Beautiful Creatures....Odd Title....

I enjoyed the movie overall, but I'm still slightly confused about how the title fits. I mean, certain members of the "immortals" were attractive, but that really had nothing to do with anything (except in Emmy Rossum's character). There were other small glitches in the story, weird things in the special effects (you can't see a glowing full moon in the middle of the day), and kinda cheesy acting moments (the spinning argument in the dining room was just too much). I thought Emma Thompson did a fantastic job, though. I think I enjoyed her the most, but I've always been a fan of her work. Emmy Rossum was funny and Alden Ehrenreich was endearing. Alice Englert got a little too melodramatic for me, though.

If your a fan of the book, you will be a bit disappointed with all the changes made throughout the movie. Characters are missing that are important and the ending is not like the book at all. Its nice to see the faces placed to the characters, but the storyline is changed way too much. Its a so so movie

Not quite the story the book told

Although the movie was visually pleasing it didn't quite follow the story line of the book. Scenes were created that weren't part of the book and important things from the book were not touched on. In the end, we looked at each other and said "What the he## was that?" If you haven't read the books you will probably enjoy this movie.

There were a few dissapointments. Many details from the book were missing, and even things that didn't happen in the book. BUT, I still fell in love with the characters. Ive read all the books and I'm not that picky about it. And for those of you who " walked out". In order to give a true critique of the movie, you should probably stay the whole time. No matter how "dreadful" it was. Which it wasn't... so if you've read the book or not, just go. And please stay the whole time so you can give an intelegent review, whether you like it or not.
