    Exclusive: Joseph Farah warns of 'Red Dawn' scenario becoming real-life catastrophe Have you seen “Red Dawn”? I don’t mean the old movie starring the late Patrick Swayze. It was good. But I’m talking about the more recent version. I hesitated watching it for a long time, mainly because I thought the producers of the movie sold out when they opted to substitute a North Korean invasion of the U.S. for what was originally planned as a more likely Chinese invasion. Supposedly they did so because the Chinese movie market was too lucrative to pass up. But, having seen it recently,...

    It’s difficult to not look at world events these days and feel as though we are sitting on a ticking time bomb.

That is by design and has been planned on for a very long time.

    To live in New York is to be surrounded by people suffering from various pathologies, many of whom you encounter on a daily basis if-like most of us-you use public transportation. Living here also means being surrounded by Marxists of varying hues, including Maoists, Trotskyites, and-as the photograph above illustrates, supporters of the Democratic People’s Republic of Korea. Most of the time, international supporters of the only communist hereditary dictatorship fly under the radar. Outside of the faltering consortium of ethnic Koreans living in Japan-whose own stability has been imperiled for obvious reasons-there are not many people willing to support...

    Out of curiosity, I took a look at how film critics from other newspapers and publications reviewed the new “Red Dawn,” a remake of the 1984 cult classic about teenagers taking up guns and defending America from communist invaders. You’d think from the critics’ condescending sneers that the remake is utter garbage. “Preposterous,” said one critic of the remake’s premise that North Korea could invade the U.S. today. “Outdated,” said another, suggesting the plot line be relegated to the ancient Cold War and the once-upon-a-time Red Scare. The only thing that’s “preposterous,” however, is the speed at which these obviously...

During the first two minutes of the film, the story flashed many current events showing how the world was collapsing. One of the flash images was the current _Resident of the White House speaking about cyber-threats. One of the youths in the audience at the sight of Dear Leader squealed out, "Obamaaaaa!!"

    In the upcoming remake of the movie Red Dawn, the United States is invaded by North Korea. But it wouldn't have happened without Michigan taxpayers.

Now Michigan residents will get a chance to see what they paid for. After it was shot, it was widely reported that the filmmakers changed the enemy to North Korea for fear that having China as the villain again would hurt sales in...

    ASTANA, Kazakhstan - Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad called Wednesday for a security alliance of several former Soviet nations and China to form a united front against the West. Ahmadinejad's address to fellow heads of state at the summit of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization in Kazakhstan will likely deepen suspicions that the bloc is intended as a counterweight to the United States across the region. In a summit declaration signed by all the member states, the organization also attacked missile defense programs in another apparent dig at the United States.

    “One of the most dangerous plots ever instigated for the overthrow of this Government has its headquarters in Hollywood.” The year was 1945. The speaker was Rep. John E. Rankin (D-Mississippi). The forum was the House Un-American Activities Committee. Rankin was a racist, a bigot, and an overall nasty fellow. On this, however, he was absolutely right. The only problem is that he was 70 years too early. Of course, he was somewhat right when he spoke the words, too. Ronald Reagan was head of the Screen Actors Guild from 1947-1952, and again in 1959-1960. During that time, he watched...

    "Red Dawn" was one of the definitive films of the 80s. In the film, American teens fight off a Russian invasion. Hollywood has decided to remake "Red Dawn", but times have changed. The enemy is no longer the Soviet Union, but China. In the movie, the mighty Chinese army invades a small town in the US. The only ones who could stop them are a group of plucky high-school students. But when they considered the Chinese box office, the execs got cold feet and changed the baddies from Chinese to North Koreans digitally in post-production.

    "Hollywood remake of Red Dawn spends $1m to change villains from Chinese to North Koreans... so as not to offend Beijing" Hollywood film-makers have changed the villains in a re-make of the film Red Dawn to avoid offending China and spoiling its chances of success at the box office. The original action film starring Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen featured Russian troops invading America. In the remake Chinese troops lead the invasion - but bosses at MGM studio are to spend more than $1 million on digital special effects to make it appear the invaders are from North Korea.

    Merrick here... When John Milius made RED DAWN back in 1984, he showed us an America occupied by dastardly Soviet forces. Dan Bradley's current remake of the film, however, has shifted the picture's focus to a Chinese invasion (a vaguely reasonable move given that the Soviets are no longer the "villains" du jour). Well, whether or not China ever could, or would, think to overrun the United States has now been rendered irrelevant - because the invading forces in the Dan Bradley-directed rehash are being transformed into Koreans via digital trickery and other slight-of-hand tweaks. ...potential distributors are nervous about...

