Trailer Tuesdays: City of Bones Teaser

I’ve been hearing about this movie for some time now, and after watching fan trailers over and over again, seeing an actual trailer made my week:

So I’m not going to lie. I’m not the biggest fan of The Mortal Instruments. It’s entertaining, and much better than something like Twilight, but it’s less of a “OMG I have to read it to know what happens” series and more of a “did my friend finish the books yet so she could tell me how it ends” series. But it does have its positives. Despite Clary being an obvious self-insert for Cassandra Clare, she did have a personality. I could tell she was an artist by the way she describes things, and I really like the characters Magnus and Alec. So it does have some good qualities to it.

As a whole, The Mortal Instruments is a unique idea, and while I’m not a fan of the romance in it—like how Clary falls in love with Jace in about a week—it definitely has its moments.

Speaking of Jace, you know what I hate about characters like him going from books to the big screen? Remember all the obnoxious Twilighters who got butthurt because Robert Pattinson didn’t meet their expectations of hotness? Yeah, I expect to hear the same thing about Jace, only on a much smaller level.

This is the problem with writing a “hot” character. No actor will ever appease everyone’s different criteria.

Anyway, I’m really looking forward to this movie. And I hope it does well. Although, that’s more because if I’m not going to finish the series by reading it, watching it is the next best thing.
