Ok, so the short review is that the movie is wonderful.
Amanda...perfectly cast. Max and Shiloh...impressive newcomers. Visuals...stunning. Music...I need the soundtrack NOW!
I'm terrible at writing reviews (as you can see), but I have nothing but good things to say about the movie. It was romantic and sexy with just the right amount of action and scares (my lovely mother, who made the trip with me, jumped a few times throughout).
After the screening, I had the chance to talk to Catherine Hardwicke again and meet Sarah Blakley-Cartwright, the author of the New York Times Bestselling novel Red Riding Hood.
I stood outside (for 5 hours in the windy cold) the premiere tonight in the hopes of meeting some of the movie's stars, but Gary Oldman was the only one to come over to our side and I am now nursing a cold.
I was able to get a few shots of Max Irons and Virginia Madsen, though they are not the best quality.
