->''[[MemeticMutation Klaatu...]] [[KlaatuBaradaNikto barada... nikto.]]''

'''''The Day The Earth Stood Still''''' is a 1951 black-and-white science fiction movie based on the short story ''Farewell to the Master''. The HumanAlien Klaatu lands in Washington DC (in a classic [[FlyingSaucer flying saucer]]) during the ColdWar era. The paranoid military shoots him, prompting his [[KillerRobot robot]] Gort to go on a rampage. Klaatu stops Gort, then tells the President of a message for all the world's leaders (who can't agree on a meeting place). Klaatu later escapes to live among the people of Earth and learns of their penchant for war -- but also of their message of peace and understanding.

As a demonstration of power, Klaatu freezes everything mechanical in the entire world (except for airplanes in flight and hospital electronics) for exactly half an hour. (This is the event referred to in the title, though nobody calls it such within the story.) The military takes this as a sign of hostile intent and responds by hunting Klaatu down and killing him. Shortly before they catch up with him, Klaatu gives one of his newfound human friends, Helen, a message to deliver to Gort in his own language: "[[KlaatuBaradaNikto Klaatu barada nikto]]." Gort re-activates upon Klaatu's death and begins destroying the city, but Helen's message diverts Gort into retrieving Klaatu's body. The robot temporarily revives Klaatu, who tells the people of Earth of Gort's true purpose: he, and other robots like him, were built to enforce peace in the galaxy -- and if humans bring their warlike ways into space, they will be destroyed. Klaatu leaves Earth with a simple phrase to mull over: "The choice is yours."

This film's plot was copied in the extremely similar (yet hilarious) ''PlanNineFromOuterSpace''.

A 2008 [[TheRemake remake]] starred Keanu Reeves in the role of Klaatu; you can see the plot of the remake as recapped by a Bum in [[http://www.thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/bum-reviews/3104-the-day-the-earth-stood-still this video]] on [[ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Bum Reviews]].

!!''The Day The Earth Stood Still'' provides examples of the following tropes:

* AliensStealCable: Klaatu says that his people have been monitoring Earth's radio signals, and that this is the source of his knowledge of Earth culture and language; however, the common subtrope of aliens being unable to distinguish fiction from reality is avoided.
* BenevolentAlienInvasion: Played mostly straight in the original. Subverted in the remake.
* CrushKillDestroy: Averted
* CyberCyclops
* DisintegratorRay: Gort's eye beam
* EarthShatteringKaboom: Klaatu warns that if humanity continues to be so violent, his society will have to do this.
* EinsteinHair: Professor Barnhardt
* TheEndOfTheWorldAsWeKnowIt
* ExecutiveMeddling: At the end, after Gort [[spoiler:brings Klaatu back from the dead]], the filmmakers were made to add dialogue specifying that the result was temporary and that [[spoiler:"the power of life and death ... is reserved for the Almighty Spirit"]].
* FirstContact
* FlyingSaucer
* FutureMusic
* HanlonsRazor: For the most part, Klaatu blames human aggression and violence on ''irresponsibility'', not malicious intent.
* HolographicTerminal: The UrExample. Being a movie from the 1950's, Klaatu of course does not have access to CGI hologram special effects, but he does wave at his computer to control it from a distance.
* HotMom: Both versions.
* HumanAliens
* HumanityOnTrial
* HumansAreBastards
* HumansAreMorons
* InnocentAliens
* InterruptedCooldownHug
* JerkAss: Tom, who rats Klaatu out to the Feds.
* KlaatuBaradaNikto: [[TropeNamer The Trope Namer.]]
* KillerRobot
* NiceJobBreakingItHero: The item shot out of Klaatu's hand was a gift for the President that would have advanced science significantly.
* NoCelebritiesWereHarmed: Professor Barnhardt is a clear stand-in for AlbertEinstein.
* PoorCommunicationKills:
** Almost. Klaatu refuses to deliver his message until he can deliver it to representatives of each nation in person, all at once. The 'kills' part comes from the threat of global destruction if everyone doesn't listen. He also never communicates this threat to the appropriate people.
*** He also assumes that walking right up to the military with a strange object that pops open unexpectedly couldn't be misconstrued ''at all''.
** Helen tells Tom not to tell the authorities about Klaatu, but doesn't say why it's such a bad idea - that Klaatu's people will destroy Earth.
* ScareChord: The Piano got some really bad abuse during the making of this film.
* ScreamingWoman: Helen
* ShootHimHeHasAWallet: Happens to Klaatu in the beginning.
* SpacePolice
* SpaceWhaleAesop: Give up war or be destroyed by robots from outer space.
* TwoOfYourEarthMinutes: When Klaatu is telling the President's representative how long and how far he's traveled to reach Earth.
* WeComeInPeaceShootToKill: Of the first variety.
** Partial aversion. Almost everyone is (reasonably) suspicious of Klaatu at first, but only one nervous soldier actually shoots him. It's not until Earth Stands Still (a harmless demonstration of power, meant to get Earth to recognize the seriousness of the situation), that everyone starts trying to kill him.
* WorthlessYellowRocks: Klaatu's diamonds.
-----
!!The following tropes apply specifically to the 2008 remake:

