My Spoiler-Free Mini-Review of 300

Seriously. Go see this movie. There is no way you won't have a good time. Don't overthink it. It's like watching a really great sporting event. 300 buff dudes fight off wave after crazy wave of Persians. And it looks great...

...really, really great...

Damn. Those are some buff dudes.

Anyway, it's a good time at the movies. It's not too long, which I appreciate, and it more or less looks like and follows the book. There's some kinda lame added subplots, but I don't want to spoil anything. I would be happy to discuss the movie more in depth in the comments thread. Until then, just go see it, then walk out of there ripping your shirt off and killing something in the name of Sparta.

Yeah, that's right, Frank. I liked it. Shut up and stop looking so smug.

A few days ago, while doing laundry, I kicked the hamper down the basement steps and screamed "THIS IS SPARTA!"

And let me tell you, it felt really good.

I cannot wait until Friday.

You know how bad-ass Sparta is? They're a bunch of dudes who wear nothing but leather thongs, work out all day and area all totally gay for eachother, but if you called them gay to their manly faces, they would totally kill you with, like, one finger, they're so tough.

It made me want to learn more about Xerxes' court life (Spoiler! What was up with that GOAT MAN?!). And do more crunches. Because my abs are not up to Spartan quality.
