Title: Hell is quite lovely this time of year!
Posted: March 22, 2007 (12:11 PM)
I finally watched 300. The film is simply incredible. The visual style is as unique as it gets and I've even developed a man-crush on Gerard Butler (Leonidas). The fight scenes are so well shot you'd think that we're living in a world gone mad for the lack of a console game based on this piece of bloody bliss. Then again, they'd probably f*ck it up anyway, so nevermind.

If you read the graphic novel, you'll definitely notice a few differences between it and the movie, which is to be expected as the graphic novel only takes about a half hour or so to read. The biggest difference is that there's a certain amount of focus on what's going on in Sparta while Leonidas is away, as opposed to the novel where there is little to none, if I remember correctly. Also, the movie includes the obligatory sex scene, of which there was none in the actual novel.

I can't much think of any other way to end this than to urge you to get off your ass and go watch this film, as I will fight you if you don't.

It's a neat movie. Is it just me, or should they have renamed it 60? My estimation of numbers isn't amazing, but it never looked like there were 300 Spartans to me.

Yeah it did sort of seem like they weren't exactly 300 at times, but I'm guessing the set size was limited, plus they only need to concentrate on a handful of the Spartans, as not all 300 or them have any sort of role other than fighting. That or maybe they just seem small compared to the Persian army?

I'm waiting for the DVD. I fear the local college kids will ruin my enjoyment of the film with inane foolery whenever the "THIS IS SPARTA" guy shows up.

"The visual style is as unique as it gets"

I didn't think it looked much different than the stylish music videos Snyder did before Dawn of the Dead and this.

Oh, also, compliments on the aesthetically pleasing blog layout.

There are way too many retina-scalding color combos around here.

Well I never saw these videos by Snyder so this looks pretty damn unique to me. It's more the backdrops than anything, really. The world is very nicely rendered.

And much thanks for the blog layout compliments.
