So, Jen came down to visit for the weekend.
We ate, we shopped, we hung out, we discussed Trent's scarf in the new vid.
We walked, we made muffins, we surfed online for Rome.
And oh yeah...
We went and saw 300 on IMAX, baby!
The 7:15 show was completely sold out (thank god for buying tix online ahead of time), and the theatre was packed with fellow dorks and fans...our gender and age group was sorely lacking, but we made up for it in enthusiasm.
300 is awesome, people.
The action, the costumes, the way it was filmed blew us away. Queen Gorgo is the baddest ass woman on screen today. My Michael (Fassbender) was awesome as Stelios, and Gerry Butler did not disappoint. Every scene was just amazing!
We were speechless when we left the theatre, and spent the next half an hour trying to cram all our observations and thoughts into coherent sentences as we left with goofy grins on our faces.
Awesome, awesome film!
(The only thing lacking, we decided, was NIN's Just Like You Imagined playing on repeat through the movie)
We had such a good time, and I can't wait to see it again!
(And Pat...there is a VERY SPECIAL Gerry treat at the beginning of the film - I think you'll appreciate it, as we did. *big drooling grin*)
