Looking for the name of a movie...

Recommended Posts

I remember watching the movie as a rental in the mid to late 80's. However I am not sure when it was made. I don't remember any of the actors in it, nor do the faintest idea of a possible title.

I know, I know... I'm off to a great start here!

All I remember of the movie was that a group of guys are forced to live in the woods/mountains after their town in the US is invaded by what I remember as the Russians... I remember the parachute troops dropping in a school yard if that helps any..

Thanks in advance for any suggestions! I'm running out of ideas on what to search for...

Oddly enough Wolverines wasn't it... But the search on youtube for it resulted in finding Red Dawn - which was the movie I was looking for...

So thanks... I can now go back to my regular scheduled life!

I don't know why, but it stuns me that somebody would not know this movie instantly. Makes me feel old.

Is there a more underrated actor than Patrick Swayze...Red Dawn, Point Break, Road House, The Outsiders, Youngblood...how this cinematic genius did not win an Oscar is truly one of the great mysteries of the silver screen...

I was probably 8 when I watched it.

My wife was born the year the movie was made - if that makes you feel any better! :lmao:

I know the feeling. I have a bad habit of quoting famous lines from older movies, and the under 30 crowd I work with just give me that "what the hell was that all about" look.

I was thinking the same thing....then I realized, my wife wouldn't know it.

She's 38 and wouldn't have a clue what "Red Dawn" was....but then again she's not really a movie buff at all.

I get the same feeling when people tell me they haven't seen "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" or have never heard of "Bill & Ted's Excellent Adventure". :lmao:

I'm trying to remember this one movie...

They're having a war amongst the stars. There's this big monkey like character and also a princess with a goofy hairstyle. I think it had robots in it.

Anyone?

Edit: Oh yeah. There was also this big planet weapon and the characters shot some sort of electric bolts out of their guns rather than bullets. And an old guy gave some sort of light scalpel to some kid.

Hmmm. That might be it. I think it also had a sequel where there were some giant walking turtle like things beat the bad guys in Norway or Minnesota. Then the kid visited the Geico gecko and the rest of the heroes are chased around a bit until they get captured by the Man In Black (Princess Bride maybe? :lmao: ).

I'm stumped on this one. Do you remember any memorable catch phrases or plot twists that could help the rest of us remember too?

Sorry, on this board I will never believe this was sincere. Way too much machismo around here for any member not to know Red Dawn.

If it was sincere, you might be more comfortable here :shrug:
