“300”

Nothing to do with Digital Heritage (or perhaps…everything do to with Digital Heritage!), but here is a movie that I am looking forward to watch. It’s important to remember that this movie is based on Frank Miller’s comic book ‘300’ and not directly on Herodotus’ account of events, hence the various factual inaccuracies (actually, the historical accuracies may be more interesting).
