Jeannette and I saw 300 at a midnight showing at Southdale last night. I think they had it playing at 5 screens, and it looks like all were sold out. I don't think I've ever seen so many people at a midnight showing before. The movie was good, and it strongly appealed to a male demographic of 18 to 24 year olds. There was plenty of blood, and gore, and nudity and sex. Yes, there was a tiny message about fighting for freedom in there but that's overshadowed by a 2 minute scene of a naked teenage girl writhing about on drugs as the oracle. I think this movie will make a lot of money.
