Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time


Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is an epic action-adventure set in the mystical lands of Persia and based on the video game of the same name. A rogue prince reluctantly joins forces with a mysterious princess and together, they race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time—a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world.

Starring: Jake Gyllenhaal, Gemma Arterton, Ben Kingsley, Alfred Molina
Directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and The Goblet of Fire, Mona Lisa Smile)

I could be a lazy bastard and just tell you to read Luke’s review of the film, which you should read anyway, but I’m not that much of a lazy fat ass. If your looking for a fun, action filled movie that could easily kill 2 hours of your time, then this film will easily do that job. The ladies get a jacked, long hair Jake Gyllenhaal to look at while the guys get a hot Gemma Arterton to drool over. If your looking for the best set that has the best bonus freatures, then the Blu-Ray combo pack that has over 40 bonus segments is what you want. The DVD and individual Blu-Ray only has a making of feature and deleted scenes.

Available: Blu-Ray/DVD/Digital Copy Combo, Blu-Ray, DVD

Any toy that touches Nebbercracker’s property, promptly disappears, swallowed up by the cavernous house in which Horace lives. D.J. has seen it with his own eyes! But no one believes him, not even his best friend, Chowder. What everyone does not know is D.J. is not imagining things. Everything he’s seen is absolutely true and it’s about to get much worse than anything D.J could have imagined.
