We saw 300 tonight. Our friend works for a local radio station and got us press passes. Yay for freeness.

I am not sure I could say I enjoyed it. It was amazing looking, and a great story. The violence was upsetting and yet not too horrifying. I cannot believe that it was only an R rating though. Anyone who takes a child to that movie deserves something ugly to happen to them. It was so violent and porny and so much blood and nudity. One of the sex scenes was hilarious (unintentionally) and incredibly graphic the other one. . .well the director almost lost me with that one.

Not to movie directors. Rape is not a plot device. Stop including rape in movies just to make people uncomfortable.

I am not sure that I will ever watch it again but it is highly recommended. Especially for free.
