Red Dawn

Posted by: Hammer / 2:24 PM

Watched Red Dawn Saturday night. It was a bit different than I remembered. Lots more crying. Lots more father figures telling son child figures to never cry again. If only that advice had been listened too...

We watched Red Dawn because it is, apparently, a totem of the right. Whether that's true or now, I don't know. Maybe it's something Ben Domenech knew for a fact; maybe it's something he copied from somewhere else; maybe it's something he made up. Whichever it is, Ben himself is no longer available for kicking around.

He now does children's parties.

After enduring the nearly 2 hours of crying and blowing shit up, I am determined to make the following notes.

Still, stuff blows up and Swayze pulls faces like he's constantly having his nipples waxed. Good, family fun. And so deeply implausible that only a select group could rally around the film as a touchstone of modern conservatism.
