New Review - Basil Poledouris's "Red Dawn"

It's that time of the month again, time for another film score review. Currently posted for your reading pleasure is Basil Poledouris's Red Dawn, newly restored and expanded from its original 1984 release.

For those of you not in the know, Red Dawn is a vision of America invaded and overtaken by the Soviet Union. The only people left to stand up to the evil commies are those 80s heartthrobs Patrick Swayze, Charlie Sheen, Lea Thompson, Jennifer Grey, and Powers Boothe.

The music is by the master of 80s testosterone movie music, Basil Poledouris, a Kansas City native best known for scoring Conan the Barbarian, thereby musically introducing us to the governator.
