The Day The Earth Stood Still

I must diverge completely from the culinary beat and say how disappointed I was that they remade a true classic film, “The Day The Earth Stood Still”, and did a complete botch job of it. Not only did the film lack continuity it completely fell apart at the end, unlike the classic, and left gaps as far as the conclusion being reached by Klatu which was played by Keanu Reeves (perhaps because their first names are similar). He was bringing destruction on a world beyond reform and sees a mother hugging her child and comes to the conclusion that the entire human race can change. Evidently the producers ran out of film so could not develop this sudden change in emotion and purpose by witnessing one hug.

I wish they would just leave the classics alone or at least leave the story line alone as there was absolutely nothing wrong with the original and very little right about the remake.
