Another Hollywood remake

Postby Bri » Tue Aug 28, 2012 2:07 am

Although I must admit, if we're going to remake a movie... this one is a pretty damn awesome one to remake.



Updated the villains to be North Korea rather than the Soviets, of course, making it more topical. Plus, I could totally see this happening if we were to be invaded by another country; small groups banding together to fight back. We are the country of the Second Amendment, after all; I think whatever invading force there might be would have an extremely difficult time gaining control of all weaponry in the US.

I'm confused... Is this a remake or an old movie? the quality is really good.

It's a remake, Drea. Original was made back in the 80's, as I recall; Jennifer Grey and Patrick Swayze were both in it.

Here's the trailer for it in fact:



This one, like I said, switches the villains to be the North Koreans rather than the Soviets. Apparently it was originally the Chinese, but Hollywood thought better of offending millions of Chinese movie watchers and digitally inserted the North Korean flags and other symbols where they had to.

According to some people who I've talked to, this was actually shot some time ago; hence the younger looking Chris Hemsworth. It got bogged up in the studio's bankruptcy problems and is only now getting released; Cabin In The Woods had the same problem.

*LOL* Yep, first one was the new one (hence Chris Hemsworth and non-shitty cinematography).

So I trolled Netflix looking for something to watch, and lo and behold, the original Red Dawn can be found there!

Yes, I watched it. No, it's not even remotely plausible. Yes, it's an entertaining bit of film nonetheless. Ends on a slightly sour note, IMO, but overall entertaining. If you get a chance, check it out; especially if you plan to go see the remake.

Hmmm Red Dawn/ all righty. I think after the move, and getting the cable set up, again I'll add that one to the queue. Is it available on instant stream?

Yup, if by instant stream you mean adding it to your instant queue.
