I would say that it hasn't really had an impact on how I view government. More than likely, it has impacted how I think about "the worst case scenerio".

I've never seen it. I saw heat for the first time this year. It's amazing the amount of popularly referenced movies I've never seen. Oh yeah, never saw any of the Dawn of the Dead ones either. I've only seen a COUPLE Clint Eastwood spaghetti westerns, but I intend to remedy that this weekend!

Red Dawn is most certainly the quintessential ARFCOM fantasy.

Right down to the "Here, take my daughters from the floorboards" scene.
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 9:23:38 PM EDT
My views were well formed long before "Red Dawn". I also didn't think it a very good movie.

Insignificant.

Development of my views? Completely insignificant. My views were held before I first saw the movie, and I'm not exactly the type to define my worldview by a Patrick Swayze/Charlie Sheen movie.

It's an implausible work of fiction, a 2 hour escape from reality.

Frankly, I base more of my life around "Showgirls". Well, at least 5 minutes of bathroom time each day.

I can't believe grown men even contemplate this shit.

Wow what a question. . . Let's see, what year was Red Dawn released?
I'd really have to think about this one for a minute or two. I think my outlook really changed after my father made my watch this movie ~

"The Day After, a dramatization of the effects of a hypothetical nuclear attack on the United States was one of the biggest media events of the 1980s. Programmed by ABC on Sunday, 20 November 1983, The Day After was watched by an estimated half the adult population, the largest audience for a made-for-TV movie to that time. The movie was broadcast after weeks of advance publicity, fueled by White House nervousness about its anti-nuclear "bias". ABC had distributed a half-million "viewer's guides" and discussion groups were organized around the country. A studio discussion, in which Secretary of State took part, was conducted following the program. The advance publicity was unprecedented in scale. It centered on the slogan "THE DAY AFTER--Beyond Imagining. The starkly realistic drama of nuclear confrontation and its devastating effect on a group of average American citizens..."

Who remembers that movie?

I saw Red Dawn later down the road I think.
I was still pretty young, and by then I was already scared to death of Russia, & the thought of nuclear war, or any kind of war for that matter.
But after seeing Red Dawn, I was like, "hell yeah, come fuck with us will ya. . .

WOLVERINES!




Anyway, these two movies definitely had a significant impact on my sociopolitical outlook as a young man,
and I wouldn't make my kid watch either one of them unless they were old enough to understand the context entirely.

Red Dawn and The Day After are just two extra excuses we use to make buying more guns and ammo we don't really need seem more jutifiable.

Nothing wrong with that.

I prefer Adam Sandler myself. Really taps into my mentality.

hte only thing that would have made Red Dawn better is if the Wolverines had managed to find M4geries but since they weren't invented yet I could have handles some type of CAR
Link Posted: 8/10/2005 9:36:13 PM EDT
I didn't see it, that I remembered anyway, until my views were pretty much set.
but the movie didn't run against those views

I was in high school when I first watched it. Thought it was a cool movie and thought that Jennifer Gray and Ally Sheedy (sp?) were hot!

Now that Im pushing 40 I still think its a cool movie and I need to watch it again.

I also know that it's "only" a movie, but, do you think that could actually happen on the CONUS? Not being a smartass just trying to see if you guys think that a scenario like that could develope?

Some parts are good, some parts are eye candy.

How about the Cuban/Nicaraguans infilitrating as illegals onto US military bases? That's mentioned.

I know your joking around, but since they started with hunting rifles and then captured all their other gear, it makes sense to just use what your enemy uses, from a logistical sense.

Something like this could happen, in a sense, but it definitely wouldn't be like a movie. I think we'd be more likely to be fighting our own govt or at least some part of it, and we'd be getting our asses crushed with tanks and shit like that. After all, they can pull some serious shit resulting in a revolution, then the news just calls the revolutionaries "terrorists" or "militants" and the govt sends the National Guard to restore order. That's how it would look to mainstream America.

Red Dawn was significant for me in the fact that it opened my eyes to the stunning amount of denial in Liberals.
When ever subject of conversation turned to the movie, they either spouted incoherent hate or just when into a quite rage.

I was an extra in the movie, The Day After. It was shot in Lawrence, Kansas. I'm from a small town near there and was 10 years old at the time. I had to play dead and lay in a road ditch...covered in flour (to imitate lime sprinkled on the dead). I remember it like yesterday.

Leah Thompson was in it, not Ally.

I was also in my early teens when the movie showed (14-15) and the whole idea of playing in the woods and playing American mujhadeen against communist invaders (with Leah Thompson) was the ultimate fantasy.

I made 10.00 of a bet once. Someone was no sure it was ally sheedy....
