Without the earth we cannot live, but the earth can live without us, that is the general and unfortunately scary realistic idea of the movie The Day The Earth Stood Still.
The subject of humans being just another species on this planet is brilliant because that is what we are even if many of us driven by power, money, greed … tempt to forget about it. Humans not respecting the earth and their own kind is no science fiction, it is reality and a subject I could not wait to see on the big screen.
Unfortunately we have left the theater extremely disappointed and wondering how and who can ruin an entire movie when you have a great story, good actors and amazing special effects artist!!!?
I think the real and only interesting subject of the movie was under-developed, I mean we’ve seen it all when it comes to aliens and spaceships landing in Manhattan even THE destruction scene is kind of all in the trailer (and that is one thing I hate). But it is just like in real life, when you have a majority of people doing their best to change things at the end it is on a couple of people to decide for us all and often make the wrong decisions.
Still on the subject of mother earth and its phenomenon, tonight I don’t know if you guys have noticed (I didn’t until I read it online) but it was the biggest full moon in 15 years as this natural satellite reaches its closest point to our planet. 14 percent bigger and 30 percent brighter according to NASA. For some it is still the time to go outside and look up, but don’t worry if the earth does not stand still before that, the next time this will happen is 2016!
As you can see on the picture we took tonight in Los Angeles it was big and bright. When the moon rose over the Hollywood Hills it seemed like a sun rise.
