Μολών λαβέ, Y'all!

Oh baby baby! All The 300 needs to become a potential lifetime classic is Bruce Willis and a car chase!

See the trailer here (QuickTime).

Μολών λαβέ!

If only I could go back in time with something belt fed and a few buddies from Knob Creek.

In keeping with the Bruce Willis theme, shouldn't the title be a sanitized version of:

Molon Labe, M.....F.....!

The only thing I see to not like about this film is the costuming.

They didn't put the Spartans in standard armor. Should be helmet, cuirass (breast-plate) in bronze or boiled leather, vambraces (arm protection), skirt (bronze slats or leather), grieves (shin protectors) and hoplon (shield of wood and leather), spear and sword.

The movie doesn't give them much beyond loin cloths, swords and shields. Though it is probably more cinematic that way. Why they need to embellish one of the greatest battles in western history is beyond me.

Uuuuh, because no scriptwriter ever saw something he/she couldn't "improve?"

Never underestimate the sales appeal of wall-to-wall six-pack abs.

McFly 1 & 2,

The movie is based on Frank Miller's graphic novel. All the visuals from that that.

Molon Labe

Great lines:

"Instead ask what a free man would do"

"Madness? THIS IS SPARTA!" (replace Sparta with America and you might have a good rallying cry for current times.

Hopefully this isn't full of the usual PC "let's change history" crap.

PS: I want abs like the guy chucking the spear has. What catalog do I order them from?

PPS: Is Gerard Butler the same actor who played the Phantom of the Opera in the movie version?

Patrick Sweeney said...

Yes he is. (IMDB.com is your friend) If you want abs like those,you order them the same way he did: an hour a day, every day, for the next six months (if you start out OK) to two years (if you start out fat.)

Same way you get good at shooting, fencing, cards or anything else.
