"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
