The Day the Earth Stood Still - Poster.

Yep, the remake for one of the best sci-fi movies of all time. Still not sure on this one. I don't really see the point of a remake. There are rumours going round that Gort will this time be some kind of robot dog thing, which makes me shudder. Still a long time to go so we shall have to wait and see. Comment below with your thoughts on the matter.

I can only assume that Canoe Reeves (spelling mistake intentional) was cast as "The World" in this movie. His acting is as wooden as a Giant Sequoia and moves at the same pace as one.
Agree with the host of this blog on his comments. I cannot see why this film needs to be re-made. Is Hollywood so scrambling for ideas that they feel the need to remake every film that has now got a 50 year shelf life? What next? A remake of "Some Like It Hot", "Singing in the Rain" and "On the Waterfront"? These films are still revered as much today as they were when they were first released. It's lazy, lazy, lazy.

Makes you wonder why the Scriptwriters went on strike a few months ago....Did they all have writers block at the same time?
