Rick Says: "This Is Sparta, Bitches."

As promised, I told you that I'd give my opinion of the movie 300. I'll quote the late, great Rick James: "This is Sparta, bitches". In other words, the movie was fucking great!!

I don't know if it was because I was way too excited in the first place or if it went beyond my expectations,
300 did not disappoint. I saw this on an IMAX screen and my only complaint was that there was so much going on that I was having to look every which way in order to catch every rich detail.

But
Lena Headey lives up to what a queen should be. She kicks ass and is sexy as all hell. The battle scenes rock. I swear, I came out of there ready to get into a fight. This is a beautiful film, I mean literally. The color saturation, the scenery, the ambiance ... it is beautiful.

I was on the official site and watched the video journal on the workouts the actors did. Fuck me ... I was exhausted just watching. Also, I was inspired to push myself a bit harder.


All I can say is go see this movie... NOW!!!

I just got back from seeing it as well. Holy fuck. Pure brilliance.

Dude, I loved this movie! It was even better than I thought. Don't know why those movie critics hate it so much...oh, right, because they're a bunch of jerkoffs. Anyways, I totally wanted to go swordfighting or something after seeing it...

You got any recs on Sparta-related history books? I want to read up on this a bit more.

Yay! Glad it didn't blow.

Chelle said...

Thanks! Now I know to go.

I'm really surprised it opened as well as it did. The most optimistic forecast was at $50 million, and it opened at a whopping blockbusterish $70 million. Now I guess I'll be the sheep that checks it out now that everyone else has.

Brooke-
Holy fuck

I couldn't say it better myself.

Lindsay-
Those who can't do, hate. The book I'm reading on the battle is actually really great and readable.

Andi-
It was the opposite of blowing ... which I'm not sure. But it certainly rocked.

Chelle-
Do go and tell us what you think.

Deeesguy-
Come on, bro. When have I ever led you wrong with a movie?

Thank you for continuing to blog regularly. VERY regularly. I've seen several bloggers (including myself) become infrequent and sporadic or even quit. Thanks for still being there. I find your posts reassuring, if sometimes startling.

Upon your recommendation I'm gonna see this film, even if seeing Gerard Butler in something other than his 'Phantom of the Opera' garb ruins my fantasy!
