I went to a showing of Frank Miller’s 300 over at the Harkin’s tonight. I really liked it, despite what some of the so called critics have been saying. Sure, it’s not a historically accurate telling of the story of the Battle of Thermopylae, but it’s really good.
If you’re not interested in quite a bit of blood and gore or are expecting a happy ending, don’t bother going to see it. On the other hand, if you’re interested, you might want to read up on the actual historical events surrounding the battle.
