    Red Dawn

    Red Dawn is a movie that young boys who grew up in the late 80's can relate to. I can remember seeing this movie and running outside with my friends and playing out every fighting sene. Yes, the movie is not the best in the world, but for a young boy this movie was (and still can be) great. It took a cold war topic and made teens heros of the American Cause. For a young kid at the time the movie came out this was all I needed. When this movie plays on TV I still set time aside to watch it as a 25 year old. This is a must see movie for any Boy (or Girl) that played Army as a kid.

    "No one will ever go home again"

    Althogh certainly not the most sophisticated of war movies, it still carries noble themes like friendship, fighting when you have to, and patriotism. Again, although this movie tended to be much like any Rambo machoistic film, it had a subtle message (suprisingly) anti-war. What does rankle an individual coming from this film is the fact you think our country could never be invaded, but there's a lingering doubt about that hopeful prospect. I found Swayze's and C. Thomas Howell's performances to be astonishingly accurate provided those situations. What I think all of us must remember about this film is that we could be invaded, maybe not Russian or Cuban Communists anymore, but by another insidious threat like an Iran, China or North Korea. Hypothetically speaking, anyway.
