The Day After Tomorrow stars Dennis Quaid, Jake Gyllenhaal and Emmy Rossum. The film was directed by Roland Emmerich who also directed Independence Day. The world is over heating to the point that the ice caps are melting which spells doom for all of its inhabitants. Where will you be the day after tomorrow?

This film grabs you from the start and doesn’t let go of you till you see the credits at the end. We get to see real talent from the actors both the main and supporting characters. The effects in this film are mind blowing and done so well that you would think that they were real and not just props or CGI. They really do look that good and you can feel the cold as you watch the characters struggle to just stay alive. With acting and special effects this well done you are always going to have a hit. This is how a dramatic film should be, not just a bunch of sappy people crying and whining all the time.

Review: Prince Of Persia Movie

Jake Gyllenhaal from the prince of persia posterJust watched this film and it was great seeing the game that I originally saw played on the Apple II. I could have swore there was a Commodore64 version but couldn’t find a reference to it but that was over 20 years ago, but I did play the game before. It was a fun game then and from what I have seen of my son playing some of the newer versions, it is still a fun game. But this review is about the movie and not the game, just giving a pit of insight is all.

Any way, the film is great. It has Destan being played Jake Gyllenhaal who was the real lead of The Day After Tomorrow in my opinion as he was the one stuck in NY City. This is a film about how the prince came to be and his humble origins. You see he was not born a prince but was made a prince by the king of Persia just for standing up and doing what was right. The king saw it and after finding out that he was an orphan the king adopted him as his own. That is how he came to be a prince of Persia and as he had no royal blood, a safe son as he would not have designs on the throne.
