    I thought it was alright, little irritated that they made it the NorKs instead of the chinese (Box office reasons) and the little brother actor was terrible. But, the original Red Dawn wasn't exactly Shakespeare.

    Wife and I watched it Friday night. We were both disappointed in the remake. Terrible ending....

    Did any of you actually watch it thinking it would be good, or was it more curiosity to see what they could do with a reboot?

    I agree with that philosophy for different reasons. Most remakes are complete bowel evacuations. Not worth the time.

    Hollywood simply cannot make decent, fun movies anymore. No creativity at all. So they resort to lame remakes and reboots; just sad. I haven't been to a theater in over a year and a half now. Was going to see Die Hard 5? since Bruce is pro-gun, but was warned that was an awful POS also.

    They try to compensate for the lack of vision with spinning cameras, CGI and flashing lights, but that gets old really fast.

    A buddy of mine demonstrated this to me by playing the original True Grit vs the new one. No comparison. The old movie was ART. The characters were defined, the landscapes and music were beautiful. The actors were MEN.

    Kind of falls in line with the Idiocracy thing - that mankind as a species is de-evolving - and we are ...

    had they not spent all that time and money having to remake the movie after it was done because the Chinese made them replace the bad guys with N. Koreans it might have been better. I thought it was terrible.

    The movie is horrible, but at least it's one more reason to put a warhead in the forehead of Kim Dong None (or whatever he calls himself). The only reason they don't invade the south is that as soon as the troops saw what life could be like without a Suprthey would turn around and start firing the other direction.

    As an example of a remake that was absolute propaganda, One of my favorite old TV series was The Wild Wild West. The movie featuring Will Smith as James West made me puke, and I never even saw the movie! :rolleyes:

    :thumbup: I once read that the big money goes to marketable 'stars', special effects and the Hollywood-tax-avoiding black hole and it's the writers budget that gets cut. Good writing is the very thing I watch movies for. Yeah, they don't get much of my money either.

    I'll watch it just because I love the original.

    Can't wait for the remake of Bio-Dome however! :bluelaugh:
