When in the Parthenon Museum, Annabeth (Alexandra Daddario) begins telling Percy (Logan Lerman) a story about her mother, Athena. The story she tells, is the Greek myth about how the capital city Athens got its name. The citizens of the city were arguing over which god, after whom to name the city. The two choices were Athena and Poseidon, Percy's father. Both agreed that they would bestow a gift onto the town, and whichever gift was deemed more useful, that giver would have the town named after him or her. Poseidon stuck his trident into the ground, and created a spring, from which the townspeople could use the water. Unfortunately, the water turned out to be too salty, and therefore useless. Athena presented a single olive tree. The people realized the tree had many uses: Its fruit for eating, its wood for building and burning, the oil from its fruit for cooking, and for bathing, and the pits of the olives could be planted, therefore bringing up more olive trees. The people agreed the olive tree was more useful, and therefore named the city "Athens", in honor of Athena. See more »

Here's the deal. I read the first book, I'm currently reading the second... I loved the books, the imagination, the way it ties the mythology with the 21st century, all great. Now, the movie... the only thing I really have to say is PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE give me back the 2 hours you just unmercifully wasted in my life. I saw this flick with my fiancé on Valentine's Day, my pick. It was so bad even I nearly fell asleep. They changed major plot lines in the book, took out some of the characters that I really wanted to see, added a few that didn't exist in the book, and it was overall just kind of boring. Big effects don't do enough to keep me awake when I was really looking forward to knowing what would happen next in the movie and how it would be made. Instead I just sit there mindless, wondering if it wasn't too late to sneak into Avatar instead. If there is a movie made from the other books in the series... I'll probably download it online, but I won't spend money to see it. Huge, huge disappointment.
