Descriptions du produit

Mitten in Washington D. C. landet ein außerirdischer Abgesandter mit seinem Raumschiff. Gemeinsam mit einem riesigen Roboter, dessen zerstörerische Fähigkeiten unvorstellbar sind, verlässt er sein Schiff und sucht Kontakt zu den Menschen. So beginnt einer der ganz großen Science-Fiction-Klassiker der Filmgeschichte! Der Außerirdische Klaatu fordert die Menschen auf, endlich in Frieden miteinander zu leben. Falls dies nicht geschehe, drohe der Erde eine unvorstellbare Katastrophe. Niemand ausser der hübschen Helen Benson und einem Wissenschaftler nehmen seine Warnungen ernst. Als Klaatu die Sinnlosigkeit seiner Versuche erkennt, demonstriert er der Welt seine Macht auf eine Art und Weise, die wohl niemand jemals vergessen wird.

We are visited by a flying saucer that lands near the U.S. capital. As a precaution the saucer is surrounded by the military with tanks, carbines, and side arms. The ship opens up and a being, Klaatu (Michael Rennie), steps out. He makes a menacing move with a foreign object. A quick thinking well trained military man shoots first.
Why are we being visited? A mysterious man named Mr. Carpenter may hold the answer. However the only people that will listen to the message are the world's scientists. To bring his point home Klaatu holds a demonstration. The result of the demonstration gives the movie its title "The Day the Earth Stood Still"
Besides being a classic this movie also captures a time. It is intriguing looking at the technology of the time and even the locations before they changed (some have not changed).
It is still fun to watch as Klaatu is encountered, detained, and the state of the governments (does not look like things have changed much). We all want to say to Gort "Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!"
This movie was better built than most for its time and rivals some movies of today. The message is still relevant and we sometimes try to apply the same solution here.

THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL [1951] [Limited Edition SteelBook] [Blu-ray] [UK Release] From Out of Space . . . A Warning and An Ultimatum!

A hallmark of the science fiction genre as well as a wry commentary on the political climate of the 1950s, ‘The Day the Earth Stood Still’ is a sci-fi film less concerned with special effects than with a social parable. A spacecraft lands in Washington, D.C., carrying a humanoid messenger from another world [Michael Rennie] imparting a warning to the people of Earth to cease their violent behaviour. But panic ensues as the messenger lands and is shot by a nervous soldier. His large robot companion destroys the Capitol as the messenger escapes the confines of the hospital. He moves in with a family as a boarder and blends into society to observe the full range of the human experience. Director Robert Wise [West Side Story] not only provides one of the most recognisable icons of the science fiction world in his depiction of the massive robot loyal to his master, but he avoids the obvious camp elements of the story to create a quiet and observant story highlighting both the good and the bad in human nature.

FILM FACT: Well-known broadcast journalists of their time, H.V. Kaltenborn, Elmer Davis, Drew Pearson, and Gabriel Heatter, appeared and/or were heard as themselves in cameo roles. Patricia Neal, who played Helen Benson, was only 12 years older than Billy Gray, who played her son. Spencer Tracy and Claude Rains were originally considered for the part of Klaatu. Edmund H. North, who wrote The Day the Earth Stood Still, also created the alien language used in the film, including the iconic phrase "Klaatu barada nikto".

HASH(0xa0ade468) étoiles sur 5 Remember back when nothing "happened" in movies? 30 mai 2003
Par Michael G. Brennan - Publié sur
Format: DVD Achat vérifié
Watching this recently, it amazed me how little action there is in this movie, and yet it remains as captivating and enthralling as ever. There are none of the set pieces we have come to expect in modern genre films: no explosions, no gory deaths, one small chase scene. Tension is developed through character development and the wonderful performances of Patricia Neal and Michael Rennie, with some wonderful supporting work from Sam Jaffe and Frances Bavier (Mayberry's Aunt Bea!)
There are very few special effects: the odd tank disappears in a glow of light, but other than that, this is a film driven by character development. Taut direction by Robert Wise, straightforward writing from Edmund North and impressive cinematography by Leo Tower create an intelligent, literate, adult science fiction film that appeals to all ages.
Special mention must be made of Bernard Herrmann's haunting score. One of the first film scores to use Leon Theremin's eerie and eponymous electronic instrument, which unfortunately became a genre cliché, the music adds immeasurably to the tense and unsettling atmosphere.
Modern audiences may find the film's message heavy handed and obvious, relying on 1950's atomic paranoia and the absolute power it brought. In fact, Klaatu's proffered peaceful solution borders on totalianarianism. But these are minor considerations considering this is a simple story stunningly told.
The DVD contains many interesting extras of interest to film buffs and collectors, including a shooting script, extended discussions on the evolution of the film from idea to release, and an odd look at the people fascinated with collecting 1950's sci-fi film props and paraphernalia.

