300: #ThisIsSparta


From Jackson Barnett18:

Is 300 the best film ever? It is. Come watch well oiled men, brisk battle sequences, and a completely accurate HISTORICAL re-telling off the BATTLE OF THERMOPOLYAE in which 300 Spartans (and 1500 Thebans [not shown]) desperately and proudly lose a minor battle in the First Persian War.

300: A True Story goes down in history as a must watch film, like Citizen Kane, Die Hard 2: Die Harder, 102 Dalmations: Die Harder, and Terminator 3: Die Harder. Described by the New York Times as “Yup, this happened,” and as “This in fact was a film, printed on physical medium,” 300 was shown in theaters all over America.


The question really comes down to this: what else are you doing on Thursday night before fall break?
