More engaging than Troy, the tepid and somewhat similar epic of ancient Greece, 300 is also comparable to Sin City in that the actors were shot on green screen, then added to digitally created backgrounds. The effort pays off in a strikingly stylized look and huge, sweeping battle scenes. However, it's not as to-the-letter faithful to Miller's source material as Sin City was. The plot is the same, and many of the book's images are represented just about perfectly. But some extra material has been added, including new villains (who would be considered "bosses" if this were a video game, and it often feels like one) and a political subplot involving new characters and a significantly expanded role for the Queen of Sparta (Lena Headey). While this subplot by director Zack Snyder (Dawn of the Dead) and his fellow co-writers does break up the violence, most fans would probably dismiss it as filler if it didn't involve the sexy Headey. Other viewers, of course, will be turned off by the waves of spurting blood, flying body parts, and surging testosterone. (The six-pack abs are also relentless, and the movie has more and less nudity--more female, less male--than the graphic novel.) Still, as a representation of Miller's work and as an ancient-themed action flick with a modern edge, 300 delivers. --David Horiuchi

|who has rebuilt their dvd collections with the new formats?||
As soon as HD-DVD was rendered defunct, I jumped aboard the Blu Ray wagon. I figured I had had 10 good years with DVD and had pretty much amassed every title I was interested in (I have over 800 standard DVD titles). At first I found the prospect of replacing my library quite demoralizing, but... Read More

I recently encountered a similar restriction on a different item. Is there a time period after which this restriction is lifted?

DRM (digital rights management) is just another worthless attempt at preventing casual copying which only inconveniences and/or creates problems for honest people.
Download your "digital copy" from a Bittorrent site and you won't have to worry about serial numbers or the various DRM... Read More
