Did you guy see it yet? I went last Friday on opening night. Scored FREE tickets from the theater (how I still have no idea, but FYI: flirting w/ the ticket girl helps!) and saw it on a DIGITAL screen!
F'n Amazing!!! So totally true to Frank and Lynn's work, and then added a handful of stuff that adds so much to the story. Leonidas' wife was amazing, and her role is expanded on a lot.
If you can stomach violence, this is THE movie you need to see. :D

Like the Ghost Rider thread, I'll have to join in at a later date. I was able to borrow the 300 HC from a friend so I hope to at least read it before seeing the movie.

I thoroughly enjoyed it. Loved the cinematography, loved the art direction, thought the acting was solid. Very nice physiques on the boys as well. ;)
However, that has to be one of the most violent movies I've ever seen. And the violence wasn't played for laughs, like Pulp Fiction or Kill Bill. This was straight-on bloody mayhem.
After either the decapitation or the leg removal, I leaned over to Eric and requested that we please go see a movie with puppies and unicorns next. :D
Historical accuracy is another matter altogether, but I generally don't expect that, especially after movies like Troy. ::shudder::

I enjoyed it too. Too bad the ending was spoiled for me, stupid history. Thanks for ruining it for the rest of us! Seriously though, I came out just thinking that Watchmen may be in good hands. Good performances by the major actors, great visuals, very true to both the look and the spirit of the comic. And being from Michigan, home of the Michigan State Spartans, I'm pretty much pre-disposed to love the story. I knew that most of the action was going to be in slow-mo, and I was a bit worried that I would get sick of it, but I was pleasantly suprised when I didn't. It was used to great affect here. I wouldn't want to see it in every movie (see: Bullet-time in every non Matrix movie it was used in), but it worked here.
