The Lightning Thief
I suggested The Lightning Thief, a kid's movie but what looked like a cool diversion. I wasn't in the mood for anything heavy and it looked like it had some nice special effects.
It was pretty good, with your basic adolescent plot line. Uma Thurman is great as Medusa and Pierce Brosnan a centaur. Sort of Narnia meets Harry Potter.
Won't belabor the whole plot but it moved forward quickly and had its moments.
The central protagonists find themselves at the Lotus Casino in Las Vegas, a soma filled playground where people get trapped in a never ending party for eternity. Trapped, tripped, it was a very cool scene.
