The Day the Earth Stood Still... in vomit

Ain't It Cool News used to be great when they focused on early script reviews and productions rumors. Now, they're mostly a sycophantic Hollywood hanger-on, with writers competing to see how many F-bombs and penis jokes they can shoehorn into a slap-dash "review." Occasionally, however, they revisit the glory of yesteryear with beyond-the-horizon looks at forthcoming films. Case in point: Their current script review of the upcoming remake of "The Day the Earth Stood Still."

If even half of this is true, the film will be far, far more awful than any of us ever imagined. And I, for one, imagined it being pretty bad solely based on Keanu's participation. Dear lord, save us from mass-market corporate lobotomies.
