Red Dawn – Collector’s Edition (Blu-ray Review)

Red Dawn is one of those quintessential 1980s “super 80s” films that has lived on with nostalgia goggles long since it dropped in on us back in 1984.  It features an all-star cast of the era, including Patrick Swayze (Road House), C.

After quitting his dead-end supermarket job, young punk Otto (Emilio Estevez) […]
