Thoughts on a Film #488
The Day the Earth Stood Still
This doesn’t retain a reputation of cheesiness that many science fiction films of the 1950s are sort of synonymous. I think I can attribute that to the obvious pro-peace message it has going on. I mean that’s all fine and dandy I suppose, but does that really merit such high status in its genre? Or maybe I’m just being a snob, I dunno.

I lamented over Alain Resnais this morning, yet I had no idea the Oscars were today until about a few hours before hand. I’m out of touch with the film industry even though I seem to be with it.
