    300

    I just watched the movie 300 based on the book by Frank Miller friday, and I have to say that this move has some of the greatest fighting scenes (although comperter animated). The downer is that the fight scenes are REALLY gory (some people, like myself, may not mind this), and it does seem to be a little bit on the short side when it comes to storylines and well developed characters. The story, of course, mostly revolves around King Leonidas and his 299 Spartans in their fight to hold back Xerxes, all while back in Sparta his wife tries desperately to have the Senate there to send the rest of the Spartan army to aid him. This one has to go up on my favorite movies list, and would encouage anyone to watch it.
    A little tidbit I found was that almost 100 years later Alexander the Great went to war with Persia too, and the ruler at his time was Darius III, a realitive of Xerxes. I thought this was pretty cool because durring this time the Spartans were on the Persian's side and not Alexander's. I need to look further into it but did Xerxes win the war against Sparta or did they just become allies when Alexander began his rule? I would also like other's input on what they thought of the movie 300.

    Are the Darius and Xerxes in question the same ones named in the Bible?

    Well, the greeks/spartans eventually beat the persians back after thermopylaes. Link: Battle of Thermopylae - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    As for the movie, I was planning on seeing it next weekend, and don't worry I wasn't expecting much when it comes to character development or storyline. Blood and great battles are enough for me, lol.
    Attitude of AO MODS, according to beast
    Because they have obtained that level they are arrogant. You have to kep in mind when you talk about these guys they are kind of dorks who probably didn't excel at much and this is their only outlet to flex their muscles. Their egos would suffer no less so the the forum suffers some more. Watch one way or another they will probably repond to this post with a threat. But there are better forums out there.

    The Spartans had their warriors . . . the Athenians had their democracy . . . the Greeks have been so influential.

    Yes they would discard any week or deformed babies, and then at the age of seven put the kids into regimens for war. I must say the whole growing up to be such efficiant warrior thing really gets me excited.

    Re: 300

    Potential spoilers, maybe...







    I thought movie was very good, and I'll agree, the scenes were more intense than I had originally anticipated, but I don't think the mature audience it was made for will mind too much. However, I wouldn't say it is the best movie of this kind, I'd have to say to this day my favorite greek/roman based war movie has been Gladiator. Compared to that film, 300 almost sucked, and some of the persian's disgusting soldiers and those mystics looked kinda like the orcs from LOTR. The "immortals" were pretty cool, I liked their armored masks, the only thing that irked me about the Spartans was the fact that none of them wore body armor. What? Last time I checked, those guys wore protection for all those 6 pack sons of bitches. That was one thing that kinda amused me, all their body physique looked the same and sometimes quite animated.

    Far from perfect, but definately worth seeing in theatres.
