Ask and YE SHALL receive!

Hah! I just saw this link to a short clip on the movie 300 on rogueclassicism! My guess is he mentioned it before, and I missed it because I've been skimming everything lately.

Here's the Yahoo description: Based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, "300" is a retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army. Facing insurmountable odds, their valor and sacrifice inspire all of Greece to unite against their Persian enemy, drawing a line in the sand for democracy.

I'm so excited!!

And here's IMDB listing.

On a completely unrelated note, here is yet another reason to go to Greece! It's about some copper coins on display in Athens. I'm so BUMMED I can't go to Greece this summer! Pheu! Such is life.

Ahh, back to studying...

I read bits of "300" sometime last year; I'm definately looking forward to the idea of a movie adaptation. I expect it to be, er, imperfectly historical, given it's Frank Miller and all, but his stuff's about style as much as anything...

Yeah, as long as it's actually a good movie...
