What Were They Thinking? – Red Dawn (1984)

Written by on July 4, 2019

Summer Flopbuster season begins with a very special patriotic episode on this most patriotic of days for our American brethren – July the 4th!

Nathan and Brendan celebrate a holiday that doesn’t exist in their own home country by talking all about 1984’s Red Dawn. Discussions range from the director making everyone refer to him as “The General” to the film’s status as an unofficial “Brat Pack” movie to “AVENGE MEEEEEEEEE!” Fireworks! Commies! Baseball! ‘Murica!

Next week: The guys drop a hint for their next movie. Check in on our Twitter account on Monday for the movie reveal!
