'Beautiful Creatures' Is Pretty 'Twilight' Redux, Emphasis on Pretty

Jeremy Irons seems to be in a constant audition to play Liberace here, his Macon a severe symbol of power who has no trouble prancing around in brightly colored gowns and jewelry

'Beautiful Creatures': Witchy Teen Drama

In teen-romance-world, adults always get it wrong, they misunderstand or they forget what "it means" to be young, they're preoccupied with rules or appearances, and oh yes, they're old. It's better, in the YA franchise world, always, to be young.

Beautiful Creatures (2001)

It is not, as I've heard it called, a 'Scottish Thelma & Louise,' as this soundbite doesn't do justice to the ambitious, if not exactly realized, aspirations of 'Beautiful Creatures'. For one thing, it's less glossy and celebratory than Ridley Scott's anthemic movie, and for another, there's no road trip in it.
