I'm Not Afraid Of You Or Your Evil Kind!

'Beautiful Creatures'...nice title. Reminiscent of 'Heavenly Creatures'. Seems to be some striking and high-end visuals. Story looks to have a spine as well. So? Well...this kind of thing, targeted to kids, usually doesn't have that stuff. Why? Cause why go to the trouble? Kids gobble it up and ask questions later, except they don't ask questions.

Also, check the cast: Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis, Emmy Rossum -- just a cut above, which, when you think about it, is another thing you don't need, not really, for this kind of movie. Kids just don't care who's in it, what actors play what roles. Not really.

Directed by Richard LaGravenese, who strives mightily. Could be worth catching. Coming February 13 so it's not like there will be a lot of classy competition.
