Had no idea he was in that! I might actually go see it…quite like Gary Oldman and Amanda Seyfried too.

I hate the whole A-list, B-list thing. Honestly, there are a lot of television actors I feel can put off far better performances than major movie actors.

Early reviews says not only is Red Riding Hood godawful, but it makes twilight look like CASABLANCA. Sweet Merciful Lord; if Red Riding Hood makes that awful mess Twilight look like CASABLANCA, then it’s truly worthy of the Dragon Wars and in the name of the king award; for a movies so bad, it makes the viewer violently ill (LIKE HOW DRAGON WARS and IN THE NAME OF THE KING made me ill)

Congratulations to Michael on his red carpet appearance at the LA premiere of RRH…and it was nice to see that the proud father took his eldest daughter Tatiana with him to it…

I was partially interested in the movie before learning of Shanks’ involvement. Now i’m definitely gonna find time to go see it. Hope he’s got a decent sized role in it.

“Early reviews says not only is Red Riding Hood godawful, but it makes twilight look like CASABLANCA.” It wasn’t the best movie ever, but it was nowhere near as bad as Twilight. The first two movies of that franchise were just poorly made films- this isn’t fantastic, but it’s not as bad as they were either (though Eclipse, which was much better than its predecessors, may give it a run for its money). This is definitely one of those movies where your expectations are a big factor. If you’re looking for something Oscar-worthy, and I don’t know why anyone would… Read more »

I saw an advance press screening of “Red Riding Hood,” and holy HELL, this is a bad film. Terrible writing, horrific direction, and not even very good acting, despite the list of talent involved. This movie is the next “M. Night’s The Last Airbender” or “Twilight,” in terms of being a major disappointment. There are plotholes galore, the premise is entirely unconvincing and many of the actors are wrong for their roles. Shanks’ involvement is not enough of a reason for me to ever waste my time watching this film again.

I wouldn’t mind seeing the film. Shank seems to be a great guy. His website had links to some interviews done at the premiere. Strangely enough everyone got asked about Charlie Sheen instead of the movie. You got to love Michael’s reply:

“The thing about Charlie is that before entertain for 2.5 million dollars an episode, and now he’s doing a lot of entertaining for free. So he’s giving back and I’m proud of him for that.”

sorry about typo’s – I do wish there was an edit or delete function.
“The thing about Charlie is that before he was entertaining for 2.5 million…” The Michael interview is at 1.00 minutes in the clip

Cool! Good for Michael. Sounds like a interesting take on the Red Riding Hood fairy tale. I look forward to seeing this.

The movie looks stupid, sounds stupid and according to the reviews is stupid, too.
It’s sad, it’de be nice if they’d give him a better role. : But then again, nothing to write home about in the theatres as of late.

[…] at least it’s good to know that, given what he said in a recent interview with Gateworld, he had fun filming Red Riding […]
