I loved 300. The battle scenes were so magnificent and beautifully executed that they were like scenes from a savage ballet. I admired the characters, who were honorable, brave, and stoic -- qualities that are missing from or denigrated in popular culture far too often. I appreciated that there were clearly defined heroes and villains. Best of all, I left the theater tonight with renewed belief that freedom and honor are worth fighting -- and dying -- for. I'm definitely seeing this one again.
