Percy Jackson and his friends are back in this stunning adventure. "Sea of Monsters" is a combination of mythology and fantasy all wraped up in one fun and exciting movie. The group of kids that are the focus of the film are what they call "half bloods," which are children that come from [...]

The Three Musketeers 2011

In some ways this movie reminds me more of "Indiana Jones" than of the novel it is based on.
