"The Addam's Family" for my "Movie Book Club". Although I will certainly be watching something of the horror genre tonight in honor of Halloween. :)

Percy Jackson brings the Harry Potter comparisons upon itself though, surely. It wants to be associated with Harry Potter, right?

I really don't get how it brings HP comparisons though. Yeah there are similarities and I don't doubt Riordan got some inspirations from HP, but in the end many of their similarities are very shallow and if you've read the books you know they're very different.

When people compare them it makes them sound like PJO is just some knock-off or rip off of HP, which isn't fair at all to the series.

I think the only real comparison between both the series is that the hero is a "chosen one" of sorts and is involved in some great prophecy. Other than that, I don't think there are too many similarities between the two, aside from shallow ones like Fenix said. XD But, I think the whole comparison thing started because Chris Columbus directed The Lightning Thief movie and he'd already done so well with Harry Potter, people were looking for the PJO movies to become the next HP franchise. XD I'm sure if you watch any random interview about the first movie, there'll be some mention of Chris Columbus and the HP movies he did and such. But, one series is about wizardry and stuff and another about Greek Mythology; I didn't find them too similar to each other. XD

I'm replying to something super old, but I found some interesting trivia. Apparently Riordan finished his manuscript for PJO back in 1994, where as HP's manuscript wasn't finished until 1995. A ripoff it is not!

At the recommendation of Fenix, both Emperor's New Groove and Lilo and Stitch, two movies I avoided watching for years based on how..silly they looked when advertised at the time. The former felt more like a feature length Loony Tunes short than a Disney Movie. Not that it was bad, it was just not...Disney-ish. The latter, on the other hand, was good. It felt like a Disney movie and like Doug Walker said back when he did Disneycember, the moments between the sisters were really good. Also props for not including an outright bad guy in this movie.

Just saw it and I completely agree, it does have a lot of heart to it. Also, you can't really dislike anybody in L&S. Not too often you find that in movies. Like Frozen, I like that the real focus was one the sisters' relationship. I've grown a soft spot for sibling relationships, I admit. Back on the subject of Frozen, I really liked how things like Anna's relationship with Kristoff, while cute, or Hans plotting to usurp the throne ultimately took a backseat to Elsa and Anna's sibling relationship.

Lilo and Stitch has a lot of heart to it, and I'm quite fond of it. It has that classic feeling a lot of kid's movies used to have that are becoming more special these days, where it wasn't terrified of dealing with some real themes and issues, without it overshadowing the overall tone of the movie.

Just saw Emperor's New Groove at the recommendation of some sadist who wants to rule the world. I forget her name XD. Anyway, it was fun but it played more like a feature-length Disney short than a Disney feature (kinda like a Goofy Movie) if you know what I mean.

Why didn't I see this thread? I love Disney movies! Why didn't anyone else?!!

Favorite villain is probably Scar or Jafar, they're so charismatic in a way which made them amusing and intriguing. Favorite movie would be a tie between Mulan and Robin Hood. But Mulan has "I'll Make a Man Out of You." which is my absolute favorite Disney song. Not really any I dislike probably because I've blocked those out. XD
