The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)

1024x768

Perhaps my first review was over-harsh (goo.gl/72zToh), but nevertheless I feel this version misses a lot of what makes the 1958 film so good.  Rather than being a critique of 1950s American paranoia, this version is rather more running away from the military, and some random destruction by robot bugs and less of the Earth actually standing still.
