Box Office Soars -- No Mystery Here
The big news at the movie houses this weekend was the amazing success of a film called 300. Now, I'm not one for violence and beheadings, and lately I've grown frustrated with docudramas that rehash old news.
Yet 300 blew me away. And not simply because of Gerard Butler's tight abs. ;-) Visually this movie, based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller, was amazing. I was also pleasantly surprised by the strong heroine and her relationship with a powerful ruler. The story was a traditional one of good versus evil as the soldiers fought for freedom and honor against incredible odds.
The success of this movie proves to me how much we're drawn to strong, larger-than-life heroes who, by the way, make great romance heroes!
Who are some of your favorite heroes of books and movies?
