Finally i get some time to blog..

There's this film i feel i should blog about..300. I hope many of you know Spartans? I knew about Spartans at the of 10, i was really fond of reading my encyclopedia (Childcraft). At first i found them as a nation of brutes, but later on i came to appreciate a their way of life, although it is a very elitist one. And on friday i got to watch this film 300 (which i watched 5 more times), which is about the great Battle of Thermopylae, where 300 Spartans fought whole armies of persians. Eventually they got ass-kicked, but this was something more admirable. The fight for freedom.

Although this story is a bit fantasied, this battle actually took place. And most of the characters mentioned in this film really existed.

I particularly like the special effects in the film..specially the sequence where King Leonidas goes ahead and starts ass-kicking. Spartans are really good warriors,and i think this film is a good tribute to the 300 brave one who stood against the Persians.

There are some quotes that i really appreciated from the movie and here the are..

First of all, the battle cry of the Spartans..HAWOOO

then this one when the Persian messenger first comes to Sparta with the message from Xerxes

King Leonidas: You bring the crowns and heads of former kings to my city! You mock my queen! You threaten my people with slavery and death!
Messenger: This is blasphemy! This is madness!
King Leonidas: Madness? THIS IS SPARTA!

King Leonidas: Spartans! Ready your breakfast and eat hearty... For tonight, we dine in hell!

Dilios: Go tell the Spartans, passerby, That here, by Spartan law, we lie

Xerxes: I will erase Sparta from the histories......The world will never even know you existed at all.
King Leonidas: The world will know that free men stood against a tyrant, that few stood against many

and here's a trailer

    hawooo! i've always had a great fascination for greek mythology and legends, 300 was a nice film, a perfect mix of history and hollywood in action, personally i placed the film along the same line as alexander, troy, kingdom of heaven, and i truly think that 300 beats them all flat... chapeaux au realisateurs, one the best film i saw!
