300 is not a 10 but…

Caught up with the hype of the current box office champ, 300. The movie’s strong points are the action and effects. Computer generated animation has come a long way. This movie is testament to that as it was filmed in Montreal using a bluescreen. BRILLIANT!

A must see on the big screen if you are a fan of BC era macho power violence. This movie is rated R for good reason and any action lover wont be disappointed. While there maybe some glaring historical liberties taken it’s still watchable (barely). To be fair not many things are “known” about the Battle of Thermopylae and this is an interesting Hollywood take on Frank Miller’s graphic novel.

This film doesn’t move me to jump off my couch to catch more Hollywood flicks. Foriegn and Canadian films of late have been interesting (and worth checking out since they aren’t on the big screen very long). A trip to the local video store will still suffice for much of slather on the big screen and I’d rather pay less than half the price to see it.

    I sorta took a weird pleasure to see that nice huge Quebec symbol at the end of the credits!
