I watched the movie "300" today, and man, what a mess.

Completely inaccurate.

Overused Computer Grafics.

Riduculous sex scenes.

Multiple nudity scenes.

A DINOSAUR! Give me a break!

The computer grafics alone stunned me. Idiotic looking portable thrones. Greeks instead of having Armour had six pack abs which made Arnold Schwarzenegger look like a weakling, and wearing nothing but underwear and then a beautiful crimson cape. A Persian who can take a sword through the eye, and live. And then the guy who gives away the hidden pass. They couldn't make him look more non-human even if they tried. He's 9/10s animal, and 1/10s part human.

Only one good part to the movie was when Leonidas said, "Spartans, What is your profession?"
"AHO AHO AHO AHO" That was great!

But how can people say this is such a great movie when it stinks? I wasted two and a half hours of my life watching pure stupidity, and moronicness.

Any personal thoughts on the movie you'd like to share.?

You (Dantares) also made a good impression with your campaigns. So many hours, wrestling with idea's. Playtested tons and tons of other work of other people.

It's all a story that's being narrated by a general to his army to boost confidence before a battle
He isn't the general, but basically yes, it is a story told from one person's viewpoint and that can arguably account for all the inaccuracies and exaggerations in the movie.

And I forgot to mention that you really shouldn't try to tell us the sex scenes are ridiculous, because it's painfully obvious you spent hours masturbating furiously to that oracle chick's f*cked up dance routine. Or maybe not, because you *do* seem like the kind of religious idiot whose parents ducttaped your equipment together so you wouldn't be tempted to whack it every so often.
hey, don't knock masturbation. What do you do during the non-girlfriend periods?

If said person *did* wank during that scene, the ugly wart-man licking the woman at the end would have probably put him off rather badly.

Yes, it could be considered a rino, but to me it looked more like a, forgive me if I say the wrong word, Triceratop.

Yes the pit of death was funny. Leonidas: "Let us have a little chat by the pit of death."

Interesting views folks. I'm not going to discuss them all, but I read them all.

Jatayu: Umm...I always considered those areas of the body an area that...ummm...should be covered...I believe any six year old would know about the word "privates", and what that form of the word stood for. However, I take it you weren't brought up that way.

Colo: Out of pure curiosity, what's your cover? Are you bribing this place into letting you stay and talk like that? I mean, if I said something like that, I'd be banned in a heart beat. You get away with saying puke like that quite easily. What are you paying these folks as a bribe so you can stay here and talk like that? $2000? $5000?

Or do you have them in debt to you so that they can't kick you or you would sue or something to that effect.

To put it simply, what's your asset to this place? I know you've been tempoarily banned, but you never seem to get permanently banned.

I don't understand how people can entirely miss the point of the movie. It's all a story that's being narrated by a general to his army to boost confidence before a battle. Think. If you were a general doing just this would you be emphasizing on historical accuracy or how damn manly the 300 men were and how scary the Persians' armies are?
A very good point. Any dramatization is obviously excused with this.

Hey, I don't like his style either but he doesn't deserve a permanent ban for throwing insults at you, even if they aren't very 'touché' or creative all the time. (I obviously support insults that are 'touché' all the time?) It's not like he's picking on you constantly.
I don't understand how people can entirely miss the point of the movie.
No, I didn't miss it, it's just, I saw Braveheart and it was
  • historically SOMEWHAT accurate
  • a story with a leader boosting his soldiers before a fight
  • a better movie
    While I understand that it's just entertainment, I am more entertained by other stuff? Like documentaries! (Seriously. :-[ <--this seriously)

    The problem is they're not really his. He goes around stealing insults from Maddox and other web sites.

    BAWWWW COLO'S INSULTS ARE UNORIGINAL OMG OMG WHAT A FAGGOT LOLOL IN OTHER WORDS WE'RE A BUNCH OF F*CKING NARCISSISTS WITH A PERMANENT STICK UP OUR ASSES. F*CK YEAH.

    Oooo Colo loses. He's the first to completely disregard my warning:
    I'm going to start taking serious action against anybody who continues to break the Code of Conduct by jumping on the flame bandwagon in threads like these, including Dantares. This means I will be *very harsh* in how I moderate situations like this in the future. *Anybody* who goes out of their way to cause trouble will be dealt with accordingly. Please take that into consideration the next time you see Dantares post; if his post bothers you, e-mail me with a link and I will deal with it. Otherwise, ignore it. Same goes for you, Dantares; if somebody bothers you, e-mail me.
    Warning thread. I'm not sure how Colo forgot, but he's done posting here for a very long time.
    There is absolutely no point in replying to this topic because all the answers and retorts and confused replies have been said.
    Oh, don't be such a wussy. _
    That's considered baiting. Cut it out, sharkk. You were right the first time; IGNORE THE THREAD. You add nothing by further corrupting a thread.
    Man, Colo's insults are legendary.
    Tired, overused, annoying; and the word Napoleon-complex comes to mind when I see the constant "witty insults" Colo posts. The fact that you encourage him baffles me to my very core.

    I do appreciate those who were civil and actually discussed the movie and it's inaccuracies without bringing bad blood to the forefront like others. Unfortunately, I must close this thread because of those who did.

    An honest thanks for keeping it civil Dantares; you didn't let Colo get to you and I appreciate that.

    Closed.
