Gates of Fire

A few years back I read a book called Gates of Fire by Stephen Pressfield about the battle of Thermopolye and thought to myself "Wow how have they not made a movie based on this book yet?"  Then several months ago I went to the theatre and saw previews for the movie 300 for the first time and I was totally amp’ed.  After a little research I found out Frank Miller (writer/director/etc. for 300 and Sin City as well as creator of numerous  comic books)  didn’t base the movie on  Stephen Pressfield’s book  but instead based it on a comic book he wrote which he based on a movie he saw as a kid called 300 Spartans.  Needless to say I was a little disappointed by this fact but I went to see the movie anyway.  Though it was far from similar to Stephen Pressfield’s book it was still a really good flick.
