Red Dawn 2012

This is a discussion on Red Dawn 2012 within the Off Topic & Humor Discussion forums, part of the The Back Porch category; I will see it, hoping it is as good as or better than the original. Cue the mission impossible theme....

    It was hard enough to suspend that much disbelief for the first one, when there was actually another super-power bent on destroying us. This, unfortunately, looks to be aimed straight at the "Transformers" crowd...and that ain't me. But, I will go in with an open mind, and reserve final judgement.

    A man fires a rifle for many years, and he goes to war. And afterward he turns the rifle in at the armory, and he believes he's finished with the rifle. But no matter what else he might do with his hands - love a woman, build a house, change his son's diaper - his hands remember the rifle.

    I'm pretty sure it will suck.....like all of the CGI movies do. Too many special effects and not enough acting and plot.

    This. The special effects, like the sound track, should be used to support and compliment the movie, not be the main attraction. Too many bad movies have come out in the past decade that were nothing more than a CGI extravaganza with nothing else to keep the viewer interested in watching a second or third time.

    I'll go see it, but my wife will probably make fun of me for it. And I probably will just take it.

    Of course not. It is cheaper and less risky to take a proven commodity and do it again. And the movie going public buys into it hook, line and sinker. So, the studios keep doing it. Same thing goes for covers of songs.

    Hmmmph. Still call them the Wolverines. A true update would call them the "Honey Badgers" 'cuz Honey Badgers don't care.

    Redbox... period. Hollywood is starting to go the way of rap artists. Nothing original, all copied off others work.

    I'll wait til it's available on Comcast "On Demand". Will probably be like 99% of remakes, give an "f" for originality and a "D-" for content.

    I am getting older and my body is broken, but I love feel-good movies that kicks the commies rear-end.
