So I got to see this one on Saturday, I didn’t know anything about the games really other than he had a knife that could set back time. Oh and that it took place in Persia. lol duh. So anyways, I really enjoyed it! I thought it was a fun movie. Lots of action, great actors, good music, fast paced plot. It reminded me of the first time I went to see Pirates of the Caribbean. I liked it that much.
They got a great actor for the role of Dastan. Just browsing through and looking at pictures from the game, he fits the role well. I don’t think there was any character that was cast poorly. You hated the bad guy and you loved the good guy and all were very well portrayed.
The story, which I won’t spoil too much, was fast paced and they built up the characters pretty well. The princess turns out to be a little more than what she initially appears to be. There WAS a cheesy romance running in the movie, but it was kept short and sweet. Sometimes though it’d make me facepalm. For example, yes the only spoiler I will release, when the bad guy is trying to unleash the Sands of Time, Dastan stops for a whole two minutes to stare at the prince and give her a kiss. Ok sure it’s good to kiss her and all but couldn’t you do that AFTER you save the world? I mean the bad guy is just about to unleash the sand by plunging your dagger into the rock that holds it back. Why not go knock him off the cliff then come and kiss your woman? XD I just found that a real eye roller. There were other small things but that was the biggest one. haha
Music in this movie was really good. By Harry Gregson-Williams, and it’s kind of like a mix between Sinbad and Narnia. I found the theme stronger than Narnia and more enjoyable to be honest.
The movie ended well, I don’t think there will be a sequel because it closed. They didn’t really leave it open for one. Which I DO hope they don’t make one because it’s going to turn out like Pirates. Which, ok I did enjoy the sequels to those movies, but they weren’t as good as the first. And now they’re going for a fourth which makes me cringe a bit. The third wrapped it up nicely. Ah well, I just hope they don’t totally kill it with this movie.
Anyways back to my review, Prince of Persia is a good movie! Go see it! I would suggest the big screen just for the action parts and visuals, like when they pan out across the cities or when the sand is whipping around, it’s kinda cool to get the full effect on the big screen. This is one I’ll probably buy when it hits dvd. And that’s my thoughts on it.
Well some stuff came up and our holidays were put on hold sadly. I was really looking forward to it, but oh well. Stuff happens. SO now I have THREE movie reviews. YES! *gasp* I’m only going to do one at a time… So lets get started!
New Moon one of the most overrated, over-hyped, boring, cliche movies of the year! I was so bored during this movie I didn’t follow half of it. I watched it just to see why everyone was raving about it and to be able to properly make fun of it and not have someone say “WELL did you REALLY watch it???” So it starts off with Bella and Edward being all lovey lovey, they have some kind of b-day party… I think that’s what it was. All his vamp friends are there and Bella gets a papercut, omg! And a vamp tries to jump her and suck her bloooood. Yippee so Eddy finds that he can no longer be with Bella, cause of a stupid papercut, and that he cannot protect her anymore or he might end up sucking her blood too! Hurr hurr really great so far. So he dumps her, and she goes all emo, crys, screams etc, and as my friend put it, she doesn’t just scream, she wails like a woman in labor. So Bella has angsty angst cause her beloved Eddy ditched her and she starts doing dangerous things cause that’s the only time his ghostly apparition of him appears before her to chastise her for doing something stupid. Like… jumping off of cliffs into the ocean!
So this one guy, who happens to be a werewolf, decides to take it upon himself to protect her and make her all safe and tries to get into her pants, I mean uhm loves her. And then there’s this ridiculous part where she pisses off the werewolves and they explode, yes literally explode, into their werewolf form, but they don’t look like weres, more like giant malformed feral wolves. Not so epic battle ensues and such. I kinda stopped paying attention after this because it was getting so ridiculous. Oh yeah and the cgi, the best shot was used in the trailer. Yes it is that sad.
So after many chases of vampires and exploding werewolves we FINALLY get to the main point… I think it was the main point. Anyways Eddy heard that Bella died when she jumped off the cliff, cause she’s a frontal lobotomy patient now. So he wants to kill himself cause a life without her is not worth living…ok whatever. That coming from a guy that’s already undead. So he’s about ready to present himself to the council of really creepy vamp dudes, one looks like the guy from cradle of filth psh, and she barges in to save the day! And all of them, rather than just killing her are all amazed that none of their magical powers work on her. Ok… she’s REAL special, must be that missing part of her brain. So they decide Eddy can live…and then I … can’t remember what happened cause I zoned out again till it got to the end. TWO HOURS it gets to the point where Ed is all MARRY ME BELLA SO WE CAN MAKE UNDEAD BABIES AND THEN I’LL TURN YOU VAMP JUST LIKE MEEEE. 8D And she’s like OH EDDY! The end.
I could say it was an incredible waste of my time but half the time I was drawing or chatting and lost my focus on the movie cause it was that bad and that boring. So I’ll just say it was a waste of my precious bandwidth. I really don’t know what people see in these movies. I haven’t seen the first film, my friend filled me in on it, and she said the second was better so GOOD LORD I DUN WANNA WATCH THE FIRST ONE. I hated this movie, it was horrible, stupid scripting, bad cgi and boring boring boring story, and plot…wait what plot?
Oh yeah there was this one line in the movie I about died laughing at. Bella was talking to her new werewolf buddy and commenting about how warm he was, and with a comment/ pick up line said “Oh you’re so warm it’s like you’re your own sun!” teehee. -.- Ok well it’s maybe not the exact quote, but you get the gist of it.
