Today's an especially great day to be an American, as John Milius's masterpiece of '80s jingoism, Red Dawn, finally gets the Collector's Edition DVD treatment. Who better to stave off a massive Soviet invasion than Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen and C. Thomas Howell? Not to mention a pre-nosejob Jennifer Grey. The Reds never had a chance.
When it opened in 1984, Red Dawn held the dual distinctions of being the first PG-13 movie ever released and setting the Guinness World Record for the highest number of violent acts ever depicted in a film. Let's see the Commies top that.
Also out today on DVD: Sandra Bullock's supernatural thriller Premonition, Sienna Miller's Edie Sedgwick biopic Factory Girl, and the mutant redneck gorefest The Hills Have Eyes 2. Posted 07.17.07 by reelz
