history { War Nerd on '300'

He does a damn good job of summing up '300''s failings from a historical perspective. And its funny to read. Questionable if it is suitable for work.


PS - The Exile was one of my standard reads when they first started out. I thought they closed shop, its good to see they are still around.

I think just about every review I've read has said the same thing about "300": cinematically gorgeous, historically dubious, with a message that is morally bankrupt. Having seen it, these assessments all jive with my feelings about the film. It was visually stunning stylized cryptohomoerotic fascist war porn, and maybe subtle advertising for having a gym membership.
