This is madness!

Ahh, 300. Due to a number of reasons, I've boycotted anything to do with Frank Miller for some time now. But the, er, visuals of this movie always did look rather, uhhhh, stimulating.

I mean, basically it's about a bunch of buff, testosterone-laden warriors who parade around in leather briefs and capes the whole movie, right?

Right.

Very factual.

But while I may never watch the movie itself, there's always the bara fanart that inevitably accompanies it.

Of course, due to the nature of the film pretty much any fanart is bara by default.

This is Sparta.

  1. I don't want to sound like an "angry gay," but I was really offended when I watched 300. Yes, as a diehard testosterone-action movie fan, I have to admit that the action sequences were great, the gore was epic, the monsters were perfect, and the men were sexy and macho.

    But why did Frank Miller think he could put homophobic undertones in the movie and NOT let anybody notice it? It's written, throughout history, that the Spartans practiced pederasty (man x boy sex) just as much as any other Greek culture at the time. But Miller made the Spartans in the movie frown upon the Persian's gay sex, and made the sodomy of the time into an aspect of the enemy, something that made you a sissy, or made you bad. UGH!

  2. Hahah, yeah, that's another reason I refuse to ever actually watch the thing.

    Man, Frank Miller, just . . . MAN.

  3. Lol I'm just not quite sure WHAT he was thinking. It MUST have sounded somewhat like this in his head:...

    "Ok. So hear me out, Frank! I'm gonna make a movie--An OUTRAGEOUSLY homoerotic movie--you know, lots of naked men with diehard brotherly love and all that. But I'll make it homophobic--totally homophobic--like, rewrite history in such a homophobic way to push my own agenda. It'll be a hit!"

  5. The thing about Frank Miller is that it's hard to tell whether or not he realizes how ridiculous the stuff he makes is. He's supposedly working on a prequel to 300 which could be interesting.

    Personally, I'd take the TV show Spartacus: Blood & Sand over 300 any day.

  7. With 300: I watched it when I was pretty drunk. That tends to help.

    Also, the fact that I would wreck Gerard Butler. (Or let him wreck me. Hell, for all I care Jennifer Aniston could watch.)

    ...I'M SHALLOW OKAY

    Honestly, though, 300 is probably the most brosexual movie in existence. I mean, seriously - the Spartans are dressed in capes and briefs and nothing else.. On what planet is that getup NOT manservice? Truth be told, the homophobia is pretty much the only thing that keeps it from being full-out gay porn. (It's still gay porn - it's just in denial.)
