Just watched: Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

17 May

We watched Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief the other night. I happen to love both Sean Bean and Kevin McKidd, so it was great to see them as Zeus and Poseidon. It was a fun teenaged action adventure movie that we both enjoyed very much.

However, it did get my husband started on a rant about the tropes used in young adult literature. I didn’t have the same problem as I felt the story was meant as an introduction to Greek mythology, not something aimed at those of us who have been studying it for 20 years.
