I  have not seen the movie 300 myself, but I just read [personal profile] trinityofone's review of it, and wow. I mean, when I first heard about this movie I thought it might be a really cool action film (an army of Persians overtake a passionate foe, betrayal is pretty cool when it's on the other side), but then the rumors started going around that it was made by Bush-lovers and was super racist, historically incorrect, and misogynistic, and well now reading the review, I can't imagine wanting to see it. As a woman, as a Persian person, heck as a thinking person I know it'll just piss me off. I told Paul that I would prefer he not pay to see it, he can buy a ticket to another movie and see it if he really wants to.

It's sad, my first thought was to check and see if Mel Gibson was involved with the film. He's a fun actor who's been in some movies i have really liked, but I can't deal with misogyny, drunkenness, racism, antisemitism, and ahistoric drivel that seems to be all he can do these days. Depressing.

Paul says that Shannon will most likely see this movie, I am interested to hear her comments.
