Default Red Dawn

I've heard that Hollywood is doing a remake of the cult classic "Red Dawn". If you liked that movie, I ran across a similarly themed Australian movie on Netflix tonight...

Tomorrow, When the War Began

http://www.imdb.com/title/tt1456941/

Check it out -- I actually thought it was pretty decent.

It looks like there is a sequel in the works for it as well.

I will check it out...

Another couple movies worth a look about "WWIII"

"On the Beach"

"The Bedford Incident"

Keep it in mind that both were made in the 50's and 60's when "acting" was a bit overdone and special effects were almost non-existant.

I also liked "Crimson Tide" with Denzel Washington and Gene Hackman. Again about the "cold war".

The Red Dawn remake has been in the works for years and is set for release in Nov. I loved this movie as a kid and I have no doubt Hollywood will s#!* all over it with this regurgitation.

I too loved this money as a kid. After seeing the preview in a theater a few weeks ago I'm really looking forward to this movie. I heard that it was originally supposed to be about the Chinesse but those commies got all pissy so they changed it to the North Koreans.

You're correct. I'm not sure of the reasons why, but they changed it from the Chinese to the North Koreans. I'll probaly go to see it out of curiosity, but this movie just seems to belong in its intended cold war time and shouldn't be remade. We really did fear a Russian attack back then, so the movie struck a nerve. I don't think kids today are losing sleep over North Korea. Just my opinion

Wolverines!!!!

I will check out the new one but I wont hold my breath that it will be as gut wrenching and powerful as the original. I'm not an old fart like all of you to know how real it could have been watching it during the hight of the Cold War but I'm not young/naive enough to not understand its implications. Changing the invaders from the Chinese to the Norks really hurts too. The Chinese would have been at least a believable threat.

Plus, John Milius is probably the most pro-gun guy in HollyWeirdo...
