I’ve got to tell you, I’m jazzed

The 300 Spartans at Thermopylae is being made into a movie.

Based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, 300 is a ferocious 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. The film brings Miller’s (Sin City) acclaimed graphic novel to life by combining live action with virtual backgrounds that capture his distinct vision of this ancient historic tale.

What Hollywood lacks in perpective in modern times, it makes up for in Gangland and in Historic Epics. It’s almost as if they’re … schizo.

Trailer here. Victor Davis Hanson’s take, and it’s all good.

  1. This is good; I never bothered to read Herodotus because I was just waiting for the movie to come out.

  5. Ha, you think waiting for the movie was bad? Try waiting 2500 years for movies to be invented.
