"Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!"

The Day the Earth Stood Still is a brilliant, influential landmark science fiction production that stands the test of time. Many will see the film as dated and unnecessary, but truth be told the film has lost essentially none of its original impact. It delivers an exceptional message (that couldn't have come at a better time, I might add) and ends withou... read more

So the theme of the movie seems to be, Pursue peace and everything will be wonderful, and if you don't, you will be obliterated by a killer robot. The hypocrisy drips.

Now I understand why this is a classic and, perhaps, the best sci-fi movie to come out of the atomic age of cinema. It's easily the best I've seen so far from the 50's and, unlike some others of the era, possesses a sound story, realistic dialogue and great acting. While I like Reeves and Co"

" Netflix Instant Project 2014 Recommended by VierasTalo This film is considered a science-fiction classic and I can definitely understand what they were trying to do being certainly impressive stuff for the '50s. However, I wasn't really that impressed when I decided to watch The Day The Earth Stood Still for the Netflix Instant Project 2014. I think for the time this film mostly worked. Some information, ideas, and effects are dated but there are some elements that still work to this day. Th"
