Haven't read the books, but I'll give this flick a shot.
I like this because I know a lot about greek mythology and this takes all those classic tales of the supernatural and presents them in a modern light!
Can anyone help me with my addiction to pain killers diluted in strong liquor?

Competing for Twilight's fan base? Gross.
On the plus side, it would have to work really hard to be worse then Twilight.
I've read the books, and they are very good actually. I don't know how I feel about this trailer. It makes it look really bad.

My favorite part was at 0:58 where they show the title of two Harry Potter films.
At :30 his friend takes a picture of statue tits.
With an iPod.
Then at the end, Percy's using an ipod to kill the Medusa.
I can't wait until the end, when the law-fat taste of Subway sandwiches defeats Hades, and the gods celebrate by switching to T-Mobile.
Poseidon is the gayest of the greek gods. And those guys were FAH-LAAAAAMING. Also, the pen, you see, turns into a sword. Brilliant.
"I got the bus ticket. I AM LEAVING THIS PICTURE BEFORE I FIND THE RAZOR AND DO SOMETHING REGRETTABLE!"
Percy Jackson was the most unpopular kid in school, until one day...
Saw the books on a shelf at Target.
This is exactly how I imagined it - bland and grasping.
"This is a pen."
"THIS IS A PEN."
PERCY JACKSON TEACHES JAPANESE KIDS ENGLISH.
I will see this if Zeus transforms into a swan and fucks Rosario Dawson.
The infantilization of American pop culture marches on.

That sound was Edith Hamilton turning over in her grave. Also, this is doubly hilarious because my best friend recommended this to me on my goodreads list. I think I would rather read graffiti.
I'm a little suspicious of all you PoETV movie critics. I'm willing to bet that 80 percent of you who shat on the Avatar trailer went to see it.
That said, I'll admit right now that this movie looks to me like a fun enough distraction for a Saturday morning, and YES, I will likely pay money to see it.
I'm so edgy.
Is this one of those books written for retarded kids that adults like?
See, I saw the posters and promos and thought Percy Jackson and the Olympians was a band, and they had a new album coming out. 'Cause seriously, "Percy Jackson and the Olympians" sounds like a bad-ass Motown-era soul outfit.
