I liked it when it came out.

But seeing it again.. it's a piece of shit.

Elephants were 100 feet tall back then though, so that's pretty fucking cool.

That movie sucks the dicks of 10,000 Saracens.

The second one is even worse, except you get to see Eva Green's lovely tits.

This is madness.



I still like it.

It's a comic book movie.

I'll watch it if there's nothing on, it's definitely not a "classic".

I'm watching it on AMC too.

I feel connected to you now, like we're separated lovers looking up at the moon at the same time.

Exactly. It's not a historical movie, it's fiction loosely inspired by real events.

Exactly, it's a comic book, or graphic novel, or whatever they are calling them nowadays to make dumb people sound smart.  From a cinematic critique, I would say it is supposed to a verbal telling of the Spartans bravery from the point of view of the sole Spartan survivor, Dilios ( the guy with the eye patch).  As with many verbal stories, the story teller sometimes embellishes the deeds and the tales get bigger and scarier as it is told and retold.  







jMHO and what little I took from a cinema class in college.

It's a fantastical retelling of a foundational story of a myth (in the good sense) of the western world.

It's a story about serving your country, about obeying your orders, and being willing to bravely die to the last man in the face of insurmountable odds, in disciplined formations, in stoic silence to glory sung or unsung, which has been the cornerstone of western armies ever since.

GD fellated this movie to no end years ago.

Shitty fuckin movie.

I liked em both.

As a movie, pretty awesome. You can pretty much pause any scene and it looks like art. The soundtrack was pretty great too.

Great visual display.

After seeing it I really wanted Zack Snyder to make a Star Wars movie. Imagine it looking like 300

Then man of steel came out and I changed my Mind. [XX(

The Lightning scene in the second movie was awesome. and Eva Green.

300 7/10
300 2 4/10

I can't think for myself, so I will hate 300 too and you can feel validated.

300 was a great movie.

It's hardly a documentary, but it's a good movie.

I was watching that yesterday and thought about posting a similar thread...

i honestly actually gave it a chance this time around, but once again found the acting to be horrible and overall the whole thing was just bad, bad, bad.

only two kinds of people could possibly like that movie..12 year olds, and homosexuals..

Meet The Spartans is best Spartans
Link Posted: 8/31/2015 8:37:04 AM EDT
David Wenham, narrator and Spartan soldier Dilios in 300 did great work IMHO.



"Remember us." As simple an order as a king can give. "Remember why we died." For he did not wish tribute or song. No monuments, no poems of war and valour. His wish was simple: "Remember us," he said to me. That was his hope.

Should any free soul come across that place, in all the countless centuries yet to be, may all our voices whisper to you from the ageless stones: Go tell the Spartans, passer-by, that here, by Spartan law, we lie.

So my king died, and my brothers died... Barely a year ago, long I pondered my king's cryptic talk of victory. But time has proven him wise. For from free Greek to free Greek, the word was spread that bold Leonidas and his 300, so far from home, laid down their lives, not just for Sparta, but for all Greece and the promise this country holds!

Now, here on this ragged patch of earth called Plataea, Xerxes' hordes face obliteration! Just there the barbarians huddle, sheer terror gripping tight their hearts with icy fingers, knowing full well what merciless horrors they suffered at the swords and spears of 300. Yet they stare now across the plain at 10,000 Spartans commanding 30,000 free Greeks! The enemy outnumber us a paltry three to one; good odds for any Greek. This day we rescue a world from mysticism and tyranny, and usher in a future brighter than anything we could imagine! Give thanks, men! To Leonidas, and the brave 300! To victory!

Yes - the entire movie is a motivational speech by Dilios to other Spartans. That's why the turncoat is SO ugly, and the perfidy in the Senate is SO egregious, and why the elephants are SO large.

I find it's a fun movie I've watched several times since seeing it at the theatre. The movie version of the "come and get them" scene still gives me goosebumps and is way better than the comic version.

Yep, the folks that concentrate on the Molon Labe aspect always tend lose sight of that.

Dilios, I trust that "scratch" hasn't made you useless.

Hardly, my lord, it's just an eye. The gods saw fit to grace me with a spare.

Leonidas should have sent Ephialtes to guard the goat path and tell him he's in charge of it. Might have bought them a little more time.

Yes I really like that movie.  The second was not as good but still good enough for me to buy on DVD which is rare.  It was however not a documentary on the battle of Thermopylae.  I chalk it up to a movie about the "legend".  Much like the Iliad it probably much more interesting then the real battle.

I enjoy the first one from time to time. I watched the second one once and thought it was terrible.

It's a great chest thumping movie and gets me motivated to stay in shape.
