The Pentagon's top general this week predicted that the U.S. pivot to Asia and increased support for alliances in the region will produce "friction" with China.
In preemptively appeasing the Chinese cultural commissars, the filmmakers behind the new "Red Dawn" have abandoned realistic detail for toothless fantasy in the hopes of gaining lucre.
The production of "Red Dawn" (2012) was famously troubled. A remake of the 1984 hit of the same name about American high school students waging guerrilla war in defense of the homeland against communist invaders, the new "Red Dawn" is also, in a sense, a remake of itself.
