Prince of Bloopers
In September, despite the fact that I had already bought Prince of Persia on DVD, I downloaded a copy to my iPad. I was away and thought it would be fun to watch. But the download took forever, and I never got around to it, preferring to watch it on our big-screen TV. Imagine my surprise when I casually clicked on it the other day and saw that there was a digital bonus: about 90 seconds of outtakes. I'm not technically adept enough to figure out how to rip it from iTunes. So I did the only thing I could. I recorded it with my camera. Hence the poor quality but (hopefully) still fun video below:
Apologies if you've already seen it in better quality. If you have, please link us!
I had wanted to do a PoP retrospective on Memorial Day. But I was recovering and unable to put anything together. Consider this a less comprehensive attempt. I've included some photos I haven't seen and/or posted before, as well as some favorites. I really love the way Jake looked in the movie and for all the promotion. I enjoyed so much of PoP: the funny promo interviews, the great red carpet shots, the scope and the richness of the film itself, especially seeing Jake in an epic. I really hope the perceived poor reception of the film doesn't prevent us from seeing Jake in big screen glory like that again.
One of my favorite interviews from the PoP junkets. Feel free to link or mention your own:
There you have it - a hodgepodge, but a beautiful one:
