A classic Spartan war effort which is very thrilling!

The Spartans are a timeless symbol; especially for our chaotic times. If you want peace you must ever be prepared for war.

300 is a decent film. I have fond memories of watching it before I really knew anything about the real history behind it. The quotes from the movie are iconic and the action and plot are incredible. The worst thing about the movie is how ahistorical it is. Of course being completely historical isnt something most people enjoy watching, but I believe that a decent amount of realism is necessary for people to enjoy a movie like this. Other than that, the visuals are beautiful and the main protagonist feels like a perfect match for the antagonist which makes it a very fun movie to watch. 3/5 -@econzones of the Hamilton Public Library's Teen Review Board

(*Favorite movie quote*) - "Spartans never retreat. Spartans never surrender."

So, like, when it comes to Spartans - What came first? The Apple? - or - The Warrior?

As Greek Legend has it - One fine day the mighty gods from above looked down (with kind favor) upon the good men of Spartan.

And it was so proclaimed for all to hear - "Valiant Men of Spartan, because you are such brave and fierce warriors in the line of battle, we, the gods of all that is Greek, are going to honor you for eternity by naming one of our choicest apples after you."

Ha! Just keep that in mind the next time you bite down on a nice, juicy Spartan. And remember - There's a lot of history in that there apple.

No. But, seriously, folks!.... 300 was, by far, one of the most powerful tales of "Scars and Muscles" that I have ever beheld. It was a truly satisfying epic of ferocious, one-on-one battle, like no other.

Yeah. Just take the "Wall of Dead", for instance..... Wow! Talk about awesome visuals, non-stop!

Anyway - When dishing out the heaps, upon heaps, of praise for 300, like, what more could I possibly say about this flick that hasn't already been said so many times before?

Vary good movie technology - visual effect. Entertaining! Caveat: There are a few sex scenes. So, watch with your kids if you let your kids to watch it.

Zack Snyder creates a glorious CGI vision of ancient Greece in this rewrite of the Battle of Thermopylae that is devoid of historical accuracy but heavy on the comic book gore. Through the use of post production wizardry he melds live action with virtual sets to give us a film whose washed out colours and golden lustre recall the graphic novel on which it is based. When Spartan king Leonidas (Gerard Butler, not even trying to mask his Scottish brogue) finds his meagre forces grossly outnumbered by a vast Persian army led by the elaborately effeminate King Xerxes, he and his men defy the odds and hold their own for three days before finally being defeated; a defeat which was later avenged at Plataea. Snyder brings the heat of battle to vivid life with endless fountains of blood, dripping swords and graphic decapitations. He also employs a strong element of the fantastic as grotesque creatures and mythical beasts threaten our heroes from every side only to be defeated in the most outrageous examples of military hyperbole; yet there is a certain grandiose nobility to the proceedings that demands to be taken seriously. This is a testosterone-drenched fantasy epic overflowing with bellicose male posturing and endless vistas of half-naked beefcake; Butler looks especially edible with his full beard and little furry jockstrap. Part adolescent reverie, part macho wet dream, and wholly entertaining.

Messenger: Choose your next words carefully, Leonidas. They may be your last as king.

King Leonidas: [to himself: thinking] "Earth and water"?

[Leonidas unsheathes and points his sword at the Messenger's throat]

Messenger: Madman! You're a madman!

King Leonidas: Earth and water? You'll find plenty of both down there.

Messenger: No man, Persian or Greek, no man threatens a messenger!

King Leonidas: You bring the crowns and heads of conquered kings to my city steps. You insult my queen. You threaten my people with slavery and death! Oh, I've chosen my words carefully, Persian. Perhaps you should have done the same!

Messenger: This is blasphemy! This is madness!

King Leonidas: Madness...?


King Leonidas: This is Sparta!

[Kicks the messenger down the well]

King Leonidas: Then what must a king do to save his world when the very laws he has sworn to protect force him to do nothing?
Queen Gorgo: It is not a question of what a Spartan citizen should do, nor a husband, nor a king. Instead, ask yourself, my dearest love, what should a free man do?

Dec 16, 2015

Queen Gorgo: Spartan!
King Leonidas: Yes, my lady?
Queen Gorgo: Come back with your shield...or on it.
King Leonidas: Yes, my lady.

Queen Gorgo: [having stabbed Theron and while holding sword into his body] This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this. I am not your Queen!
