Red Dawn (1984) – Filmsack Show Notes


Oh hi,

Listen up my young parachuting Comrades. We will be dropping you off in Colorado onto a mostly unoccupied field. Worst case scenario…the wind blows you to the parking lot of the local school where we are told that we could encounter some very light resistance. If that does happen….please do not shoot kids in the face who are simply looking out the windows of the school house. Remember, we are the good guys here.

Any questions? Yes, Ivan? “What do we do if some of the Jocks escape in a truck and head to the hills and create a troop of guerrilla fighters that force our hand to kill locals as retributions and as a result create a vicious cycle of revenge that never ends.” Ok Ivan, that is some serious foreshadowing. Just remember, we are the good guys here.

Yes Ernesto you have a followup? Will we meet any Young American Ladies that we can rape and pillage? Would someone please push Ernesto out of the plane. Thank you. But to answer his question. Just remember, we are the good guys here…so if you do rape and pillage be sure to wear a condom.

Ok…you know what….I think we may be the bad guys…so just forget all that stuff I said earlier….Let’s just go be bad guys!
