My enchanted movie pick for this week is Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief. My kids like this movie because it has a good storyline and they are fond of Greek Mythology.
When his lightning bolt is stolen, Zeus accuses Poseidon’s son Percy Jackson and gives Poseidon fourteen days to return it, otherwise he will initiate a war against his brother. Meanwhile the teenager, Percy, who is dyslexic and has ADHD is visiting The Museum of Metropolitan of Art and is attacked by a Fury disguised in his teacher. His crippled best friend Grover reveals that Percy is a demigod and that he is his protector and his teacher Mr Brunner gives him a pen telling him that it is a powerful weapon. They go to Percy’s house and together with his mother Sally they drive to the Camp Half-Blood. However Sally is attacked by a Minotaur and vanishes before Percy can help her. In the camp, Percy befriends the gorgeous Annabeth; when they are attacked by Hades who wants the lighting bolt for himself, Percy discovers that his mother is in Hell with Hades. Percy decides to travel on a dangerous quest to retrieve the lightning bolt and save his mother. – Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

My entry for Marce Kikamz’
This week’s TCP theme features the versatile actor Robin Williams. I picked One Hour Photo for my entry. Williams portrays an offbeat character in this movie which is a far cry from the usual role he usually play. Find out more about this movie through this storyline I borrowed from imdb.com.
Middle aged Sy Parrish works as a technician at a one hour photo lab located in a SavMart store in a suburban mall. Sy is a lonely man, never having had any friends. He knows much about his customers through the photographs they have developed. But he knows more about the Yorkin family – specifically Nina Yorkin and her adolescent son Jake Yorkin, the two in the family who drop off and pick up the family’s photofinishing – than anyone else, the family about who he is obsessed. Nina’s husband, Will Yorkin, is incidental to his obsession since Sy has only seen him in photographs. Sy’s obsession includes fantasizing about being their favorite “Uncle Sy”. He has even been making an extra set of prints for himself of all of their photographs since Jake was a newborn. After an incident at work and after Sy finds out more about the family through a set of photographs, he decides to right the injustices he sees in the only way he knows how. His actions demonstrate his true mental state. Written by Huggo
