Went and saw this movie with my husband on Valentine's Day, and was extremely disappointed. Hubby liked it, but he didn't read the books. I read all 4 books and I think that's why I didn't like it as much. The books are so much better, than the movie. I went and saw it a second time with my mom last night, and thought it wasn't that bad. Is it better than Twilight or Harry Potter? No. Would I buy the movie? Probably, since I have the books. Those of you who haven't read the books, please watch the movie, before you read them. You will be disappointed by all the scenes that should have been in the movie, but were cut out or not filmed at all.

This was the worst movie I have ever seen made from a book. The people did not fit. The story was ruined. Amma was not the librarian, The death of Macon was not done correctly.
The book of moon's was not found in that way. Lena drove a hearse. Important people were left out.
DID THE PERSON WRITING THE SCRIPT EVEN READ THE BOOK? I DON'T THINK SO. AND CERTAINLY NOT ANY OF THE OTHER BOOK'S. IMPORTANT PEOPLE WERE LEFT OUT.
ALL I CAN SAY IS TRASH.
IF YOU HAVE READ THE BOOK'S, DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME ON THE MOVIE, IT IS A REAL DISAPPOINTMENT.

When I first saw previews for this movie I said "WOW! it looks awesome! I better read the book before I see it!" I was beyond disappointed to find out that the movie is NOTHING like the book. They changed characters, forgot characters, and flat out CHANGED things that happened in the book. I hope they don't make a sequel.

I went to see this movie cause I thought I would enjoy it... I did enjoy it but not as much as I would have thought i would. At heart I knew it was a love story with some witch action. The love story is correct but don't feel natural kinda feels forced. There were some witch magic but very very rare in this film. They made it sound like the evil witch of the movie powerful but she was pretty pathetic at the end when the confrontation came. Overall this movie is so so. If you got nothing else to see then check it out... but wait till it comes out for rental.

I really enjoyed the movie but I hate when someone fakes a Southern Accent! There are many actors with real accents that could play the part and if you have to fake an accent get the region correct. That was a Mississippi accent not a South Carolina accent we too in the South have different accents for different regions.
