Red Riding Hood and Heist Society
I saw Red Riding Hood on the weekend. It was an ok movie. Not amazing, not terrible. Pros: Amanda Seyfried is a good actress, I loved the whole medieval thing (the village, the clothes, the armor), the visuals were amazing in certain scenes, and the biggest pro of all: you never know who the wolf is. They make you think it's this person, then another person, and then someone else entirely, and yet it was still a surprise at the end. I loved that. I liked guessing and I liked being surprised.
Cons: it was cheesy at times, slow in moments, and the whole party/dance thing was almost laughable to me. And the ending was a little disappointing. I don't want to spoil it so all I'll say is I guess I'm just too much of a romantic.
