Some rules for the thread:

1. USE SPOILERS / REAL SPOILERS. DO NOT ABUSE THEM.

1A. THE DEFINITION OF A SPOILER IS "ANYTHING THAT GIVES AWAY THE PLOT, REVEALS ANYTHING ABOUT A SCENE, OR RUINS THE END OF THE MOVIE." THIS COVERS BOTH THE MOVIE IN ITS FINAL FORM AS WELL AS IMAGES OR DESCRIPTIONS OF SCENES FROM THE ORIGINAL GRAPHIC NOVEL.

2. THIS MOVIE IS ALL THAT IS MAN. YOU WILL GO SEE IT.

3. THIS IS SPARTA.

Democracy is two wolves and a lamb voting on what to have for dinner.

Liberty is a well-armed lamb contesting the outcome.

    I have to wait until the Saturday after the opening for my friend to return from NYC and see this with me. We have discussed possibly making out after the movie due to how much testosterone and bare, sweaty chests are going to be on screen. She is a smokin-hot comic book nerd and I'm recently single. Wish me luck :^: :^:

    I want to see this movie so bad. I know what's gonna happen, but I did with lots of historical movies, and it doesn't make them any less enjoyable.

    Plus, this movie has what can only be described as the most bad-ass saying in the history of the world:

    "Our arrows will blot out the sun!"
    "Then we shall fight in the shade."

    I mean, honestly... Is that not bad-ass, or what? The guy is telling him that they will send so many fucking arrows into the night that they will literally cover the sky before raining down in a torrent of death and devastation, and the guy doesn't even blink. Fuck yeah!

    Also:

    "Spartans, tonight we dine in hell!"

    That's pretty awesome, too.

    I saw the first trailer, and afterwards I just sat there for a few second, thinking "I HAVE to see this... Absolutely a must!" then I re watched the trailer.

    If I ever need a quick buzz, I watch one of the trailers. Works every time.

    But see, Jean Reno could still kick Sparta's ass. They'd be up on the Eifel tower and the spartan dude would be like "I don't like baguettes!" and Reno would kick him off and yell "THIS. IS. FRANCE. OUI."

    because Jean Reno is badass, see.

    I hope you have a brother(s), because otherwise, that's the stupidest thing for her to say, since you'd be her only son.

    Also, if getting your mom a book makes you "the best son ever" I can only imagine what she'd do if you got rich and bought her a Porsche. Probably incestuous activities.

    No, they shouldn't have. Look at what Hollywood as done to other ancient epic battles worthy of excellent storytelling.

    Namely, that piece of excrement named "Troy".

    A "dramatic" portrayal of Thermopylae would have come out weak and filled in with over hyped actors. I thank god they did the frank miller verson.
