Saw 300 last night.
In any case, the movie was worth the wait: a 3 out of 3 on the Sean scale (meaning I’d definitely see it again and will probably buy it). If you like it, you know why I like it. If you don’t like it, I accept your nitpicks but also accept that it is a fictionalized account of the events and it makes good cinema even if it isn’t historically accurate. No, I never read the comics it’s based on, but I’d like to (I’ll probably borrow them from JD).
For you gamers out there in the mood for some Spartan gaming, why haven’t you picked up my book The New Argonauts yet? It’s all about playing in classical-era Greece (with some mythical stuff thrown in), and it’s free!
