it puts the red dawn remake in the theaters, it does this whenever it's told

Oh, man is it gonna be good! I can't wait!

Guardian Yoo-Kay:

The forthcoming remake of paranoiac Soviet invasion tale Red Dawn now has a director after Dan Bradley, who took charge of the second units on Spider-Man 3 and The Bourne Ultimatum, landed his first headline gig. The original centred on a group of high schoolers who fight back against perfidious Russian troops, and included a young(ish) Patrick Swayze in the cast. No word yet over whether the Russkies will still be the bad-guys, but the following quote from screenwriter Carl Ellsworth suggests otherwise. "The tone is going to be very intense, very much keeping in mind the post-9/11 world that we're in," he said. "As 'Red Dawn' scared the heck out of people in 1984, we feel that the world is kind of already filled with a lot of paranoia and unease, so why not scare the hell out of people again?" Probably the Iranians then ...

Oh yeah, the original Red Dawn scared a whole lot of people. Me, for example. Because when I saw it, I WAS TEN YEARS OLD.

Since we're obviously talking about outright fantasy here, why not go balls to the wall? Maybe, like the whole third and fourth acts could be the Wolverines teaming up with Iron Man, Optimus Prime, and the re-incarnated Spartans from 300 to fight Mexican Al Qaeda, the Iranians, Hugo Chavez, a cyborg Fidel Castro, the Code Pink protestors who show up at Senate hearings, and Cobra.

I laughed at Red Dawn then and I continue to laugh at Red Dawn. My brothers LOVED it.
