Plot:
The epic graphic novel by Frank Miller (Sin City) assaults the screen with the blood, thunder and awe of its ferocious visual style faithfully recreated in an intense blend of live-action and CGI animation. Retelling the ancient Battle of Thermopylae, it depicts the titanic clash in which King Leonidas (Gerard Butler) and 300 Spartans fought to the death against Xerxes (Rodrigo Santoro) and his massive Persian army. Experience history at swordpoint. And moviemaking with a cutting edge.

Audio Commentary
Deleted Scenes
Featurettes

My Thoughts:
The Lord of the Rings.  I understand that the writers were doing this in an allegorical way and that "mythical" creatures were a strong belief for these people, but I just felt it was overdone and gave the film too much of a sci-fi/fantasy feel for what is in reality a historical event.

Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed this and recommend it highly.

Psycho, a review by addicted2dvd



Title: Psycho
Movie Count: 11
TV Ep Count: 3
Other Count: 0
Time Started: 9:30am
Plot:
'Alfred Hitchcock's' masterpiece of the macabre stars 'Anthony Perkins' as the troubled Norman Bates, whose "old dark house" and adjoining motel are not the place to spend a quiet evening. No one knows that better than 'Janet Leigh', the film's ill-fated heroine who is victimized in the now-notorious "shower scene." 'Vera Miles', 'Martin Balsam', 'John Gavin' and 'John McIntire' co-star in Hitchcock's most compelling and terrifying film. Screenplay by Joseph Stefano.

My Thoughts:
I really enjoyed every minute of this movie. I thought Anthony Perkins and Janet Leigh both did a wonderful job.  I have watched this movie a few times since I started to get into classics... and this one never fails to keep my attention. My eyes are always glued to the screen with this great classic. The DVD itself is very good quality and there is a nice collection of extras to check out as well.

My Rating:
Out of a possible 5:
