When I saw it I was floored at how well all the actors did and how closely the movie followed the book. That is one of my top five that almost all my friends can't sit through.
Thumbs up to the book, thumbs down to the movie. Hardcore drug binging is better depicted in writing than on film I guess.

So I just saw "300" and I have to say that it was amazing. I was thinking it might be kinda cool, a little edgy, have some good scenes, but it blew my expectations completely out of the water.

Think equal parts Braveheart, Gladiator, Troy (except without as much suck), and Lord of the Rings. It was really, really friggin' cool. Frank Miller is awesome, and they did another great job of adapting his graphic novels to the screen. Gerard Butler is astounding -- the similarites to Russel Crowe as Maximus are obvious, but Butler really makes this character his own and the performance is just ridiculously good.

As I told my dad when we left the theatre, I've seen better movies, but this is the most awesomest movie I've ever seen. Essentially, I wouldn't say it's like Oscar material, but it's one of the coolest and most enjoyable times you'll spend at the movies.

I saw 300 this past saturday.

Pretty intense stuff. Lots of battle action. Good bit of freak show with the persian's battle hardened genetic freaks. Even some boobies.

It definitely isn't a kid's movie as it's pretty gorey and some of the characters are rather grotesque. It's just amazing how many parents take their children (8-12 yrs old) to see movies like this. I really think it would be disturbing to most under 18.

I did enjoy it even though there were a couple scenes I found difficult to stomach.

I can't wait for Shooter to come out. I love all of Stephen Hunter's novels and it sounds like they're going to stay pretty true to the story.

My best friend is in Shooter. He's one of the FBI/Swat guys, I'm looking forward to seeing it. He was also in Invincible. He lives outside Philly and Marky Mark decided to film a couple movies in Philly recently so his agent got him in.

I thought "300" was a funny joke for Hollywood to play on audiences, when you think about what demographic this movie drew the strongest positive reactions from.

"Shooter" should be a decent flick. I like Marky Mark, he earned my respect in Boogie Nights: "Have you heard the tapes? Have you even heard them? We're guaranteed a record deal. Our stuff is that good!"

Leo got robbed of the Oscar for "What's Eating Gilbert Grape?" That was the pinnacle if his career, playing Arnie.

That doesn't sound like that line would be in Boogie Nights....maybe Rockstar?

Recall the scene where Dirk and his buddy Reed (played by John C. Reilly) are trying to record a rock demo? "Feel, feel, feel, feel my heat...." Dirk's trying to talk the owner of the studio into giving them their recordings without them having to pay for them first.

That whole rock demo studio sequence is hilarious.

I only found it hysterical because I've known real people like that.
