This is Sparta. Full scene.

Ah, 300. I've been blogging about Anime a while now, and I've been wanting to do something a little different for this post. What better to entice Geeks, than with GREEKS? Ok, so almost none of these actors are real Greeks, but 300 spawned a Geek meme that was popular for more than 15 minutes, even spawning a far worse movie, Meet The Spartans, which was a spoof that hardly did justice to the source material.

Not that 300 was the perfect film, many viewers found it disagreeable. However its legacy will undoubtedly remain among action movie fans and Geeks who enjoy a good "kicking men into a pit of death" scene.


That was the catch cry for one of last year's most popular films. However historically inaccurate 300 was, I don't think that's going to harm its popularity.
