THANK GOD, i was think the same thing about flowers in the attic. something was just missing, tbh though i wouldn't mind being locked in an attic with the brother #justsaying ;)

I felt like the movie was missing all of the dark intensity of the books. It also moved incredibly fast. The jump from a month to Cathy all of a sudden announcing it had been two years made my head spin. I also remember Cathy being far more bitter and angry with her mother a lot sooner. Like I said, I’m just not sure if it was the acting or the script. Also, the twins storyline wasn’t even played out. The death of Cory was poorly done, and what electric fence??

Sometimes I wish they would just leave books as books and not try. If you’re not going to take a page from the Harry Potter series and really go all out to get it right, just leave it alone.
