Aislinn | 4 comments urgghh.. they changed so many things.. darn. dionysius and ares are not even on it.. the Oracle's not there also.. and isn't annabeth supposed to like Luke at that time.. there's also no threat from Kronos rising to power..
there's really a lot of things missing and a lot of things changed..

i love the scene with medusa though.. hahah..
i guess it's okay.. for the effects and all..

Ronna (ronna15) | 2 comments That was a pretty awesome movie! I wanna watch it again. Here's a more detailed analysis of what I thought of the movie. Let's start with the bad parts so you can enjoy the good parts later.

*Warning:Spoilers!

The little quirks that bugged me but I could live without:

1. I wished they'd elaborated more on the camp houses. I really enjoyed that detailed part in the book.

2. They could have mentioned Thalia. And Luke, Annabeth and Thalia's relationship with each other. I think they should have made Annabeth closer to Luke.

3. No Oracle?

4. The Law. They should have sticked with "The Big Three can't have children" rather than "The gods cant see their children".

5.Was really looking forward to that Orange Camp Half Blood Tee. And Annabeth's baseball cap. I hope this show ups in the next.

6. 600th floor. I really thought they were gonna add this cause it was in the trailer. But I guess they cut it out. I hope they show it in the next.

7. Annabeth is a little under-introduced. I feel like she just stepped in with Percy and Grover's relationship.

The quirks that bugged me big time.

8.Clarisse, Ares, and Dionysus anyone? I think the movie needs these bullies to shake things up.

9. Hades is not mean. He's actually my fave. god cause you wouldn't expect him not to want war.

10. They should have mentioned Kronos' return.

11. Procphecy please!!

Ok, I know that's a lot, but how about what I did like?

The really awesome stuff

1. I just absolutely love the Medusa scene. I loved that there's this woman who's about to be turned into stone. We can really see Medusa in action. I love the setting of the place. The production designer is genius. It's even better than what I imagined.

2. I love Camp Half Blood. I love the whole feel to it. I think it's actually better than the book, cause in the book it feels so, well, camp. In the movie it feels more like a Greek battle/training ground. The entrance to the camp is awesome too.

3. Catch the Flag was pretty fun. I like that Annabeth really did cut Percy. I was pretty surprised, but then again, they're training to stay alive.

4. I love Logan Lerman(Percy), also the other actors too, like Uma Therman. But mostly Percy, cause he's so real. He reacts like most people would when they were attacked by a Fury. They'd go "Did that just happened?!I'm going crazy. . ." Like Percy said. ;D

5. I actually liked the plot change, with the pearls and all. I know, I know, it's not like the book. But this is a movie. And it's really good. I like they made this a quest with a goal. You know what I mean? Like, it's not just go to L.A. and we encounter this obstacles along the way. I mean, don't get me wrong! I love that in the book. But for a movie, it's more purpose on why they're going there in every scene, not just an obstacle we happen to walk through.

6. I liked that the ending is pretty closed. And yes, I just heard you cuss me for saying that, so hear me out. The reason I liked that it's close is because it's not a done deal that there's gonna be a second movie. It all depends on if a movie does well. I mean, I remember when I watched The Golden Compass and they left the ending open, but there wasn't any sequel cause the movie didn't do well. It's more disappointing for me when a movie is unfinnished and there isn't gonna be a sequel. Especially if it's a series like Percy Jackson that I know would be awesome for a movie. So yeah. That's Columbus' style. If you recall Harry Potter 1, he left it a closed ending too. Hope PJ does well as HP. ;D

7. I love the flying shoes. They're soo cute and cool. It's totally Riordan's style. Mixing the modern with the ancient.

8. I am in LOVE with the production designer of this movie. Have you seen the Underworld, and Hades' house, and Olympus, and Camp Half-Blood?! It's pretty kickass.

9. I like how Percy is just hanging out there underwater. Pretty cool.

10. I love the Lotus Casino Hotel scene. Especially when they just ate the Lotus Flower. It's like they were high. Hilarious!! ;D

11. I love the one liners. It's HILARIOUS!
Grover:"Burning money when we're in a recession!"
Grover:"You can't kill them Annabeth! Those are good hard-working Americans!"

12. I love that they kept the closeness of Percy and his mom. I really appreciated Columbus for doing that cause it's a pretty important part.

