New Releases – Finally a week where you have more than one new film to choose from, in fact you have 3 big films on offer.  First off is the remake of Red Dawn which has been sitting on the shelf for so long in might of gone off, your second choice is Ang Lee’s latest film The Life of Pi, your final choice of the week is animated film Rise of the Guardian.

Trailer: Red Dawn

A group of teenagers look to save their town from an invasion of North Korean soldiers.

First Impression: This film has been in movie hell like a previous Chris Hemsworth film and too me it look’s like it could be a fun action film, yes it’s another remake of a 80’s film but let’s hope it’s much better than the Australian version Tomorrow When the War Begins.
