    Ok I’m so tired of all these spoofs. They were funny at first, now it’s just annoying. Come up with some new material.

    WHY!? WHY!? WHY!? What a waste of time and money. There hasn’t been a good spoof movie since Scarey Movie 2.

    MEET THE SPARTANS is a thrilling prequel to the blockbuster hit 300. In my opinion, it improves upon the original and should delight fans old and new.

    The fact that you think this film is magnificient says a lot about you. And not in a good way. Are you 14 years old and living in a trailer???

    WOW! Did ya see the part n Rambo where he takes out 6 bad guys with his walker??

    27 dresses who’s in that Imelda Marcos?

    This is a a lame season for new movies. They should start shooting that Depp, Dillinger flick early.

    It should be interesting to see how they close out the trilogy.

  16. Stan • January 29, 2008 @ 11:47 AM

    I liked it a lot. The actors took it up a level and the production values were even better the second time around. My only complaint is that they should have called it 301.

    If you go to such a film looking for a complex plot and deep, developed characters, your in for nothing but a let down. This film is great taken for what it is, a comedic spoof.

    Spoofs can get annoying. They will just keep on making more because most people think it is funny.
