    I saw 300 some days ago and it wasn't really that impressive.
    Sure the fights were cool but that's about it.
    The cgi was easy to see.

    That's awesome! You don't know how long I've been wanting to see what 24 was all about. Thanks! :grin:

    I used to watch SG-1 with my mother a few years back. Great show. :laugh:

    Historically inaccurate? The movie is based on the comic book by frank miller and not the event itself. As for the poor character development, I've seen this arguement used by a couple of critics,albeit :
    a) the "time span" of the movie is only a few days long.
    b)we are talking about a military unit going on a campaign, what did they expect,see the hoplites socialize/flirt/exhibit their emotional world? The chars were nicely developed.
    The fight scenes weren't realistic indeed. But so it was in the matrix case, since the point in those movies was to take the action film genre a step forward. Both movies were succesful in this. Once again ,this wasn't a documentary on ancient warfare,just an action movie based on a comic book which was loosely based on an 1960's movie which was based on the historical facts...Surprisingly ,the basic guidelines weren't inaccurate at all,it is just the whole "LOTR" atmosphere that some people disliked. Heh, the movie even has a smeagol (ephialtes).

    I liked the movie a lot. What I didn't like was the hollywood cliche chit chat ("We are Free men fighting for justice"/daddy warrior goes ballistic when his son is killed etc). And of course the revival of a feud dead for about fifteen centuries (Greece v Persia) is rather silly,although I had seen that coming.

    Even with the way some people criticize that movie, I still want to see it. It may be based off a comic book or whatever, but it seems interesting enough to watch it at least once. :grin: Hmm, I wonder when it will be included on that link. :scratch:

    With regards to 300, the adverts on TV always play Nine Inch Nails music, is there NIN music in the film? Or just during the credits? Or even just on the TV adverts?

    I didn't hear any NIN song,just the "Just Like You Imagined" in the trailer. I'm partial to all the "industrial" offshoots of rock music.

    I think it might be just on the commercials.

    That's a shame :hanky:

    NIN is the only industrial band that I like so far. Although [With_Teeth] was extremely disappointing, and I'm almost certain Year Zero will be as well.

    If 300 doesn't come out until the fourth of April, then what movie was that played labeled as '300?' :shocked:


    One other thing I noticed too, just about everyone here calls me by my name, but I only know the names of three of you. Now how fair is that? :hanky:

    It's the other way around with me - I always call you Dii :tongue:

    I'll still call you Dii even if you change your forum name though - it was you that wanted to change it wasn't it? I vaguely remember a discussion about forum names in the Pal forum :scratch:

    Because it comes out that date in Switzerland. That doesn't mean that it wasn't played anywhere else. Anyway I'm not going to watch it over stream or anything like that in bad quality. It's an epic movies so I'm going to watch it in the cinema with a huge screen :grin:

    Not fair at all! I never call anyone by names here, almost. Didn't we have a discussion recently where someone said he thought of us in the same way our avatars looked like? For me, it's the same, but with forum names! Too bad for You, KremBanan! :tongue:

    My thoughts exactly, I liked the movie a lot. Thing is that when going to cinema one should expect a piece of good entertainment rather than a masterpiece in this case:thumbsup:
