This Week's DVD/Blu-ray Choice, September 13th

This week's biggest, and frankly best, DVD release is the Mike Newell directed Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time.

Produced by blockbuster extraordinaire Jerry Bruckheimer, one of the most successful game-to-film adaptations hits shelves this week, with hunk Jake Gyllenhaal taking on the title role of Dastan, an orphan-turned-Prince accused of murdering his father, the King. Chased around the desert by his Uncle's henchmen, Dastan is accompanied by a rival princess (Gemma Arterton) and a magical dagger with the powers to turn back time. Spellbinding special effects, a quirky but rather loathsome couple and an adventure that works wonders. The entertainment factor is sky high, therefore vastly overpowers the negativities. Read my full review here!

Honourable Mentions:

Two of comedies most trusted treasures Steve Carrell and Tina Fey team up in Date Night, a high octane action comedy directed by Shawn Levy. A case of mistaken identity in New York City send a troubled married couple on an adventure to remember when they're chased down by a mob boss. While the laughs may lack in certain areas, the duo maintain a chemistry that is delightful to watch throughout. An enjoyable Friday night flick, with a hilarious set of bloopers during the credits!
