In the original story of Little Red Riding Hood the Big Bad Wolf swallows the grandmother and the little girl whole, a gruesome, albeit impossible, ordeal to go through. However, this level of gruesomeness does not compare to sitting through Red Riding Hood, a loose film adaptation of this classic story that has forever tainted my childhood memories of hearing this tale.

I am not going to even try to explain the plot as it is both complex and better experienced as virgin as possible. But in short it follows a team of contracted thieves, led by Cobb, who steal information from people’s minds by sedating them and creating a dream world which allows them to extract their target mission. When the team is recruited to plant an idea in a mark’s mind, through Inception, they will have the greatest challenge they have faced yet.
