'The Day the Earth Stood Still' to be transmitted into Space

So FOX has come up with a publicity stunt to transmit their new release, “The Day the Earth Stood Still” into space. The plot of the movie is that we are destroying the planet and an alien arrives to save the planet from us, by wiping out the human race!

Does anyone besides me think that beaming a movie like this out into space is not really a good idea? Do we really want to give anyone “out there” any ideas?

Perhaps we should start with something a little more up beat - like a “Benji,” movie or perhaps an old Don Knotts flick. Even the comedy “The Great Outdoors” with John Candy would leave a much better impression.

So if you were going to transmit a movie into outer space with the hope that a much more advanced alien race would see it, and think good, positive things about us, which movie would you pick?

How about the "Wizard of OZ?" One look at those Flying Monkeys and that should keep them away.

I vote for "Mama Mia." Who doesn't love ABBA?

Don't answer that question!

We might as well show them how we hope to be supported by ailen forces, so I vote for the animated flick, "The Iron Giant."

My choice is "Armageddon." That way things won't seem that bad!
