this 'breadtuber' says that if you like the fascist movie
300, you're a fascist, and you should repend or be canceled,
like Zack Snyder should be. here

It's totally homoerotic that movie, fans are that movie are
all most certainly closet benders

I think a lot of the fascist fashion sense seems a bit gay,
all that leather and tight pants

didn't Frank Miller write it, I know that guy is a
libertarian, Robocop 2 was an anti drugs film.

it does go into that

i think so too, by the way. and i guess that's just some
'rules for thee, not for me', like nazi's doing that sort of
stuff is somehow okay

watching the vid now, The Persian king Xerces looks like a
sort of caricature of a lefty liberal transgender sort of
thing

I wasn't by 300s politics I just don't like films based on
graphic novels its for like 13 year old angsty boys who like
Metallica, If I was 13 I'd probably like it as well

there's so many. what is one you do think okay? (there's
many i still want to read to comics from. the boys,
invincible, being recent ones)

to be fair I don't really know many, I'm sure there are some
very good ones, just the ones I've seen tend to not be up my
street. I don't think i've seen many programs or films i've
liked over the past 20 years to be honest but I wouldn't
listen to me I'm quite jaded and cynical

i'm wondering what mermaidman thinks of the scene in
gladiator (2000) where they're all naked, and how 300
compares. i will cite the actual documented history of the
spartans

[sparta would allow male lovers to fight together because
they believed it would make them fight harder for each
other]

this is; i didn't click on it. it just feels like this is
the viral summary you want

sparta openly sanctioned gay lovers serving together because
they believed they'd get better results on the battlefield.
something for everyone to dislike here really. but i have no
idea if this has any bearing on the movie 300

because that movie was boring poop i watched it once while
drinking heavily, and even that was not enough to have me
consider watching it again. i did always mean to watch "meet
the spartans," however

10,000 BC also poop, i think something about having a large
integer in the title just tanks most any movie

does anyone care what a youtuber says?
i know i know, sadly the answer is yes.

anyway, i feel popular movies (especially comic adaptations,
anti heroes / super heroes) glorify and justify violence to
no end. with all due respect to grey area characters and
clever story writing or how much the hero struggles with
killing another, it is, what it is. bottom line is always
the total annihilation of the other side aka evil
wrongdoers.
how could this not be authorian?

or in the case of the 300 of sparta dieing gloriously in a a
cadaver gehorsam elite volkssturm. now these are harsh words
for all i know xerxes was the terrible and wrongful invader,
but the antics are still kind of reminiscent.

honestly, when 300 came out i think it was great at what it
is. a gorgeuosly filmed epic fighting tale, but also
essentially a war movie and i enjoyed watching the skillful
slaughter that looked like a painting come alive.

apart from 300, to me frank miller has embraced and
sometimes openly portrayed the bad side of being the
vigilante. they are not nice, but they do what has to be
done and his heroes are kind of monsters themselves.
think of that what you want. is it justification or is it
just showing what its like to oppose violence on to others.

anyway, while i think there are less and less rightwing
undertones in those kind of movies and they are more and
more directed to a nerdy, woke, diverse or lefty audience
today its basically still the same outcome. it wouldnt have
made a difference if we had the biggest slomo gay orgy with
fake jizz back in 300 although that may be just a sight :)

How Wikipedia Got Ex Machina (2014) Wrong, by Shaun (king of breadtube)

Annihilation and Decoding Metaphor, co-king of Breadtube.

after watching these both i'm wondering whether the two
movies are even scifi, or just both convoluted metaphors for
what women endure

The Church Play Cinematic Universe, by Jenny Nicholson, queen of breadtube

it's both woke and cruel. kinda awesome. i wonder how much
about the spantan mythos is fiction, but i don't want to be
a spoilsport

i've never finished watching 300. probably i turned it off
and put on Gladiator again

i thought 300 was interesting precisely because it was such
nakedly nazi filmmaking, what else would people like about
it?

not watching these but allegory, especially allegory about
current issues, is the saddest kind of analysis

i guess the only question is whether you like this Alex
Garland guy or not. he made Ex Machina and Annihilation

i did like these movies and these interpretations added
stuff

cultural appropriation in Johnny Phantom, then
