It's time to sit back and reflect on the masterpiece that was 300. Now that every fan boy and his brother has had a chance to see 300, whether in the theater, on DVD, or my personal favorite the HD DVD, it is time to reflect on this little gem. You just have to admire...

DVD Review: 300

irst off, this is a super violent movie, although the comic book "look", in sepia tones with splashes of blood red, make it not quite as real and shocking. Straight from the pages of history, here's the drill. Based on the acclaimed graphic novel by Sin City's Frank...

Movie Review – 300 (blog)

Thor Rocks a Big Block (blog)

Friday night, several of us from work gathered at Brandon’s place to watch 300 on Blu-ray and then proceed with yet more carnage obliterating one another inside the madness that is Gears of War. I don’t know how one can not enjoy 300. Yes, it’s full of odd quirks and...

Prepare for Glory (blog)

I finally had the opportunity to see 300 over the weekend. If you are not familiar with the movie, 300 is based on Frank Miller's graphic novel about the Battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. It basically illustrates the story of King Leonidas and his courageous Spartan...

Movie Review: Frank Miller’s “300” (blog)

I love movies. I adore movies.. To that end, I think I'll starting posting movie reviews here from time to time. I'll start with this one. It's a bit older, but it's one I've already got lying around. Before I say anything else, this is NOT a historic account of the...

Frank Miller’s ‘300’ embodies the art of war

"There's no way to tell the story of '300' without it being amazingly brutal," Frank Miller says. And there's no way to watch "300" on DVD without being completely blown away by the audio-visual spectacle of this captivating, highly stylized film. Based on Miller's...

Visually exciting ‘300’ not for the squeamish

There's enough testosterone in "300" to power every Starbucks west of the Mississippi. Men with carved pecs strut around in G-strings and the occasional over-the-shoulder throw, ready to mate or do battle. In "300," out on DVD today, hordes of invading Persians...

Frank Miller’s 300 HD DVD Review

300, the movie, is the CGI action film event of 2006 and is now on HD DVD, DVD and Blu-ray. Shot 100% digitally, this film begs to be viewed on one of the high definition disc formats. But it’s the HD DVD users that get treated to groundbreaking disc technology: Make...

Spartans never say die in `300′

There's plenty of testosterone in "300": Men with chiseled pecs strut around in G-strings and the occasional over-the-shoulder throw, ready to mate or do battle, or mate and do battle. Just out on DVD, the historical drama focuses on Sparta, a warrior culture...

STARS of a big bucks movie were spotted strolling through Paisley yesterday as they wrapped up filming in the town’s oldest bar. Up and coming English lead actor Charlie Cox casually chatted with fellow screen-stars outside The Bull Inn – which has been transformed...

New to DVD – 300

Audacious, bold and possibly something completely original, 300 might be the first film in decades that display no specific external influence from its own medium. Almost a copy and paste job of the baroque aesthetics and nihilism that separate graphic novels from...

Death & Glory (blog)

I've just finished watching 300 on DVD and was blown away once again by Zack Snyder's ability to capture the stylistic approach Frank Miller used when doing the 3oo graphic novel. The saturation of colour throughout the movie manages to almost transform the film into...
