'300' Movie Review

'300' Movie Review

Prepare for Glory!!!!!!!!!!

Just attended a private screening of 300 earlier this week and boy, was it bloody. Bloody fantastic!!! Standout performances from the entire cast including Gerard Butler (King Leonidas), Lena Headey (Queen Gorgo), Dominic West (Theron), and Rodrigo Santoro (Xerxes).

300 is the second graphic novel by Frank Miller to hit the silver screen and is stylized similarly as the first (2005′s Sin City). This time around, the story is more compelling. There are amazing Lord of the Rings-ish battle scenes, witty banter, comical moments (King Leonidas bites into an apple right after a battle scene) and tender scenes between the king the queen. (Gerard Butler fans, the luck of the Scottish will bring you Gerard‘s posterior in all its glory.)

So far, 300 has garnered an unheard of 100% freshness rating on Rotten Tomatoes. Here’s what some of top reviewers had to say:

  • “A blustery, bombastic, visually arresting account of the Battle of Thermopylae as channeled through the rabid imagination of graphic novelist Frank Miller.” — Variety
  • “Frank Miller’s graphic novel about an ancient Greek battle comes to vivid life.” — Hollywood Reporter
  • “In between all the blood and guts, 300′s careful costuming and sensuous style is intensely erotic.” — CinemaBlend

Gerard was also interviewed on Friday on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno. Queen Latifah was flirting with him the whole time saying things like, ‘You shave your whole body alone?’ Hubba, hubba. Watch the video below!

Gerard will be making a Monday appearance on The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson. Set your TiVo’s now!

300 opens in theaters (including IMAX) nationwide on Friday, March 9.

He’s hot, but what’s with the “crotch shot” pics? Some bizarre “shout out” to Britney?

Poor Gerard, he didn’t know Latifah is gay! It was hilarious watching a gay woman have fun with a straight man who didn’t know she was gay. His gaydar is waaaay off!

I’m so excited for this movie. Gerry was so nice when I met him, so I really wish him the best in his career!

This was so amusing haha. Gerard

crabbypants @ 03/04/2007 at 2:45 am

holy smokes, he’s seriously hot and gorgeous…and hilarious. I was laughing the whole time. Apparently looks could also come with sense of humour, lol.

He is the sexiest man alive!

Queen Bee @ 03/04/2007 at 7:13 am

Thanks Jared! I totally don’t watch Leno but great interview. Regardless is she’s gay or not Queen Latifah seemed to be feeling Gerard. Who wouldn’t!

I hope this catapult’s Gerard up there with the A-Listers like he deserves. Loved him ever since Dracula 2000!

That man has large lovely hands:P

That man can get my WHOLE CHECK

DAMN!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Does Queen act gay? Cause I’ve never noticed it.

How does one act gay? Did you expect her to start making out with another woman while taping the show? I think people assume she’s gay because she’s never seen with a man and as far as I know I’ve never heard her in a straight relationship, but there’s no real proof she’s gay.

Also, even if gay, How do you know she is not bisexual? how do you know Gerard isn’t gay and isn’t in on the joke as you claim?

The man has charisma any one of any sexual orientation could see that. It was fun and made what is your usual boring talk show interview interesting and fun!

The energy between him and Latifa was precious. MY LORD!!! What a yummy guy!!! Flirting is an art. Gay or whatever, they were clearly enjoying each other. I loved the end where he turned away from Jay to her.

He is the hotness. This movie will do for him what Gladiator did for Russell Crowe – make him an instant superstar.

AM I MISSING SOMETHING????
DID QUEEN LATIFAH COME OUT OF THE CLOSET OR SOMETHING????????

angiefan jsr @ 03/09/2007 at 5:05 pm

I’ve seen him in a lot of movies and he’s always good actor. Daniel Craig is now s superstar but Butler is still considered chracter actor. Hope this will give him a leverage.

queen latifah is gay???

Thank you SO much for that! I swear, Gerard is just walking, talking sex. I love him!

I seriously doubt that Queen Latifah is gay. Just because she doesn’t put her business out there for everyone to know doesn’t mean anything. Good for her for being able to keep her personal stuff under wraps.
