Shari S asked:

Is it just me or did the movie totally suck? I can't even bring myself to watch the entire thing. I know books are always better yet I did enjoy the Harry Potter movies and Twilight...but this one was awful. Wrong choice of actors for the parts to begin with. Ugh.

Kayla I thoroughly enjoyed the movie, since I watched it first. The books are always better, but in this case the filmmakers seemed to want to really make it their own and not necessarily stay very close to the story from the book. I actually love the choice of actors, but film adaptations are always disappointing because they can never live up to what you've already seen and felt while reading the story yourself. Even so, I do hope they make the sequel, but that they stay truer to the book.
Shiah I thought the actor choices were alright but yeah the movie was very bad. Well I thought so its just my opinion.
Mae Jackson I agree with Shari. I had a very hard time sitting through the whole thing. Badly casted and the whole thing made me cringe. I didn't like how Valentine was casted the most.
Lana the movie was bad! Jace in the movie had no emotion! he wasn't sarcastic sounding at all!
Vortex Yeah I had the same experience. For me it was even okay that Valentin was totally different because it seemed to fit in but the rest was shit. That they showed Jace like a romantic not-that-bad-boy.. At least the jokes they copied (like the classic one "I'm natural blond") where totally lame.
Emere Yeah the characters don't suit at all even though I myself haven't seen the whole movie :(
