I watched Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief for the first time today. It’s a decent movie. The characters (and their actors) are cool, and I do enjoy the Greek mythology tied into modern day. I didn’t particularly find it suspenseful, and the denouement isn’t really fulfilling. And the Greek gods (especially Zeus and even Hades) are even more dickish for no good reason than usual. Still, I appreciate the fantasy aspects, probably thanks to a lot of Dungeons and Dragons I’ve been playing recently.
