Posted on 11/02/2009 5:25:38 AM PST by B-Chan
Over the fire I chatted with a neighbor whos working on the Red Dawn remake. Get this: in the new version, China and Russia invade the US to put a stop to our greed. There are times you wish you had a mouthful of kerosene so you could do a flaming spit take. If this is how the film turns out, itll be hilarious; its as if the filmmakers were a bit ambivalent about all the horrible jingoism that such a film might unleash, so they had to temper it with a bit of theoretical altruism that could be true, you know, in a sense. I almost expect the Russians and Chinese to invade to enforce Copenhagen protocols, and the brave Americans fight back for a modified rollout of carbon emission standards that will allow domestic industry to perfect the new HydroWind Energy System, which the Chinese dont want because they just signed a UN agreement to respect patents of other countries.
I feared as much...
It was a stupid movie the first time around, and most remakes are worse than the original. Hollywood never changes.
Nominated for the best written sentence of 2009.
Then these idiots will be shocked, just SHOCKED, when the movie flops...
Just curious: How old are you?
All things in time anon.
My suggestion: a U.N. group of lefties sends in “peacekeeping” force in order to rescue a far left president who has just been voted out of office and doesn’t want to leave...
You forgot to use the word "unexpectedly" in that comment.
Yeah China and Russia, two countries with a history of being altruistic.
Unfortunately, how many stupid “social studies” teachers will show this in school for classroom discussion of the evils of American capitalism?
Well, Chinese tanks sure did cut down those carbon emitters in Tiananmen Square, didn’t they?
it was a stupid movie. and i’m 46.
No accounting for taste.
most movies are fiction...this may be all out propaganda
Is Howard Dean producing this meaningless dreck?
Fine. You were around then.
I don't agree with you, though.
In a remake of ‘The Patriot’ lead actor Sean Penn fights the British who are trying to defend native americans from the evil colonials.
In a remake of ‘Bridge on the River Kwai’ a captured group of British prisoners are forced to help the industrial-power of the Japanese to destroy the rainforest. A small group of commandos, led by Ted Danson, foil their plans, thus saving the world of 1942 from global warming.
The Neo-Soviets, Chinese, and Latin American Commies are going to scream and howl and pout when this film comes out.
BTW this is their end goal, to defeat the US.
