Klaatu Barada Nikto…

gort–Opening today, Dec.12th is the remake of the 1951 sci-fi classic, The Day the Earth Stood Still. Although the special effects of the original are primitive by today’s standards, the 1951 version was superb, well-written and acted, and has held up remarkably well over the years.  Some remakes of sci-fi classics have, to put it mildly, been disappointing.

In the new version, the original indestructible robotic enforcer, Gort, is reportedly conceptualized as a biological rather than a mechanical entity!  Unfortunately, we supposedly only get a relatively brief look at Gort in the new movie…

…maybe Gort will get a well-deserved spin-off flick, or perhaps a late-night TV show!

    The most unneccesary remake this side of Rob Zombie’s HALLOWEEN.
