I could see this 300 times .... in a row!
I went to the midnight showing of The 300 last night. This is a visually stunning movie. I highly recommend it! If you are a creative type (graphic design/artist) you owe it to yourself to see this movie.
My two favorite scenes:
King Leonidas [Gerard Butler] is standing over literally dozens of dead Persians after a battle - eating an Apple he says "... we fought well Spartans!"
King Leonidas is standing in front of a deep water well facing a messenger of the Persian army (whose back is to the well) ... Leonidas disagrees with the messenger and kicks him into the well. This is dramatically shot in slow motion - it's so visual and empowering.
Here is the High Def trailer at APPLE.COM: The 300
Almost every second of this movie frame by frame - is worthy of an art gallery.
