Am I the only one who read the books that is kind of offended by the first movie The Lightning Thief? I know movies are always different and require some changes, but they changed tons of things even when there was no need to change them. My biggest pet peeve is probably the part where they say Zeus supposedly decided the Gods can’t have physical contact with their children, instead of the actual pact between the big three that was in the book. What is the point of just randomly changing that stuff? They didn’t include major characters. They changed the camp. They completely changed Annabeth, Poseidon and Grover’s appearances and personalities. Even Percy’s personality was somewhat changed. They made all of the characters the ages that they would be in the final book, not the first. I know it’s only a kid’s story and wasn’t really a literary masterpiece, but I was awfully fond of the books and to see them make movies of it that have no respect for the books is irritating.
