Recently during the Summer, I started to indulge myself into books turning into movies – I was extremely lucky to actually get both Percy Jackson movies around the same time. ^_^ Since Lupe is an avid movie person herself, we thought it would be a great idea to start discussing not just books, but movies as well.
The Lightning Thief + Sea of Monsters Movie Discussion
Lupe (@CatchingBookz): ok so many people did complain about anabeths hair from the first movie. I actually liker her with dark hair than blonde
Sophia: The director did change it to blonde though. Probably to follow the book as close as possible without doing too much damage
Lupe: I have not seen the first one in a while. i have seen the new one recently again.
Sophia: I watched both pretty close to each other. I think I must have gotten lucky or something. Chiron changed! Like.. a lot.
Lupe: probably because people these days dont appreciate that they actually turned this into a movie these days. it makes me mad! I like both movies to be honest. They were good. remember I have not read the entire series since the 6th grade
Sophia: High expectations. What'd you expect? I do like the visual elements/special effects to it though. The characters were pretty good. I did want to see Clarisse dumping Percy's head in a toilet though! That was one of the funniest moments in the book. Anyhoo, I haven't either. I think I read most of the series in 6th grade, but I didn't finish until around early 8th grade. By the way, the discussion is breaking into 2 threads. o_o
Lupe: I just like the humor man. The action was really good. 2 threads? ok let's go back to one thread
Sophia: Ooo! Favorite character. I just love Grover! Oh, by the way, I loved the ending to The Lightning Thief were Gabe is basically turned into stone. That wasn't in the book, but I loved it. :D
Lupe: hahaha i dont remember what happened in the book. HAHAHA you got a better memory than me or u just took the time to reread. idk I really didnt like uh clarissa or watever her name is. She was annoying not until the end tho. I like the cyclops :D
Sophia: I swear, I didn't even reread. I read The Mark of Athena, but that's an entirely different series, old sport. Uh... which cyclops?
Lupe: yup you do have a better memory than I do. Its been so long since I have read this series. I should do a reread
Sophia: I DON'T. What did I learn in Algebra II? HELP, KAHLAN, HELP!!! She's busy doing AP Gov. *pokes* >_<
Lupe: the only nice cyclops there is. Percy's bro? who else would i be talking about?
Sophia: If you have a weird brain, it might be Polyphemus. o_o
Lupe: uh no. I dont even remember who that is. I'm telling you, I'm forgetting everything at the moment but that was not the person i was talking about
Sophia: I officially don't know you o_o
Sophia: anyways... back to conversation. What do you think of Brandon T. Jackson acting like a girl in disguise to full Polyphemus?
Lupe: it was funny! It was also very smart of him to do that in order to trick that cyclops!
Sophia: I thought the Bad Bull part was hilarious
Lupe: really? that part? i like the part where that chick was ordering those zombies (if i remember correctly) to move the ship
Sophia: I thought you hated Clarisse :p
Lupe: so? but that scene was funny
Sophia: I need a backstage pass to the inner workings of your brain. I have no clue how that's funny unless you find everything funny. O_O
Lupe: It was funny. U need to go rewatch that scene :)
Sophia: But... but! I've already returned it! It's a Bestseller!
Sophia: At least... it is. According to our library.
Lupe: C'mon those zombies look awesome :) but not as cool as #thewalkingdead zombies.
Lupe: :0 you did not just say that.
Sophia: Fun. I get to do a victory dance. (Admit it. The panda is awesome)
Sophia: I suppose that means I don't need to polish my skills. Tiger Woods agrees.
Lupe: Lol wow. So which do like better? The first or the second?
