Saw the commercials and previews, didn't know they were remaking it. Have watched the original more times than I can count. Not sure if looking forward to the remake at this point or not, but will surely see it at some time.

thanks for the info, took awhile to decide to release it I guess. Loved the original, hopefully the remake does it justice.

MGM(original production company) had financial issue and shelved it and a new company swooped in to release it

WHYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY

I agree 100% with this conclusion John. Yet another example of Hollywood film Studios incapable or unable to produce anything original anymore. Just cashing in on a remake for the millionth time. :facepalm:

For those looking forward to this new "Red Dawn" version, by all means enjoy it...1 question about the original plot though: How does Russia/the USSR get tanks & heavy machinery snuck into the US quietly without the State Dept., Secretary of Defense, Secretary of State, CIA, NSA, FBI, & Special Forces not knowing about it exactly? The Kremlin approved this military invasion of a sovereign foreign nation? I don't think so... :loco:

How would a rogue government or sleeper splinter cell transport weapons & fuel through US Customs to pull off such a cloak & dagger invasion anyway? Let alone feed all those troopers to operate the tanks & other weapons?

Why can't they leave the original movies alone? As I did saw the remake of Footloose though!

I completely agree with you JPPT, but these same movie studios are banking on the fact that the consumer will break down & buy a ticket because your compulsion to compare & contrast the original film from the new remake will be too hard for a an interested person's curiosity to ignore. I have the same dilemma with new George Lucas Star Wars movies myself. Don't be too hard on yourself JPPT; it happens to all of us.

The funny story behind this movie was that it was originally filmed as the Chinese invading the US, but they decided to change that because they did not think it would play well over in China. So they changed it to the North Koreans invading us. I mean seriously North Korea invading a country of 300 million where most of us have guns? HA.

This movie looks like a fun action flick and only worth a rental or a watch on Netflix when it comes out.

    • I know it depends on how he plays. And I think he is going to play awfully.. but we will see.
    • I think it had to do with the fact that any little injury has to be on the report with one of the designations. so it was a way of basically saying it's something minor but he will play. It was supposed to give a better picture as to the availability of a player. I can see Teams like the Patriots using "questionable" like they used probable in previous years. Now every week Gronk and Brady will be listed as questionable. Seems infuriating for fantasy football,  as well as for Teams trying to cater gameplans around certain players. 
    • I just like the Rod Woodson school of reporting/approach I guess where you are confident in your experience, do your own thing, don't let other personalties manipulate your POV, & you basically ignore all the twitter social media crap out there. I hope Wayne follows this model of broadcasting protocol & JJ Watt too when he's done playing ferocious, pass rusher too.    Yeah I know, Mr. 99 reasons is on Twitter & FaceBook, which is alright since he always handles himself the right way. Keep plugging away at rehab JJ. Love ya man! The league ain't the same without ya...Heal fast okay? Just kidding! 
    • Robinson is really an unknown commodity at this point. No one knows if he was pushing for a payday last yr or if he actually just hit his stride in the NFL. It also could just be that he needed a better supporting cast than he had in New Orleans (it's not like they areknown for their defense).    But all things considered,  I suppose this is similar to what Washington did with Josh Norman,  as he really only had 1, maybe 1.5 good seasons in Carolina.  Only difference is our cap hit is much lower and Robinsons ceiling isn't quite as high. If they have reason to be optimistic about it so do we.    Also I'm not sure i trust grigson signing offensive line depth. He hasn't managed to get a good free agent lineman yet. But I guess even a broken clock has to be right twice a day. Probably wouldn't have hurt to bring someone in on a small contract. 
    • I get what you're saying RTB & to be frank, there's nothing I'd love to see more then to have Reggie rip Deion Sanders a new one since his condescending smugness always rubs me the wrong way & royally ticks me off. I just deplore his over the top bravado. I find this quality charming in Rex Ryan but I wanna smack #21 hard every time his belittling comments rear their ugly head. Marshall Faulk is much more fair & balanced than Deion ever is.    The one I always have a crisis of conscious over is analyst Shaun O'Hara because I love the NY Giants lineman because he's very funny & great at breaking down plays, but he always slams the Colts line on TV for as long as I can remember. He's not malicious; I just don't think our o-line is as horrific as he likes to claim that it is on a frequent basis.    Getting back to Wayne, I agree you should never forget where you came from & a bias for the Colts is fine as long as Reggie can admit what our true vulnerabilities are because you never get better as a team burying your head in the sand pretending your weaknesses don't exist. Reggie knows this.
