The Day the Earth Stood Still Movie Review by BillyBob (7/11/2013)

Put bluntly, to compare this dreadful remake to the glowing, 1951 original would be like comparing a bucket of steaming vomit to, say, a garden of delicate violets, or something to that general effect. (I think you get my point)

One of the many, many questions that came to mind (while wasting away 2 hours of my life here)...

But, he is stood in the way of woman, played by the hot Jennifer...

The Day the Earth Stood Still Movie Review by Jarrod (12/15/2008)

'The Day the Earth Stood Still' is bad enough on its own, but worse when compared to the 1951 original from Robert Wise. I did not go I into this unbiased; I admire much of 50s science fiction, and consider The Day the Earth Stood Still to be one of the best representatives of the genre, along with Them and Invasion of...
