Percy Jackson and the Olympians

Guess where I'm going to be on February 12! Percy Jackson and the Olympians is coming out in two weeks and I'm so excited! The cast looks really good (except for the girl who plays Annabeth and her tragic lack of a forehead) and it was directed by Chris Columbus, the director of the first two Harry Potter movies (which were, by far, the best). You can check out all the info by click this link. Here's the newest trailer!



    You know, a lot of people can get really picky about movies based on books, I'm definitely not one of those people. The movie isn't supposed to be exactly like the book because of the most obvious reason--it's not a book, it's a movie. I'm sure that in Percy Jackson, some stuff will be taken out and some stuff will be added but as long as it sticks close to the story, I don't really have a problem with that. But that's just me.
       How do you feel about movies based on books? Which movie based on a book was your favorite? Least favorite? I want to hear from you!

Oh my gosh! I'm soo excited about this movie!! I loved the books! Most on the time, I find that the books are way better then the movie. Only once did I think the movie was better and that was with A Walk to Remember...

I try not to be too picky, but when I see the movie, it seems like all the quirky little anecdotes that I loved were taken out and it depresses me. I def agree that HP 1&2 were the best. The Goblet of Fire is good, too.

I cannot wait for The Giver and The Hunger Games movies.

I can't wait to watch it!!!! I'm so excited - I'm the only person who actually think it looks cool in my family. :( Well, whatever. LOL

I agree with Sarah though, I think the books are WAY better than the movies. :) That's how it goes.

I love to watch movies based on books, because you get to see the people in your head come to life = )There's only been one total, horror film full of poo, and that was Eragon. Aside from that, I've never had major problems = )
