Fab reviews! And yeah you can get a blackout. Just READ, no need to do anything else. Go for it!

I admit to loving 300, but I was only introduced to it because I was a huge Gerard Butler fan and he was playing Leonidas. Had he not been in it I doubt it would have crossed my radar. As it is, it holds a really special place in my heart for many many reasons. Mostly because I met some of my best friends at the premiere. My name is also on the special features disc in theUK 2-disc DVD.

39 Steps is a classic which I am yet to read. I can recall it being on our bookcase at home when I was a kid.

I really must watch the film of 300 when it's next on tv, I don't know why I haven't to be honest, especially as I have such an interest in the battle of Thermopylae. And Gerard Butler is indeed a good incentive to watch it, lol!

I'd think of it as comic book movie before historical movie to be honest. It's literalyl lifted straight from the graphic novel. Minimal dialogue ans highly stylized.
