They ran him over so he could fight in the shade.

I just saw Wolf of Wall Street and that 300 thingy was the other movie playing at the theater. There was a window in the lobby where you could see in the theater that 301: The Sequel was screening. Both people seemed to be enjoying it.

Is this greenlighted as a sort of subtle way to make fun of the guy running through all the gun threads the other day screaming that the comparison to cars was invalid because they're not dangerous and never used in crime?

Because the story itself isn't particularly interesting.

At the exact same time, in a parallel universe, a man is killed by a Spartan after arguing about the end of Maximum Overdrive.

No, that's not a knife!

It's a farking duck!

Considering that the plot is about as deep as a paper plate, I'd wager the argument centered around Eva Green: Great Boobies or Greatest Boobies?

That's about all I took from the flick.

The whole thing was clogged with historical inaccuracies; although, I am glad that Themistocles finally got some credit for his roll in the battle of thermopylae.

That's not fair. Maximum Overdrive was good. FFS, Gus Fring got taken out by a farking cigarette machine.

Why would someone argue with a truck? How did a truck get in to see the movie in the first place?

The Persians inventing Greek fire 900 years and 1500 miles off schedule was the point where I gave up, personally.  Pretty sure the Lord of the Rings was a more accurate depiction of Greek history.

Sure it was a braindead ridiculous explosion of silliness, but I went in expecting a braindead ridiculous explosion of silliness. And halfway through that braindead ridiculous explosion of silliness, I got to see a metric asston of slo-mo Eva Green boobies in 4K on an IMAX screen. So fark the detractors, because slo-mo Eva Green boobies in 4K on an IMAX screen is great time at the movies in my book.

That's why I like watching all movies, you get to see a lot of actors as they start out. Back in 2003 anyone who saw Eva Green in The Dreamers could have told you she has a great set of boobies. And that's when she was only 23.

He should have chosen more carefully. Trucks have a reputation to uphold.

The office would not name the film but witnesses told KHOU-TV that it was '300: Rise of an Empire,' a Greek-era action film steeped in battle scenes.

It was actually The Lego Movie.

thesharkman: Are there any spoilers in the article?


Well, the truck sure spoiled that one guy...

I assume they were arguing about whether the movie sucked, or whether it REALLY sucked.

You guys do realize it's based on an over-the-top comic book, and not really intended to be historically accurate, right? It's sort of like complaining about the historical inaccuracy of the Captain America movie...

When the first one came out, I made the corollary of a bunch of guys sleeping together, all wearing leather shorts. Coworkers looked at me as if I were defective. Later, many said they thought I was right. NTTAWWT>

Following someone out of a theater to their truck to continue an argument is rarely going to work out in your favor.

EatenTheSun: Following someone out of a theater to their truck to continue an argument is rarely going to work out in your favor.



What if the truck was along the way to his car?  Although, standing behind the truck and continue the argument while the truck starts up and go into gear is Darwin stupid.  Those little white lights on the back isn't so the can see you make your point better, it is a warning.

/I almost back over someone during an argument once.  Sounds extreme, but it wasn't a normal argument, they were trying to rob me by throwing bricks at my truck and had the truck surrounded.  The truck didn't have working backup lights.  They left very quickly after that, and so did I.  I did call the cops myself.

I love Captain America -- it teaches the virtues of being a scrawny weakling, taking "something", and becoming giant & ripped overnight.

// Did I say "steroids"?  Silly me, I meant "Super-Soldier Serum".  Yea, that's it.

That's my local movie theater. I moved out here to get rid of the madness that had overtaken Katy.
There might be people getting run over in the parking lot, but damn the screens are new and the place is almost over staffed.

Just because that movie sucks is no reason to run over some idiot who likes it.

The first unnecessary 300 movie trashed one of the most important events and turning points of Western Civilization. In fact, until TV, American Conservatives and lefties conspired to destroy the teaching of history to American youth, this was one of the best known periods in history.

They took the heroes of Thermopylae and made them into villains. They made the Persian King into a diabolical black African gay giant rapist like something out of a 1930s voodoo movie, while ignoring the role of the Battalion of Lovers in saving Western Civilization (somthing even the Athenians admired and recognized as a big A++ for the gays).

The damage they did to Western Civilization can only be over-looked because the movie is obvious B-movie fodder for the MST3K guys at Cinema Titantic and Riff Trax.com. I hope they do both movies. It's probably the only safe way to watch them. That's what I'm waiting for. I will watch parodies and read cartoons, but I don't want my brain to see the movie without intelligent well-informed company.

Maybe Joel and Mike can re-unite the cast and combine forces on this one for one last MST3K Blast at the Past.

The implication being that these two places are somehow different dining experiences.

Rifftrax already did the original 300 long ago...

/But, I can't understand why people get so worked up about a silly comic book movie, as if it were passing itself off as a historic documentary...
