Prince of Persia: But I really am a Persian!

Sands of Time is to be the first in a series of seven movies based on the presumably-soon-to-be legendary (if not already) Prince of Persia (PoP) video games. A quick summary might be helpful for newbies, no?

Hotaru no Haka: A Different Perspective

Note: Just got back from an insane one month tour of China and Hong Kong, and still too tired (i.e. lazy) to do anything substantial. Therefore, chew on a pre-composed essay that's been lying dormant in the draft bin for ages.

Almost every review I’ve read of this movie waxes lyrical of its portrayal of the horrors of war, by forcing viewers to watch two orphaned children survive in the aftermath of Japan’s defeat in World War II. All concur, more or less, that Hotaru no Haka (Grave of the Fireflies) is a must-watch movie for anime fans.
