More 300 views
You know something’s become a cultural phenomenon when it’s used as a springboard for humor pieces, on the assumption that viewers and readers will "get it" because the source material has become firmly embedded in our collective consciousness. So it was with great amusement that I read Dr. PZ Myers’ take on 300 wherein he reveals that the movie is really about "a retelling of the creation-evolution struggle!" Next up, his similar interpretation of Grindhouse!
On a more serious note is artist Chris Weston’s I Hate 300 analysis, in which he pulls no punches in finding the movie "the most racist, homophobic and conservative film that I’ve ever had the misfortune to endure." Weston later confesses that it took him about a week to get over the experience, so for good or ill the movie seems to be making quite an impact.
