Looking forward to the Reese Witherspoon movie Wild [Nick Hornby screenplay - ed.]. But so much good to find back in Red Dawn too. Practically impossible, but not touching the politics of it with a barge pole; just digging the looks.
[reblog from 2010 - ed.] I saw Red Dawn at our rural 2-screener the week it came out. It was my first rated R (do the math kids). Actually was PG-13, a rating they invented for this movie. Think I told Pops we went to see Mary Poppins which was rescreening around that time, hah! Must have fibbed because it was deemed violent, though seems tame now. SEE, I'm desensitized by the experience! Long/short: playing soldiers in the woods and camping out with girls?? -what 13 y/o boy wouldn't like this movie.
Never forgot the radiator scene... also Charlie Sheen is shockingly good. Denim, mesh hats, old Northface padded jackets and bags, step up trucks, hiking boots, windbreakers and crunchy sweaters. WOlveRINessS.
