Another Remake? Are you Serious?

Tuesday, October 20, 2009
Some idiot has decided to remake 1984's Red Dawn. You remember Red Dawn? It starred Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson, C. Thomas Howell, Jennifer Grey (pre-nose job) and Harry Dean Stanton - Cold War era flick where our dreaded "enemies" the Russians (and some of their allies) launch a sneak invasion of the United States and the last line of resistance is a group of teenagers who go guerilla out in the woods. It was a pretty darned good flick.

But now, because no one has an original thought anymore, first time director Dan Bradley has decided that he needs to redo this film. Except this time around, since the Russians are our buddies, he needs a new enemy. Don't worry, it's not terrorists. No, he's taking on the dreaded Chinese.

I hope this movie is crap and most younger movie goers will instead chose to watch the original. Excuse me, I'm going to go throw up...and then I'm going to rent the first Red Dawn and relive some old memories before they're overshadowed by the pathetic remake this is sure to be.

I would not go and see this. The original rocked.
