'Red Riding Hood': How is it like 'Twilight'? Let us count the ways.

POPWATCH. EW.com  made an interesting article to see the similarities between 'Red Riding Hood and twilight :-


by Adam Markovitz :-


Red Hiding Hood (in theaters now), is an updated fairy tale about a young woman named Valerie (Amanda Seyfried) who is caught between two suitors — idealistic Henry (Max Irons) and bad-boy Peter (Shiloh Fernandez) — in a town besieged by a blood-thirsty werewolf. It doesn’t have a single vampire. There’s no high-school-is-hell subplot. AndHood is set in an old-timey village that looks like it was probably fossil-fodder by the timeTwilight‘s Bella (Kristen Stewart) was born. And yet, it’s hard to watch Red Riding Hoodwithout having an odd feeling of Twilight déjà vu. 

Let’s break down the similarities:

1. They’re both directed by Catherine Hardwicke. But that’s a gimme, so moving on…

2. Werewolf alert. Still too easy. Next!

3. Lines like “One bite… and you’ll be like me.” This is getting ridiculous. Let’s try to think of a hard one now. Like, how about…

4. Identical dads. How’s this for a weird coincidence: The guys who play Valerie and Bella’s dads might as well be cousins they look so much alike. Crazy, right? Wait, hang on a sec. They actually are both played by the exact same actor? Come on. This isn’t even fun now.

5. Gloomy, woodsy town. Okay, here’s a good one: Hood takes place in a forested, gray-skied village that might as well be a medieval version of Twilight‘s Forks, Washington.

6. Brooding boys. Shiloh Fernandez and Max Irons (yup, Jeremy’s son) would be perfect opponents in a brow-furrowing doubles match with Twilight‘s Rob Pattinson and Taylor Lautner.

7. Love triangle. Valerie’s heart is torn between loyal Henry and dangerous Peter both of whom are prone to making woozy declarations of their love. They might as well be wearing their own Team Jacob/Team Edward shirts under their tunics.

8. Hot-blooded heroine. Hood‘s Valerie and Twilight‘s Bella might not know which guy they should choose, but that doesn’t stop them from having steamy moments with each of their suitors — in a strictly PG-13 sense, of course.

9. Cloak chic. Looks like Valerie and the Volturi went shopping at the same branch of Hood Depot. I mean Cape Town. Cowls R’ Us. No wait, I’ll think of a good one…

10. Goth soundtrack. Both movies are scored with pulsing, hurts-so-good emo music. Which is fine, but we would’ve picked something more along the lines of this.

I saw the movie it was okay...what steamy scene did she have with Henry?? she kissed him on the neck..The steamy scene was with Peter...The only thing I thought was really stupid was Billy Burke (aka Charlie) end up being the wolf..I just wasn't feeling it...I thought Amana Seyfried was believable she has beautiful Blue Eye's...

The book was crap. Every other line had a simile. Not even kidding. There are other ways to compare and contrast...Go to Walmart and read the first chapter and you'll see what I'm talking about. 

I was planning on seeing the movie because I love Amanda, but it looks dull. I don't feel any emotion when I watch the trailer.

Um, yes! You are supposed to judge movies before you go see them. That's how you decide to spend your money at the theater or not.

It's going to get compared to Twilight because it has the same director! Hell, Cathy wants it to be compared! She mentioned Twilight purposely on the RRH red carpet at least a hundred times. She's been like, "Twilight fans will love it!" ever since the project was announced.

So, uh... yeah.
