Even better than expected.

I just got back from seeing 300. I think I can speak for the 6 females in the nearly sold-out theater when I say that this was one of the best movies I've ever seen. Ever. If it had been on in HD when I got home from the theater I would have watched it again, and TiVo'd it so I could turn it on again in the morning.

Let's see... fire-bombing wizards: check! At least 3 characters that look just like Sloth from The Goonies: check! An army of chromed V for Vendetta clones: check! Three hundred ripped and badass dudes in nothing but loincloths and capes: check! In short, everything great about a movie in one gorgeous package. Well, almost everything...

At one point in the film I did mention that the only thing that would have made it perfect is if all the Persian corpses that littered the field would rise up and fight behind the Spartans as a zombie army. THAT would have made 300 the best movie ever made. Even so, even without the zombies, all I can say about 300 that I haven't already said is, "holy fuck, why are you still reading this and not out seeing 300 RIGHT NOW?!?"
