What's funny is that'd just piss Iran off even more. They've been on this kick to get the Arabian Sea named the Persian Sea again because they consider calling it arabian robs them of their heritage or some such shit.

I just saw the movie with my wife tonight.

She says it is utter fluff, there is almost no meaningful dialog and that it was predictable and really really boring. The only thing she seemed to like was the creative ending credit sequence.

Translation: This movie is for guys.

I thought the movie rocked! "Graaaaah!" is enough dialog for me. A person shouldn't have a Naruto length conversation while they are fighting. The Spartans were a culture of jocks. They trained their entire lives for war. All they did was train, workout, and tell stories about battles. They were not known for moving speeches, unless they were telling people to move. They were known however for being strong, fast and very very capable warriors. Spartans practically invented the concept of gym training.

I liked the slow motion effects, I think it helped to highten the battle choreography. Unlike many movies that try to hide the battle choreography by using shakey, cam this movie let the chop and stab have it's proper place.

The only thing I didn't like about the movie was the crappy Lisa Girard music they kept sticking in there. Metal, hard and fast suits this movie. Wait, hunchback boy sucked too.

In reality they trained their entire lives to crush slave revolts. Lokonia had one of the highest concentrations of slaves in the ancient world. I am not sure as to the exact figure off the top of my head, but it was over 100 to one. Spartan society was based around slave control, hence their concentration on military prowess.

I only know this because I have a degree in Classical and Near Eastern Archeology (Along with two other useless degrees). XD

I saw it, and it may have redefined "epic". Hell, it may have redefined the action/drama movie genre in general for me.

Simply amazing.

Just watched it - goddamn was that made of awesome.

I know someone commented earlier on the blood, but I thought it made for a neat stylistic choice. Loved the one-liners, too.

I just saw it, wicked movie, funny too, best part: "there's no reason we can't be civlilized about this!" while killing the wounded.I tink everybody in the theatre laughed.
But that CG wolf at the beginning was TERRIBLE! who came up with that design? seriously, and did anyone else notice that every woman in that movie had rather long nipples? hm?

long nipples? I told you, every single nipple in that movie was as hard as it could be.

I was looking in the credits for "Nipple icer". There HAD to be SOMEBODY doing it.

I think they were harder than they could possibly be. Like they all went and got nipple enhancements or something. I seriously think those scenes were shot in a sound freezer rather than a sound stage. :?
