My personal background (I read Robert Graves like whoa!) just sets me on alert with these kinds of mistake. I guess that's why Percy Jackson was such a dissapointment, it cannot get the facts straight. Ok, I can *understand* when you change some facts in order to spice things up a little (come on, Euripides did that), but when there are medular facts on stake (eg, a virgin goddess magically having a child) I immediately get annoyed. Freud understood very well how greek myths summed up human passions, so changing the most important facts just ruins everything that is beautiful with mythology.
ah, there I go bitching again.
Ok, so to sum up:
Watch the movie "Immortals", it was pretty good. And it had a few easter eggs for us connoisseurs to boot. INCREDIBLE scenarios, excelent costumes,
