Ten years from now we may look back at 300 as the movie that heralded the final shift away from the star-driven, mega-budget blockbuster paradigm. In an increasingly risk-managed world, why not spend 60 million dollars on a whole movie instead of 25 million on Tom Cruise or one of the Wills? Hot Fuzz signals the definite arrival of Edgar Wright and Simon Pegg that was so strongly hinted at in Shaun of the Dead. Ray Harryhausen fans should be stoked about the new release of the legend's 20 Million Miles to Earth. Paulo Costanzo fans should feel likewise about Everything's Gone Green. Maybe. Me? I'm all about The Archie Show.
