RED DAWN // Despite its growing unpopularity from critics, the “Red Dawn” remake is actually an entertaining, stand alone action film, which picks its moments with precision and executes them with style. With above average performances from Chris Hemsworth, Josh Peck, and Adrianne Palicki, there is an edge to this film that the original lacked. Reflecting many of the same beats as the 1984 version, this updated thriller still surprises, delivering multiple nail-biting sequences and twists that were mulled over in the original. In my book, “Red Dawn” is a success, not replacing the Swayze-Sheen embodiment, but contributing to it justly.


WRECK-IT RALPH // Clever in all the right ways, “Wreck-It Ralph” is Disney’s answer to the end of the “Toy Story” franchise. With new and exciting characters in a mix with familiar video game faces that all will recognize, like Sonic the Hedgehog and Pacman, there is a quirky charm to “Wreck-It Ralph” that entertains for its entire run-time. John C. Reilly and Sarah Silverman both prove that their voice acting might just top their live-action acting, with strong vocal performances from both. Enjoyable for all age groups, this quaint animated feature reaches a level I didn’t expect it to reach.
