Yeah, I won't hold my breath waiting on that. My own prediction: the "invaders" turn out to be patsies for the *real* evil, the corporate-government cabal lead by either the vice-president or a high-ranking general, who wants to push the U.S. into implementing a fascistic/nazist style of government....

I would bet this will portray the “patriotic kids” being leftist at the start.. The kind who are bullied by football players and cheerleaders. At the surface everything is a veneer although the surface is a clue i.e. if it looks like something a conservative parent thinks is good, it’s evil. If it’s something parents disapprove of, it’s good. The review site Plugged In describes one of Carl Ellsworth’s previous films (Disturbia) that way,

“it wants cloistered young people—isolated from true community by the pseudo-interaction of text messaging and online video games—to feel less secure in pristine neighborhoods full of secretive strangers trying to fool everyone with their well-manicured yards. They’re phony people with hidden agendas and empty lives. At least that’s the cynical perspective of LaBeouf’s brooding, restless teen.”

Middle America secedes from the socialist coasts, form a free counrty, and try to live in peace and freedom. The commie east and west coasts get the UN to invade, then Nuke middle America with North Korean and Iranian missles. Middle America is a glass parking lot. President Nancy Pelosi declares victory over the Rogue terrorist country of Middle America.

The End

"The heroes will probably be a couple of guys who turn out falling in love and having a homosexual relationship."

And the title will be altered slightly to, "The Crack of Dawn."

Someone else already said it, but I can't imagine hollyweird portraying heterosexual white male christian gun loving Americans in a heroes role. There will be the stock wise black man who will be smarter than anyone else, but who probably won't be the main character. I'm still going with gay cowboys as the leading characters with their discovering their sexuality as a main subplot

Most of the Christians I knew at the time did not believe it would be anything dramatic.

Some of us even then and many since view Y2K as a deliberate dry run of The Lord’s engineering to help wake folks up and get them to prepare somewhat for coming traumas.

And, then there are some Christian computer experts who have asserted that if it were not for thousands of hours of corrective efforts . . . on the part of many computer professionals, it could have been a LOT messier.

But, hey, whistling Dixie is a past time of many folks . . .

Even Freepers.

Why? You mean a couple high school kids with AKs couldn’t ambush and defeat the Soviet Army?


Hmmmm...seems the 1980's Soviet Army was 'held up' initially by rag tag groups of Afghanis. Later, through increased 'troops'/arms/training...the Soviet acquiesed the 'field'.

I think Pat has fallen off a cliff somewhere.

Hitler was an eager tool of the globalists even back then.

He was far from misunderstood.

Churchill is an interesting figure vis a vis globalism. Evidently, according to more than a few sources . . . he was not out of the loop.

Who wants to bet that the plot goes like this:

“The villain turns out to be a Cheney-esque ‘white guy’ in the American government that ends up having secretly plotted with the ‘obvious’ bad guys - probably the Chinese - to bring down the American government so that he can take over all the oil fields in the West.”

Now, who do I bill for developing a treatment from this synopsis?

Goldman was right, no one in Hollywood knows anything. Leftist hack idiots all.

Well, the title is “Red Dawn” - you know, “Red” - so I don’t see how they can get away from that. See my previous post. They’ll use the “Red” angle, probably the Chinese, but they’ll make sure that it’s really a “conspiracy within a conspiracy” and that the “real” villain is some Cheney-esque “white guy” who wants to dominate the United States oil market or something equally ridiculous. Trust me, this will be a complete left-wing hack job.

“Nor, evidently, have you talked to Marine trainers who’ve questioned our military personnel about whether they would be willing to shoot their own relatives on command in this country.”

No, but I’ve read about the questionnaire that was supposedly given to the military several years ago on that very question. I also didn’t know about the KGB personnel being trained by our military. I do know about the two ex-KGB generals that were hired by Homeland Security several years ago, one of them being anex-STASI General named Wolfe.

The bad guy is a bad guy. He’s a serial killer. He gets women drunk and kills them. There are very few adults in the movie for any length of time, except for the killer and Shia’s mom. The kids are pretty typical teenagers (but I thought the girl was uber annoying) and the whole movie is generally a typical teen movie. It’s not horrible, but I was glad I didn’t spend $8.50 to see it either. If you have HBO, it’s on this month.

IMO, someone would have to be looking extremely hard at that movie to see it as making a mockery of morality.
