The Village+Twilight+The Crucible=Red Riding Hood
I started watching this movie knowing absolutely nothing except that Amanda Freid was in it. I didn't have high expectations. I was WRONG! Absolutely beautiful cinematography; Catherine Hardwicke surpassed Twilight with this one I think. My expectations went higher when I saw that Leonardo Di Caprio produced it. Very suspenseful. Shocked when I saw who the big bad wolf was. Gary Oldman was awesome as usual. For anyone comparing this to Twilight, you will be happy with Amanda's performance in comparison to Kristen Stewarts. (and I'm a Twilight fan, so that's saying a lot) Music played/soundtrack was great. Jumped out of my seat at one part. Completely horrified and cringing at another part. There were two, "puh-leeze", roll my eyes parts, but they were immediately forgiven. Romantic plot was great and believable.
