Red Dawn remake

If all this Red Army propaganda makes you nervous you will be happy to know the 1984 John Milius movie Red Dawn is being remade. Instead of depicting a Soviet takeover like the original with Patrick Swayze it now has the Chinese coming to invade the land of the free. Wiki here.
The original as far as I was concerned was a must-see piece of schlock with some great performances like Harry Dean Stanton 'Avenge me!' and Powers Booth - a kind of ultimate 80s trashfest - can the new one live up to that? My advice? Get hold of the original.
