"The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn -- Part 2"
The Cullens must find a way to stop a war between the vampires. Robert Pattinson stars.
Edward and Bella are not only newlyweds, but proud parents of bouncing baby Renesmee (Mackenzie Foy) who, because of her odd DNA, grows and matures at an incredible rate. Jacob has now shifted his focus from Bella to Renesmee, which will eventually lead to some awkward Thanksgiving meals.
With no love triangle to create tension, the majority of the production is devoted to rounding up fellow vampires who can witness that Renesmee's not the threat that the crotchety ruling Volturi gang thinks she is.
Grade: B
"Red Dawn"
The remake of the 1984 film about a group of teens who band together to fight an invading army features the same patriotic bravado and coming-of-age emotions that made the original so popular.
It's like waving the American flag each time this rag-tag team of teens show maturity beyond their years to make life miserable for the North Korean army that's taken over Spokane, Wash.
Grade: B
"Wreck-It Ralph"
The villain of a classic arcade game wants to be a hero. This likable movie will entertain old and young because of the wide range of video games that serve as the backdrop for the stories.
Grade: B
Also new
"A Nightmare on Elm Street": Blu-ray collection includes seven films.
"Duck Dynasty Season 2: Volume 1": A Louisiana bayou family lives the rags-to-riches story.
"NOVA: Inside the Megastorm": A look at the impact of Hurricane Sandy.
