300 revisited

Okay, now that I am done wiping the drool from my face.

I just wanted to mention a scene in the movie that I really loved. I know that the story is not completely based on historical facts but I was thoroughly impressed by the way Leonidas always conferred with his wife. I love the way he protected her honour when the Lagbaja-looking messenger insulted her.

Conversely, I do feel that there was a little bit of a contradiction when Queen Gorgo went to speak to the council, all the hoops she had to jump through just to speak to a council of men. If they really revered their women why was it such a task for a whole Queen to speak to them.

Anyway, I am moving Gerard Butler to my top eight for that ultra-sexy accent and the rock hard abs he provided me with in the movie! Yes, I am back to drooling, hee hee!

Yes, I spent a day catching up on your old posts and was impressed by your creativity. I hope you put it to good use.

300 is a definite must see. I did not think it was that gory, I expected something out of this world from a few reviews I read. I also like that it did not go on for too long. There is a lot to like about this movie, let me know what you think when you see it :)


I have liked Gerard Butler since I first saw him in a TNT movie called Attila. He was and is a good actor and I hope 300 will help make him more of a household name.

As for his looks, well, let's just say, they definitely do not hurt. lol!
