300

I have to say I'm pretty excited about this movie, seeing as its about the battle of Thermopylae (480BC), where 300 Spartans (and several hundred allies) led by their king, Leonidas held off the Persian army long enough for the rest of the Greek city-states to get their crap together. The Spartans died to the last man. I'm going to be really interested to see how the director portrays this, although I'm somewhat concerned by the trailers, which essentially show the Spartans running around in nothing but underwear and capes(?)... Should be worth seeing, even so...

The whole "underwear and capes" thing is directly taken out of the comic that Frank Miller drew.
