The day the earth stood still
My annual cinema visit was tonight...well I think it was last January when I last went to the cinema. I think we (that is me, little miss P and another of my former work colleagues) meant to go to a mind emptying joke fest (e.g. Bride Wars) or action film, but ended up at a thought provoking version of the Al Gore film....It's a good film, about an alien race who come to earth in 'globular balls' which look something like the planet earth...they have come to save the other species then destroy the humans to allow the planet to recover 'Earth is one of 5 planets in the cosmos suitable for supporting life, we cannot allow you to destroy it'.
The film however ends on a cliffhanger, with none of the 'modern' mechanical or electronic items on earth (from a watch upwards) working. The product placement for Microsoft vista also gets quite annoying, though the touchscreen desk looks quite fun. Mind Keanu Reeves is starting to look quite old........Speed was quite a few years ago....
