If you own a epic gaming console such as the Ps3 is nowadays, you've heard of Prince of Persia. But I remember this saga from yeeeeeears back. Shit is as old as I am! Was a load of unwashed cock and balls until Sands of Time came out on the PC, PlayStation 2, Nintendo GameCube and Xbox.
Me being an true gamer, with the metal to burn shit alive, owned and still do the GameCube and PC versions. Back when I owned a PC... But the motherfucker is used as a doorstop now. Long live my iMac! Oh shit, I'm off key right now. Back to PoP.
PoP:SoT was amazing. I played it for days on end with nothing to lose. That's when I realized that the game itself, with its beautifully written half assed tale and crazy bugger who can run on walls, do ninja flips and fucking rewind time, was nearly damn perfect. But this was back in the day where games were not a part time job for me. Where I picked against everything from how the characters didn't blink or how the pants they wore were so tight I was shocked to find that they didn't crawl up their asses.
Prince of Persia: Warrior Within and Prince of Persia: The Two Thrones where fucking retarded. Trying to recapture the stunning ability to drawn out the inner hero in us. But failed. Not saying these were terrible games. Just no Sands of Time.
But I came across something that truly left me awestruck. They are making a movie of Sands of Time. Yup... To say the least, I have no idea if I should feel excited about a movie that could potentially ruin one of my top games of all time. (No Call of Duty is not one of them!) Yes, seeing SoT through rose tinted glasses does make me a little more biased. But will this stop me from seeing this? I think not.
The lovely Prince is being played by none other than Jake Gyllenhaal. That hooker of a Princess is being played by Gemma Arterton. Will be directed by Mike Newell. Who also directed Donnie Brasco and Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire. But what truly caught my eye was Jerry Bruckheimer. Yup, that grandiose producer. If you don't know who he is by now, you really need to get out from under than fecal matter than you call a rock. Motherfucker is everywhere!
I'll let you all in on a little dirty secret I know... There is a poster, hidden in an up and coming movie that the all time master of producing Jerry B has coming out on the 13th of February. That's correct, kiddies. Confessions of a Shopaholic. So if you plan of seeing that movie, look closely for that poster. Because I know I'll be hunting down a screenshot of that shit.
But gotta wait until May 2010 for it. Probably by then I'll be bored of it.
