Yeah...lol...because Iranians (Persians)always portray Americans and Jews in a positive light.

Its also idiotic that they say that Warner Bros. is rascist, only because they are too stupid to realize that they just made costumes based on the graphic novel the movie was based on.

Wow, now that I see the truth, I don't think I can watch 300. If only the characters looked like the illustrations on the left. That would be one intense movay.

Not to mention the guys in the masks are not Persian, their Asians. And what the fuck are the bitching about, the movie is based off HISTORY. Do you see the Jews complaining about the plethora of movies made about them?

jews complained pretty heartily about the passion of whatshisface

How many actually believe that every word in the bible is true?

a lot... thats why the world is a dangerous place

Every word in the bible is a true word. Found them all in a dictionary, less the pronouns, so I suppose Sodom and Gomorrah could be 'untrue' words.

It's upsetting because it portrays a realistic portrayal of greek superiority over the persians...Nothing wrong here.

At least you would get to measure them up for their speedos.

persians... what a cute little ethnicity that we could watch from afar for our own personal amusement. Don't get too close, though.. they combust without warning.

Wow look at all the support they got. They barely had enough people to hold up the sign. Hahahaha

No they're wrong. Persians look just like they do in 300. I don't know why they wear those Masks.
11 years ago
Those were the Asians in the Persian army, all of the Persian forces were sucky.
11 years ago
If I got it right the persian immortals were the "elite army" of the persian king.
NOT chinease samurais or whatever.
11 years ago
samurais are chinese now? keep in mind, the persian king was pwning the known world and the idea is that he'd take the best warriors and make them his elites. fuckin scrub...

If only Americans bitched as much as everyone else when we are portrayed poorly in a movie
11 years ago
yeah...americans are actually worse (in certain areas of the united states like the hicks and ignorant fucks in the middle of nowhere)

you are a moron epidemic, hicks arent the problem, its the bleeding heart bitch asses such as yourself that cause the most problems in the US. hicks are too lazy to do anything.
11 years ago
Whiny ass bitches... it's based on a graphic novel. It's NOT historically accurate and they ADMIT that. "Boo hoo... it's racist." Does that mean they're prejudiced against people that wear masks and have piercings too? OMG, it's the black emos, goths, and LARPers that should be offended. Not the rich white people with nothing better to do that went to see the movie anyway.

What? I love the racist portrayal in this movie!!! The Greeks are more badass than the persians. 300 portrayed this. And thus this movie is racist? Of course it is... because it portrays races....thus it portrays racism. You all got alot to learn...

Actually, Norouz is the traditional Iranian New Year, which I would expect you to know. However, it is also celebrated all over the Middle East, west Asia and eastern Europe. It is also the new year celebration of the Baha'i faith, among other religions. Which is, sadly, why I know all this: my dad's a baha'i and used to make me go to all the festivals and stuff.

if the persian empire actually fought in the outfits depicted in that picture, they must have won all of their battles by killing the enemies incapacitated by laughter....
so i guess all comic books need to be based on 100% fact.... so at the end of the comic and movie i *GUESS* they should have shown king leonidis being decapitated and crucified by the persians, or would that have been 'racist' to show something historically accurate.
i sure as fuck hope that if there are aliens out there they don't start watching our sci-fi movies........

i saw some mexicans watching starship troopers and they didn't seem too upset.

That's nothing, check out what the Teutonic Knights were alleged to have looked like in "Alexander Nevsky." Medieval Darth Vaders on horseback.

what are they moaning about? should see our teeth...

like in "taxi driver" in the sign ..they emphasized the wrong word.. "this" should be underlined , not "is"...remember ??

Yeah. Make sure you stay clear when you are out boat fishing.

I say it would have been hilarious if 300 people formed a phalanx at the other end of the street.
11 years ago
Should have gotten somebody to come screaming down the street on an R1 and burst through their banners.

wearing nothing but a cape and a shield/sword combo run through all the posters yelling "THIS! IS! SPARTA!!!!!"
11 years ago
Yeah, it was pretty racist and intolerant movie. Those fucking Greeks are hate mongers. They hate on puny people, fat people, man-boy lovers, gimps... at least the Persians were accepting of other races and deformities and shit :P

I think the people that try to make wild claims that 300 was some kind of misrepresented "historical document" should stick to watching Galaxy Quest. At least then they would have something in common with the characters.

Actually, the Spartans were historically very much pro-homosexuality. The actually had it more or less institutionalized: everyone had sex with either gender.

No sense of irony or sarcasm in my post i guess.

great, admin, I love your support of the true gods of war...haha. The movie was actually pretty correct straight down to the type of weaponry used and how it was used.

Why do they care so hard? The immortals kicked ass in the movie and looked badass. And the xerxes was way more badass. <>< mantrain

We need to throw another "300" party in Tehran, only this time with 3 more zeros.

300 hundred is only racist because it portrayed that greeks are more superior to Persians. Subject closed.
