It seems that now more than ever today people has drawn a fascination over the legendary Spartans, and to show their admiration they run around yelling this is Sparta and kicking people down some stairs(this happened at my school a while ago). although kick as by nature ninjas and pushing elephants were probably not in the original battle and Leonidas was not the last to die, but he dies and the remaining 300 are there fighting over his corpse. Although the movie is horribly incorrect and does not portray the real 300 which was an elite group of homosexuals, it is by its nature "kickass" and "plenty of awesome". Although it is sublime in action I could not help to think that trying to imitate scenes from the play to be a tad bit ridiculous, the only benefits to this is that people now know you are an indecisive hick who very nature is arbitrarily ruled by your short attention span.
Also this is awesome

It comes from the fact that most of the people who have seen it are fanboys over the comic book. Those who read the comic book have quite obviously, never been laid. Those who never been laid have yet to be whipped by women thus allows them to portray their own innocence, even if I want to beat the crap out of them.

god i hate that movie. it totally discredits the whole event, possibly the most important event in western history. it makes it look like mythology, with trolls and ogres and whatnot. every part of it was also so unrealistic. it just blew my mind that people could love a film like that.

i'm a big fan of history, so this movie was like a knife in my heart. not only giving a terrible inaccurate depiction, but making it seem as though it didn't happen at all. i hope people don't start to belive that it was just a movie, and that there never was a battle of thermopylae in the first place.

watch the movie 300 spartans, its far more accurate, if a little dated

It made for a great action movie. Hack and slash in slowmo.

300 was an entertaining movie... as i was watching it, i really didn't give a crap if it was historically accurate, i wanted to watch a good fight.
and it entertained me.
that's the WHOLE POINT OF MAKING MOVIES!!!

I watched this movie. It entertained and nothing more. I had NO desire to yell anything or react in anyway to stimuli from this movie simply to the fact IT WAS A MOVIE and life is NOT a movie script. This reaction of everyone yelling THIS IS SPARTA, is due to persons on websites "yelling" this in comments made; or via silly little videos someone with far too much spare time made to post on places like You Tube. If persons at your school acted this way, they seriously need some mental help.

Oh I blame you for them not being laid!!! THEY NEED SOME LOVE TOO DUSTER!!!!!

ok my stupid jokes aside ;P

300 was an awesome movie. I dont go to a movie theater to learn anything I go for shear entertainment and it was really action packed. I ended up watchin it twice in theaters because I enjoyed it so much and I have never watched a movie in a theater more than once.
