    The term 'amalgamation' pertains to a combination of two or more. This is a personal blog which is a combination of musings of my activities, thoughts, inspirations, ideas, and everything that happens around me.

  • Be inspired, have peace of mind


    As a personal blog, there are articles written not just for the sole intention of writing but are also directed to share experiences to uplift and inspire the downtrodden.

  • Love, love, love


    There's beauty in everything. Be filled with love as you listen to love songs you may want to sing along with.

  • Tragedies and Disasters


    Life isn't always about fun and happiness. Get a glimpse of me as I speak my mind about tragedies, disasters, and pains.

  • Hope


    Life won't have meaning if everyone turns blind and start to see no hope. There is always hope, just waiting to be lit. Read through articles filled with hope.

  • Movies and so much more!


    Occasionally, I'm inclined to write reviews for movies, places, restos, or just about anything. Watch out for those cutting remarks! =)

  • Journey


    Hey, life's a journey. What better way to immortalize oneself than through writing?

Plot Summary:Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief is a film adaptation of the first book on Percy Jackson & the Olympians novel franchise written by Rick Riordan with the same title. It tells the tale of a teenage boy named Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) who discovered that he is a demi-god son of Poseidon (Kevin McKidd), god of the Sea. Zeus (Sean Bean) accused him of stealing the most powerful weapon of the gods, the lightning bolt. Percy is forced to embark on a cross-country adventure to save his mom, catch the lightning thief, and return the bolt to Zeus to prevent a destructive war of the gods.

Holding his trident made out of water.

My Review: Alright, so maybe I wasn't completely happy with the movie. But, I like it. I had a few issues with the sharp progression. I felt I wanted to get to know the characters a little bit more but because of its fast pace, I felt the movie was rushed.

The special effects were astounding. Medusa's role, portrayed by Uma Thurman also stood out for me. She provided a sultry performance which was frightening and funny at the same time.

Medusa caught unguarded.

I can't say Logan's performance was impeccable all throughout. But I feel he's only going to get better after this. There's a matinee idol brewing in there.

Battling the 4-headed hydra.

To sum it up, it's a good movie. Despite the "poor adaptation of the book to film," as others would say, I still find it very enjoyable to watch. Chris Columbus accomplished another great film.

Just like any other "book to film" adaptations, I would not recommend reading the book first before watching the movie, so as not to get disappointed.

Watch the movie first before reading the book!
