I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
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.
Optisch bombastisch, leider ist die Story nicht gerade ein highlight der erzählkunst.
Cada vez que la veo me gusta mas. Todo un regalo para los ojoes en cuanto a lo expectacular que es, lo que transmite y lo que te hace sentir. Imprescindible para todo cinéfilo.
A really exciting, cinematic, ultraviolent action spectacle that actually improves with viewings. So many iconic moments, this fantasy story based on a real event is a really enjoyable piece of tosh-cinema, with a roaring Butler carrying along the jaunty bloodletting with suitable roaring, shouting and flexing, backed up by buff guys in leather shorts- perfect armour for a battlefield.
The only weakness in the whole thing is the subplot involving the queen and a slimy politician (film would be much better without that drag), which wasn't in the original (brilliant) graphic novel.
Visually splendid (and faithful) adaptation of Frank Miller's graphic novel, itself based on one of history's most fascinating battles. Extremely violent and hyperstylized, with impressive effects (and composition) that make beautiful art of blood spills. Character design and costumes are also terrific. It must be said, though, that behind all the visual candy, there is also a compelling story of good versus evil.
Zack Snyder really broke out with "Dawn of the Dead", and now he's dealing with a much different swarm: of warriors, which isn't to say that this isn't more bonkers than a zombie film. This may be an army of 300, but the IQ is only about 30 or something, although it is a lot more masculine than the usual lame-brain opus starring Gerard Butler, even if it isn't exactly masculine in the proper way. This... is... Chipendales! Trojan might blow the gals' hair back, but if Spartan was a competing sex product brand, then it would apparently blow men's hair... and heads off. This film can't figure out if it wants to be homoerotic or mantastically violent, but either…
Os soldados espartanos dão as próprias vidas para defender as suas liberdades. Gerard Butler entra no espírito do rei, do descendente de Hércules, do real super soldado.
Embora tenha algumas poucas inconsistências de roteiro, elas são totalmente ignoradas e passam muito despercebido.
Funciona em todas as maneiras que deve funcionar.
I am always 100% honest when it comes to reviewing a movie. I have to be honest. I didn't like "300" overall. It does have cool action sequences, a good story, and it looks beautiful. But I found myself uninterested in the characters and I found myself bored for a good portion of this movie. I didn't care who won the war, I was just waiting for the credits. But I have to admit, it was pretty fast paced in a lot of the scenes, even if I found myself bored threw a lot of it. Overall, "300" is an overrated movie.
Bit gay.so I watch it again....
Eye candy. Homoerotic undertones.