* [[AliensSpeakingEnglish Aliens Speaking Mandarin Chinese]]
* AliensStealCable: used, but not thoroughly: even though the aliens had been studying the Earth for a while, Klaatu had apparently never heard Bach before.
* AliensAreBastards: The aliens are committing genocide against a sentient race to protect a planet which is in no appreciable danger. Even if we wipe ourselves out life will go on, and [=CO2=] and methane scrubbing bacteria will come in and clean up after us. This is instead of just giving us better technology. They had to get to our level of technology, to get to theirs.
* AvengersAssemble: Gathering the team.
* BlueAndOrangeMorality: Presumably Klaatu's actions aren't as hypocritical to him as they are to us.
* BrokenAesop: We're destroying the other species on our planet, and aliens think that's bad. Fine. So why does Helen's love for Jacob change Klaatu's mind? A mother's love for a child of her own species, while charming, doesn't really show anything except a desire to perpetuate her species. It'd be more valid if she showed love for an animal, perhaps something [[WhatMeasureIsANonCute completely dissimilar to humans.]] Instead, ThePowerOfLove conquers all.
** Another problem is how, in the original, despite the distrust he faces, [[RousseauWasRight Klaatu still believes in human goodness]], whereas in the remake, Klaatu is as distrustful of humans as they are of him.
* TheCameo: Gurrak
* FunWithAcronyms: The US government decides Klaatu's robot buddy is '''G'''enetically '''O'''rganized '''R'''obotic '''T'''echnology--apparently, just having Klaatu ''say'' "Gort" at some point wasn't remakey enough.
* GoryDiscretionShot: We never see anyone getting totally disintegrated by the [[spoiler:metal insects that make up Gort]]. The worst we see is a technician get a nosebleed and then fall over dead.
* GratuitousForeignLanguage: Mandarin Chinese. Keanu Reeves tries really hard, but still doesn't get it quite right.
* GreyGoo: How GORT was going to wipe out humanity.
* InferredHolocaust: Maybe. The period of time without electricity isn't specified. See its entry on the trope page.
* KnightTemplar: Klaatu
* LoweredMonsterDifficulty: for certain values of "monster"

A 1951 black and white science fiction movie based on the short story ''Farewell to the Master''. HumanAlien Klaatu lands on Earth, in Washington DC, in a classic [[FlyingSaucer flying saucer]] during the ColdWar era. The paranoid military shoots him, prompting his [[KillerRobot robot]] Gort to go on a rampage. Klaatu stops him. He informs the President that he has a message for all the world's leaders, but those leaders cannot agree on a meeting place. Klaatu then escapes to live among the people of Earth, learning of their penchant for war but also of their message of peace and understanding.

As a demonstration of power, he freezes everything mechanical in the entire world, save airplanes in flight and hospital electronics, for exactly half an hour (beginning at noon, Washington DC local time). (This is the event referred to in the title, although nobody calls it such within the story.) The military takes it as a sign of hostile intent, and responds by hunting Klaatu down and killing him. Shortly before they catch up with him, Klaatu gives one of his new-found human friends, a woman named Helen, a message to deliver to Gort in his own language: "[[KlaatuBaradaNikto Klaatu barada nikto]]." Gort re-activates and begins destroying the city, but Helen's message diverts him into retrieving Klaatu's body. Gort temporarily revives Klaatu, who informs the people of Earth that the robots like Gort were built to enforce peace in the galaxy, and if they bring their warlike ways into space, they will be destroyed. He leaves them with the words "the choice is yours" and departs.

This film has been [[TheRemake remade]] as the 2008 film ''The Day the Earth Stood Still''. The film's plot was copied in the extremely similar, yet hilarious, ''PlanNineFromOuterSpace''.

You can see the plot of the remake as recapped by a Bum in [[http://www.thatguywiththeglasses.com/videolinks/thatguywiththeglasses/bum-reviews/3104-the-day-the-earth-stood-still this video]] on [[ThatGuyWithTheGlasses Bum Reviews]].
