x20 RED DAWN (10/16/97)
MORNING HAS BROKEN...AND
IT'S THEIR FAULT
Directed by John "Whimper" Milius
Written by John "MooOOM" Milius and Kevin "Wrap" Reynolds
Sangre de Pilon
If I were an evil overlord...I certainly wouldn't be looking to take over
a small brat-infested town in Colorado, but nobody asked me. This movie
was kewl when were 10, but it didn't outlast the red paranoia of the
Reagan Era. Could Swayze be the reason? Could it be the deer blood
drinking? Maybe it's Jennifer Grey and her incredible performing sucking
chest wound. Nah, she gets blown up. That's a highlight if I ever saw
one. The real tragedy here is that Lea Thompson lives to make Caroline in
the City. Oh, and the rest of the world outside this town is still
presumably occupied by a tantalizing mix of Cubans and Russkies.
