Quotes

Percy Jackson: I never called him brother... all he ever wanted was a brother but... I was too wrapped up in myself. And now Luke has the fleece... because I gave it to him. I destroy Olympus... Just like the Oracle said.
Annabeth: Forget the oracle! Your worried about your destiny, then write a new one. You're angry at Poseidon for ignoring you, then show him why he shouldn't. You're upset about Tyson, make sure he didn't die for nothing.
Clarisse: She's right.
Annabeth: What?
Clarisse: There's no way you're getting me to repeat that.

Hoping for the next movie
10 August 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

I love the Percy Jackson books, it's one of my favourite book series. Thought the first film was alright, but a mediocre version of the books. When I heard that there was going to be a second one, I was very skeptical that it would work considering the number of bad changes they've done to the Lightning Thief.

But once I learned that screen writers Scott Alexander & Larry Karaszewski were hired to adapt it (who aren't credited for some reason), I began to feel hopeful for the Sea of Monsters. Alexander and Karaszewski had previously worked on the bio-pics Ed Wood, The People vs. Larry Flynt, and Man on the Moon. I thought that they'd look up the books and do justice to Percy Jackson.

Just came back from seeing it and I really like it, thought it was better than The Lightning Thief. I didn't think that it was a great film, some of the dialogue felt awkward to me, but overall I had fun and felt some justice was done. Yes, there was some changes made to the Sea of Monsters but nothing as bad as the previous film. I enjoyed watching Stanley Tucci (Mr. D), Anthony Stewart Head (Chiron), and Ron Perlman (Polyphemus).

Definitely see it if you like the books. Now I'm hoping to see the next films in the series!
