The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951)

He comes in peace.

Unless you tick him off, and then maybe, just maybe, he might have his killer robot zap all of you lil’ twerps just to teach you a lesson.

Michael Rennis is a stoic alien invader traveling the galaxy with one mission — keep the warring factions on Earth at the height of the Cold War from ever thinking about taking their new nuclear power up, up, and away to space.

To do so would unleash a firestorm the humans couldn’t possibly win, he warns them.

Thoughtful sci-fi with a message — more Star Trek than Star Wars.
