I'm sure it will be at our IMAX's too, but I don't think I can handle that much intenseness.

Lion King in IMAX was extremely intense, so this movie would be way too mind-blowing.

I believe it looks good, however, dark-colored screens/ shots are not appreciated by my eyes. Seems like the trailer shows scenes often done in night time. *sighs* I would love to see it though.

I think the color of the scenes makes it even more amazing. Adds to it.

I loved the colors they made O Brother, Where Art Thou? Really gave a real feel of the time period (although I wasn't around then to know how it really was)

The clips on TV look VERY CGI.

Compare to Imortal and similar and we have a very strange future for films.

I don't get the trailer. It seems very choppy and CGIish. Although I understand that this is the "style" of the film, I find it hard to watch.

Here's a few fun facts (as I remember them):

300 was filmed almost entirely on blue screen with minimal physical props/landforms to interact with.

300 was filmed with 30 extras - everyone else is a computer based by-product

The final cut of 300 was compressed so the film appeared as a moving watercolor painting (giving it that asthetic appeal).

Can't Wait!

The trailer turned me off as well. The story is based on one of the great battles of history but the trailer makes me tend to think they went for a " look" rather than a story. I don't know if I could take 2 hrs of that " look" without it giving me a headache.

If the two hours of the visuals didn't succeed in giving me a headache then I'm sure the way Gerard Butler screams his lines throughout the entire film would give me a headache on its own!!!

Best,

Tim

I say some weird stuff sometimes, mrbilldentertainer.

They really did do a good job on that movie though. One of my favorites.

There have been some interesting looking films recently. A Scanner Darkly had a really interesting film style if anyone saw that. Very trippy, though.

I turned off A Scanner Darkly after about 10 minutes.

I'm interested in 300, though I'll wait for the DVD.

If you like Frank Miller... today his Martha Washington story with the death of a "Captain America - like" character came all too true.

Sadly.

Bye Cap. Bye Jack (and Joe)

Thanks for the warning Frank.

So, he hasn't improved all that much since "Phantom of the Opera," eh?

My daughter refers to these kinds of films as "Shake stick and yell!"
"There's no time to lose," I heard her say.
"Catch your dreams before they slip away."
"Dying all the time, lose your dreams and you could lose your mind.
Ain't life unkind?"

The movie was really weird, and I only watched a few minutes as well. I just thought the way they made it was pretty interesting.

Choppy? What are you talking about? Better yet what are you watching it on? Probably your computer more than the trailer itself, heh.

And it's a graphic novel, not a historic class movie, what do you expect? If you want history go watch a documentary. Or more to the point, a Frank Miller graphic novel, so look is a big part of it. And things in that trailer look exactly as they do in the graphic novel.
-A single death is a tragedy, a million deaths is a statistic.
-It is easier to fight for one's principles than to live up to them.
-The secret impresses no one. The trick you use it for is everything.

See you space cowboy...

LOL.... You'll have to tell us what you thought of it. I normally like Butler's acting but this performance just seemed over the top.

Looking forward to your review.

Best,

Tim
