    The Day the Earth Stood Still

    ★★★★½

    Have watched and rewatched this black and white sci-fi movie a bunch of times over the years. Yeah, some of it is dated; the cars, the way people talk and dress, but the fear and prejudice toward the unknown are relevant in 2021.

It's an engaging way to shoot this film that adds a level of depth and immersion that accentuates the overall story and creates a compelling viewing experience.

    It's a simple plot, yet effectively told through the camerawork and mostly two actor focus. Two soldiers,…