HASH(0xa0ade6b4) étoiles sur 5 A Review Of The New 2-Disc, "Special Edition" DVD of, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL 5 décembre 2008
Par stryper - Publié sur
Format: DVD
First and foremost, this is a review for the 1951, black and white, 1.33:1 aspect ratio, 2-disc, special edition DVD and NOT for the remake (Gort! Keanu barada nikto :)

Okay so here's the lowdown; as I now have both this new edition and the original single, flipper disc, version, and having watched all of the bonus features on the new 2-disc set, I can tell you this: keep the old disc!

Why, because the 73 plus minute, making of, on the original disc is gone, replaced with a new 23 minute fluff piece that only skims the surface of the story, of the making of this film.

Gone are the lengthy on camera interviews with the producer, director and female lead, replaced instead with film historian's inane babble, with the odd snippet of voice recordings of the director and producer, taken from the 73 plus minutes, making of, from the original disc (without the on camera picture).

Also gone, is the very interesting, "Collectors", segment, tacked onto the end of the original making of, which had several prominent collectors showing off such treasures as the original flying saucer model and Gort statue, used in the actual film, with anecdotes about the film, and where the props they now owned, had ended up after the filming.

As for the extra stuff added to the 2-disc set, nothing is worth the non-inclusion of the original making of from the first disc (most of the new stuff has nothing to do with the film, but instead conveys the political tensions of the world at that time, which, although slightly of interest, is not worth upgrading for).

And on a new extra note for the new 2-disc set, the reading of, Farewell To The Master, is poorly executed, with a static picture with simple playing instructions, present throughout the entire reading (where as they could of has stills from the film playing throughout the reading, while the soundtrack played quietly in the background) and trying to maneuver through the reading is a nightmare, as there are three chapter stops, which are about 10 plus minutes each, with no way of fast searching through the 10 plus minute segments, so if you stop playing the reading at 9 minutes, you can't start the playback where you left off but instead have to listen to the whole thing from the start of the chapter (I know this because I stopped the playback for a minute, and when I hit the play button on the remote, the film started to play, so I had to go back to the menu and start the reading again, and listen to the stuff I had already heard. I would have preferred that an onscreen text version of the short (45 pages - not so short in my books) story be included instead).

So unless you are a completes, then this 2-disc version isn't worth the money, and even if you are looking to buy this for the first time, I'd HIGHLY recommend that you pick up the original DVD release, as the picture quality is the same, and you get the far superior 73 plus minute, making of, along with the director's commentary, picture galleries and original trailer.

HASH(0xa0ade8f4) étoiles sur 5 Gort! Klaatu barada nikto! 16 août 2002
Par Gary F. Taylor - Publié sur
Format: Cassette vidéo Achat vérifié
In many respects THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL is a very dated film. Obviously a comment on Cold War paranoias, it has little in the way of special effects or high-class production values, Edmund H. North's script is surprisingly talky, and it captures the very clunky look of late-1940s/early-1950s America to an uncomfortable degree. Certainly few involved in the project took it very seriously--even leading lady Patricia Neal admitted that she and Michael Rennie had tremendous difficulty keeping straight faces while spouting "Gort! Klaatu barada nikto!" But strangely, against all the odds, the film continues to speak, capturing the imagination of each new generation that sees it.

The film's enduring power seems to arise from its very simplicity, which lifts the story of a visitor from outer space from mere sci-fi pulp to the level of a parable. As frequently noted, the film contains significant religious symbolism. It is easy to read the visitor as Christ, the woman who befriends him as Mary Magdalene, the man who betrays him as Judas, and the message the visitor brings as both call to repentance and opportunity for redemption--and whatever one's actual religious beliefs, the film taps into these archetypes to create a very effective modern morality tale that works on several levels. At the same time, the film makes a surprisingly acid comment on American and international politics, small minded bigotry, and media hysteria that still rings true today. And the film has surprising visual power. Although the cinematography is very basic, and the design of both the spaceship and the robot Gort are very simple, they combine to create a number of startling images: the first moment that Gort is seen standing on the spaceship's ramp; the spacecraft interior; Gort as he menaces a screaming Patricia Neal--images so simple and yet so powerful that they have become part of our cultural landscape.

