Default I just watched The Day The Earth Stood Still (the new one)

... and there is NO way the awfulness of this film is any accident. I mean it is of such a level of perfection, it has to be of design.

Anyone else see it this way?

Saw it, was not impressed. Lots of eye candy, but that's about it.

Yet another film that could've been much more but alas, they fubar'd the script and to add insult to injury, they casted "Neo."

Like so many other near hits, it's been filed under, "Could have been a great movie."

you know, they could have fixed this movie with one line of dialog

" We came and warned you once before, back in what you call "the 50's" and you still haven't heeded our words. My name is Inigo Klaatu, You shot my father, prepare to die!"

Perfect.

Or in Keanu-rese: Dudes, like... we came back a while back to like warn you and junk, you know? And you didn't listen? And, like... whoa dude, some loser shot my dad, and now, like, I have to wipe all the dudes & dudettes from the planet or something... What's that all about anyway?! Totally bogus dude.
