|Title:||The Day the Earth Stood Still|
|10.05.09||Netflix|| I realize that the original was pretty explicit in its social message as well, but for some reason nuclear responsibility is just a lot cooler than environmentalism. I feel like if one more filmmaker tries to tell me to lower my carbon footprint, I will stamp their face with my supposedly huge contribution. Ugh.|
Anyway, this was ok. A lot of the charm of the original seems to be lost now that science fiction is very well established and all of these concepts are much more familiar. Keanu did ok. Gort's nanobot particle destruction cloud was kinda cool but also kind of sucked. I hate that they made Gort into G.O.R.T. Why keep Keanu Klaatu then? Whatever.
All in all it's pretty mediocre. Not bad, not good. just images passing in front of my face, while i kill the earth with the power it takes my tv and dvd player to run. oops.
