Lemony Snicket's A Series of Unfortunate Events

There wasn't much plot in this movie and what there was could be seen coming many minutes away. However, the settings and costumes were great, the child actors were attractive, and I loved the art in the opening and closing. The adult actors were fabulous.

Three children have their house burn down and their parents die inside. They're given to an evil man they're not really related to, Count Olaf, whose entire purpose is to kill them in such a way that he can't be blamed, so he can get their fortune. After the children prove that he is unsuitable, the government gives them to other people, also not really related, and Count Olaf comes after the kids and the new guardians. I hope the books have better plot. The visuals and the acting, though, were really excellent.
