The Day the Earth Stood Still

  • The Day the Earth Stood Still
  • Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly, Kathy Bates, John Cleese, Jaden Smith
  • Directed by Scott Derrickson

Keanu Reeves, sporting even less than one expression, plays an alien who rockets to Earth to kick our ass for global warming. That something so bad can score so heavily at the box office scares me more than anything in this gasbag remake of the 1951 sci-fi classic.
