Aladdin Prince of Persia

Aladdin Prince of Persia

I saw Prince of Persia Sand of Time today, certain elements like the prince (Dastan) being quick on his feet and a good sword fighter did remind me of Aladdin. It’s a nice movie, not a really strong story but I liked some characters, Dastan the best. The princess, Tamina was okay but I would’ve liked to see her a better fighter as she’s supposed to be strong and independent. The cinematography looked really beautiful and love the music.
Now let’s see if there’s a sequel by 2012 as people seem to think there’ll be. If there ever will be a live-action remake of Aladdin I can imagine it would look and feel like PoP. In the mean time watch the Prince of Persia trailer set on One Jump Ahead

Jasmine is against 3D animation

Jasmine is against 3D animation

Beautiful drawing of our favorite princess that looks like it could have been part of the movie. The artist meant it as a joke but there’s some truth in it, seeing the reactions the 2D vs 3D animation discussion is still alive. I thought that had died now that almost all major animation studios have been producing computer animated films for almost a decade.
When Disney nicked traditional for computer animation a year of, what is it 6 years? ago it fel like betraying their legacy to me. Since then I have accepted it because well there’s nothing any fan can do about it. But when it watched Princess and the Frog last year I did question myself, why those folks at Disney’s gave up this beautiful craftsmanship. I did love Toy Story 3, that’s the most amazing storytelling in the whole TS series with great new characters. My next movie will be Rapunzel because well I’m done with Shrek and other animation movies don’t connect to me.
