Hot damn, 300 is a good movie. It's a beautifully shot, with great action, and true to the book. I think the most remarkable part about the movie is how much it feels like a glossy, high quality, graphic novel. The cinematography, color, contrast, action sequences, costumes, actors, everything -- wonderful.
I also checked out "The Natural History of the Chicken," a PBS documentary about chickens and their owners. It was recommended by my barber, a chicken owner, and it didn't disappoint. Check it out if you're looking for something light hearted, feathery, and a little off beat.
