The armies of Persia--a vast horde greater than any the world has ever known--are poised to crush Greece, an island of reason and freedom in a sea of madness and tyranny. Standing between Greece and this tidal wave of destruction are a tiny detachment of but three hundred warriors. Frank Miller's epic retelling of history's supreme moment of battlefield valor is finally collected in a glorious hardcover volume in its intended format-- each two-page spread from the original comics is presented as a single undivided page.

What other movie boasts of having a bunch of actors that have the body of professional wrestlers, and yet have the talent to r...

Into the Valley of Death marched the 300... 0

I had the feeling this was going to be a lot more graphic and grotesque than it turned out to be, which was a pleasant sort of surprise (though the casual nakededity was surprising and not my favorite part of the series).
