HERE'S A LOOK AT THE DIGITAL EFFECTS in the new movie 300. Inspired by the critics' reviews, Dean Barnett is eager to see the film!
I imagine this will help the sales of Steven Pressfield's Gates of Fire, too. That's good, as I found it to be an excellent novel. So did the whopping 556 reviewers over at Amazon. . . .
UPDATE: I haven't read Pressfield's Alexander the Great novel, but people seem to like it, too.
ANOTHER UPDATE: An interesting look at the politics of the film. Apparently it didn't play well in Berlin. But the National Hockey League likes it! I'd think they'd find it insufficiently violent . . . .
