300 - An Epic and Awesome Experience..

Saturday, 24th March 2007, London.
a not so special, boring weekend, with gloomy weather here in london, it was getting quite tough to pass time.... i had done swimming, my favorite exercise these days... had chatted with surabhi and after she went to sleep (time difference in india and UK sucks big time..) i started browsing TV channels, was looking for a good movie in Film 4, and they aired a trailer of movie 300.
i had seen an add in a newspaper yesterday and movie looked promising.
few hours back when i was chatting with Sharma (honourable movie guru), he also vouched that movie is worth watching....

Took DLR from island garden to West india quay, this is the closest place for us to watch movies..

300 is a ferocious retelling of the ancient battle of Thermopylae in which king leonidas and 300 spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive persian army.
Movie is based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller, directed by Zack Snyder and Gerard Butler is king leonidas.

Have a look at the website and u might feel the pull....

Comments... should make no difference to what you write.
But nevertheless I would comment beacuse i have been asked too.

So now i know what was going on in your mind when u saw the movie .. u bet i do not want to watch it after the complicated review u gave , can neither recognize the story line and nor want to relate to it ....

not my types ... :-)

My husband has watched this movie atleast twice on TV while I couldn't fathom why he was watching it all over again. Got really cranky in the end. Must be a good one. These historic battle types of movies don't get into my head.
