Red Dawn : No serious WW3 scenario film yet ….

No serious WW3 scenario film yet ….

I think that's a script yet to be made. Or maybe someone knows something is in prep secretly?

The Day After, Threads, etc.

Re: No serious WW3 scenario film yet ….

WarGames was the big one. It helped inspire President Reagan's outlook on the nuclear race and his star wars program. The scenario in WarGames almost became a reality on more than one occasion. Only instead of a teenage hacker and a room full of agents, humanity was saved by a single person from a control room.

Don't be a goddamn lying idiot.

WARGAMES INSPIRED REAGAN???????

That's easily the stupidest thing I've seen here in 10 years.

Ronald Reagan was known to be heavily influenced by movies. He named his satellite laser defense system Star Wars after the movie very very very publicly.
He was a former movie star after all. And yes, he was inspired by the movie War Games, and was known to have had screenings with numerous brass at the white house.

In the early 80's, the Red Dawn "what if" scenario wasn't entirely impossible (implausible, of course). It was sort of an alternate timeline leading up to the events of the film, which we can assume happened in 1984, or in the near future.

Re: No serious WW3 scenario film yet ….

Hey pal, Red Dawn was serious for its time. Seriously though, I'll go with the latter (it's "somewhere" in development).


Hey there, Johnny Boy, I hope you fry!

Or this one I remember seeing as a kid titled World War III: http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0084919/?ref_=fn_al_tt_1

Re: No serious WW3 scenario film yet ….

There were two major scares in the late 70's where our computers indicated a massisive russian nuclear attack due to a system failure. The war games scenario did happen where the leaders had to decide to not lister to the computers and use their other senses to decide there was no attack.

Re: No serious WW3 scenario film yet ….

The false alerts were June 3rd and 6th in 1980. Googling the information reminded me that my brother stated once that he got the claxton and was in the B-52 on the runway waiting for the order to take off when it turned out that the Soviet launches were false.
As for those naysayers who say that the premise of Red Dawn was improbable or could not happen, the attack plan in the move followed the facts of when the Soviets attacked Afghanistan.
