I ran across this (and then could not believe that there was not an earlier "Red Dawn" thread, necessitating me to start this thread.




Well worth a watch and some very interesting insight from the actors featured in this.

I always liked that movie. They went out of their way to make Russians and their stuff look like the real thing.

That's not an exaggeration. From Wikipedia:

Quote:
Before starting work on the movie, the cast underwent a realistic, intensive eight-week military training course. During that time, production crews designed and built special combat vehicles in Newhall, California. Soldier of Fortune reported that the movie's T-72 tank was such a precise replica that "while it was being carted around Los Angeles, two CIA officers followed it to the studio and wanted to know where it had come from".

Can I borrow that "aging like fine wine"?

I know, sailing in dangerous waters. I have to always invent something new.

But things are not too desperate though. When I suggest that we should do some exercise, she takes it horizontally.

Difficult, but life is. :roll:
