    300

    So is anybody else excited about this movie. It better not be Cheesy, seems to have great epic movie potential. I love these period piece war movies.

    Plot:

    In the Battle of Thermopylae of 480 BC an alliance of Greek city-states fought the invading Persian army in the mountain pass of Thermopylae. Vastly outnumbered, the Greeks held back the enemy in one of the most famous last stands of history. Persian King Xerxes lead a Army of well over 1 000 000 (Persian king Xerxes before war has about 1 700 000 army) men to Greece and was confronted by 300 Spartans, 700 Thespians and other Slave soldiers. Xerxes waited for 10 days for King Leonidas to surrender or withdraw left with no options he moved. The battle lasted for about 3 days and after which all 300 Spartans were killed. The Spartan defeat was not the one expected as a local shepherd named Ephialtes defected to the Persians and informed Xerxes of a separate path through Thermopylae, which the Persians could use to outflank the Greeks

    Well I was excited about this movie, I loved learning about the Persian wars in High School Ancient History, but then I read this at imdb

    The movie never claims to be historically correct. It is based somewhat loosely on Frank Miller's 1998 comic book mini-series. Changes from history were made by Miller and Snyder so as to appeal to a wider audience and create a more exciting and visually stunning action movie, rather than a typical historical epic.
    It annoys me when they change history just for hollywood, but I can see where they are coming from though. I'll probably see this when it comes out on DVD.

    Ugh, this movie is going to be soooooo bad. The trailer is enough to turn me away from it. The movie is really playing to the "comic book movie" aspect of how cheesy and over the top the characters are going to be played.

    But don't mind me.

    Yeah, but it would be boring then. I guess they want to appeal to the teen crowd. As long as they don't make to radical changes to the history it will be cool. I'm not that picky, i even liked troy.

    Don't you think that's pretty logical when it's based on a freaking comic book?
    This film isn't about historical accuracy but kick ass-ness.

    Have you seen the trailer?

    There is the phrase, truth is stranger than fiction, which also lends itself to the converse being true: fiction must be believable.

    We watch Resident Evil, or X-men because while they present elements of the fantastic, there is believable human emotion and dialogue moving the narrative. 300 lacks this.

    Edit: Upon rewatching the trailer I only stand behind my statements even more.

    Whoever plays that lead role is going to SINGLE-HANDEDLY ruin the movie with nothing but his voice.
