well I don't know if I will, seeing as how you've already ruined the ending!

the ending is not important, it is only important that everyone dies in a spectacular way, for pointless reasons such as honor or love.

There were no massive explosions or mechanical incarnations of the grim reaper (ie, nuclear assault helicopters) in 300.
It's just a bunch of killing. That's only half of the carnage octagon.

I didn't really like 300 it was not really brikwarsy to me. It was so thoughtless, I mean the real legend of the Battle of Thermopoly was different. Hollywood made this into some kind of despicable mindless action movie. now don't get me wrong I love action movies but they need to have some substance behind them. Two action movies with no substance would be: Crank, and 300.

save your time go watch Saving Private Ryan, Chronicles of Riddick, The Bourne Identity, or Snatch.

Man I hope these two statements are not connected in anyway, because I don't see how "brikwarsy" and "thoughtful" would go together in any way.

Battle of Thermopoly


Thermopoly sounds like some sort of 300-based version of Monopoly

actually to me thermopoly sounds like a version of monopoly where you light the board on fire and all the pawns etc. are made of ice.
Act first, then think, then try to find a way to cover up the horrible mess you made.

It's thoughtless that it wasn't Brikwarsy, not it's thoughtless and wasn't Brikwarsy.

Well, it's got a lot of death and fighting, how the hell can it not be Brikwarish? Gosh, I've been studying the Spartans and the battle of Thermopylae all this year and I still haven't seen that bloody (literally) movie.
I think those stats only apply to non-Mexicans.

To me brikwars is having senseless killing, because its fun. we agree on this yes.

The movie 300 is having killing and dapper lil speaches that try way to hard to be badass for example "this is sparta", for what reason it aint fun, there is no real reason so not really thoughtless but reasonless. I mean there is so much of the spartans fighting in the movie it gets boring, its the smae fight over and over and over and over and over.

seriously you want a brikwarsy movie look at my avatar and there you go. 300 will not be a timeless movie. seriously in 2087 the robot blockbuster cashier didn't even recognize it as ever even being a movie. I asked.
on another note humor is the key in brikwars and I did not hear anyone laugh during 300.

I laughed at many, many parts of 300, but mostly at points where it was probably not really appropriate to do so. I don't know if I've ever let on, but I find sensationally overdramatized violence to be pretty funny.
