 OMG If you love the books and have been thinking of seeing this, you must go see it. It is so much better than Lightening Thief! Yes, a fair number of liberties were taken but the core feel of the books were still there. I left the theater wanting to see Titan's Curse right away. Oh and the Thalia feels! Perfect casting for her, though grants she only spoke a few times but still both actors (young and teen Thalia) emoted quite well.

Definitely on the buy list when the DVD comes out.

 I think I would like to have Thalia refer to herself with an Ancient Greek military rank rather than Artemis' lieutenant, and not just because I can never remember how to spell it. Riordan uses Roman words for the ranks in the new series so I think it only fair.

Wiki has a short list of terms and Lochagos seems the closest fit, though it's more like a captain than a lieutenant. I do wonder if it is appropriate to use though since the Hunters aren't quite a military group. I wonder if there is a title for hunt leader or second leader. More internet searching.

 Here's the trailer from MTV. You've likely seen it but try and pause it at 50 seconds or pay close attention to the scene right after the Oracle speaks. I think that's a young Annabeth, Grover and Luke! And that blue glow strongly suggests this is a flashback scene to Thalia's sacrifice!
