the day the earth stood still is one of my all time favorite old movies. So when I heard of the remake I was miffed. I mean it is well documented that most remakes fall way short of the original. It was with great surprise that I found the Keanue reeves version not at all like watching a beloved friend getting butchered ratrher The vision was totally different. The portrayal of our species as a shot first ask questions later bunch of paranoids was spot on. Honestly I doubt we would ever be in line for a first contact from a civilized world.
