Saw some reviews regarding The sea of monsters, well, I can only say I'm not surprised that it is dreadful.. However, I am not going to bash on it, after all, I'm not going to watch it, so I kinda have no right to do so. But what I wanted to share with you, is my annoyance towards Rick Riordan (I know know, how dare I). The thing is, and don't get me wrong, I love Rick Riordan and, quite obviously, his work, but throughout all these years, when great books were adapted into movies, I have watched many interviews with authors of such books. Say, for example, JK Rowling, or George RR Martin (yes, that heartless brilliant bastard!!). Both of them talked how they dreaded selling the rights and allowing movie adaptations. Im absolutely sure that they were offered a lot of money by many companies, buy they sold the rights only to people that they trusted (their babies to, as many authors like to describe their books) to do a good job, and, not surprisingly, it is so, both HP movies and GoT series are brilliant. Riordan, on the other hand, sold the rights 5 years before the Lightning Thief was published, again, I can understand the reason, the book, because of that, had been selling better and everything, and of course I do not know his financial situation at that time, maybe it was necessary for him. But it just angers me that one of the best book series has the worst movie adaptations. Seriously, for me PJO movies are as bad as the Last Airbender movie (yes i hate them that much, at least the 1st one).
Sorry for this rant, I guess deep deep inside (like tartarus deep) I cherished a glimmer of hope that this PJ movie wouldn't suck (I know, silly me).
I will still dream that one day someone will make a PJO animated series with burdge as the head animator
