    An early attention seeker just like the one that said "Make America Great Again".

    It's about an alien ship landing on earth.

    If that happened everyone on earth would stop what they were doing.

    For the lack of a better title. The story is based on the book "Farewell to Master".

    I think that Michael Rene did a lot better job than Reeves.

  • The title was a reference to how time seems to stop, when confronted by the overwhelming.

    Great movie. Many a nerd memorized all 4 alien words used,

    because we thought it would impress girls.

    War Of The Worlds was an even greater comedy.

    ..that scene where one at a time, representatives of each 'philosophy' (the army, the church,

    the fonz..) haughtily declare "I'm the one to handle this!"...and they march towards

    the alien craft without fear, so it disintegrates them. ZOT! Brilliant!

    ...Where can I get such a weapon?

    Because time seems to stand still while you are watching the movie.
