Red Dawn for the Defense/Natsec Wonk Crowd (Because You’re Curious)

I have seen Red Dawn. I have sacrificed $10.75 and two hours of my life to this … movie.

The Question on Everyone’s Mind, Especially the Defense/Natsec Crowd, is … 

“How bad is Red Dawn?”

It is unfair to ask how a country such as North Korea, with a GDP smaller than North Dakota, could invade the United States. That’s the wrong question.

The real question is, “Can you handle Red Dawn?”

Well, can you? Do you think the first three Star Wars movies were actually good? Can you imagine a world where green means stop and red means go, nobody went to jail for the financial crisis and strawberries make for very good reading? Can you not just surrender belief, but literally sit in your seat and forget about everything you know, save that you must not void your bowels? Then you can totally handle Red Dawn.

    Wow. If the Red Dawn remake is that bad I’ll definitely skip seeing it in theaters. I’m a little curious about the original though. I heard it’s a cult classic, and I think I’ll try to check it out sometime this weekend. It’s available from DISH Online, which has thousands of movies that will stream to my computer, so I’ll be able to watch it whenever it’s convenient for me. That will be helpful since I work odd hours at DISH and have a hard time catching whole movies on TV. If I like the original then I’ll consider seeing the remake when it becomes available from Red Box, although from what you’ve said it probably isn’t worth it.
