ok so almost everyone has probably seen The lightning Thief by now. Some other movies that you may suggest can be posted under this topic. **We would appreciate it if you also post what it is about (a plot or a summary) and the rating for it.(PG, G, PG-13...)

Here are some great movies I've seen:

Avatar: rated PG-13
When his brother is killed in a robbery, paraplegic
Marine Jake Sully decides to take his place in a mission on the distant
world of Pandora. There he learns of greedy corporate figurehead Parker
Selfridge's intentions of driving off the native humanoid "Na'vi" in
order to mine for the precious material scattered throughout their rich
woodland. In exchange for the spinal surgery that will fix his legs,
Jake gathers intel for the cooperating military unit spearheaded by
gung-ho Colonel Quaritch, while simultaneously attempting to infiltrate
the Na'vi people with the use of an "avatar" identity. While Jake
begins to bond with the native tribe and quickly falls in love with the
beautiful alien Neytiri, the restless Colonel moves forward with his
ruthless extermination tactics, forcing the soldier to take a stand -
and fight back in an epic battle for the fate of Pandora
.


The Blind Side: Rated PG-13
"The Blind Side" depicts the story of Michael Oher, a homeless
African-American youngster from a broken home, taken in by the Touhys,
a well-to-do white family who help him fulfill his potential. At the
same time, Oher's presence in the Touhys' lives leads them to some
insightful self-discoveries of their own. Living in his new
environment, the teen faces a completely different set of challenges to
overcome. As a football player and student, Oher works hard and, with
the help of his coaches and adopted family, becomes an All-American
offensive left tackle.


The Spy Next Door: rated PG
Bob Ho, a Chinese spy working with the CIA to stop a man named Poldark.
He's been posing as an importer and has been dating his neighbor,
Gillian, a single mother with 3 children. When Bob captures Poldark, he
retires from the spy game. He wants to make a commitment to Gillian but
her children are not exactly warming up to him. When Gillian has to go
out of town Bob offers to take care of the kids while she's away, which
proves to be no easy task. At the same time, Poldark somehow escapes.
It's apparent that some in the Agency helped him. At the same time
Colton one of Bob's associates at the CIA asks him to look at something
that Poldark had on him that appears to encrypted, hoping he can crack
it.When the children break into his home to see what they can find out
about him, they find the file and download it. And when they try to
open it, Poldark tracks it down and sends his people to take care of
Ho. Bob manages to deal with them and then takes the children and goes
on the run.


2012: rated PG-13
When the geologist Dr. Adrian Helmsley and his team discover that the
core of Earth is heating due to solar radiation, he advises the North
American President about his findings. The American Govern collects
money from the worldwide leaders to build arks to save them with
necessary people to rebuild civilization. Meanwhile, the unsuccessful
writer Jackson Curtis discloses that the world is near to end and tries
to save his son and his daughter from the tragic end.


hope you could post some more soon!!

I liked Transformers. It is PG-13, but it is really good. (has Shia LaBeouf and Megan Fox). he is a summary from imdb.com
High-school student Sam Witwicky buys his first car, who is actually the Autobot Bumblebee. Bumblebee defends Sam and his girlfriend Mikaela Banes from the Decepticon Barricade, before the other Autobots arrive on Earth. They are searching for the Allspark, and the war on Earth heats up as the Decepticons attack a United States military base in Qatar. Sam and Mikaela are taken by the top-secret agency Sector 7 to help stop the Decepticons, but when they learn the agency also intends to destroy the Autobots, they formulate their own plan to save the world.


it is awesomeness!!!

I liked Alice in Wonderland
In the film, Alice is now 19 years old and accidentally returns to Underland, a place she previously visited 13 years ago. She is told that she is the only one that can slay the Jabberwocky, a dragon controlled by the Red Queen.

and Julie and Julia

The film depicts events in the life of chef Julia Child in the early years in her culinary career, contrasting her life with Julie Powell, who aspires to cook all 524 recipes from Child's cookbook during a single year, a challenge she described on her popular blog that would make her a published author.(mostly because I like the actress and food)

Has anyone seen Spirited Away. It is a Japanese animation by Studio Ghibli. It has been dubbed in English as well. It's PG (in Britain).

IMDB: In the middle of her family's move to the suburbs, a sullen 10-year-old girl wanders into a world ruled by gods, witches, and monsters; where humans are changed into animals; and a bathhouse for these creatures.

Really really good film; I recommend it highly. The same for almost any film by Studio Ghibli. They're great film makers.

i think the director said it took them 4 years to make it, and then almost half a year to edit and make it 3d and all.

The Blind Side is more uplifting, an inspirational movie of caring and acceptance. It is what is possible when we look at each other for the person behind the eyes and not the person behind the skin, race, or religion. . Precious is incredibly violent, full of foul language, verbal, physical, and sexual violence. It might have a good outcome in the movie, but not at the cost of what it exposes you to.

Yeah, too depressing. Anyone seen Dragonheart? Sorry-(movie from the 90's) Maybe it's just my dragon mania, but I think it's brilliant. If you're the medieval type, this is for you.
