I loved that part too....... My only thing about a remake is this.... Can u imagine the uproar when this gets made? Russian and South/Central Americans invading the US..... There is going to be some backlash about the US being xenophobic..... I can see the headlines now.

Make the invaders zombies.

I love zombie movies, but that's not the essence of Red Dawn..... People would bitch that we aren't having enough dialogue with the undead!

I love the scene where they load up survival gear at the gas station before heading to the hills.

There wasn't much dialogue with the Cubans and Russians, either.  Anyway, with the advent (since the previous Red Dawn) of the Department of Homeland Security it's really hard to imagine the Russians/Cubans successfully invading.  There might be some border skirmishes but the invaders would be crushed.

More likely, Napolitano and company wouldn't be aware of the invasion until a month after it was completed.  ;)

lol  Don't get me started on her.  We have a personal connection.  There could be a scene in the movie, though, where she sees the error of her ways,fights the odds and engineers a rescue of concentration-camped, right-wing-extremist, former veterans to save us from the invasion.  I envision it as being sorta like that scene in the 3rd Lord of the Rings movie where they convince the ghosts to fight for them.

It's 11:59 on Radio Free America; this is Uncle Sam, with music, and the truth until dawn. Right now I've got a few words for some of our brothers and sisters in the occupied zone: "the chair is against the wall, the chair is against the wall", "john has a long mustache, john has a long mustache". It's twelve o'clock, American, another day closer to victory. And for all of you out there, on, or behind the line, this is your song.

Richard Harris made a movie in the 70's called "Man in the Wilderness". It's about a man who in on an Expedition in the American or Candian west, but is injured and left for dead by the people he is traveling with. He uses all kinds of survival methods to walk out back to civilization. A good movie that has lots to offer... 8)

Thanks to whoever suggested "The Snow Walker".  I watched it for free on Hulu with the wife and we both really enjoyed it (especially for free) It was also really cool that the wife was willing to watch it with me.  I showed her the trailer (which is way too long and reveals too much) and she went for it.

You have got to watch the DVD extras, almost as good as the movie.

Well, I am going to have to wait until I have a little more cash flow to pay for movies. LOL The commercials aren't that bad, but I do miss out on those features.  Also, I am now addicted to Survival School on Hulu, but I can't find Episode 8 (anywhere!).  Has anyone else found it? Hulu doesn't have it and neither does anyone else.

'24' season 2 had a survivalist guy in it (although it portrayed him as a nut.  Actually, every guy that wasn't an LEO or federal agent was portrayed as a freak.)

He had at least 4 long guns on a rack upstairs, but when he bugged out to his bomb shelter, he left the long guns on the rack.  He did have a couple of cots, lots of ammo, and some hand grenades which I thought was a little unrealistic.  He had a bunch of guns and ammo, but he was ready to spend years sleeping only on a military cot?  If he really planned that far ahead, you'd think he'd find something a little more comfortable.

Alone in The Wilderness was awesome I highly recommend it. The original Man Vs Wild and still very relevant

When the Wind Blows was pretty good too.  Funny Alex Jones mentioned the other day that maybe he should make cartoons to wake people up, because they were at such a child like state.  I think this movie does that.

That guy on 24 was an idiot and it was the usual case of the mainstream media demonizing our community.

How do you know that they aren't already here?  And with more coming in every day.
Fact is - we don't know who is coming in. Or how many.  Our "great" govenment is so hungry for the illegal vote, they are looking the other way. 
The invasion may have already started.   :o

(Probably already posted by someone else) Defiance was a great movie.  It was like Red Dawn, but based on a true story, and a lot more realistic.  I always wondered though why they never showed anyone trying to produce their own food.  They stole and foraged, but i didn't see any crops or animals. 

Did I miss something?

Yeah, just checked that one out this past weekend. I really enjoyed it. All those people that say civilians have no chance in a "Red Dawn" scenario against an army should watch it.

The Werner Herzog documentary "Little Dieter Needs to Fly" tells the story of Dieter Dengler, shot down over Laos early in the Vietnam war, his capture, torture, deprivations and eventual escape. His life is also the subject of a separate dramatic movie.
Early in the documentary (about 5 minutes in, available to stream from Netflix), Dieter is showing his present-day home, where he lifts an access panel to his crawl space where he has stored buckets... "1000 pounds of rice, 1000 pounds of wheat, 300 pounds of honey, etc.".
He says "I'll probably never need this, but I sleep so much better knowing it's there.". This is a man who, emaciated at his rescue, experienced real starvation.

I saw this before becoming active in my preparations, and it very much got the wheels turning for me...

all it takes is one victory over a basic patrol and you now have automatic weapons, explosives, food, and vehicles..... use those to get some more!
