I remember hearing Catherine Hardwicke's name for the first time three years ago.  Even though Lords of Dogtown was a hit and Thirteen was one of those films that caught attention in the festival circuit, it was not until she was attached to Twilight that she actually became a "director to watch".  I will confess I was one of those "twi-hards" that stood in line for hours waiting to see what Hardwicke had done to a story that had a growing fan base.  Truth …

   How do you take a short fairy tale warning kids not to talk to strangers and stretch it into a feature film? In Red Riding Hood‘s case, not very successfully.      All the classic elements are in there: the girl, the red cloak, the woods, the grandmother – and of course, the wolf. Yet this time the wolf is a werewolf who terrorizes a small medieval village, nestled deep in the woods, and the girl, Valerie (Amanda Seyfried) is considerably older. In fact, …

Star Rating:         In the hands of director Catherine Hardwicke and screenwriter David Leslie Johnson, Red Riding Hood has been transformed from a simple morality play into a supernatural teen romance. In Hardwicke’s case, I hardly found this surprising, given her previous directorial credit, Twilight. In Johnson’s case, however, I found myself taken aback. This is the same man who penned Orphan, the surprisingly good horror film from 2009 about a manipulative …

Im really glad i didnt pay to see this but what was i to expect after the horror that was twilight! The idea behins this movie was great, and the commercial looked good but i was let down big time. This movie gets so boring through the middle part that i almost turned it off, but i guess it wasnt a total loss because the somewhat suprising ending was almost worth the wait. Look for it in a few months in a bargin bin near you!
