Beautiful Creatures

I enjoyed many things about this movie. I enjoyed that it took place in the South and therefore they all had Southern accents. (It's a stupid thing to love, but what are you gonna do?) I loved the actors. I love that it had Emma Thompson in it.

However, the directing was off. The script skipped over a lot of things that were probably better explained in the book that I didn't read.

Synopsis: A troubled girl moves into a podunk town nobody's ever heard of, and meets a young man she's been having dreams of, and vice-versa. Everyone in town thinks she's satanic, but she's more like Glinda, a teenaged, goth, Glinda. The problem is, when Glinda reaches her (approaching) sixteenth birthday, she'll probably turn evil, thanks to a family curse. And you'll never guess what she has to do in order to break the curse!

As far as a movie-based-off-a-young-adult-novel goes, it was fun. Was it the best movie ever? No. Was it even the best movie-based-off-a-young-adult-novel? Of course not. Was it worth watching? Sure!
