The Next Harry Potter? – “Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief”

This is one of so-called “blockbuster” movies – Don’t expect too much in the storyline, acting or more complicated things, just enjoy the show. Most ppl will draw the wallet once they read the line of “from the creators of ‘Harry Potter’” on the poster.

Actually I have more knowledge in Greek mythology than “Harry Potter” – cuz I never read the original novels of the latter… So when I saw the three teens entered the “sculpture garden”, I knew that was the dungeon of Medusa. Here the writers are quite loyal to the myths – Percy killed Medusa by cutting off her head, just like his namesake Perseus did in “real myth”. Even the idea of “mirror” remained the same – Perseus used a shielf (given by Athena), while Percy used a more “modern” weapon. 

The “bad boy” Luke by Jake Abel looks more shining than the leading actor sometimes… He ended up in the Hudson River just because he didn’t have a “Big Three” father… Fortunately we will have him back in the sequel, “The Sea of Monsters”.



Another surprise in this movie is to see some actors/actresses of my flavor – Pierce Brosnan proved that he can be a good supporting role too; Kevin McKidd from “Grey’s Anatomy” is one of my recent favorites, and happy to see him as a powerful yet gentle Poseidon here; and Melina Kanakaredes from “CSI:NY” finally got a chance to portrait a real Greek beauty (named “Athena”) after her not-so-successful trial in the hot TV series several months ago (btw I heard that she wrote the story of that ep by herself… no wonder all of a sudden Mike was so attracted by her…), pity she didn’t get a chance to show off her language ability.
It is said that this series will be the next “Harry Potter”. Well, let’s see…

Always keep in mind when trying new hair treatments that what is right for someone else may not achieve the
same results for you. Coconut oil has amazing properties for fighting both
internal and external yeast infections. Use the gel extracted from Aloe Vera leaves to
apply on the scalp and hair strands.
