Red Dawn, worst movie premise of the decade?


  • Liaison TripleA '11 '10

    Saw the movie last night…

    It was a bit “quick” like prometheus, but overall I enjoyed it, and felt it was worth the $10!

    Of course… that is because it’s my kind of movie…  I hope you all go into it with both eyes open, and just enjoy it for what it is!  The bad-guy commander Choi is a bad ass!

    @Gargantua:

    …like prometheus…

    Well the probability of me seeing this movie just went down from 0.01 to 0.0001.

    Seeing Prometheus was like getting into bed with a supermodel and then having her barf all over your dick.

    Seeing Red Dawn seems like a similar scenario, except instead of a super-model, it’s the ugly girl you slept with once in high-school, 20 years and 2 kids later.

    ick.

    Canuck, nice work on the quote!  So they still used humans as a sort of perpetual motion machine for electricity but also used a form of fusion….  Not sure if that is any better, if they had fusion, why use humans as batteries aka perpetual motion machines?

    This got me thinking so I did some google searches and came across this site:

    http://matrix.wikia.com/wiki/Real_World

    I guess the form of cold fusion takes place inside the human body according to that site, that seems to explain some things… But fusion only able to occur inside human bodies…weak.

    Hahaha yeah I thought about that too. If they had discovered fusion did they really need the people?

    Saying that the machines are powered by human cellular respiration and a form of fusion is kind of like saying cars are powered by human cellular respiration and a form of internal combustion. Because you need the human to push the gas pedal!  :lol:



  • Red dawn Was Good! And it wasnt just N koreans, they were with Russians! Well, there was spetznaz with them, but Russia invaded the east coast. Worth the money, if you havent seen it you should.

    Quick - that’s how.

    People go from standing on the street with guns, to in their hide-out having dinner - to inside a communist compound doing surveillance in about an 8 second window.

    The transitioning is terrible… Prometheus was the same way, everything was good, and then BAM BAM BAM all these chopped up clips and the movies over…

    I really wanted to like it but it was so compressed, I think the best scene is when that CGI plane blows up in the sky during the invasion. Was there a drop of blood in the whole movie that wasn’t from the deer? Not that I’m blood thirsty but this was a war movie.

    This version will never be as good as MY Red Dawn back in the 80’s. The most dissapointing thing was waiting the 2 years when they were about to release it and followiing it on YouTube with bootleg footage and the fake trailers…humpf…I feel cheated. But, I found a blu ray copy of the original and it came with $7.50 off the price of a ticket so it only cost me $2.50 to watch so there Helmsworth! Put that towards your Malibu condo dude!

    All true Red Dawn fans know this fact, It was the first ever rated PG-13 movie. In todays rating world, the orginal might have been rated R while this new version should have been Rated G.

    Thanks for letting me vent fellas.
