Algeria: Movie a Waste

Algerian blogger Nouri says the movie 300 was a fantastic waste of $10! “The film is comprised mostly of exaggerated muscles, computer generated imagery, grotesque or unnecessary sex scenes, and foolishly triumphant dialogue. The film is aesthetically interesting, more for its ahistorical manner than for its beauty. Apparently, Spartans wore no breast plates and rushed into battle in no more than underwear..” he writes.

  • 300 is getting more good press than it deserves. I just did a review of 300 over at Highbrid Nation if you care to read it. In the end it was just another movie that did not live up to the hype to me. Can we say “poor man’s Gladiator”? Most people will likely disagree with me though, lol
