Uh...light years ago...
It was rather good...but it does not live up to the hype...in my opinion...
It could have a bit more action to it...
It´s not that far better than the last version of it...

It was good, not better than the original. They were good to not make it overly action packed... If there is one thing I despise in movies, it's when they do a remake, and make it more about the action and the special effects than about the story.

I know but...they should have used that Robot a bit more...
It was kind of a waste of time and useless to have that in the movie... 🙁

How many times have aliens used a giant robot or space ship with laser rays, and all that stuff, to destroy Earth?

I can't remember the last time one of them turned into a swarm of robotic locust-like nanites disintegrating everything in their path. I think the effect was better, I think made our own technology look that much more pathetic in comparison... I mean big deal, in every other alien invasion movie the aliens make a bigger bomb or a bigger gun to make our weapons and building blow up, and we can build a bigger bomb too, in contrast, nothing we have can do what the aliens in this movie could do, and in this movie we survive simply because they let us.

i thought the beginning was good, promising, made you think about what an event like that would be like, how you'd feel, etc ... which these kinds of movies are supposed to do ... but after about the first 45 minutes, really dropped off for me and got boring ... john cleese was cool as always but it dragged and was kind of blah the second half ...

i just rewatched the original the other day and it still satisfies ... i think it was the first of the 'alien invasion' films to have the aliens 'come in peace' rather than zapping everyone when the hit the atmosphere ... nice message and not terribly heavy-handed ...

btw then watch 'the invasion of the body snatchers', the original, and man that still creeps me out and pops up my heart rate ... really like that one ... i think the best of the 50s, early 60s (or maybe the b&w) scifi movies 🙂

take care 🙂

If I`m to be completely honest. The movies starting from T2 to the Matrix were the bes tmovies ever with both storyline and effects.

Today´s movies are way too computarized which looks worse than the movies from the 90´s and the storylines are like taken from a 4 year old kid 🙄 🙄 🙄

If I have to say some movies that stands a bit close to the 90´s...I have to say is Jurassic Park 3, LOTR Trilogy, Transformers 1 and Flightplan...
Maybe some more but most are simply crap compared to the old times...

And no I`m not old either 🙄 Laugh 🙄
