Is it a Beautiful Creature?

So, I’ve just got back from seeing Beautiful Creatures – and I kind of don’t know how I feel. If you were taking it as just an ordinary film, with no source novel, then I would say that it is a good film and I particularly liked the guy who they got to play Ethan, he fits the part well. Not sure on the girl who plays Lena, cause I think Lena is a character that you invision yourself how you see her.

But taking it as a novel adaptation, why did they leave so much of the plot out! That is what annoyed me the most, they sped through a lot of the good stuff and oh I don’t know, there was just bits missing! Like the necklace that they both find, only Ethan finds. Whoops *spoiler alert* throughout, should have said that from the start. And the plot of Ethan’s father is completely disregarded and they change were they find the book. And I know these are just picky things, but they are important to the story. I’m one of those people that are if you are adapting a book then bloody stick to it. And the ending, do not get me started on the ending – that should have been the center piece, but it was over with a bang. I don’t think the effects were all that good either, I was left with a bit of a tv movie feeling.

I was expecting a lot from the trailer of this and having read the books and I just feel a bit like I was watching a different movie to the book. Anyway, I’m still glad I have seen, there were a lot of parts I did enjoy and I think it had a lot of amusing bits in it too, compared to the darker tone of the book, which I liked. I however, did not enjoy the privilege of paying £7.85 to see it, that’s 2 dvd’s to me.

Anyway, role on City of Bones! They showed a trailer for that and it looks great!

Shocking revelation!!

Last night I discovered something that has chilled me to the bone. I have the misfortune of being attached at both sides of my house and have neighbours that don’t consider being noisy a problem! However, last night it was revealed to me, that something that I thought was something, was actually something else entirely nasty!

I can pretty much hear everything my neighbours do, because apparently they are fairy elephants. However, when I was getting ready for bed last night, I heard what I presumed was the sink being filled up. It wasn’t till either my very very happy neighbour but more likely very very drunk neighbour started singing, Singin In The Rain. Accept the word raining was replaced with peeing and the word rain was replaced with toilet! That’s right, I can hear my neighbours peeing in the toilet! Now it’s all I can bloody hear. And with that can of worms opened, so did another – what if they can hear me peeing? Can you control the volume of your pee! Am I crazy (YES!).

I can’t really say more than this!


Book Of The Day: I have finally finished Beautiful Creatures – it took me forever. And my eReader loves rubbing in just how much time I had left to read! But I’m perfectly in time for the movie!
