Im so fucking annoyed by The Sea of Monster´s movie. I mean, cmon, what the actual fuck. (yeah, im gonna rant AND curse a lot)
So some years ago i was all excited about movie one and it blowed but well it wasnt THAT bad. I hated that they changed the plot so much but well, it was slighty similar.
And when i heard sea of monsters was coming out, and hey! Annabeth would be blonde i got my hopes up cause maybe, just maybe, the director saw how they fucked up in the first movie but, of course, I WAS WRONG.
Dont get me wrong i did enjoy it a bit but it is nothing like the book, and yes i know its an “adaptation”, whatever. But they removed half the plot (Grover is kiddnapped during the film instead than in the beggining. What about the hydra, and Circe? Percy turned into a Guinea pig? The sirens? the party ponies? and what with all that crap of Cronos eating Luke and Grover and wtf) added things, and what bothered me the most was how wrong they captured the characters of the book. I love Logan Lerman cause he is cute but he does not portray Percy, the same with Annabeth. The script makes them both sound different from what we read in the books. Annabeth is super girly to the point where she is a bit dumb. And oercy is just not the same.
i've never read the books and i saw catching fire and i thought peeta was weak, i'm sorry but that's what i got from the movie, he always needed to be saved: from the very start in the arena in the water, with the force field, when they ran from the fog, with the monkeys. like literally during danger in the arena he needed to be saved, he even failed to protect that guy who created the wire and then he got kidnapped at the end, which means everyone will try to save him in the next movie
Huum okay I don’t want to sound rude or anything but did we watch the same movie ?
The water scene : He was fighting with another tribute who attacked him (maybe when he jumped into the water idk). And then he managed to kill him in the water so no he didn’t need to be saved
The force field : the only reason Katniss knew about it was because Beetee told her when they were training at the Capitol (before the Games). Except for her, no one had any idea it was there. Had Finnick (or Mags) been leading, he would have gotten zapped too
The fog : actually Katniss was the one who fell and Peeta went back to get her. He covered her body with his and took a lot of the gas. That’s why he had to be carried afterwards.
The monkeys : again you are wrong. He was the 1st one to stab a monkey, and I’m pretty sure he was also the one who killed the monkey who was trying to drown Katniss (though I’m not 100% sure on this, might have been Finnick because I also remember his trident idk)
"He failed to protect Beetee" : that wasn’t his job. His mission was to save Katniss. When he saw that the wire got cut, he went to find her
Getting kidnapped by the Capitol : Like Haymitch said at the end, he was kidnapped because he still had his tracker whereas Johanna cut Katniss’. Obviously they were gonna save Katniss, she’s the Mockingjay, Finnick & Beetee were near her when she sent that arrow so they were saved too. The rest wasn’t so they couldn’t retrieve them as well. Does that mean Johanna is weak as well ? Because she was also captured
So no, Peeta didn’t “need to be saved all the time”. I agree that Katniss has saved his life plenty of times, and that’s what I love about her and their relationship. But what I love even more is that he has saved her plenty of times as well. Like when he gave the bread when they were younder. He also came up with the star crossed lovers strategy that got them sponsors, they would have died in the arena if they didn’t have those sponsors. he also saved Katniss from Cato in the 1st book/movie etc…
And onf of my favorite quote from Mockingjay “Because that’s what you and I do, protect each other.”
