Two types of people LOVED this movie:

1. Macho, war movie fans, including many in the military.

and

2. Gay men.

Bought it at lunch, probably won’t see it today though, finally got a good wave of DVDs so I also got the new Bab5 and Hot Fuzz. Been looking forward to new B5 through many rumors and false starts so that is the must see the minute I get home.

I know. I was just pointing out that one of the oddest couplings of movie fans propelled its success.

The first installment of the Lost Tales anthology series.
http://www.midwinter.com/lurk/guide/118.html

JMS said that he plans to include the Telepath War at some point. Good reason to buy this one, encourage WB to greenlight more and finally get the B5 story we’ve wanted to see.

Obviously you are a crypto-gay-macho-war movie fan who is probably in the military.

"I am a middle-aged grandmother...What does that tell you...?"

It tells me you started having kids way too early. You shouldn't be a grandparent until you get older :-)

Actually, I was a teenaged mom and wife. It was difficult, but it sure was worth it! The 300 movie speaks to me about absolutes, and that is what a successful teenaged wife/mom deals in, plus the war deployment thingy! I really was as strong and fearless as Leonidas, and I was just as rock solid confident. God forbid I would have wavered...

I have that picture too. :)

I have some posters I bought off ebay. They're not on my br wall yet. It's a very delicate situation however. I don't think hubby would appreciate it if I lay in our bed staring at half naked 8 pack men. lol

Good point. Kinda off topic but not too far off, I saw Jon Voight on Hannity and Colmes the other night. Pretty impressive.

I picked it up yesterday. (Along with B5 and Hot Fuzz. I think Stu and I share the same tastes.) Enjoyed it quite a bit. (And Hot Fuzz was great.)

But I also purchased an MP3 file of some of the Mystery Science Theater guys riffing the movie as well. Enjoyed that too.

I'm a girl. I just finished watching the movie and I *loved* it!

In the interest of full disclosure, I'm married to a macho, war movie fan soldier. :-)

When the Spartans were holding the line and they were hit by the Persians I think my heart stopped for a second or three.
