That would be three days actually — a Friday, Saturday and Sunday that amassed $31 million cash money for the inane, critically savaged Keanu Reeves remake of the 1951 sci-fi classic, The Day the Earth Stood Still. If that weren't bad enough, Fox studios and a privately owned celestial communications network came up with an even stupider publicity campaign to hype the movie about an alien (Reeves) who visits earth to destroy us for destroying the planet through global warming. They utilized equipment at Cape Canaveral to beam the movie to Alpha Centauri, the nearest star system to Earth. Experts say it will take four years to receive the transmission. If there is life on Alpha Centauri, lord knows what revenge they might enact in 2012 for inflicting this crap on them. Me, I rushed home after the screening to watch the original Day the Earth Stood Still on DVD, in sparkling black-and-white, to get the bad taste out of my mouth. Am I wrong? Did you find something to like about the remake? I'm all ears.
