With 300, a blood-strewn retelling of that apotheosis of Spartan military glory, the Battle of Thermopylae, cinema has once again proven its ability to incorporate every other mass-media art form. Director Zack Snyder and his computer wizards have made the best example yet of the movie-as-comic-book. Based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller, whose testosterone-soaked storytelling has made him a genre favorite, 300 captures not only the look and feel of its source material, but its essence as well.

The big boys of comic books like Batman and The Hulk all have movies on the way this summer. But a slew of films based on lesser-known superheroes (ever heard of Ant-Man?) are also in the works. The runaway success of Iron Man, which grossed $200 million worldwide its opening weekend and has already spawned plans for a sequel, proved that an able cast and solid storytelling can turn a second-tier superhero into box-office gold. "A good story, good filmmaking and a talented cast can make all the difference in the world," said Tom Ortenberg, president of theatrical films for Lionsgate Films.

Frank Miller created Sin City for the comics pages and he was determined that's where it would stay. Outside those pages, he was certain, he would lose control of his highly idiosyncratic, graphically over-the-top vision of a city gone bad, where sex and violence are the rules rather than the exceptions. In Sin City, the women are defined by their G-strings and stiletto heels, the men by their profane speech, their rough-and-tumble manners and their skills with a gun. The last thing Miller wanted was to see things prettied up for the silver screen.

There isn't a thing about TBS' remake of "High Noon" that isn't as good or better in the 1952 original. Well, the filmmakers do avoid a reprise of one of Hollywood's more celebrated gaffes: In the original final scene, when Marshal Will Kane (Gary Cooper) disgustedly throws his badge to the ground, the camera distinctly shows two badges lying there. But it's hard to imagine anyone spending millions of dollars and devoting two hours of prime-time to rectifying that single mistake. Wondering how many pieces of tin would be on the ground at least provided an excuse to see "High Noon" 2000 through to the end. Not that there's anything torturously wrong with the film.

THE DEATH OF Joseph A. Harvey Jr., who was attacked and stabbed by a group of teen-age boys Friday, hit a little too close to home for me. Harvey left his home about 5 p.m. to escort a family friend, a woman, to the bus stop. He was on his way back home when three boys attacked him. They "punched, kicked, threw bottles at him and stabbed him in the back of the left leg," said Detective Donny Moses, a spokesman for the Baltimore Police Department. Harvey staggered into Charlie's Chinese Carryout in the 5200 block of Park Heights Ave. He died a short time later at Sinai Hospital.
