Summary: Twilight is over so now the search for the new replacement begins and first up is Beautiful Creatures, a film without a middle or and end, just a really long beginning. The film tells the story of what happens when Ethan (Alden Ehrenreich) starts having dreams about a mysterious girl called Lena (Alice Englert).
Summary: I thought it was a great movie, you know some flaws in the script but it was highly entertaining. We have to remember this movie is based in a book that's for Young Adults so as a movie based on that kind of books it was great.
Summary: This was much better than the critics/users scores imply. Yea its a bit of the now typical supernatural movie, but the lead characters are so darn cute and charming it really makes it much more enjoyable.
Summary: This one took me by surprise. It has much more charm and passion behind it than I though it would. It just gets a touch boring around the mid-point, but the end ultimately rescues it. The leads are well-cast, and the veteran supporting actors (Irons, Davis, Rossum, Thompson) are terrific they didn't get the message that you're supposed to mail it in for this type of paycheck movie. Viola Davis, in particular, is outstanding in her smallish role.
Summary: It's opposite day in teen romance world: Instead of vampires, it's witches (or Casters, as they call them). Instead of Portland, the deep South. Instead of a mortal girl, it's a boy, He (Alden Ehrenreich) isn't a pretty boy, but has charm and personality. She (Alice Englert) isn't typical pretty either, but can act OK. Much of the screen time is spent with the two of them talking. Not much real drama is generated.
Summary: For what it claims to be, this film is nearly perfect. Make no mistake, this film IS a supernatural teen romance. That said, it has clever (and legitimately funny, in the right way) writing, genuine acting and an interesting set up. Some of the dialogue is a little canned/forced, the narrative breezes through summaries that could have used more explanation, and the story does come across as formulaic.
Summary: A friend of mine talked me into seeing this with him. He knows I hate the Twilight franchise, and this seems like it's aimed for the same market, but I went anyway. It turned out to be WAY better than Twilight. The acting across the board was good, and the dialogue was believable. It also had some humor throughout, unlike the over-dramatic melodrama of Twighlight. Alden Ehrenreich was a charmer in the lead role, and the movie would not have been a success without him.
Summary: A total tween chick flick. Another film trying to pick up on the awful Twilight franchise. Some decent talent, but no storyline at all, and highly predictable. Tell your girlfriend you liked it, but I think I would have been better off staying at home and eating a pool of my own vomit.
