I'm not saying there should be a male-male love story in 300. What I'm saying is that it shouldn't censor the male-male love bonds that were consdiered pivotal to military success. You can tell that the makers of 300 have been selective, depicting heterosexual interactions in all their glory but not the male-male ones. I even believe there was a femae-female kiss in the trailer. LOL. What more evidence do you need that 300 is being tailored to the sleazy straight guy fantasy?

No, it would be more like leaving out who the crew of the Enola Gay slept with the night before they dropped the bomb on Hiroshima.

And no, the irony of the name "Enola Gay" is not lost on me.

When I watch the trailer, I see historical accuracy just dripping off every frame....

Seriously, what sense of realism are you trying to draw from this movie, art?

How can this not be considered trolling by now? Art posts the exact same thread over and over, he just finds a different target for each thread. No intelligent discussion ever comes from his side of the argument, he just posts his "evidence" again and again and proclaims victory. I'm all for having a discussion about this, but he doesn't want to talk, he just likes preaching about "sleazy straight guys."

Even if you've seen only the trailer for this, it's patently OBVIOUS that it is a FANTASY film, only LOOSELY based on any historical events.

Art. Enough is enough.

It's one thing to take issue with a film that you've actually seen or something that is actually dealing with issues of homosexuality, but your crusade to condemn everything and anything as being anti-bi or anti-gay has become a consistent disruptive force on the forum.

And as such, it ends now.

Also... From someone who has actually SEEN the movie, our movie reviewer David Walker calls 300 "Homoerotic"
