The Day the Earth sent junk
This is a cute little stunt to send the remake of The Day the Earth Stood Still up, up, up and away, but what if it backfires? The environmental-themed makeover is getting universally awful reviews, and if the Alpha Centurians are anything like the critics they may declare interstellar war when it reaches them. Is it too late to substitute Wall-E? How about the timelessly engrossing original, now available as a two-disc special edition DVD? We really should put our best foot forward with other lifeforms; Keanu Reeves pictures are a little low on the evolutionary scale.
