    The makers of the remake of the film Red Dawn (this time, the commies are Chinese) have been plastering the location where the movie is being shot with propaganda posters put out by the Chinese occupiers in the film.

    Doug Powers has spotted eerie similarities between the Chi-Com propaganda posters and, um, certain campaign themes. Can you spot the similarities?

    Here's the synopsis if you're interested.

    I am very wary of it, because I loved the original. But the synopsis sounds good and I might give it a chance. I will wait for the critics review (I know that makes me scum, but on war movies I have found the critics do a good job).

    I still think it should have been real post-9/11 with an Islamic Dawn, meaning it should have been an alliance of Muslim Countries invading the West. Starting off with a nuclear attack.

    Is there a movie from the 1980s that they haven't remade yet?

    They are remaking that POS movie?

    Why?

    The first one sucked badly enough.

    Good point. Though I re-watched the first one the other day.

    Brilliant.

    IMO, bringing Heather Graham into any movie is a recipe for disaster.

    They really need to stop with the remakes though. Goodness knows a original thought for a movie isn't that difficult.
