Re: I saw 300 last night.....

Saw it on Saturday night and holy crap. I went in kind of expecting something that was sort of a cross between Sin City (style-wise obviously because of Frank Miller) mixed in with a bit of Gladiator (content-wise), and I definitely wasn't disappointed - hell, even the GF loved it (but she loves action movies as well, so take that into account).

There's action pretty much from beginning to end, so it's next to impossible to get bored, the movie has an INCREDIBLE style to it with some of the characters and all of the CG backgrounds, and unless you're really concerned with historical accuracy, it's easily forgiven because many people don't even know the idea is based on a true story, and it's not meant to be historically accurate anyway (while the concept is accurate, they didn't start the battle with 300 men - it was actually 1000 and by the last day of the battle it had been whittled down to 300).

My final review: If you think that this is your run of the mill Ben Hur/Gladiator movie, you're dead wrong. Frank Miller is a comic genius and he's one of few people that can really translate his work with all of it's style and imagination from paper to live action on the big screen..... and this is definitely a movie that you have to see on the big screen because watching it at home just won't be the same, and downloading some cam version won't serve any justice to the movie..... save the downloading for forgettable movies like Wild Hogs. Just pay the cash and you won't be going home disappointed!

Re: I saw 300 last night.....

Ok so I saw it last night. Very good movie. It's typically not my type of movie, yet like someone else said it was impossible to get bored. And with my ADD that's a stretch. I'm not a huge fan of blood and guts so I had my head buried into the shoulder of the person next to me. lol...

300 = $70 Million!
Apparently, moviegoers have much love for the Spartans. Or for violent, bare-chested musclemen. Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel about the ancient Battle of Thermopylae, 300 opened with a whopping $70 million in box-office receipts — setting a new record for the biggest ever March premiere and earning more than the rest of the top 10 movies combined. In fact, it more than doubled the ticket take of its nearest competitors, Wild Hogs, the buddy/road trip comedy that, itself, earned a not-too-shabby $28 million in its second week of release (taking its total to $77.4 million). As for the rest of the top 10, Bridge to Terabithia moved up a spot from fourth to third with $6.9 million ($67 million for four weeks); Ghost Rider dropped a spot to fourth place with $6.8 million ($104.1 million for four weeks); and Zodiac, last week's number two, fell to fifth with $6.77 million, bringing its two-week total to $23.7 million. The success of 300 also led to a huge boost for the overall box-office picture, with the top 12 movies earning 49 percent more than the top 12 for the same weekend last year.

I thought it looked retarded. I have issues with the suspension of disbelief in movies, however.
