“iTunes Movie Spotlight” ~ Red Riding Hood

Did you know you can rent or download the films on iTunes?  Well, yes you can! With so many of us having portable devices, how great it is to be able to watch a movie anywhere at anytime! Tonight's “iTunes Movie Spotlight” is Red Riding Hood!

Catherine Hardwicke (Twilight) directs a fantasy thriller that puts a haunting twist on the classic fairy tale. For years the villagers of Daggerhorn have maintained an uneasy truce with a werewolf – but the beast changes the stakes by killing the older sister of beautiful young Valerie (Amanda Seyfried). Promised in marriage to one man but in love with another, Valerie has her life dramatically affected yet again by the creature’s bloody actions. When a werewolf hunter warns that the beast takes human form by day and walks among them, panic sets in as the death toll rises. And Valerie learns she has a unique connection to the wolf that inexorably draws them together, making her both suspect…and bait. Gary Oldman, Billie Burke, Shiloh Fernandez, Max Irons, Virginia Madsen, Lukas Haas and Julie Christie also star.

I truly enjoyed the  ease of downloading and watching a movie from iTunes!  It is so convenient, no worries about who needs to drop the movie off at the box/video store the next day!  The selection is great too, no worries about titles being out of stock either!  Okay now onto the topic of Red Riding Hood!  I was really excited to see this movie when it came out to the theater, but as we all know the costs of a sitter and a night out are pricey.  So when I got the chance to review this movie, I jumped at it!

Red Riding Hood is a classic fairytale brought to the screen with a  more mature theme and a little twist!  Who is the big bad wolf?  I won't tell, but the movie keeps you guessing, right till the end!  It was beautifully filmed, had some interesting scenes.  The colors were vibrant and the you could feel the chill in the air when night fell and the impending big bad wolf attacks.  It is a classic tale of a beautiful young woman, growing up in a small town, where everyone knows what is best for her and who she should marry.   She becomes aware of what else is out there and who else is other there too!  It has the perfect combination of romance and suspense!

Looking for the perfect date night, but can't afford to go out?  Once the kids are in bed, order some take out and get a new release on iTunes on Demand or Download!
