I work at a movie theater and patrons mess up movie titles all the time. Here are some of the…
Spartans, prepare for glory!
Based on Frank Miller's graphic novel, "300" is very loosely based the 480 B.C. Battle of Thermopylae, where the King of Sparta led his army against the advancing Persians; the battle is said to have inspired all of Greece to band together against the Persians, and helped usher in the world's first democracy.
THIS IS SPARTA!!!!
Well, no, it isn't. Let me try this.
*clears throat* *deep intake of breath*
'THIS IS A 117 MINUTES OF HOMOEROTIC VISUAL FLUFF IN SLOW MOTION WITH CGI SIXPACKS THAT HAS NOTHING TO DO WITH HISTORY WHATSOEVER. THEY WEAR TINY LEATHER PANTS AND CAPES FOR CRYING OUT LOUD!!'
Yup, much better.
And yes, you can 'like' a 2 1/2 star film.
Disgusting, racist, misogynistic, jingoistic, mindlessly violent bullshit. Absolute trash. 5 stars.
I once watched this over a dude's shoulder whilst we were doing it. It was considerably better than what was going on IRL.
my fave bit is the bit where keanu reeves goes back in time to be bffs with fassbender.
"Every damn quote from this movie."
It's Friday night for fuchia's sakes, and I'm on severe Man of Steel withdrawal. So time to revisit Zack Snyder's magnum opus, the film that will put abs on your abs and chest hair on your testicles (wait, they actually don't have chest hair, like the marble statues that they are).
This is the absolutely true story (every moment of it is exactly how it went down) of 300 bold, brave, beautiful Greeks, guardians of light and justice, truth and the Ame..Greek way, fighting the stenchful wretched hords of Persia and Xerxes. Their absolute unrelenting macho badassery was a tribute to testosterone the world over, and echoes to this day like a sledgehammer against…
Based on Frank Miller's 1998 graphic novel series of the same name, 300 is a fictionalized retelling of the Battle of Thermopylae between Spartan & Persian armies which also succeeds as a visually arresting tale of bravery, courage & patriotism and brings a comic book to life in such a highly stylized manner that it ends up delivering a unique & ultra-cool cinematic experience to most of its viewers.
If I've to sum it up in a sentence, what actually makes this movie work against all odds is its near-perfect blend of stylish direction from Zack Snyder, engrossing tale of heroism, larger-than-life action, arresting cinematography, groundbreaking visual effects, catchy one-liners, intriguing characters, strong performances from its cast, meticulous sound, cut-throat editing & grandeur soundtrack.…
I remember when I thought this was the greatest movie ever. Well, it's not. It's dumb and stupid, but the visuals are still great, even by today's standards. And those one-liners are just awesome.
Looked beautiful. Overall a good film.
300 Spartalı! Bu filmi ilk çıktığı zamanlarda izlemiştim. O zamanlarda 12-13 yaşındaydım ve bu kadar aksiyon dolu film çok izlememiştim. Bu yüzden çok eğlenceli ve mükemmel gelmişti. Yakında bir daha izlemediğim için içeriği konusu hakkında çok fikir veremeyeceğim. Tekrarda izlememeyi düşünüyorum. Benim aklımda o muhteşem bir film olarak kalmasını istiyorum. Size iyi seyirler :).
This is a great guilty pleasure movie with exciting violence and just the right amount of backstory to justify calling it a movie. Certain liberties taken with the truth, but its made for entertainment and thats the job it does well.
Growing up seeing classic fantasy films like Conan sort of ruined this film for me. The over stylized effects and fake blood ruined it. But after a while I guess it grew on me.
Excellent cinematography and effects. Very beautiful in terms of its visual composition. Impressive how they stayed true to the graphic novel.
A guilty pleasure! Every frame of this movie serves as a greek heroic painting.
I understand the Persians were bottlenecked at the cliff but couldnt they have just moved back and shot the Spartans with arrows? But if the Persians used real tactics there wouldn't be sweet slow motion slaying so i guess it's okay.
