THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL (2008)

I heard terrible things about this but the masochist in me forced me to rent it.  And guess what? Maybe because my expectations were low, I wound up kinda liking it, maybe even thinking it was better than the original. (Sacrilege warning: The original, except for Gort, was pretty much a yawner.)  At least the remake explains why the alien is human, and Keanu is perfect as the emotionally distant visitor. (I think he was channeling Al Gore.)  And it has a much cooler Gort.
