The Lightning Thief

Brunch with the Swans and then we all decided to go out and see a movie. Jim took some prodding as he had some car races to watch from europe.

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.

If you want to take in a movie, you might want to take the kiddies to this one.

It was an entertaining movie...
actually enjoyed it and the Hot Tamales
The Best Director, Kathryn Bigelow, directed Hurt Locker not Avitar as I suggested.
BTW, the race was a Grand Am from
Miami not Europe. The F1 season starts next Sunday in Bahrain.
