The original is an EXCELLENT film!
Here it is streaming on Veoh.com

Thanks for posting that link, watching it now. [edit] I only got 5 minutes of the movie, I'm going to bed [/edit]

unrelated at the quotee -- I think the Terminator TV series Rocks (especially the female protector model). Is the red head actress that is in the new year the singer from the band Garbage?

Correct! Shirley Manson plays Catherine Weaver AKA T1000

The Day the Earth Stood Still

Release Date 12/12/2008

So far no matter what I do FF3(3.04) won't play or even launch any videos from that website, IE 7.0 meanwhile has no problem, I turned off both adblockers and noscript and upgraded Quicktime and iTunes and what happened? Nothing, IE played and allowed access while FF3 isn't allowed as Apple.com seems to be one of two websites that are not really compatible with 3.04, the other is the http://www.wunderground.com/ website as one can't choose a different weather station under FF3 3.04 which can be done under IE 7.0 without a problem. And what does the weatherunderground say on this? It's a configuration problem, Bull shit, Their website worked under 3.01 just fine and I didn't change anything, their just full of It and are pushing a load of CRAP to Me by saying that.

[off-topic] per se

. . . [Talkin' to myself ;) sayin'] - 'gotta remember to add note to script schedule'



@ Paul [Pawly] quote:



That's because Hollywood only remakes movies that are already great.



. . . have-ta remark on the 'Remakes' part - that's THEM - not me: on the Re-Script / Re-Make of 'It All Came True' [mine]

there was a value and IS a value in the remake of an ol' Bogart Film . . .

> Warner Bros. made a decision - back then [1940'ish] to NEVER do 'Low-Budget' Films again,

even had a shoot @ a Famous Hollywood gravesite with the Final Note / Stone regarding the 'End to Low-Budget' . . .

well, i am still re-scriptin' and shall do this Film and it'll be BIG To say the least . . .

A sci-fi book put out a few decades back called "Recall not Earth" would make a Good Movie.
All to find the last Human Women and to find a New home for Humanity.

I have no hopes for this as a film. It can't hold a candle to the timeless original. Call it something else, but don't call it "Day the Earth Stood Still."

How about "The Day I Downloaded Another Torrent"?

Whoah! I just saw your edit. You need to install VeohTV. It's safe and used by thousands.

I wish you all the luck in getting it made Richard. You would think after all this time that Hollywood would realize that substance wins the test of time over showmanship. Quality film making beats big budgets any day.
If anyone wants proof, watch "El Mariachi" , the predecessor to "Desperado". Made by, then struggling, director Robert Rodriguez utilizing friends, family and acquaintances and shot ENTIRELY ON ONE CAMERA. BRILLIANT!!

~ off topiC ~ [kind-of ;)]

. . . @ Paul - no problem with the 'making' of mi film - the $$$$$$$$$ is already set for the entire Production

all i have to do is 'finish' the re-script [10 years so far] ;)) everybody involved hasn't got any problem w/ mi timin' - because they know it'll be finished when it's finished ;))

and, since it's Foundation is based on the 'Story of My Life - Autobiographical'

- it's an on-goin' process figurin' 'when i shall place the finale'

and - in endin' - Anything Hollywood does - does NOT effect mi ;))

Note to Myself: remember new entree



. . . to Paul - again - regarding Robert's 'el Mariachi' - one can learn a heck of a lot from Mr. Rodriguez - to say the least ;) Thanks btw Sir!

What no one's interested in Recall not Earth?

It has sabotage, spying, Incredibly ancient technology, space battles, alien species(Both good and bad)[Hohd(Good), the Vulmotie[the Vuls](very Bad, tried to exterminate Humanity from space) and the enslaved Chelki[enslaved by the Vuls](Four footed furry aliens with double jointed hands and a long neck that come up out of the middle of the bodies top side(maybe Ugly to some, But very Good)), Ships that go fast and have to charge up their Mass drives(to repel Mass or to lessen the effect of Mass on a nearby ship as the ship rises or falls in an atmosphere, In the book Mass is attracted to Mass and Gravity is an artifact of Mass(Like a planet or a star)) Mass shields act as drive systems and there are what amounts to space fold systems to go between solar systems or just to empty space, Of course there are Mass detectors and some are more advanced and more accurate than contemporary systems in the book.

The Singularity is Near by Ray Kurzweil

Renowned inventor Kurzweil may be technology's most credibly hyperbolic optimist.

Elsewhere he has argued that eliminating fat intake can prevent cancer; here, his

quarry is the future of consciousness and intelligence.

Humankind, it runs, is at the threshold of an epoch . . .

["the singularity," a reference to the theoretical limitlessness of exponential expansion]

that will see the merging of our biology with the staggering achievements of "GNR"

[genetics, nanotechnology and robotics] to create a species of unrecognizably

high intelligence, durability, comprehension, memory and so on.


. . . he examines the next step in this inexorable evolutionary process: the union of human and machine,

in which the knowledge and skills embedded in our brains will be combined with the vastly greater capacity,

speed, and knowledge-sharing ability of our creations.

Wow, thanks Carlos. Did some surfing & came up with this....Foundation on Big Screen.

Unfortunately, I agree with the many comments made on the site, the trilogy is just too complex to cut down to a couple of hours worth of film. It would be better if they produced a mini-series similar to "V".

Also, sorely tempted to see Day the Earth Stood Still at the cinema tomorrow rather than wait for the DVD.
