Thinking about it...Never finished the book(lost it during road trip somehow), but it may be mindless fun if nothing else(Plus Im sucker for mythology)

Really though Im a bit more intrested in seeing The Wolfman remake, hope thats good. Id heard about it last year, but it just popped up on my radar.

Came back from it just now.

Personally, I rather liked it. It stayed period(1890's) which was probably a smart move. Werewolf design(fairly important part of a monster movie in my opinion) was true to the original,not what I prefer, but pretty good especially the transformation. Scares were enough to freak the group I was with:fast and hard. Pretty gory, no discression shots...but then again, its a werewolf movie. A couple changes/additions from the original for extra exitment(quite a few are spoilers so I wont say em) but they were done well.

I just watched Ong Bak 2. Tony Jaa is the new Bruce Lee. I don't say this lightly. It's time for Jet Li and Jackie Chan to pass the torch. This kid is beyond amazing. I highly suggest you rent Ong Bak 1, 2 and the Protector. Ong Bak 3 is coming soon. I've already seen the preview.

Marrese Crump for that matter too. Move over action world.

The Lighting Thief was horrible! Grover was never a stud. Where was Clarisse? Why did they have to have Luke playing CODMW2? Why did he give Percy the shoes? If I remember it was Hermes who gave him those shoes on a beach. Percy and Annabeth never fought like that. During capture the flag they were on teams.

How did Luke steal the Lighting Bolt in the first place? Sure, he was the son of Hermes, but there is no chance in hell that you can go to Olympus and steal Zeus's lighting.

Everything was terrible about that movie. Hollywood has ruined another.

Twlight had a way better story. At least the director of that movie, read the book's. I mean yeah, you will not be able to fit everything into a movie, but at least get the characters and READ THE BOOK!

Just please go see the movie, and admit that Twlight the movie was way better then Percy Jackson the movie. :D

I heard Percy Jackson completely re-wrote the book. Seriously, someone find Rick Riordan and give him Alan Moore's address. Those two can talk about how much Hollywood sucks.

Still, worse than Twilight?

I was forced to watch Twilight on a long car ride (I was tied down, drugged, and had my eyelids stapled open), and I don't think I'll ever be the same again. Was there any point to the baseball scene? Is it romantic to stalk someone? Why am I asking these questions?!

Anyways, I haven't seen Percy, but it can't be worse than Twilight. Or can it?

It wasn't. They changed a lot but in my eyes I could over look most of it except for the following four things

Annabeth didn't have a crush on Luke, she actually fights him at one point. They didn't mention Pan at all, which takes away Grover's story. Chronos seemed to have nothing to do with anything, which by taking him out of the picture also removed Aries leaving Luke to have stole the bolt on his own. And finally they left out the great prophecy which takes out the main plot and ominous feel to the story.

That's pretty much the sum of what I didn't like about it. But no, Twilight was not better.

I will. I'm very glad that it is not done by Rob Zombie. I liked The Jason remake and The Texas Chainsaw Massacre remake so I shall see this one. I hope they do a Hellraiser one as well.

Sandra Bullock won best and worst actress the same year - that's gotta be a first. I wonder if she accepted both awards in person.

No. I saw Twilight before I saw DBE, and if you recall I was trying to defend DBE for some time until I regained my senses. That's pretty *vulgarity*ing bad.
