First Look At "300"
Whether you're a military guy or a D&D wanna-be - and I was both so I can make fun of you either way - you had to have learned the story of the Spartans at Thermopylae. Frank Miller wasn't a soldier but he can tell a good story so he took a few bits of fact and made a comic out of them. Now "300" is on its way to the big screen.
Will this be a date movie? Absolutely not. Unless your date likes watching everyone die. It's very much a guy movie. And it has thousands of Iranians dying so that democracy can be preserved. Only we called them Persians then. And the democratic country was Greece, before they became all bi-sexual men who wore dresses in war. I predict that if you like your heroes heroic and you also want to go down swinging when your number is up, this will be your favorite flick of 2006.
