I just don't get why 300 wasn't nominated for a Special Effects or Art Direction AA. Bummer.

Ah, well. Here's my little tribute to this visual feast of a film. Spaaaah...taaaans!

A panel (above left) from Frank Miller's graphic novel 300. On the right, the corresponding scene as it appears in the film. And the book, 300: The Art of the Film, is terrific (cover art below) - it might be a good choice for those who appreciate the film's artistry, but can't stomach the graphic violence in motion.

It really is an odd omission. I've got to check out the graphic novel.

I wouldn't be able to take the violence on screen, but I think I need to try the novel. Have you seen "300 the PG trailer" on youtube? It's hilariously funny. Especially the end.

I have not seen this, but now I know I need to (with one hand over my eyes, of course).
