year 3 day 117

movie: Percy Jackson and the Sea Monsters
starring: Logan Lerman, Douglas Smith
genre: Action, Adventure, Fantasy
format: Netflix Canada

plot: In order to save their home, Percy and his friends are sent on a quest to find the golden fleece. But someone else has already stolen it and plans to awaken Kronos.

Based on the book

Second movie in the series.  I'm sort of neutral on this one.  I loved that Anthony Stewart Head (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) and Stanley Tucci are in this, even if they only have seven minutes of air time.
It's almost like the film gets lost in itself, thinking of the setting first and the story second. There are a few characters that seemed out of place compared to the first movie, such as the satyr, and the god Hermes. It's almost as if their storylines were chopped in half.
And the line about the zombies who gave their lives for Ares...funny but again, felt like there should have been more to it. 

Big lessons...believe in yourself, have faith that you're on the path meant for you, and always remember team work might get you half way or it might get you there and back.
