percy jackson & the olympians: the lightning thief

150 150 *pradt

percy jackson is a young boy who just discovers that he is actually a demigod, half human and half god. his father is poseidon, one of the greatest three (zeus, hades, and poseidon). he has 14 days to return the almighty weapon master bolt as zeus believes that percy jackson is the thief. if percy fails to do so, there will be an apocalyptic battle between gods and all human will perish.

the film is an adaptation of the lightning thief, the first novel in the percy jackson & the olympians series by rick riordan. the director chris columbus did an average job turning the novel into somewhat entertaining fantasy film with good special effects. the plot is kind of shallow but i did enjoy watching this film. since i am always fond of ancient greek mythology, this film makes me want to read the whole series of percy jackson.

  • im not sure if you only check out big budget flims or not.

    but check out valentine’s day.

  • @deast
    valentine’s day… the gathering of stars? rottentomatoes rated valentine’s day 16% which means it’s crap. may be i should watch that and rant for one page. and yes i only watch action films with big budget in cinema because my tv cannot deliver such powerful experience. unlike drama/romantic flicks, i could watch that while i’m eating or even in bed. lol

  • No mate. believe me it doesn’t matter what types of flick you watch, in cinema is still absolutely better than on telly.

    PS. I don’t follow critics. I follow my tastes and my brain mate

  • @deast
    that’s good for you, my dear. i don’t believe in critique but rottentomatoe is my idol. i have tested so many times to go and watch movies that they rated lower than 25% (without checking the rating before watching). the results are pretty clear that my taste is quite similar to them. although i don’t always agree with their high rated films, at least they did a good job screening films for me so i don’t have to waste my time.

    just met my friend yesterday, she said valentine’s day is love actually wannabe, but it fell short.

    p.s. i agree that cinema better than telly, but i hate those annoying people with phone ringing, chitchat, and kids who are unable to control themselves.

  • Mate, i do not think it is “Love Actually Wannabe”, the stories are difference to each other but I do not want to argue with you. perhaps it is time for you to leave critics behind then go watch and rate it on your page…

    By the way, on that night there was one couple, a girl was so proud of her blackberry. I guess she has just got a new one, she always touched, phoned and played it since the film started until it ended. If my company does not force me to use blackberry for work, I am going to destroy it ASAP.
