Movies: The Mortal Instruments

We watched this the other day. I wasn’t as annoyed by Lily Collins as I assumed I would be. I liked the movie more than I would have guessed. But…
I couldn’t help thinking it was Star Wars mashed up with Twilight.
Spoilers ahead…

Brother and sister fall in love only to find out the truth. The villain is really their father. Their mother sacrifices herself to protect her daughter. So on and so forth.

I did like that it wasn’t exactly the same. I just couldn’t shake the similarities. I’m still undecided on reading the books. Thankfully our library has them to lend. We’ll see.