13. I love the Percy and Luke battle scene. Talk about awesome.

14. The visual effects are beyond words. How cool is that?

So, that being said. All-in-all, it's a good movie. Really good actually. Is it as good as the book? No, of course not. No movie is. Is it an awesome movie? Heck yeah! It's very fun, active, entertaining, and funny. I love this adaptation to the book.

I don't mind the age difference cause, c'mon, does Percy sound like a 12yr. old in the book? Heck no! If I hadn't read he was 12, I would've totally thought he was 15 or something.

Again, all-in-all, great movie! Not as great as the book, but still completely awesome none the less. Don't let your biasness of the book, ruin your chances of enjoying a great, well constructed movie. I really hope this pulls through so they can go on with Sea of Monsters.

Hope you enjoy the movie guys! ;D

Ellyce i think the movie was great! but im dissapointed in it. i expected it to have parts of it exactly like the book, but they didn't. it seemed like they tried to combine all the books into one movie...it had good humor and effects.i was surprised at the music and loved the movie as a personwho hasn't read the books, but as a fan i am upset!


message 18: by Molly (new)

Molly (daleksinwonderland) | 207 comments Wait, was Thalia even in it at all? That was a great review!

I totally agreed. i watched it with my friend & my sister I kept sayin that wasn't in the book.That wasn't in the book. That wasn't in the book. They were getting mad so I shut up. I was really disapointed. BUt on the plus side Luke was very hot.


message 23: by Sydney (new)

Sydney | 107 comments i didnt think the lotus hotel would be like that

haha. I wanted to hate Luke but it was so0o0o0 hard. Everytime he appeared I was like YUM!!!
Plus i sort of agree with him. I understand why he's mad.


message 27: by Brianne (last edited Feb 14, 2010 03:15PM) (new)

Brianne (iliketoreadbooks) | 42 comments ya, was okay. I missed the lack of the gods being themselves. Luke, Poseidon not wearing his Hawaiian shirt and shorts. Then I was really weirded out by the whole you can't see your children/poseidon was with sally and percy for seven months, and luke and annabeth had never met their parents.

i don't know how they're going to make a sequel. this movie was eragonish.


message 28: by Amber (new)

Amber I was upset they did not really stick to he book! SO many things were changed or cut out! but it was a really good movie

Alexandra Daddario scuks


message 35: by Molly (new)

Molly (daleksinwonderland) | 207 comments I just got back from seeing it, and it was EPIC!

Best Lines:
Charon: The living are not permitted here. Die, then come back later.
Grover: Dude, I'm not going to DIE then come back later!

Annabeth: Guys, we're not here to have fun. (eats flower) I just remembered why we're here...to have fun! (giggles)

Best Scenes:
Lotus Casino (Lol!)
Capture the Flag (Epic!)

Comments on the Actors:
Logan Lerman: Wow, he was great! He's the perfect Percy. Also, seeing him giggle = priceless XD
Alexandra Daddario: I thought I wouldn't like her, but she was actually a good Annabeth. She is so pretty and has a beautiful smile. Some of the scenes I liked her in were the Capture the Flag scene and when Percy first saw her (she kicks a**!), the scene with Medusa, and the scene at the hotel when Percy's in the pool. HOWEVER, I didn't like her in the scene with the hydra.
Brandon T. Jackson: I didn't think he was going to be good either, but he was great as Grover. He was so funny.
Sally Jackson (I don't know the actress's name): She was good and she had that tired look, but I think she was too old looking.

The Things They Changed:
I only had issues with a few: No Thalia? No Ares? No epic capture the flag scene with Clarisse and the water (I know they still had it, but it was missing Clarisse)? No shoes that fly to Tartarus? AND most importantly...what happened to the Arch scene? THAT WAS EPIC! But other than those, it was fine.

But the movie was EPIC!


message 39: by Tigerlily (new)

Tigerlily | 26 comments One of my friends that I saw it with was ultimately annoyed that Annabeth never ONCE called Percy Seaweed Brain. Thought that Percy and Luke were hot. But I missed Kronos.And Ares. And Clarisse. ect. I mean seriously? There wasn't even a poodle giving directions! (chapter 12!) The medusa scene was cool though, along with the Lotus hotel, but it could have been a little more...appropriate? I mean I saw, like, 3rd graders there!

Jill Dewitt (jilldewitt) | 1 comments For purists, the movie was horrible. The plot deviated too far from the book. Many characters were left out, and the age of the characters was laughable.
If you had not read the book, the movie as a stand alone, was a fun ride.
