Battle of Thermopylae

One of my favorite battle movies when I was a kid was The 300 Spartans.

It's based on the true story of the battle of Thermopylae where a small ancient Greek force heroically took on a much larger army of invading Persians.

And while I enjoyed the movie, it did suffer from a limited budget.

So I am delighted to see that an updated version is coming out next spring called 300.

Of course, I am always wary that Hollywood will screw up the story, but Victor Davis Hanson gives it good review.

I can't wait.
