I don't think I could watch the whole thing, but as background? 300 is sort of amazing. Far too violent for my sensibilities, but oh! the fight choreography.

I ache to pick up a sword.
I feel: restlessrestless

I found the violence so cartoony as to be completely non-disturbing. Or maybe I was just, um, distracted by other... elements... of the... plot. Yeah. Plot. That's it. Wheee!

Your icon is genius.

re: the plot, I found David Wenham's... erm... storyline... most engaging.

I'm not into blood for blood sake type movies. Yes, there is violence, it's a war movie. But the cinematography, costuming and PLOT all pull you away from negative reactions to the violence. The cinematography really makes it surreal. And the costuming...well, I'm betting I know what one bullet left was distracted about...

Awright, let's just make a definite date for swords and ponies. We'll plan an extra couple of hours into our day and play with swords on Jeanne's lawn.

Just watched it today for the first time. It was typical Miller violence - there but not realistic. What about the competition? Are you up to it?

Re: 300

First of all... *friends!*

Secondly, I still don't think I can watch the whole thing.

Thirdly, sure. What the hell. What are the rules/parameters/consequences?

Didst thou sayest swords? I am a very lapsed fencer, and would love to fool with foils, now that my shoulder seems to have recovered. Paulie is quite a good fencer, and totally ambidextrous, very Princess Bridelike.
