|07.29.06||Borrowed|| I had this friend in college... He was from a small town about an hour outside of Rochester... The men in his family hunted every year and they lived way out in the woods and he had more than one piece of camoflaged clothing and although he was a nice guy and I was friends with him, it didn't take too large a stretch in the imagination to picture him snapping some day and taking a gun to work. Anyway, his two favorite movies were Slaughterhouse Five and Red Dawn. We watched this once in my dorm room and I got the distinct impression that some part of him was just waiting for this movie to happen. This wasn't like a cautionary war movie or a nightmarish vision of what could happen but more like a fantasy... Like oh man if only someone invaded so i could hang out in the woods all the time and shoot them.|
So I'm hesitant to like this movie too much.
It is good though... just as long as it's in a Patrick Swayze's character sort of way instead of a C. Thomas Howell's character way.
