300 is a pretty sweet movie about abs, bromance and shit. But do you know what’s even sweeter? Except for watching a beautiful sunrise hand in hand with that special someone, of course. You’re about to find out.
300 is a 2006 American epic fantasy war film based on the 1998 comic series of the same name by Frank Miller and Lynn Varley. Both are fictionalized retellings of the Battle of Thermopylae within the Persian Wars. The film was directed by Zack Snyder, while Miller served as executive producer and consultant. It was filmed mostly with a super-abs-deluxe key technique, to help replicate the imagery of the original comic book.
The plot revolves around King Leonidas, who leads 300 super cute Spartans into battle against the Persian “god-tranny” Xerxes and his invading army of super many soldiers. As the battle rages, Incest Queen from Game of Thrones attempts to rally support in Sparta for her husband.
Despite their minuscule number, the Spartans fearlessly fight their way through thousands upon thousands of Persian soldiers. Once the few remaining men reach Xerxes, Leonidas manages to land a scratch on the god-tranny himself, and in doing so, expose his mortality. Then the Spartans live happily ever after. Just kidding. They all die. But their sacrifice paves the way for a united Greece to pick up arms and eventually win the war.
Pretty neat story, huh? Impressive how all that could be achieved with only 300 men. Now, multiply that by a thousand and then some. That’s how many we are now. Can you imagine the majestic stories that will be told about us?
