    saw red riding hood yesterday and thought Billy was phenomenal. A very different type of character for him but he played it extremely well.

  2. saw red riding hood
    Billy was AMAZING
    he was charlie swan but more badass lol
    every twilight fan should see it
    its a great movie

  3. do we mean “predicted”?

  4. I have to agree. Billy’s character arc in Red Riding Hood is both entertaining and a huge shocking twist at the end. Definitely a departure from our dear Charlie Swan,Forks cheif of police. I thought the movie was cool and I mainly wanted to see it because our Ms. Hardwicke directed it. She’s a talented film maker and I can’t wait to see what other projects she does next.

    Red Riding Hood has an 11% “fresh” rating on Rotten Tomatoes – sorry Catherine and Billy, I think I’ll give this one a pass.

    What I’m really really really looking forward to seeing is “Jane Eyre” (the gothic romance ur-text).

  6. I saw Rango last weekend. It was cute but I was thinking it was going to be more like Shrek (jokes for both kids and adults) but it wasn’t. The kids there loved it though! I think all the actors did a great job-just wasn’t quite my cup of tea ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m curious if anyone else thinks Red Riding Hood is worth seeing?

    • I’ve seen both Rango and Red Riding Hood.

      I agree with you about Rango it was ok, but wasn’t great.

      Red Riding Hood, was a really good movie. I’m even thinking about seeing it again. I would recommend seeing it, especially if you liked twilight.

  7. I liked Red Riding Hood a lot. Great cinematography that creates a fairy tale atmosphere, and nice acting by Burke, Oldman, Seyfried and others. In fact, I would say that it’s one of the better werewolf movies. Not as good as my favorites Ginger Snaps and Company of Wolves, but top five for sure.

    And I wouldn’t pay too much heed to critical consensus. New Moon only got 27% at Rotten Tomatoes!

  8. I liked the movie, but I certainly can see why so many critics hated it. The movie sort of begins abruptly, with little to know explanation or exposition as to what is going on. After reading the novelization, it’s like the movie skipped the entire first act. The second half is much better than the first… All in all I still enjoyed it, although I loath Fever Ray, and having an alternative rock number in the middle of a period piece movie… was sort of out of place… but hey…
    I don’t know about you, but I think Red Riding Hood could have also been titled… Team Jacob’s Revenge! ๐Ÿ˜› Rebellious native-looking poor guy beats smoldering scruffy-haired rich guy… ๐Ÿ™‚
