Went in with extremely low expectations on this one. I am not sold yet on Amanda Seyfried but she could turn out to be a decent actress. Gary Oldman as always… More

Re-telling of the fairy with the werewolf terrorising the villagers. Good cast. Leonardo DiCaprio produces.

Out of all the movies to rip-off, why rip-off "Twilight"? This film is neither scary nor romantic, it is just a painful bore-fest The only saving… More

This could have been really bad. But it was allright. A interesting take on the old story. The directing, art directing and cinematography is looking good.… More
