300

If you're already excited about the release of the movie 300, or if you don't know what the heck it is, you should read Victor Davis Hanson's review of the movie. Me, I'm excited. We haven't seen a movie in the theater since Superman returned, but we might have to make an exception for this one.

1 We saw it last night. AMAZING movie. Equal to Braveheart in emotional impact and creation of the desire for courage and valor. And excellent dialog. There was one scene in particular where the audience went nuts and applauded and cheered. And at the end it got a very loud ovation. You won't regret seeing it.

3 I went to go see this movie, however I found it too "shallow" and simplistic, but I loved the whole idea of paralleling it with America and the war on terrorism (I didn't read VDH's piece, but I assume that is what is suggested). The only thing that troubled me though is that this movie can be watched by anyone and seen basically as this call of "never give up and fight to the end, even if your position is futile and your countrymen don't agree with your POV." Okay, fine and dandy for us...but any jihadi watching this movie would nod their head in agreement too. The whole time I was thinking...wow, this is such a propaganda film for the pro-war contigent of the war on terror. But today I spoke with someone at work, who had seen the movie and mentioned that, and he said...oh, yeah, now that you mention it, I guess it was, but otherwise I would have never thought so. I loved the Queen's speech to the senators though...fabulous! We need Laura do make such a speech...however it only made sense 'cos the King was leading the troops. We need some Generals' wives to make speeches. And there is nothing better than watching that movie surrounded by America's warrior class: about half the cinema or more were soldiers from the local Army base...it was pretty hooah!

4 Didn't the folks who did "sin city" do this? It looks cartoonish and computer enhanced. It doesn't appeal to me.
