Watched Frank Miller's 300 last night. It rocked.

I have not yet read the comic, I intend to pick it up this weekend.

I first read about the battle of Thermopylae in Herodotus, I guess after the English Patient came out (hated that movie, but read Herodotus anyway) (yes, I know, it is not cool to read Herodotus after the English Patient made it popular, but you know, it's a good book, and easy to read, and people should do it no matter how cool/uncool it is). A friend of mine once remarked that the Greeks just seemed to "live closer to the flame". 300 captures that spirit well.

Good commentary at 2blowhards.
