"300", the movie

So I saw it today in Imax.

Most excellent action/historical movie I've seen in a while.

Marvelous work by the director and operator.

Lot of cross references, Xerx (Satan) offering Leonidas( Christ) power in exchange for kneeling to him.

And Leonidas DOES KNEEl. Don't be surprised, the best of us have done it at some point in their life HEHE !!!


David (Leonidas) vs Goliath ( Persian monster). Etc etc. Modern day references as well, people dying for freedom. Some scenes were shot like if El Greco had painted them.

Minuses:

- I did not need a fucking "narrator" voice explaining to me what was going on.
- Persian army could be shown more monumental.

Overall, very satisfied. Will certainly go again.

Not a chicks movie unless chicks like a lot of blood on the screen.

"historical"?

We were debating this in length all day long now you come back after seeing it and you proclaim that it's historical.
Hey GS did you say it was "just" a cartoon? Maybe for yu GS but the "regular" crowd thinks it's historical. Was this the intent of this movie?

OK Prof since you were there at the time and witnessed all the events it is hard to argue with you.

There were some "minor" differences with the "known" version of the events which may or may not be true.

I deliberately stayed out of Camels thread and decided to start a new one. If you have a problem with that, you know what to do.

You're too self conscious, relax there. Shlongs can just be a metaphor for other things, let's see if inetd gets it in the other thread.

You won't regret it. But go to IMAX rather than "regular".

Best $15 I spent in a long time. And you are a student, so it will be just $10 for you.
