300:
Most of the dialog was laughable, but the amount of eye candy definitely compensated for it. Fighting scenes were plain awesome imo.

Will be re watching Code 46 tonight. Beautiful Orwellian type film. ->link<-

300 looks awesome. The fighting scenes are just beautiful! I think the history will be great too. Can't wait to see it. (I will see it next week).

Other than that, i'm waiting for spider-man 3! Very Happy

hmm. well, there's a couple of questions lurking in the back of my mind, though this avenue of inquiry will doubtless lead to howls of protest about "no politics". First, what was of such military significance to the Persians that they would throw away tens of thousands of soldier's lives fighting the 300 Spartans entrenched in an unassailable mountain pass? Secondly, why were the Greeks so determined to hold this pass at all costs, i.e. even accepting the total annhilation of all the defenders? We see later, (a couple of centuries later...) that Alexander succeeded, where this group failed, to dislodge the Persians who ruled from Egypt to India for a couple hundred years at least. In those days (oops, now we are violating the no religion clause!) Zoroastrianism was the official Persian state religion. Recently, (i.e. last week!) the Zoroastrians, AND official Iranian government alike, celebrated the new year, an ancient tradition carried over into modern day Persia, (which, while having converted officially to the Islamic branch of Judaism, and having repudiated their "homegrown" religion of Zarathustra, nevertheless, still maintains the calendar from 3000 years ago.) Zoroastrianism's superiority as a religion is attested to by preservation of this truly ancient tradition, i.e. Spring equinox equates, LOGICALLY, to the new year. One may or may not like Zarathustra, but for my money, his ideas were VASTLY superior to the other monotheists, at least some of whom were imprisoned, in those days, in Baghdad, if I am not mistaken, where they fell under the influence of this famous Persian religion, Zoroastrianism....Yes, it is very curious how the Jews, unknown to most of them, copied some parts of Zoroastrianism, and integrated it into their own religion. But, I doubt that the Hollywood (== 99% Jews) version of the 300 will illustrate any of these points. Incidently, for those looking beyond ancient Greece, to the Chinese silk route (active in those days, two thousand five hundred years ago,), it is quite interesting that Bukhara and Samarkand, both important rest stops for the caravans travelling back and forth on this ancient highway, (i.e. modern day Uzbekistan--i.e. uzbek is a member of the TURKISH-MONGOLIAN language group, not Persian) followed Zoroastrianism too, and just last week Uzbekistan also, celebrated the new year, in complete oblivion of Zarathustra. Now, that would make an interesting movie: How the Chinese troops fought off marauding bandits in the desertic terrain in an effort to reach the Bosporus to trade with the Europeans, hmm, ok, maybe that's why Greece and Persia were fighting over that narrow passageway in the story of the 300??? It all comes down to money, right? The Chinese have it, and the west wants it....Those giant skyscrapers Tom Cruise is jumping around, and about, and over, in the movie Mission Impossible 3, are not computer generated. Those are genuine. And they are NUMEROUS. Huge, beautiful, just part, the Eastern part, of ShangHai. Better get the shovel in the wagon Europe, if you don't wish to be left behind, China has awakened and is rolling forward, gathering steam....I think USA's imperial days are approaching the end. China, not USA, will soon become the world's dominant military power...Say, I wonder why the Persian army didn't just steal the Chinese merchants' goods...hmm, do you suppose the Chinese soldiers guarding the loot, may have had some small role to play, in preventing local troops, in addition to all the bandits, from attacking the caravan. I bet those Chinese soldiers had some harrowing stories of their own to relate, and they had no rocks, or caves to hide behind, or in, like the 300 Spartans... Smile

Pride and glory, but mostly pride.

What the hell has this got to do with movies, even less so 300?

Wouldn't it have been easier to point out the Rhino and laugh? Seriously, i could find some more obvious things in that movie to criticize.

I've seen it a couple of years ago, some realistic ultra violence scenes are still fresh in my memory.
Well i didn't like it so much, even though it's a nice action movie.
