Muscle & Blood

Every 10 years a film comes along that sets the standards for a new generation of films. This one is it.

Violent. Sexy. Undeniably stylish.

11.0/10.0!You got that right sistah!Saw 300 last weekend and will also see it again.
The colors and texture of the cinematography appears as if it had been painted.Even the characters skin has a other worldly glow.
A female friend of mine said to go see it for the abs,and were they ever
abundant!!SEXY.

I need to see this one. I keep hearing good word of mouth on it. It seems to be smashing up the box office too.

Right Jvan, the ab factor is very high. I was reading about the workout routine all the male leads went through 8 weeks prior to filming. Quite grueling but good results considering all these guy are late 30's to mid 40's.

Thats right Jason, dude at IMAX told me they have sold out every show since it opened and even had to add extra showings to keep up with demand. The kid I sat next to was seeing it for the 3rd time (only open for a week at that point).

It will dominate the technical awards next year.

I just saw it today 3/19. WOW is really an understatement. Nobody mentioned Gerard's bare butt scene, hummmm, very tasty. I think I'll touch that one inappropriately. I totally loved this film!

George, I'm glad you got a chance to see! I think if you go to touch inappropriately you will run into Ryans's hand :)

(It was an impressive physical transformation for GB, wasnt it?)

Saw it.

Felt faint a few times when the blood kept rushing away from my brain.

Recovered during the credits enough to stand and walk out.

Good times.
