Better And Better

If you don't draw yours, I won't draw mine. A police officer, working in the small town that he lives in, focusing on family and shooting and coffee, and occasionally putting some people in jail.

Movie impressions:

I saw 300 with my wife the night before last.

Great action.
Interesting photography and superb CGI.
Compelling story.
Some interesting actors.
For the most part, in this movie, Good = Pretty. Bad = Ugly.
Spartan women were, apparently, sooooooooooo hot.
RHIP. Spartan royalty (queens, anyway) were getting smallpox vaccinations, to judge by the scars, about 2400 years before the rest of us.
I knew about battle elephants. But battle rhinoceri?!?
Wow. There sure were a lot of mutants in the Iron Age.
Wow. Those laconic Spartans sure do talk a lot.
And cry.
You'd think that Xerxes could afford some Sodomite women without malformities. I'm just saying.
Did the W.W.F. have to shut down during filming? I mean, the loss of the loincloths alone...
Watch out. Bitch gotta knife!
NOWHERE in the movie did it give the date of the event (480 BC), or even that this was loosely based on an actual event.

Like I told a co-worker: Don't go expecting to see a documentary. Go expecting to be entertained.
