Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time……….. (A.K.A. My very first movie review!)

May 30, 2010

The movie Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time opened last Friday and is based on the popular…

Jake Gyllenhaal?


…um, is based on the wildly successful video game franchise….

Jake Gyllenhaal???

…(excuse me)…

…the first Prince of Persia game was launched by Ubisoft in 1989 for the Nintendo Game Boy…


*deep breath*

…and its 1st sequel, Prince of Persia: The Shadow & The Flame, was released in 1994 for the Super Nintendo…


I’m sorry.
I just can’t do this.

Jake Gyllenhaal as Prince Dastan?
I feel sick.

(Well, at least they didn’t cast Shia LeBeouf…)


UPDATE: This would’ve been better, in my opinion.
