TCP - The Day the Earth Stood Still




It's Tuesday Couch Potatoes once again which is every Tuesday movie lover will showcase movies they like the fit to the theme. For the 18th edition of Tuesday Couch Potatoes, couchers will features movies about Apocalypse; which is literally means the "revelation" the idea of an end of the world, or final battle something like that. My pick would be the movie The Day the Earth Stood Still starring Keanu Reeves and Jennifer Connelly. It is a good movie if you just want something to watch or kill some time. I like the part where people and the city started to disappear and keanu is the only hope to stop or save the earth. The kid Jaden Smith did a great job in portraying his character, he is a good actor. So, those who haven't watch the movie you should watch it.


Starring: Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly, Jaden Smith, John Cleese, Jon Hamm, Kyle Chandler, Kathy Bates
Director: Scott Derrickson
Genre: Science-Fiction/Fantasy

Synopsis: A remake of the 1951 sci-fi classic of the same name, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL follows astrobiologist Helen Benson (Jennifer Connelly) as she is unceremoniously plucked from her everyday life... A remake of the 1951 sci-fi classic of the same name, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL follows astrobiologist Helen Benson (Jennifer Connelly) as she is unceremoniously plucked from her everyday life with her stepson (Jaden Smith), and whisked away to consult the government on a top-secret matter. That matter happens to be the arrival of a massive glowing sphere in Central Park, accompanied by a towering robot-like protector dubbed Gort and an alien ambassador named Klaatu (Keanu Reeves), who takes up human form to communicate with the people of Earth. When Klaatu finds himself faced with hawkish, uncompromising officials, he goes on the run with Benson and her son as the fate of the world gradually becomes clear. Directed by Scott Derrickson (THE EXORCISM OF EMILY ROSE), this reimagining of THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL is fairly reverent to the original film, while adding a number of 21st-century elements, most notably a darker tone embodied by a more threatening Gort and the chilly, contemplative Klaatu, who is portrayed with pitch-perfect remove by Reeves. While the film--and the fate of humanity--rests on Reeves's shoulders, the cast is impressively filled out by Connelly and Smith, along with Kathy Bates, John Cleese, and familiar TV actors Jon Hamm (MAD MEN) and Kyle Chandler (FRIDAY NIGHT LIGHTS). Derrickson also tempers excellent special effects with a bleak color palette and plenty of existential turmoil, making this EARTH a thoughtful and fascinatingly moody blockbuster.

Hindi ko pa napapanuod ang sineng ito although mukhang maganda naman. Hindi ako nakakapanuod sa sinehan dahil nagtitipid ako at inilalaan ko ang budget namin para sa mga anak ko. Siguro later bibili na lang ako nang bagong DVD para makapanuod uli nang mga bagong palabas. Nasira kasi nang baha yung dati naming DVD kasama nung iba pa naming kasangkapan. Thanks for the post. God bless you all always.
