Red Riding Hood
starring Amanda Seyfried, Gary Oldman, Billy Burke, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Virginia Madsen, Lukas Haas and Julie Christie
written by David Leslie Johnson
directed by Catherine Hardwicke
This is the Little Red Riding Hood fairy tale set in as a medieval European village haunted by a werewolf in the woods. The heroine falls in love with the beast, so it’s really a Beauty and the Beast variation. Boring! Not surprisingly, Gary Oldman’s performance as a werewolf-hunting priest was the best feature of this film - even better than the story.
