New Line cuffs ‘Escape’ redo

New Line Cinema has gotten the keys to the new "Escape From New York." The remake of the cult John Carpenter movie, being produced by Neal Moritz with Gerard Butler attached to star as Snake Plissken, hit the town this week and had several studios trying to capture...

‘300’ stuns with action and beauty

After seeing the adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel ''Sin City'' on the big screen in 2005, I was very excited about the announcement and arrival of ''300.'' I was not disappointed in the least. ''300'' is a film about the Spartan Battle of Thermopylae against...

Spartan ‘300’ Over The Top Brilliant!

Frank Miller's unique and violent "Sin City" pushed the envelope of possibility in film, making it hard to imagine anything coming close to its beauty and innovation. Fittingly, the adaptation of another of Miller's graphic novels, "300," finally surpasses its gritty...

‘300’: NOT JUST A BATTLE FLICK

Though this is a battle epic few can match, there's a beauty and a noble nature to this film. It's the kind that comes from total commitment to a cause: here, the notion of a free and unyielding Sparta. That's delivered in this film through gleaming biceps, rippling...

The Good, The Bad, The Abs of 300 (blog)

Good: - Hot damn, that was a beautifully art-directed movie! The crispness, detail, hyper-realism and cartoonish blood. - The expansion of the Queen's role. Great to contrast the battles, but also just to balance out the action as well. - The music. I thought it was a...

Beautiful death

"300" should be the Marines' new recruitment video. The few, the proud, the Chippendales with swords. The story may be true -- 300 Spartan Davids did fight hundreds of thousands of Persian Goliaths at the battle of Thermopylae in 480 B.C. -- but the film is decidedly...

300 Delights with Cast, Fails with Script

Zach Snyder's 300, long awaited by Classics nerds (like myself), teenage boys, and gay porn stars alike, finally made its debut this weekend and it lived up to its pre-release hype, smashing the competition in true Spartan form. Adapted from Frank Miller's 1998...

“300” opens to mixed reviews: Epic lives up to hype

Ripped from the pages of Frank Miller's graphic novel, the much-anticipated Spartan epic "300" charges into theatres with spear in hand, ready to meet hoards of epic-starved movie-goers. Released on March 9 in theatres and IMAX nationwide, this latest Frank Miller...

“300” Tackles Epic Battle of Spartans, Persians

One of the Most Important Films in Years, Reviewer Says For those wondering, director Zack Snyder’s 300 isn’t a remake of the 1960 sword n’ sandals epic The 300 Spartans. The trendy word is “reimagining,” except that it’s also filtered through the eye of comic-book...

The Host and 300 (blog)

Check out the comment threads at the AV Club in regards to reviews for these two movies, The Host and 300, the last two movies I have seen in the theater. It is hilarious high-brow v. low-brow humor...and a lot of people taking things out of context and making the...

Big Surprise: The Tarts Love 300

What a lot of people don't know is that there is a huge, female fanbase that was more excited about the release of 300 than even the geekiest of fanboys. Why is this so? Two words - Gerard Butler. One of the "Tartans" wrote in with a review that that most likely sums...

Movie Review: Beowulf & Grendel

Having recently seen 300, an infinitely superior film to this, it came to mind that this was probably used as Gerard Butler's audition. In Beowulf & Grendel he shows that he has a certain charisma in the hack-and-slash type of film, and can spout inspirational...
