    Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief

    ★½

    If you haven't read the book this is based on, it's just a bad movie with sometimes cheesy computer effects and bland characters woodenly delivering their lines.

    IF you have read the book this is based on, it's an incredible insolence to the source material. I totally understand the plot of the novel had to be condensed into two hours screen time, but THIS is just dumb and lazy and totally misguided.

    The film is gorgeous to look at and Emmet Walsh and FMcD are amazingly intense. So far so good. The flick itself starts out pretty strong but lost me after about 40 minutes, when Ray sets foot into the bar. I just felt the Coens didn't do the most of their characters (like, Samm-Art Williams was nicely introduced and subsequently hopelessly underused) and situations. But as far as look and style go, this is one hell of a début!

    Von daher:
    Wenn ihr keine rechten Spinner seid: schaut diesen Film.
    Wenn ihr rechte Spinner seid: fickt euch.

    ★★★★½

    Watched an early press screening.

    What can I say? RO gets most of all the stuff right that TFA screwed up. Its original, tense and not nearly as filled with plot holes. Although, to be fair: this is another kind of movie. ROGUE ONE is not a movie about good or bad, heroes and villains. All of this films "heroes" are painted in an awesome greyish color, which has one giant plus to it: they feel real.

    It is the…
