Those two movies adapted very well from his books, also.

Las night we watched Elizabeth: The Golden Age.
I Am Legend was written by Richard Matheson in 1954 and is a good book. It was first put on film in 1964 as Last Man on Earth, and then remade in 1971 as The Omega Man.

300
I couldn't decide if I was watching a movie or a cartoon. I typically love these kinds of movies, but Troy and Gladiator it ain't. It's just a bit over the top.... One viewing was enough for this movie.

I am with you, it could have been a spectacular movie. Hollywood needs to stop centering many of their movies around the special effects and go back to centering around the plot. I love special effects, but only when used to help tell the story, not take it over.

I wonder if you all don't realize that the actions in the film "300" actually happened. This is a true account of that battle, certainly not a cartoon. Hollywood may have taken a couple of liberties to make the story more interesting, but it is right on target.
