      "part of a comprehensive U.S. psychological war aimed at Iranian culture"

      That's freakin' funny right there. Maybe Hollywood will pull this politically incorrect abomination from the theaters immediately.

            Some of you guys need to lighten up a bit.

            The movie kicked @$$!

            So the only historical accuracy of the movie is the fact that there were 300 Spartans at Thermopoli, who goes to the movies for a history lesson? Watch the history channel or read a book! I am very familiar with history and the Spartans, I always thought they were that baddest of the bad in Ancient history and have read up on them every chance I get. I didnt go to 300 to learn anything.
            I go to the movies to be entertained. To get out of my hell life for if only a few hours. For a three hour break from reality.
            I wanted to see the movie
            I was nothing short of pleased with it
            and I am going to go watch it again lol.

            I dont know, I guess I just go to the movies for different reasons than a lot of you all.

            I gave it 2 thumbs way up!

              Hehe!
              You mean you didn't know that you can earn a master's degree by going to the movies!?!




              After all, it is only a movie (and one based on a comic book at that).

                  The press is in a hair-pulling contest over this movie too.

                  You're not alone...
                  so don't feel like you're getting smacked on.

                  I still think the best part of this whole flap is how upset the Iranians are over this... on the heels of their giant "holocaust didn't happen" conference. Let's see, Hitler didn't do a good enough job = no one should be offended! vs. Mistreat the poor Persians on film = "insult to the Persian Civilization!"

                    I didn't know the movie was based on a comic book, or I would have never went to see it! The X-men movies are the only movies based on comic books I have ever liked!

                      You didnt like the Spiderman flicks?
                      I thought they were allright.

                      What about the new Transformers movie, that looks like it will be pretty good.

                        Dang that brought back memories!


                        I don't think I'll be seeing the Transformers movie

                            The problem with Ghost Rider was poor writing. It felt rushed, like they were trying to end it before it even started. The plot was sloppy, the fight scenes almost non-existent, and some of the dialog was so bad I winced. If it wasn't so much fun to look at, I would've been mad.

                            I don't think Transformers will be as bad, seeing that Michael Bay (Armageddon, The Island) is directing and Steven Spielberg is producing. It looks like they're taking some serious creative liberties in deviating from the original material, but it should still be cool.

                            Regardless, it'll be a while before anyone comes up with anything close to 300.

                              I saw the first one a few months ago and didn't really care for it. Haven't seen the 2nd one, and really have no desire to see the new one.

                              I did like the Punisher, I forgot about that one. That movie is more realistic, it could happen.

                                Well, it could always be worse...
                                it could be like Kevin Costner's "Robinhood" movie, with the really bad accents (I didn't know Robinhood was from Oklahoma!).
