Are the USA made computer games and movies (especially "Rambo") hampering the worldwide idea about communism?

Anyone who takes ideological cues from a movie like rambo 3 is not going to be that hard to influence in any direction.

A HUGE example of an anti-communist movie would have to be Scarface with Al Pacino..... He hates them with a passion... I disagree 100%, considering Communism is the evolution of Democracy... Good movie though.

I don't know if Scarface really counts as "Anti-Communist propaganda". The only Communist you really see is some random plot device used to get Montana and his friend out of the refugee camp. After all, keep in mind that Montana was a deserter who had been incarcerated and kicked out of Cuba. Most people would probably be less than enthused with their government, regardless of type, if that happened.

Red Dawn! That's anti-communist propaganda. And a crappy movie, too! I still can't believe that they're going to remake that friggen' thing. What, are the directors so scared that Obama really is a socialist, and are they so scared because people are FINALLY going to have it crushed into their skulls that capitalism DOESN'T work (from ..y'know, the failed economy) that they think they need to remake that shit? Ugh. :[

Propaganda in the forms of movies like "Red Dawn, Invasion USA and Rambo" are ineffective from a propaganda point of view. Much more powerful is the most subtle, all-encompassing propaganda that is nearly impossible to escape, which permeates itself throughout the media as a whole. Think of the values that have been embedded in American culture (personal 'freedom,' loose morality, value of private property, disdain for the role of government in economics, etc.). These are cultivated throughout a highly-sophisticated mass-media which not only disseminates, but validates their existence and is inextricably linked with the socialization process of constructing American citizens. It's a fascinating phenomena, and I strongly encourage people to read the works of Edward Bernays, the so-called founder of the public relations industry, to better understand firsthand how pervasive this really is.
