The Day the Earth Stood Still (2008)

Keanu Reeves was made to play emotionless aliens, but that still doesn't make the movie better than the original (see below). 

Same plot as the old movie, but with a different cause for alarm: the environment. The effects are more sophisticated too.

This movie tries too hard to explain everything rather than leaving it a mystery like in the original. It also tries to endear us to the characters without giving them original dialogue. The movie isn't all bad though - Jennifer Connelly is fun to watch.
