The Day The Earth Stood Still (2008)

the-day-the-earth-stood-still-poster-1

Keanu Reeves, Jennifer Connelly, Kathy Bates, Jaden Smith, John Cleese, Jon Hamm, Robert Knepper

The remake of the 1951 classic film. Strange spheres come out of nowhere and then once again at the US soil a strange robot and an alien appear to informs us that we are doomed, because we are bad and disrespectful of the nature. A scientist who happens to be there is determined to change his mind. So far we are still here so I guess she made it.

That was boring. I don’t know why. Perhaps there are too many films about our doom that we do not care anymore.

I kinda feel that Keanu Reeves has only one expression the past 10 years or his acting career or his face has no muscles at all. I really liked Jaden Smith who apparently got both his parents genes.

Species (1995)

Ben Kingsley, Michael Madsen, Alferd Molina, Forest Whitaker, Marg Helgenberger, Natasha Henstridge

Nice cast.

Scientists are experimenting with human and alien DNA without thinking that there are consequences to stupidity and they create a beautiful woman. Eventually she escapes and she starts to search a male for reproduction, but she has to escape being caught again.

The movie is not for an Oscar, but it is funny. It has lots of violence and nudity from Henstridge particularly. Kingsley is the scientist who is to blame for everything, Madsen is the man with the gun and Whitaker is an empath who feels what Henstrisge felt few hours back but never in the present.

There are few more sequels that I havent’t seen yet and heard some unflattering things about, but this is not my opinion… yet.
