It’s been about five years since the film came out. Watching it again with some female friends I once again experienced the sexiness of all that testosterone onscreen, wondering why aren’t there men that beautiful and manly hanging around my world? I love that King Leonidas (Gerard Butler), as powerful as he was, turned to his wife because she was his partner, his love – that is so intensely sexy.

Some of my favorite moments in clips:

This is Sparta!

King Leonidas in action.

Stelios (Michael Fassbender) “Then we will fight in the shade!

“My Queen. My wife. My love.”
