The Day The Earth Stood Still

Keanu Reeves takes on the role of Klaatu in this remake / update of the 1951 sci-fi classic. It's okay but nothing more; however it has made me want to watch the original again, so it's not a complete disaster!

Read my review of The Day The Earth Stood Still


And, for your enjoyment, a trailer for the 1951 original:

Hi Captain D,
"The Day the Earth Stood Still" is one of my favorites sci-fis. I saw it a few years ago; the magic still works.

Despite your lack of enthusiasm for the new version, I 'll give it a chance, of course, and then let you know. Your severe reviews lower my expectations about medium movies, increasing my chances of liking them. That's nice! Double-thank you!

Hey Stella!

Well I do hope you enjoy it, but I didn't feel I was being harsh - just honest! :-D
