A Bad Case Of Remakeitis.
Hollywood's lazy remake habit is bad enough, but you really have to wonder what they're thinking with some of them. There's a remake of Red Dawn currently in production. The original starred the late Patrick Swayze as a member of a group of teenagers who take up arms when the Soviet Union invades the US. The premise was ridiculous in 1984 and is even more ridiculous now even with the main bad guys switched to the Chinese this time. Does this mean that Amerika will be remade next? It makes about as much sense. I can't help but suspect that whoever greenlighted the Red Dawn remake was a kid back in the '80s and it was his favourite film.
