300




Went along to see 300 this afternoon, and I have to say it's Fucking Fantastic. Spartans are really hard.

Although I did find the hot dog I had a tad disapointing, even though they brought it to my seat.

There you go, another ground-breaking uber-review at Octopus 99.

I saw 300, very bloody, yeah! bloody awful heh heh! Always wanted to use that joke but actually I liked it. I like all that "Tonight we shall dine in hell" stuff.

Yeah, 'Good Deaths' and all that.
Some of the dialogue was a bit lame, but who cares when the fights are that good?

Always loved the myth of the Spartans ... officially 'The Hardest Geezers Ever'.
G'won, kick some Persian arse.

Where's the nearest cinema to you now, then? Is it Barnstable?

Dominic Zero said...

Yeah, it's not too bad. Though V disapointed with the hotdog.

PS I might ring you up in a minute...

Quite apt actually. A bunch of Yanks and Limeys kicking Persian arse.

Do you think that's why they nabbed our sailors?

I really enjoyed 300. Goes well with a spliff. Gay as hell, and I giggled quite a lot. Looked beautiful, though. The press gave it a really hard time, but I don't think they get Miller's sense of humour.

The trouble is he lifted all the dialogue straight from the book, and what works on the page doesn't always work on the screen. But I don't think there's anything wrong with a film being just good to look at. Especially if you're stoned.

You're right about the dialogue, some of it was too cheesy.
Cool, I want to see it stoned now. I lost my drugs in the move, though.
