It's completely transparent and banal. That's what makes it fun -- how preposterous and corny it all is. I would never have imagined that anyone in 2007 could consider it a serious piece of culture.

Cold war propaganda aside, its still a good survival movie. What would you do if an invading force came into this country, go to the camps and do as your told? Sure it's unrealistic and pretty much impossible, but the kids in the movie had the right idea of how to act.

What reminded me of that was I was cleaning out all the dead leaves and shit in my garden that hasnt been cleaned out in years, and I found an old burger king toy of "the flesh" poking out of the ground. (well, just the upper torso)
