The Day the Earth Stood Still, review

The original TDTESS is one of my all time favorite movies.  Life was simpler back when the world was black and white and I remember being so amazed and moved by the message and special effects.  There is no way I would miss seeing the new version on the big screen even with the bad reviews.  Keanu Reeves gets a lot of flak about his limited range of emotions, but I like him and he is still very handsome.  Michael Rennie he is not, but not many are.  Jennifer Connelly was quite good as the woman.  There is no touch of romance like the original.   I am disappointed that she did not have to track down Gort and utter the famous phrase “Klaatu, barada, nikto”.   The pace is fast in the beginning.  Jaden Smith is adorable as the son.   The movie did not have that special oomph reserved imo opinion for movies like Matrix, Alien, 2001 Space Odessey,  and Bladerunner…no brilliant originality that will make it a classic.  But I was pleased that it was much better then 1/4.  I will rate it 3.5/5 acorns, no clives.  arts_dayearthstill_584