    Without Beijing even uttering a critical word, MGM is changing the villains in its 'Red Dawn' remake from Chinese to North Korean. It's all about maintaining access to the Asian superpower's lucrative box office. has become such an important market for U.S. entertainment companies that one studio has taken the extraordinary step of digitally altering a film to excise bad guys from the Communist nation lest the leadership in Beijing be offended.

    The upcoming war film directed by Dan Bradley is based on the 1984 film of the same name, which starred Patrick Swayze as the leader of the "Wolverines." The storyline is simple: A group of teenagers look to save their town from an invasion of foreign soldiers by taking refuge in the woods and going on the offensive. Actors Chris Hemsworth and Josh Peck will portray the brothers Jed and Matt Eckert, roles originally played by Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen. Unlike the 1984 film which pitted the teens against the Russians, the new band of "Wolverines" (the nickname the...

    Don't expect to see the Detroit-filmed "Red Dawn" remake on the big screen anytime soon. Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer filed for bankruptcy earlier this month, confirming reports the struggling company will be unable to release the film in the near future despite an original release date of Nov. 24. While that may be a disappointment for Metro Detroiters hoping to spot local locations, it should come as good news to some in China who fear the film could spur anti-Chinese sentiment. The remake largely follows the Soviet-invasion plot of the original 1984 film starring Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen, except this time around...

    The film was a classic piece of 1980s teen cinema framed against the paranoid geopolitics of the cold war. Red Dawn starred Patrick Swayze and Charlie Sheen as all-American teens leading an armed resistance movement against Soviet troops who had invaded the US. Feeding on Hollywood's recent appetite for recycling old films, Red Dawn is being remade with a handsome new cast. But there is one vital difference: this time the invading communist army that takes over America is Chinese. The new-look enemy reflects the changes that have swept the world since the fall of the Berlin Wall. First, the...

    Well this should not be a surprise to anyone but Red Dawn is the latest film to be put on hold due to MGM’s financial status. With no executives to control the studio, creditors have placed the responsibility of the once great film company on themselves. This move has affected all the movies it was tied to, from the twenty-third Bond film to The Hobbit. Because of MGM’s financial problems Daniel Craig left Bond 23 for Girl with a Dragon Tatoo and Gullimero Del Toro left The Hobbit.

  • U.S. Eyes Bank Pay Overhaul

    WASHINGTON -- The Obama administration has begun serious talks about how it can change compensation practices across the financial-services industry, including at companies that did not receive federal bailout money, according to people familiar with the matter. The initiative, which is in its early stages, is part of an ambitious and likely controversial effort to broadly address the way financial companies pay employees and executives, including an attempt to more closely align pay with long-term performance. Administration and regulatory officials are looking at various options, including using the Federal Reserve's supervisory powers, the power of the Securities and Exchange Commission...

    This is one of those things that makes you feel old. Some movie publicists tell me that Thursday is the 25th anniversary of an important movie, "Red Dawn," which depicts a Soviet Communist invasion of America and a band of American teens--the "Wolverines"--who heroically fight them off. (IMDB differs and says it was released on August 10, 1984, so I'll repost on this, again, then.) American Cinemathique sent me word that the organization will be marking "Red Dawn's" 25th anniversary with a special showing and discussion at the historic, restored Aero Theatre in Santa Monica, on Thursday Night at 7:30...

    Wolverine!!! Come on, who didn’t leave the theaters screaming the famous line from John Milius’s 1984 movie “Red Dawn”? Okay, not all of us. I was too young to have seen the movie in theaters and saw the film only later on DVD. Er, I mean, VHS. You remember them, right? Those box-looking rectangle thingies with, you know, film and junk? Anyways, they’re rebooting “Red Dawn” for a new generation. So what can we expect? Latino Review has gotten their hands on the script by Carl Ellsworth (”Red Eye”). You can watch the full script review for yourself, and I...

    I'm trying to find information on an experiment that took place in the 50s that experimented on communism. I think it took place in Wisconsin and what happened was this town adopted communism. I saw some news reels of it somewhere, there were soup lines, presses being shut down by mobs etc. I think it would make a good article for my blog.

"Patrick knew it was coming because he was suffering increased weakness. "At times, he was so weak that he could barely walk without feeling...
