Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures

SM Cinemas, Pioneer Films, and Yes FM had their advance screening of the movie Beautiful Creatures last Tuesday. I was one of lucky few who got to attend and see it. With me was my friend, Clangsy of All Things, who was more than happy to go and watch it with me. Needless to say, the whole night never had a dull moment because the movie was more than entertaining for the both of us.. or maybe its just me who thinks so. 

Going to this screening seemed like a rush thing that I did not have enough background info about the movie except seeing the trailer of it a day before. I have done a short background check on the cast but only a couple of names were familiar to me. Kyle Gallner, who I remember was Bart/Impulse from Smallville.. and then there’s Emmy Rossum. I don’t think I’ve seen any of her movies but her name stands out. The names of the main characters don’t even sound close to familiar to me. Lol. Then after I watched the trailer I still didn’t get a good grasp of what the story is about aside from being a movie in the supernatural genre.

“Oh, well, I’ll just let the whole movie speak for itself.. surprise me or something,” I said to myself.

As it turns out, this is a film adaptation of a YA novel. So that explains the Twilight Saga mention in the ticket, lol! BUT DON’T GET ME WRONG! Just because that Twilight is mentioned anywhere here does not mean it’s as “bad” or “awful” as that movie (somehow I can tolerate the Twilight saga movies; well, only the last 3 movies from the saga anyway; the first movie was just hilarious). Nope, there are no vampires or werewolves in this movie, if you’re wondering. The girl is not obsessed w/ the guy like how Bella is with Edward. But Ethan is a character you’d never take seriously because…. hahaha, watch it and find out for yourself.

I don’t want to spoil anything, although if you search the internet enough you’ll probably land on some page discussing the whole plot of it. But what I would like to say about this movie is that I enjoyed it. BC is not one of those movies that requires serious analyzing as you watch it.. yet there are scenes that grab your attention in a way. It was good enough for me and I did not find much to criticize about except maybe the ending was not really up to par with how *I* wanted it to end. Bitin yung ending. 😛

Now it’s evident that I am not a hard film viewer to please, hahaha.

The next day, I did my research around the internet.. at the end of the day, I’m still left with an unanswered question about it: IS THERE GOING TO BE/ALREADY A 2ND MOVIE OF THIS IN THE WORKS?!

When you get the chance to watch this in cinemas, go ahead give it a chance. Right now, I think I actually want to watch it again.

By the way, much thanks to Jonver of Where is Jonver for inviting us! :)

    I was planning on watching this film but I haven’t found the time to do it. I haven’t even read the books yet, they’ve been sitting in iBooks for a while. Maybe I will read the books after I see the film. I am unsure if it’s still showing. I guess I will check the local listings.
