Movie Review: 300

300 – Come and Get Them

If you didn’t watch this movie, you are officially stupid. And don’t give me the whole “this is the West brainwashing that they will triumph over the current Iranian affairs” crap. It is a true story (without maybe the giant elephants and rhinos) and if you don’t believe me you can read about the history here.

I just wonder really how those men got those bodies. I watched the documentary on how they were trained… OMG! I would die if I were to be trained in the same way. LoL.

    true, true, it is based on the comic which, on its turn, is based on historical information (and so nicely presented by Herodotus, one of the most graceful Greek historians of classical times, who did field research for the whole Persian Wars episodes- he wrote just 30 years after the events). Neverteheless, I notice that greek history recently is a favorite metaphor for the West-East confrontations in Hollywood industry: Troy (here East is not evil), Alexander (here it is), 300 (masculinity and gymnastics:))

    Omernos – well dude when you see the movie you will know what I am talking about :P Plus everyone who saw any trailer would know how great the movie is in other aspects :P You just want to prove I am gay so you can have me for yourself.

    Hamza – the thing is Hamza you can’t NOT look at the bodies, because for two hours all you see is those men wearing nothing but sandals and leather underwear.

    LORD.M.M – that was an amaaaaaaaazing line! Totally loved it

    Nael – I’m gonna go read it now.. Of course there will be fiction, but good fiction!

    Vas – yeah Hollywooders tend to make everything anti-East and pro-West.

    Sene – I am not allowed to talk to you then :P

    A section from a commentray about what they mean that this is an orientalist and racist film:

    Some western film critics have echoed Iranian objections. Dimitris Danikas notes that 300 depicts Persians as “bloodthirsty, underdeveloped zombies” and feeds “racist instincts in Europe and America.”

    On the other hand film critic Dale McFeatters calls the Iranians “picky, picky,” alleging (quite falsely), “Well, your leader did threaten to wipe Israel off the map.” And Stanford history professor Victor Davis Hanson, reportedly admired by Cheney and his (professional historian) wife, posts his opinion on the right-wing “RealClearPolitics” website: “We rightly consider the ancient Greeks the founders of our present western civilisation ­ and, as millions of movie-goers seem to sense, far more like us than the [Iranian] enemy who ultimately failed to conquer them.”

    Anonymous – The problem with people is that they do not differentiate Iran from Persia. The war happened and it is over, and the movie has nothing to do with the current affairs even if it was purposely made to be so.

    Otherwise, you can have another analogies – in the light that those critics are looking at the past events and our ancestors to define current affairs, then Damascus is the heart of the Ummayyad empire, rich in culture, education, philosophy and peace. It also means that the Eurpoeans are nothing but barbarians – I mean hey, who killed the Celts? Remember the Dark Ages? Who brought about the Enlightenment except the Muslim visitors?

    Going on, the Americans are just immigrants who chose to discard their original country and culture, killed off the native residents of the continent and settled in.

    I guess if people are to judge by the past, then we would see that the Middle East is much less barbaric that Europe and America combines.

    It is just a movie, and so are all other movies. They are points of view, and that is it, and if people take everything in the world as a threat or as an accusation or pointer to something else, you’d be completely paranoid, which is definitely what the West is becoming.
