BEST 2. 'The Day the Earth Stood Still'
This 1951 film is a classic in every sense of the word, from its iconic score, to its notable quotes ("Klaatu barada nikto!"), to its distinctly '50s robot alien. More importantly, this sci-fi movie made a statement about the brewing Cold War by warning its characters (and, by extension, the audience) that dabbling in violence and nuclear weapons would lead to Earth's destruction. The themes are just as relevant today as they were 60 years ago.—Xfinity Entertainment Staff (Photo: Fox)
