I'm persian and I am not a three headed monster :/
I love this director's style, its a nice variety and much more improved compared to his last.

I am half persian but I'm a Dragonfly based Masked Cyborg lol

The 300 movie looks very good, when I heard of it on myspace I thought about an older movie called The 300 Spartans, based on the same events. Btw, Those are the guys responsible for 300 pictures on myspace if you didn't know.

My favourite line so far was when the Persian Ambassador came to Sparta to demand surrender....

Ambassador --> This is madness!

Who is going to the movies to watch this? This movie would just be another Alexander or Troy with all the eye candy but no engaging story. I'm afraid this movie would not be your hard-earned money's worth.

"Then we will fight in the shade." Trailer looks completely awesome. Not bad for Zack Snyder, never expected much, but he could turn out to be a good director.

I just saw it and it was worth the money. Story-wise, it feels like an epic poem. so if you are looking for a sappy romance or something, you won't find it here. but if you're looking for a narrative about heroes and great deeds, this is the movie. it is NOTHING like troy. this is what troy should have been. troy - pansy = 300

9 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-03-10 10:47 ID:DhHyFru6

errr troy - pansy + win = 300 rather

It looks stupid and lame. Not to mention ridiculous. I hope Hollywood loses money and learns to make good films.

11 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-03-12 00:12 ID:3GnZ6JRE

I heard they threw in a sex scene for no particular reason.
How disappointing.

They're perfect for describing what is stupid, lame, and ridiculous.

15 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-03-12 07:56 ID:JCzLRRlD


You are stupid, lame and ridiculous. I hope you die in a fire.

16 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-03-12 21:22 ID:fQeVO3u/

This was probably the best movie I've seen in theaters since LOTR and The Matrix (the old school one). Definitley worth every penny and minute spent for it, its freakin awesome. So its got some sex scenes, blah blah. THe Persian freak show army is kinda exageratted, but thats the whole point. My favorite quote from the Queen:

Sounds strange.

18 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-03-13 22:26 ID:dM/DWOy3

Hmm, looks like a must-see... I've heard only good reviews so far.. Some people said it was a little cheezy over-the-top at times when they played a few guitar style riffs as the guys prepared to walk into battle in slo-mo, but I'm certainly fine with a little of that, especially considering it's done somewhat in the same style as the recent "Sin City", which I loved the art/comic style of.

19 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-03-14 05:00 ID:XQcBgBzo

I wouldn't say that it was similar in style as sin city. I think they are very different. Still the direction was very nice.

Blood, orcs, ninjas, boobies, and a persian king basically demanding buttsecks = win in my book.

Watched it from a DVD-screener rip yesterday. The movie is pretty good for an american film. Pleasantly few cliches. Wouldn't watch it again without fast forward; in retrospect the only scenes worth seeing once more are the slow-motion fight scenes.

21 Name: arun!!tbl4QDoA : 2007-03-28 13:55 ID:LTDuGpDf

blatantly racist. breath-taking visuals, no story, no character development

Why do they have to be against mysticism?

23 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-03-29 09:58 ID:taakoY2L

This is not a spartan movie. It's american.

24 Name: beertax : 2007-03-30 03:50 ID:haV+OJzE

300 preaches against mysticism because it is one of the key enemies of logic, which is the foundation of freedom. Reverse-think if you have trouble getting it. Despite the movie, freedom can only be truly achieved, to the extent that we can enjoy it in reality, if one achieves free thought. Free thought can be achieved only if one's mind is founded in reason - aka logic. Mysticism, on the other hand, defies logic and demands that one pay homage to what cannot be explained, or understood, or believed. Throughout history, mysticism has been of the key weapons of tyrants of all color. Read Ayn Rand - she explains this far better than I ever can.

Lots of abs.

26 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-03-31 01:27 ID:9usqh/S+


I don't think mysticism is antithetical to freedom.

You can safely ignore >>24, who is just yet another teenager who read Ayn Rand. He will grow out of it soon enough.

Uhh... the french did?

Which is kind of amusing, since the French invented modern democracy too.

34 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-04-09 10:34 ID:N0zPW5sS

All the people I've talked to who actually hate this movie are the kind of people who seem to hate enjoyment, because they'd rather be showing off just how intelligent and sophisticated they are.

It was the stupidest thing I've seen in a long time, yeah. It was also the most fucking awesome. It had style, too, and it was just well made. The number of high profile films you can say that about seems to be constantly decreasing.

35 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-04-12 07:46 ID:DhHyFru6

fucking signed. Tons of people are all like "oh it's so anti-gay blah blah blah pro war blah blah blah look at how i'm intelligent blah blah blah"

I had such high hopes for this movie :/ But I found it a bit dissapointing. I'm not saying it was bad or anything, but just... blah. Enjoyable, but nothing special.

37 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-04-22 20:50 ID:zkqXa4PM

I would love this movie if I were american/whoever the movie stands for

But, for most of the world: we like the the visuals, dont ask us about anything else. we hate it.

I was a fan of the original 1962 film The 300 Spartans. So naturally I figured this would be a good movie. I was wrong... IT WAS A FRIGGIN SPECTACULAR AWESOME MOVIE! The only part I didn't like about this movie was probably turning Xerces into an adrogynus wuss.

39 Name: Couch Potato : 2007-04-26 01:05 ID:KC1hEhBM

>>38 well the movie was based on the 300 comic (Visual novel if you're that anally retentive) and not a remake of the 300 Spartans so I have no problems with it.
