They are much better because you get to see what's happening.

Yes, Kieran, but I love picturing it. You haven't actually read the books. If you had, you would realise,
-Annabeth's hair is actually brown.
-The quest wasn't to FIND the PEARLS, it was to GET to the UNDERWORLD.

There are loads of mistakes in the films; you should watch the CinemaSins version of Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Lightning Thief.

And also: What happened to the title? It was originally just Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief, what's all that about the Olympians? It's four syllables longer than needed.

The God Ares played a major part in the books, yet in the films he was barely shown. What happened to the Double Stuf Oreos, huh?

Well i see where your coming from but they can't make the films the same as the books or the films would be 4 hours long !

Yes, but they don't have to change the WHOLE PLOT!! They could've died Annabeth's hair or given her a wig! It's not hard!

And if they didn't want the films to be four hours long, then fine! Skip the Lotus Casino! That wasn't that important! Neither was that stupid Parthenon thing that they put in the films! That wasn't in the books!

I know but the books are old the film gave the books a modern twist there was not a rule that they had to be the same of the books I rest my case.

It's not THAT old; only June 2005! And the reason they don't use cell phones and things like that because it sends a signal for monsters!

But, Kieran, you'd know that if you'd read the books!
