Hi there bloggies, I’ve been seeing some post warning me of an A – Z Challenge and I was curious. I’ve seen this around before but have never participated, for some mad reason I thought I would give it a go.
So here I am.
My theme is the A-Z of Scifi moves, I’ve not given this a great deal of thought and I know of a number but I won’t lie there’s some I will struggle with. I hope you enjoy them!
D is for the Day the Earth Stood Still
Before I start stop, it’s D, not T. If not I would have a tough time choosing T. The Day the Earth stood still was made originally in 1951 and again in 2008. An alien spacecraft makes its way across the solar system and lands in New York. The lone occupant (Klaatu) is mistaken as aggressive and is shot. Escaping from hospital Klaatu has a message he has to deliver to the world and with the military hunting him this isn’t going to be easy.
This film , whichever one is a classic, it’s not your everyday sci-fi flick and that’s what makes it that bit special. From the very human message to come from the stars to the powerful Gort this story, these films make for me a powerful story. The main theme is about the message where humanity is told that it needs to live peacefully. This is what makes the film timeless as it’s as relevant today as it was then.
Have you seen this The Day the Earth Stood Still? Both the old and new?
That makes for letter D – E should follow tomorrow!
