Post The Day the Earth Stood Still * Might contains traces of spoiler

After watching this movie, I am wondering how did the producers come up with this name...

They were actually using the SFU campus to film it? ( lecture hall, washrooms, fields) and Burnaby Lake ( clearly visible Metrotown towers )

Keanu Reeves can't speak chinese.....

It's a remake of the original movie from 1951.

The original was really good - bit of a sci-fi classic. It was sort of a cold-war analogy thing... presumably this remake is a similar analogy of our times. I'm scared that it'll suck but I still want to see it, just to see how they handled the "remake".

Yes, it is a good movie, but not the top-of-the-class type.

You would think they can grab a Chinese from SFU since they are already there

I mean how far can it be to go to West Mall for one?

Haha I think his Chinese was okay. At least he was actually understandable. Does anybody remember Robert Downey Jr's attempt at Chinese in Tropic Thunder? THAT was bad.

I agree. I think the concept had a lot of potential but the ending left a lot of questions unanswered. I would say that it was entertaining but don't expect any aspect of what happens in the movie to be logical.

Just watched it online.

I haven't seen the original.

I thought this was a good movie. Ended abruptly, but you get the message - which is an important one.

Also, wish we could have learned more about the aliens, but that's not the point of the story.
