300. I'm sure this has a very high awareness rating due to relentless advertisements and its apparitional sequelity ....it's like Sin City 2 ! At least in a Frank Miller inky silhouette way. I'm appropriately excited to see it and I'm thinking IMAX for this one. Though I should probably get this off my chest now: Hearing phrases like "if you enjoyed Braveheart and Gladiator, you'll love..." give me pause. Still, it has to be better than Ghost Rider and Wild Hogs which are America's current favorites [choke] to throw money at. Oh public! You never learn. You realize that means we get more movies like those, don't you?

Believe In Me this is a basketball drama from IFC. I don't mean to sound dense or insensitive to the people involved but I'm wondering why indie film bother with the inspirational sports genre.

Maxed Out is a documentary on America's overwhelming debt. Am I in this?
