Elsewhere: Prince of Persia - Sands of Time Review

I couldn't quite bring myself to go out to see the new Prince of Persia movie this holiday weekend, as much as I love the game and its descendants.  Videogames are interactive and the aesthetic is experiential, rather than scripted and observed -- movies are not the same medium at all.

But I still thought it might be fun to see an old-fashioned Douglas Fairbanks-style Arabian Nights movie a la Jerry Bruckheimer.  Then I read a friend's review, and now I'm thinking maybe not.
