The Ultimatum of Klaatu - This is a tribute to a very old movie, but one of the best sci-fi films of all time. I´m talking about "The Day the Earth Stood Still" (1951).
Few years before this movie, the modern age of the UFOs (1947) began, so I guess, at that time this film could be absolute amazing and disturbing, the story of an extraterrestrial (even messianic) called Klatu and his giant robot Gort, that comes to the Earth to bring us a message of peace and an ultimatum too!
