This is a nice story about how easy it is to misjudge someone.

Red Riding Hood

March 11, 2011
I must say that the story and film was better than I anticipated. I was expecting pretty much a slash fest and, although admittedly there are some violent scenes in the film, the story and suspense take up a lot of the screen time which was nice to see. The development of the characters is also [...]

Nicolas Cage plays science teacher John Koestler in this action-thriller which is just as much a mystery tale.

This mystery based on the board game we all grew up with has its hilarious times. This scatter brained group are dying off and they try to find out why and who among them is the killer. I think the movie drags on a bit longer then it takes to actually play the game. Unfortunately it cannot be [...]
