Don't forget that The 300 is out on video today.
I went to see this in theaters twice and I bought it on bootleg DVD from my local flea market. I have now seen it more than 35 times. I watch it while I'm writing, doing paperwork, and to fall asleep to. I just bought the DVD from Wal-Mart. I also own an original movie poster.
Best line: (King Leonidas is asked to kneel by Xerxes)
"Kneeling ... now that might be a bit of a problem. You see ... killing all of those soldiers of yours has left a nasty cramp in my leg ...
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.
One of my favorite scenes:
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.
If you haven't purchased the video yet ... please consider supporting this site and using this link. It's also the cheapest price!
