WEDNESDAY'S GREGALOGUE: RED DAWN, TAKE TWO: WIMPS

So you remember "Red Dawn," it was that 80's flick about American kids arming themselves against a Soviet invasion.

I've seen it thirteen times, mainly because I'm a huge fan of C. Thomas Howell. And I'm lonely.

But that's another story for another time. The film has since been remade, with the producers replacing the Russian bad guys with Chinese.

but now - According to the L.A. Times, China has become such a big market for Hollywood, MGM studios have decided to replace the Chinese with North Koreans.

Yep, in a first for Hollywood: filmmakers actually digitally erased Chinese flags and symbols and replaced dialogue... so now North Korea are the invaders.

Because, with that country, there's nothing to be gained, financially. It's as lucrative as a Kathy Griffin porn site.

Color me unsurprised.

Hollywood may be where dreams are made, but it's also where wimps are cultivated.

I mean, look who they chose, just seven years after 9/11. The Chinese!

How's that for cowardice? Here real life hands you an honest-to-God adversary - radical Islam - and you choose a country that makes your tennis shoes.

Wusses.

The paper says the "changes illustrate just how much sway China's government has in the global entertainment industry."

But an MGM spokesman says no one spoke to anyone linked to the Chinese government.

So i guess they gave in without a fight.

Which makes you wonder how quickly they'd fold when faced with a real threat.

Those kids from the original Red Dawn would be disgusted.

Anyway, I look forward to their remake of the China Syndrome. I hear the new title is "Tibet Sucks."

and if you disagree with me, you're worse than Hitler.
