    Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)

    I saw this film right after it came out in 1951 when I was 11 years old and before we had TV. We lived in a small rural community and the nearest town, (one main street) had one movie theater. My folks attended a monthly night time meeting and I would be dropped off at the movie theater to go to the movie while they went to their meeting. The meeting place was about three blocks away from the movie theater and there was only one street light in town so where they parked the car was always in the dark. This particular night, "The Day the Earth Stood Still" was showing and being a kid and into space stuff with Commander Buzz Corey of the Space Patrol, Buck Rogers and others on the radio, I super enjoyed the "real thing" in the movie, but Gort scared the peewaddly out of me. I could hardly watch when he faced the camera and that visor opened and I knew that me and someone were about to get zapped. After the movie was over, I had to walk those loooong dark blocks to the car and I just new that robot was going to step out from around a corner and eliminate me dead. I was ever so glad to get to the car and lock the doors. I still love to watch the movie today. I think it was so well done as far as special effects giving that it was long before computers and graphic software. The current version is at the $1.75 movie but I haven't been able to talk myself into seeing it as I am sure it can't live up to what I experienced many years ago, but just out of curiosity I probably will.

    Sound quality

    The reason characters whisper is because the other characters in the scene are not supposed to hear what they have to say. It seems many directors, especially in movies today, seem to think that applies to the audience viewing the movie as well,
