I joined the earwolf forum for the sole purpose of suggesting the remake of Red Dawn. My friends and I went to see this movie because A. It was the worst rated movie we could find playing that weekend and B. The trailer had tons of explosions.
You HAVE to see this movie with friends. Be ready to laugh at the absolute shitstorm of bad script, terrible acting, and a sky full of North Korean paratroopers. I was belly laughing so hard at certain parts of this movie (That were not supposed to be funny) I was afraid I may be asked to leave the theater.
This movie is unbelievably stupid and somewhat offensive.. and at the same time is filled with fist pumping moments of awesomeness. Not awesome because the scene is good, but awesome because what you are witnessing even exists on film at all. For people to see. Josh Peck, who was great in The Wackness, turns in one of the most cringe-inducing performances I have ever seen captured at 24fps in this movie. Also: Skinny Thor.
I can think of no other movie where I said, "WHAT?!!!" out loud as many times as I did during this piece of beautiful garbage.
It's SO bad. I think I got more enjoyment out of this shitty movie than I did out of some of the actually very good films that came out last year. I would love to hear the HDTGM podcast tackle this gem.