The cast plays very unpretentiously and cleanly, and although Rennie and Neal may have snickered on the set none of it shows in their performances. Both are very memorable. Hugh Marlowe is appropriately smarmy as Neal's unpleasant boyfriend, and Sam Jaffe and Billy Gray are enjoyable in their supporting roles; film buffs will also enjoy seeing Frances Bavier (television's "Aunt Bea") in a rare film appearance. Robert Wise's direction is impressively unobtrusive, and any review that did not reference Bernard Herrman's brilliant score--which easily doubles the film's effectiveness--would be incredibly remiss. If you want computer generated special effects, evil aliens, and lots of blood-letting, you should look elsewhere... but if you want something to think about, and something that will hold up under repeated viewings, THE DAY THE EARTH STOOD STILL is strongly recommended.

HASH(0xa0adea98) étoiles sur 5 SF drama at its best! 17 janvier 2001
Par Rabbi Yonassan Gershom - Publié sur
Format: Cassette vidéo
This classic movie has aged very well -- even after 50 years it's still highly watchable and completely relevant. Some of the dialogue -- such as the discussion about how difficult it would be to get all of Earth's heads of state together in the same room -- could be taken from today's headlines. Also like today, the scientists find it easier to meet on common ground than the politicians! (Watch out for the cigarette smoking, though --- even the doctors light up in the hospital hallways! Oh well, that's really how it was back in the 50s. At the same time, it's neat to see all those "classic" cars and other props.)
This film goes to show that special effects (of which this movie has relatively few) are not necessary for effective science fiction. With good actors performing an excellent script, it doesn't really matter that the robot is a man in a rubber costume or the flying saucer looks a bit fakey when it first comes down to earth. You soon get so caught up in the story, that it's easy to suspend disbelief and let it be real. (I'm very glad they didn't colorize this, because the B&W lighting effects are a big part of the illusion. Adding color would ruin it.)
Precisely because the script doesn't go into much detail about how the spaceship works, it doesn't seem as dated as many other 1950s films. The minimalist interior of the UFO simply suggests technology so far advanced, that you can fill in explanations with your own imagination. (Frankly, I like this approach much better than the constant technobabble in recent Star Trek episodes.) Michael Rennie plays a highly intelligent alien who could be a forerunner of Spock (minus the pointed ears), and Sam Jaffe is just wonderful as the Einstein-like scientist whose unbridled curiousity and openess toward the unknown is a fine role model for us all. This movie is true drama at its best!

HASH(0xa0adee70) étoiles sur 5 The film that defined an era in Sci-Fi. . . 8 décembre 1999
Par John A. Kuczma - Publié sur
Format: Cassette vidéo Achat vérifié
The Day the Earth Stood Still was the first relatively modern film to show that Science Fiction and horror do not necessarily equate. Unlike most of the genre at that time, and even today, TDTESS derives its strength not from violence and destruction but from the then rather radical message that peace and reason were superior to power and conquest. The fact that the message is delivered by alien "invaders" adds the magic of irony and role reversal to the story.
Michael Rennie displays a marvelous range of acting skills, ranging from patient forbearance to barely concealed contempt, in his dealings with understandably cynical and suspicious humans. Patricia Neal fills a truly unique niche for the cinema of the day, portraying an independent woman with the intellect to think for herself, the strength of character to say what she feels, and the courage to take action when necessary. Sam Jaffe is delightful as the distinguished Professor Barnhart, who serves as the catalyst in allowing Klaatu (Rennie) to present his message of sober self-determination with the potential for either enlightening or ominous consequences.
The monster of this film is the robot Gort, also unusual in that he seldom initiates any form of activity, but reacts decisively and often irrevocably when provoked. Another unusual twist is this thought-provoking movie is that many of the mysteries surrounding Gort are never revealed.
Most Sci-Fi of the early days either had no message, or the message was so shallow and transparent as to be laughable. The messages brought forth in TDTESS are many and varied, both overt and subtle. Among the most obvious are that, while man holds his fate in his own hands, there comes a point at which he is no longer in control of the consequences of irresponsible action. Another is that those we assume to be enemies are not necessarily so, and those we determine to be friends may not always remain that way.
Although The Day the Earth Stood Still is more than forty years old, it remains a profound, effective gem of Science Fiction as relevant today as it was in the early days of the Cold War.
This movie belongs in the library of any true Sci-Fi enthusiast.
