Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief



Trouble-prone teen Percy Jackson is about to kicked out of school – but that’s the least of his problems.

It's Yorkshire in 1974, and fear, mistrust and institutionalised police corruption are running riot. Rookie journalist Eddie Dunford is determined to search for the truth in an increasingly complex maze of lies and deceit surrounding the police investigation into a series of child abductions.

When young Clare Kemplay goes missing, Eddie and his colleague, Barry, persuade their editor to let them investigate links with two similar abductions in the last decade.

But after a mutilated body is found on a construction site owned by a local property magnate, Eddie and Barry are drawn into a deadly world of secrecy, intimidation, shocking revelations and police brutality.

Lightning Thief - I just finished the book.

Valentine's Day - what a cast. I would like to see it, but not sure how quickly.

Yes, talk about a stellar cast in Valentine's Day! I don't think I'll see that one in a theater, but I think I'll have to see it sometime, if only for the cast.


The Wolfman looks pretty good to me - I like Anthony Hopkins and I like that genre.

I want to see both Wolfman and Valentine's Day, but I will probably wait for them on DVD.
