Movie of the Year:

300

Almost no film released in 2007 arrived in theaters with higher expectations, but certainly no other actually met those expectations as well as Zack Snyder's comic book adaptation 300. Recreating writer Frank Miller's graphic novel panel for blood-soaked panel, Snyder upped the creative ante from not only his own previous film, 2004's Dawn of the Dead remake, but Robert Rodriguez' groundbreaking Miller adaptation Sin City, in the process telling a majestic story that recalls some of Hollywood's biggest classics, not to mention evokes a storytelling tradition that dates back as far as the earliest Greek and Roman myths. Gerard Butler, previously a fantasy object only for women, became an immortal cinematic hero to all as King Leonidas, the wise, clever, and impossibly-chiseled king of Sparta, while Lena Headey more than holds her own in the film's testosterone-charged ensemble as his headstrong queen. And while to some the film's greatest legacy may be its success facilitating a long-awaited adaptation of Alan Moore's Watchmen, suffice it to say that in 2007, at least, 300 has truly earned its place in movie history.
