"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.

" In the 1950's Hollywood churned out sci-fi films, and horror, like paper cups meant straight for the garbage. This was the heyday of the drive-in B-movie, after all. So when this intelligent, thoughtful, and politically aware science-fiction film was released, audiences and critics couldn't help but take notice. "

"I think I vaguely remember the day way back when the Earth stood still. Wasn't that the day that nothing moved? Or am I thinking about Labor Day? My memory gets kinda fuzzy when it comes to the McCarthyism Red scare sci-fi era. Anyways, this is a film where the aliens do come in peace, but they also come with a warning. We humans need to behave. Or if we don't, the aliens are likely to give us a spanking. On a galactic level."

50 Great Movies That Were Not Nominated For Any Os (50 movies items)

"“Interstellar” fans complaining that the Academy has overlooked Christopher Nolan’s film in most of the major categories should take comfort that the Oscars have never been kind to science-fiction: Robert Wise’s 1951 classic about an alien visitor, reactionary humans, and a giant robot is universally acknowledged as a towering classic of the genre, but was ignored completely at awards time, bar a special Golden Globe for “promoting international understanding.”"
