For those of you have yet to see 300, do yourselves a favor and see it. (Warning: Spoiler Alert)
This movie is not just about the past. It's about today. Right now.
It's about each one of you who stands in the breach against the enemy.
And it's about each one of you who stands against the enemy within, who would happily widen that breach.
And so I say to the left:We are the tip of the spear.
We will fight you. We will never yield.
This will not be over quickly. You will not enjoy this.
"Tip of the spear?"
Why do I feel like Andy Dufresne in Shawshank prison when I read this?
Oddly this hysterical little rant in which the conservative author is quite serious about how conservatives resemble Spartans, reminded me of a funny remark I read last week in the comment section of Slash Film regarding the possibility of a sequel to 300.
I thought 300 was the most homo-erotic thing I have ever seen on screen. Coincidently, all the frat boys at my school loved it.
The 101st Fighting Keyboardists sitting alone in their parent's basement, waxing poetic about the courage and bravery demonstrated in 300 would do us all a favor if they would just admit that real appeal of that movie for them is that it has a bunch of buff, half-naked men running around jabbing other men with their big spears.
They might also want to check out Mamma Mia! when it's released in a couple of weeks. Although it won't be as bloody as 300, I'm sure they'll find something that appeals.
