Bundles has revealed that “Independence Day” is Virginia’s favorite 90s movie.

Data analysts with the site measured several key statistics before making the declarations.

Then, the team analyzed Google Trends to identify which movies stand the test of time – which films are people still searching for?

The 1996 thriller, starring Will Smith, grossed more than $800 at the box office.
