I blame my Amanda Seyfried love for this

March 9, 2011 at 7:14 pm (The Movie I'm not Seeing this Weekend) (, , )

But Red Riding Hood doesn’t look horrible.

And it's got this nifty poster too, which has a nice, claustrophobic feel to it thanks to the trees surrounding Seyfried.

It’s got beautiful visuals, with the red cloak standing out neatly against the white snow, and this one scene where the fog goes rolling over the ground all eerie and elegant, and then it’s got Amanda Seyfried, who is the most beautiful visual of all.

I just don't get you Seyfried haters. She is a stone fox. Do people still say stone fox? Will the kids get what I mean?

AND MY GOD DID I MENTION IT’S GOT GARY OLDMAN?

Gary Oldman as a werewolf hunter!

And he's wearing armor and he's got a sword, and that is so hot, you don't even know.

I can get behind that! In fact, I am pretty certain that Gary Oldman, when not acting the socks off his coworkers, does hunt werewolves and other creatures of the night because he is Gary Oldman, dammit, and what else is he going to do with his spare time? (Other than your girlfriend, badoom-BOOM.)

Look, don't blame your girlfriend. It's GARY OLDMAN.

In fact, the pretty, pretty trailer completely convinced me to ignore the part at the beginning where it said “From the Director of Twilight” and groove along to the cheesy rock song because there are going to be brutal slayings and fires and whooooooo! This movie is going to be so good, I am sure of it!

I can forgive her. I can forgive her.

But now that the adrenaline has worn off it occurs to me that there’s two different guys showing interest in Amanda Seyfried’s character, which means: IT’S A LOVE TRIANGLE OH GOD IT’S A ROMANCE IN DISGUISE YOU NEARLY FOOLED ME.

That screen shot's pretty hot, though, you've got to admit.

    Gary Oldman is weird. He was on Conan the other night and he went on in detail about this dream he had involving Conan, Paul McCartney and a whole lot of weirdness. Amanda is A-MAY-zing! Have you seen her in Chloe?

    • lokifire said,

      Yeah, he’s weird. But he’s Gary Oldman, so it’s OK.
      I have not seen Chloe. What is Chloe?

        Oooh… I just found this: http://music-mix.ew.com/2011/03/10/amanda-seyfried-sings-lil-red-riding-hood-exclusive/ :D

        “Chloe” is… where do I start? 1) It’s a remake of a French film. 2)It stars Amanda Seyfried, Liam Neeson and Julianne Moore. 3) It’s rated R for strong sexual content including graphic dialogue, nudity and language.

        Amanda plays an escort named “Chloe”, who is hired by Julianne Moore’s character to test her hubby (Neeson) and see if he’s being unfaithful. Trashy? Sure. But it’s miles better than “Dear John”.

    damn you! now i actually sorta wanna see that damn Twilight-ified version of RRH :(

    speaking of movies: i just watched one of the greatest things i’ve ever seen. it was an old (pre-Hollywood) Jet Li movie called Kung-Fu Cult Master. it was so wonderfully horrible. actually, it might have been no worse than mildly campy if the subtitles hadn’t been so bad, but as it is, it was amazing!

    • lokifire said,

      Kung-Fu Cult Master sounds like a movie I need to see. Desperately.

      But then I’d’ve had to put up with Megan Fox, and I just don’t think I could do that.
