“Then we will fight in the shade”

Yesterday, I went with a friend to see 300, the movie based on the Frank Miller comic book about the Spartan battle of Thermopylae in Greece. It was very well done – stylized, engaging, and a lot of fun. It turns out that quite a few parts were pulled from historical accounts of the battle. My friend Ged has written up his take on it over at his blog, along with some interesting links about the making of the movie and background on the actual battle.
