    'Beautiful Creatures' review: Full of love, not that pretty

    'Beautiful Creatures': Supernatural love in a small town, again ★★

    I never thought I'd regret not having reviewed any of the "Twilight" series. Now I do, because it would have been only a few moments' work to cut and paste several paragraphs, run some search-and-replaces ("caster" for "vampire," "Ethan" for "Belle"), and...
