Percy Jackson and the Olympians - The Lightning Thief

Last night, I spent my time with my friend to watch Percy Jackson in Bukit Raja. The Movie starts at 11.55pm. Huhu, I'm still smiling. The movie certainly brought back pure fun and magic into the cinema going experience. Part of the fun is to see how other notable names in the casting list get to play up their gods and demon status. Uma Thurman stars as Medusa, spruced up by special effects snakes adorned on her head, which at certain points looked quite CG-ed for its own good. Hahahaha… gud job Medusa!

Anyway, for people out there I’m suggesting all of you to see it on the big screen, the bigger the better. The movie was absolutely fun to watch! I give Percy Jackson and the Olympians - The Lightning Thief  9 out of 10!

Synopsis......

It's the 21st century, but the gods of Mount Olympus and assorted monsters have walked out of the pages of high school student Percy Jackson's Greek mythology texts and into his life. And they're not happy: Zeus' lightning bolt has been stolen, and Percy is the prime suspect. Even more troubling is the sudden disappearance of Percy's mother. As Percy adapts to his newly discovered status as a demi-god (his father is Poseidon), he finds himself caught between the battling titans of Mt. Olympus. He and his friends embark on a cross-country adventure to catch the true lightning thief, save Percy's mom, and unravel a mystery more powerful than the gods themselves.

Being an introductory film to the world of the Olympians, we learn facts like why Percy's such a big deal (no he didn't repel the biggest foe in the franchise), and the little do's and don'ts they have to learn from the likes of the centaur Chiron (Pierce Bronson). But kids being kids, and wanting to save his mom from the clutches of Hell, Percy and his friends embark on an American cross country road trip, and in the meantime try to decipher just who could that Thief be, having 14 days as the deadline to meet, which forms the basis of incidents and episodes that the trio come face to face with in exhibiting their powers (well, actually only Percy's).

Persahabatan adalah cinta yang tidak bersayap....

Persahabatan itu adalah "cinta yang tidak bersayap". Sahabat atau teman adalah definisi diberikan untuk orang yang boleh berkongsi jiwa dan rasa. Sebuah persahabatan yang ikhlas lahir dari dan ia tidak akan pergi.

Mencari rakan, kawan mahupun kenalan adalah amat senang. Tetapi percayalah mencari sebuah persahabatan itu adalah sukar dan sulit ditemui.

Rasulullah (S.A.W) pernah bersabda yang bererti :
"Seseorang itu akan mengikuti agama sahabatnya, oleh kerana itu, setiap orang dari kamu sekalian hendaknya memperhatikan siapa yang ia jadikan sebagai teman
(Hadith riwayat At Tirmidzi, Abu Daud dan Ahmad)

Saya bersyukur kepada Alah (S.W.T) kerana diberi peluang dan dianugerahkan sahabat yang terindah dalam hidup. Saya berjanji pada hati untuk menjaga persahabatan ini sehingga ke akhirnya. Tiada manusia yang sempurna, dan kita tidak perlu menjadi terlalu sempurna, kita manusia biasa tetapi kita harus berusaha untuk memperbaiki kelemahan kita supaya menjadi lebih baik. Saya amat menyanyangi sahabat-sahabat saya dengan penuh ikhlas kerana Allah. Saya tidak akan pernah memadamkan doa saya sehinggalah saya dikafankan. Semoga Allah merahmati dan menjaga persahabatan kami semua, saya yakin Allah tidak pernah menyalahi janjinya.
