I have no idea what possessed me to go see The Day the Earth Stood Still on Saturday night. The ads didn’t really impress me, but I saw that it featured Coach Taylor, Dom Draper, and Archie Leach, so how bad could it be?
Let me put it this way: The absolute best part of the movie was something that happened five minutes after the credits rolled. I was in the men’s restroom and inexplicably heard Alvin & The Chipmunks doing a cover of Journey‘s “Don’t Stop Believin'” on the theater’s stereo system. I think that says it all.
