300: the rise of an empire came out and I was super excited to see it. I loved the first one, not just the story and the way it was handled, but the visuals! The desaturated colour looked so great and payed homage to Frank Miller’s original artwork without committing to black and white. The bright, blown out highlights and the dark, inky shadows interspersed with the muted tones was incredible. Very glad to see the same treatment in the sequel. the desaturation also makes the vibrant red blood that much more vibrant and red!
