Film: 300 II-More homoerotic war-porn

Insert poster/video for film here.

I went to see this today, it was really good. I’m a massive fan of 300-I think looking back through the mists of time it was the first film I downloaded through torrents. I was really chuffed when it finished downloading and actually played properly in my cheap as chips DIVX certified DVD player fae Makro.

As a man-date this went well, I hardly ever go to the cinema-I think the last thing I went to see was Olympus has Fallen- and that was an enforced date night debacle with the wife, I would have preferred Star Trek: Into Darkness but, life is all about compromise. Before that it would have been the first two DC Bond films, first one GREAT second one PISH.

Before the film got going there was an extended sneaky peep at Captain America: The Winter Soldier- it looks nae bad, that Captain is fucking lethal with that star’s and stripe’s bedecked wok he’s always got handy. One man army him, even if he’s missed out on a lot while snoozing.

Captain America II- whipping up a tasty meal in minutes using my wok. FIGHTY FIGHT.

300 is a silly film, but hugely fun-it’s powered by Gerard Butler’s ferocious Spartan King- a shouty, bloodthirsty maniac who also happens to be Scottish. I like that though, and, fact fans- Dorick- the local dialect of the N.E of Scotland is said to have got it’s name from the Roman’s because it reminded them of the Spartan way of talking. I can see the parallels- dour, easy to anger and quarrelsome-that’s surely Aberdeen.

I had been avidly enjoying the trailers for 300:Rise of an Empire (to give it it’s proper title) as and when they popped up on you tube or whatever without actually giving a flying fuck about the plot of the film at all, I assumed rather rashly that the new one would take up exactly where the old film ended- which would have suited me down to the ground really. Why mess with a winning formula?

As other folk have mentioned this is a kind of strange film, it takes place at the same time as the first but on a different battle front- whilst Gerard Butler is shouting and kicking fuck out of those Persian Twats up over by them hot gates the naval battle is where 300 II is happening.

I enjoyed it a lot, Eva Green is great as a nutty swivel eyed mad-one-from shakespears sister-general in this, she kinda steals the show really, every time she was on screen though I kept thinking of this French and Saunders sketch- which I suppose is only funny if you are of a certain vintage.

There is also a semi-hilarious sex scene.

All in all i thought it was tremendous. Loud, stupid and pretty at the same time.

They should all about face and get on with making 300 III pronto. I’m pretty sure I could cobble together a reasonable screenplay in about ten to fifteen minutes.
