June 17th, 2011: Steel Dawn

What It’s About:  After an unnamed war, a wandering ex-soldier with no name (Patrick Swayze) travels to a small town to investigate the murder of his ment0r Cord (John Fujioka).

Why Watch it Today?:  Today is the World Day to Combat Desertification, and Steel Dawn revolves around the primacy and value of water as a resource in a world made desert by the ravages of war.  It is also an amusing, if at times very silly, Post-Apocalypse updating of the Western Shane, with a fun cast that features many “that guy” actors, including Brion James, Anthony Zerbe, Christopher Neame and Arnold Vosloo.

Where to Get It:  Netflix or Amazon
