    That was very off-topic and slightly vulgar for a forum if you ask me....

    LOL I don't think it was that bad. Just a rant, not a post swearing at or ridiculing someone is it?

    So I saw it already and I liked it, reminded me of Sin City the way it was shot so if you like that movie you would probably like 300.

    BTW it has lots of TNA
    and the CGI was Very Good

    According to Showbiz Weekly it's earned $27.7 million on it's opening Friday. More reason to go watch it? I'd like to think so...

    "off-topic" The topic was seeing the movie. I got sick, I couldn't go and plans had been made with family and friends.... I was venting and joking. If you couldn't see that, you need to get out more cfitzarl.

    I thought it was very good. The plot wasnt the most exciting but I didnt go for the plot. :D

    It is based on the well-known legend of the battle of Thermopylae. And the plot in the graphic novel was quite complex and good, so I don't see why it wouldn't be the same in the movie, seeing that Frank Miller is an Executive Producer of the movie which means he probably oversaw the development to the T.
    P.S.->No, I haven't seen the movie yet, since it's releasing here on the 22nd. #%#@$!

    But I will..... basicly the inspector finds out and when he the guy tries too flee he ends up meeting the marksman that killed his brother and he gets shot down just before he can kill him.

    It is quite remarkable

    @takaboku, I have read the graphic novel so I know what to expect. :)
    @Sjbrand99, WTF are you talking about?!

    My review of 300-

    -300 men vs. a whole bunch of transvestites, with gore.

    I actually enjoyed the fighting scene more then i thought, because it was right to the point. (slash, dead). But besides that i found myself thinking...when the hell is this going to be over.

    Hmm... each to his own I suppose. But I loved it. I suppose it would have to do with my fascination with comics et al. ;)

    i saw the movie 2 weeks ago! i liked it, it was all good and everythin, but what i didnt like is its not the full story! they should battle the roman army! its a big story that i expected to see!
    who played Spartan- a real warrior. if u played this incredible game u will know the story!
    however the movie was good, i'd give it 9/10

    What do you mean the whole story? And where do the Romans fit into the Battle of Thermopylae? This movie was not about Sparta, but about that particular incident which led the Greeks to unite against the Persian armies from Asia.

    300 was amazing (saw it in theatres) and no I didn't download this movie.. don't even know why anybody would assume that.. like I said, didn't

    No one is accusing you. You sound guilty though.

    well unfortunately like was once said by some president.. I cannot tell a lie, which was why I was aiming at sounding guilty purposely. ;)

    That link gives no info about that particular part of history methinks. The Battle of Thermopylae was fought before the Rome-Sparta war. I know this because Sparta lost the latter.
