Wolverines! Herald movie critic Robert Horton reviews a new remake of “Red Dawn,” the 1980s movie in which scrappy teenagers save the USA from nasty Soviet invaders. Spoiler alert! It’s a dog.

Oh look, the “real killer”: A documentary airing tonight on one of the less discerning cable networks claims a Florida death-row inmate might have been involved in the murder of O.J. Simpson’s ex-wife and her friend — to the angry dismay of victim Ronald Goldman’s family.
