Title: 300
Post by: Waffo on March 23, 2007, 04:13:55 PM
Decided to make a new thread.  Did anyone go to watch 300 yet?  My Anthropology/Ancient Civilizations teachers gave extra credit if my class did.  It helped during the Greek test.  ^^

It's based on a comic about the battle of Thermopylae, which was a real battle.  The movie changes some facts around, of course, but it's pretty cool to watch.  It's a battle where around 1300 people from Greek city-states (only 300 Spartans in the movie) fought against a lot more Persians to hold off the Persian empire.

You liked it a lot, huh?  I wonder if it's weird that I was about to cry at the end, even though it's such a violent and bloody movie...

Yeah, it was soooo awesome. I liked how it wasn't as direct and comic book-ish as Sin City, but through different techniques, it still had an unreal feel to it... like how every single shot makes everyone look badass... kind of like reading a comic book where every frame is obviously going to look cool. Not just a normal movie about Spartans.

I can't wait for the "sequel" to be based on another Greek battle. :D

There's going to be a sequel?  I guess 300 was a pretty big success, then.

Yeah, it's been really popular, and not just with comic book fans... I think Sin City helped out a lot raising "awareness" of Frank Miller to all types of people.

Persia comes to take over the city-state, Spartan's don't just let armies prance in and take whatever they want, so they fight the Persians. However, there is also bribery and betrayal within the plot.

She didn't watch half the movie and she said she liked it still? She's a dumbass. :P
