Frank Miller's 300


Summing it up.

Before you gouge your eyes out because of that goddamnawful image, let me just tell you I loved the film. I was expecting a lot of Greco-Roman Wrestling and all that shit, and since they’re Greeks I was also expecting a lot of man love (turns out the Achaens were the man lovers). Thank God my expectations weren’t fulfilled.

I’m in a happy mood right now mainly because 300 is one load of happy. I mean, it’s one load of happy if you dig massacres, squirting blood, decapitations, nude dancing nubile young women getting high and being licked by diseased old men, Persians being pwned by women (“Only Spartan women give birth to real men.” – gold), and some ambiguously gay king (no, not Leonidas. Guess who).

But I loved every single moment of the film. I just have one complaint: I was in all geek mode, just taking in every single scene, and being awed by the color treatment and fantastic CGI work, but suddenly these girls behind me would make fun of the dialogue and stuff. They’re not Spartan women, so I told them off. They quiet down.

Ten minutes later, they giggle like the feeble non-Spartan women they are. I bring out my manly Spartan ways and shut them up. Forever.

Anyway, inspite of them giggling and noise, 300 is still one awesome film. In fact, it was so awesome, I spent the rest of my day scouring all nearby bookstores so I could buy the graphic novel. Alas, no such luck. Sold out everywhere.


Anyway, this is my favorite scene:

No, I mean this:

Also, I’m so happy for spikerdave for landing a role in 300:

So, how did you guys find 300?

  1. cool space!

    hahaha I loved the images! My favorite scene was when they drove the Persians off the cliff as well! 😀

    wahahaha CG background, yeah it was awesome! 🙂

  4. I, on the other hand, felt like punching everyone on the throat when I stepped out of the theater.

  5. Frank Miller really capitalized on cinematics. I was like WHOASHITFUCKTHISASTIGPAREGRABE~ after watching the film. 😆

  6. OK, I meant oracle "scene," not seen. Ehehehe

  7. The oracle seen is TEH AWESOME!!!

    And I enjoyed every single moment of the film the best way I could: on a la-z-boy with buckets of popcorn and tumblers of soda. For a film like that, Gateway Cineplex 10 is the ideal place to watch it. No non-Spartan women giggling behind you, or at least they're too far to be heard.

  8. I totally dug this flick… and OMG, those pictures of yours had me laughing! 😀

    Incidentally, I actually saw Gerard Butler just a few feet from last year at the 2006 Toronto International Film Festival where he was promoting the premiere of his flick at the time – Beowulf and Grendel. That movie, on the other hand, was uneven, slow-paced and had some snoozer moments.

    I've been hot for Butler ever since, hehe. 😀

  9. i was gonna watch 300 but the movie ticket cost half of the title.. damnit. FHM na lang binili ko… drooling…

  10. Jam

    I've heard some good reviews about the film. I have yet to see it.

  11. 300? Stylized gorefest – although it does look very homoerotic.

    That was my initial reaction. I've been proven wrong, dammit. Kill me?

  12. whoa. I don't recall them looking exactly like that. haha

  13. the movie was great, i think i'm going to watch it again this weekend.

    and as critics say, Troy is a gay-gladiator movie when 300 is released, and the hell it is true.

  14. the last time I went to the movies was when V for Vendetta was on showing.

  15. I'm watching it on Tuesday. But damn, Ade, I'm gonna be giggling every time Spikerdave (or his ilk) show up on screen.

    Hahahha

  16. I FOUND 300 SA MEGAMOL!

  17. alangya paktay lahat 😀 dapat yung bading na king-god eh napuruhan din para mas masaya ang ending.

  18. liz

    xerxes is beautiful. i drooled at his every scene. love the eyebrows yo!

  19. who dares to be the 301st? lol

  20. The Show-Ender

    No wonder Ephialtes looks familiar!! LOLz!

  21. Spartan Government Warning: Kneeling is dangerous to your health.

    So is picking the soap up with 300 man-loving Greek beefcakes with spears surrounding you.

  22. can't wait! can't wait to watch the film!

  23. No plan of watching it. But, but I love and enjoyed your artilce. At least natanggal ang pagod ko.

  24. I'm receiving good reviews about the film. Like:

    "Wow, ang ganda talaga niya!"

    "Ay kadiri!"

    "Super, panoorin mo. Ang galing talaga ng storya."

    "Ganda ng effects. Grabe."

    "Shocks, musta naman ang patayan? At kabadingan. hahah. Chos!"

    I thought asking them what they think about the movie would waste my time.

  25. Damn, I'm seeing too many naked men today. First, I saw Harry Potter naked. Now, I'm seeing someone, unattractive, naked.

    PS: The spartan man with the red cape that's taking to his wife and child – his tits are bigger than mine. Should I die from envy?

  26. I want to put a comment about the film.. after I watch it. LOL

  27. I may be still on a high, but it's my favorite film of all time.

  28. I haven't seen the movie yet, but I'm sure it's gonna be a "one load of happy" since I do dig massacres and bloody scenes. *drools*

    You should have shown those non-Spartan women your manly sword. That would have shut them up for sure. :p

  29. Haven't seen 300 yet. Maybe tomorrow, but is it that bloody and sexy?

    Guess I have to find out my self.
