This is a new weekly feature every Sunday that highlights all the movies I’ve seen while I’m on “Holiday”*. Except when I forget and post it Monday…
Percy Jackson (Logan Lerman) gets accused of stealing Sean Bean’s lightning. Once he realises he’s the son of a god, he begins to embark on the journey that will take him from Hades to Olympus. It’s an all right film that is very geared toward a teenage audience without the nods to adults most films come with these days. Knowing it’s directed by Chris Columbus should tell you all you need to know.
The story of how South Africa won the Rugby World Cup in 1995. Starring Matt Damon and Morgan Freeman, it’s an intriguing look into South Africa’s recent history. The rugby scenes go on a bit, even for my rugby-loving tastes, but otherwise it’s a very good movie. I love how the team was so very intimidated by Jona Lomu!
