Coming soon: A remake of Red Dawn:
A $75 million movie from MGM about a Chinese communist invasion of the United States. A brazenly patriotic smack-down of Obama-era socialism. Centering around an Afghanistan war vet. Starring Tom Cruise’s son. Featuring music by Toby Keith. With a plot devised with help from the RAND Corporation.

So, while, it is basically impossible for the new version to be worse, I ask this of the producers: If you’re going to get political, please don’t be stupid like Avatar. I don’t want to be embarrassed.
