On Wednesday some of my fellow co-workers and I decided to leave work early that afternoon and take a field trip to the IMAX theater to see 300. A simple blurb described 300:

"Based on the epic graphic novel by Frank Miller, 300 is a ferocious retelling of the ancient Battle of Thermopylae in which King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes and his massive Persian army. Facing insurmountable odds, their valor and sacrifice inspire all of Greece to unite."

I typically don't have much interest in these types of flicks, especially going to the theaters to see this kind of movie (I'm more of a comedy man myself) - but everyone at work and on the radio kept ranting and raving about how great it was so I figured I'd give it a shot. This movie was actually awesome, the storyline, the characters and the state of the art cinematography made this non-stop action movie simply amazing. I highly recommend anyone to go see this film while it is still showing in the theaters (especially if you have access to an IMAX theater) because seeing it on the big screen takes it to a whole new level.
