Thread: The Day the Earth Stood Still

  1. The Day the Earth Stood Still

    We saw The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008) last night. It's a remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951).

    I'd love to post a completely ecstatic review or a terribly awful review, but I can't. The movie was extremely average.

    All of the major actors performed competently. The story line existed and moved forward at a decent pace. The special effect were reasonably good.

    The film has been nominated for Satellite Awards in the categories of Sound (Mixing & Editing) and Visual Effects, but I doubt it will win.

    They changed the movie's moral a bit from the 1951 version. In that version, the aliens wanted us to live in peace or they would kill us. In this one, the aliens want us to be eco-friendly or they will kill us. How hippies have changed in fifty years.

    It's not a terrible way to spend 103 minutes of your life, but this is probably a movie that you should wait to watch until it comes out on television.

    Too bad I didn't see this review earlier

    Sounds like it has a few more plot holes than the original. If they are super advanced aliens, why don't they just solve our problems for us?

    John Cleese is playing another egg head. When you look like Professor Frink, I guess it does limit your roles.

  5. Just watched it, pretty lame, both the message and the delivery.
    Plenty of holes in the storyline and the robot doesn't look that cool.
    I did like the professor though.
