300 Blazes to Glory

There's something to watching an exercise in futility. 300 speeds by, skimming through its characterization, and gets into what movie -goers came for quite quickly. It is almost obtrusive, though it does get the message across that the Spartans are charging into their...

‘300’ is a man’s movie everyone can love

Lots of People – Including Me – Saw 300 This Weekend

A New Age: A Review Of 300

300, the new epic adventure film by Zack Snyder and Frank Miller, merits comparisons to Orson Welles' 1941 masterpiece Citizen Kane. This statement is not to suggest that Snyder's film is a "great" film, or comparable to any classic piece of cinema. However, 300 is a...

300: The IMAX Experience – Review

It is very rare when a movie lives up to the lofty expectations that the trailer has set. The trailer for 300 set my expectations incredibly high, but the film did not disappoint. Part of me thinks this review is pointless. If you saw the trailer, you want to see it....

‘300’ is a great action movie

Four stars When I think of recent epic movies, the first one that pops into my head is "300." While I was sitting in the theater, the only word that came out of my mouth was, "Wow!" Now when I say "wow," I mean "WOW!" This film seemed to have no limits on its budget....

Flick Chick: 300, Beyond the Gates

Two reviews for the price of one. Both excellent although wildly different. The message of both, though, is that there is meaning and purpose that transcends mortal existence. 300 Directed by Zack Snyder While we live in a time that seems to scream of narcissism, and...

300 – Being Mighty Ain’t Enough

Rating: 4 out of 5 Movie Experience: DT Cinemas Remember J.P Dutta’s Border, the movie based on the Battle of Longewala where a battalion of 120 soldiers held back a 3000 troop strong Pakistani force. The stiff resistance of those 120 troops delayed the pakistani...

Review: Movie: 300 (Blog)

It's simply beautiful to see comic art come to life in cinema. At least for me. I'd never had thought I'd ever see a movie that could take Frank Miller's use of negatives in his comic form and bring it to a movie without looking distasteful. But Rodriguez did that...
