Frank Miller’s 300 Advance Screening – Hoyts Woden

By Bazza - 26 March 2007 23

Did anyone see this listing for the Advance Screening of Frank Miller’s 300 in Saturdays Canberra Times?

Canberra Times Advert

Nothing is mentioned on the Hoyts website, but it seems the answers are listed here.

I wanna see if anyone actually enters the Best Dressed Spartan competition in the current weather.

[ED – err, what is it? Oh, wait, it’ll be this]

What’s Your opinion?

“How many times have you seen a standing ovation to a really good movie (some deserve it) in a standard movie screening.”

Who claps in a movie? maybe if you went to the world premeire, and the director and all the actors were in attendance. But at any other time its pointless, No one who cares can hear you except for other people who are clapping. No one is there to apreciate it so why waste your time?

sounds excruciatingly dull.

what the heck is house of heroes

oh, I should have mentioned… it’s all CGI crap. Been out here for a couple of weeks (and in the dodgy shops for a month)

The_Watcher: it isn’t a stretch to guess that the people with (sold out) preferred seating tickets will get all of the best seats.

bonfire: don’t know, haven’t seen it, just repeating what I’ve heard. Five seconds on Google should get you plenty of details.

Bah. Romans, Spartans, Persians – we trampled them all with our elephants.

They ran like f**k.

I hear it’s only amazing if you’re into extreme violence, right-wing politics, veiled homoeroticism, and progressively longer shouts of “Spaaaartaaaaaa!” Lots of testosterone.

Sounds almost like a meeting of Young Labor or the NSW Liberals…

Will this be another “Troy” where big Hollywood stars with the acting ability of a 4×2 lump of hoop pine get to wear skirts and carry swords?

So did the Carthaginians, just ask Hasdrubahl.

mutley 1:18 pm 27 Mar 07

Apparently the Iranians aren’t that impressed with the depiction of Persians as child-eating monsters etc.

The Spartans loved a bit of drilling for mud… thought it was character building.

how is the battle of thermopylae ‘right wing politics’ and ‘homoeroticism’ ?

“paying extra for dodgy seats an at advance screening”

I’ll start by saying I’m going to this screening. I went to the Clerks II screening they did, and it was great fun.

Paying extra? It looks like it will cost me a whole $2.50 more then if i waited to go into a session with people who either don’t know squat about the story, or is filled with chatting teenagers.

Dodgy seats? Oh that’s right Hoyts rips out their comfy seats and puts in old primary school seats for special events.

I have found in the past that Advance screenings are usually far better than an in season screening. The people there, are there to see the movie, not just people who have decided to kill time by going to a movie. How many times have you seen a standing ovation to a really good movie (some deserve it) in a standard movie screening.
The fact that it has prizes and maybe a twit or 2 in costume is a bonus.

But hey, it’s just my opinion!

With all due deference to Blamemonkey’s mates, I hear it’s only amazing if you’re into extreme violence, right-wing politics, veiled homoeroticism, and progressively longer shouts of “Spaaaartaaaaaa!” Lots of testosterone.

Personally, I don’t see the point of paying extra for dodgy seats an at advance screening that only beats the regular season by four days.

bonfire 9:18 am 27 Mar 07

i abhor the violence.

why cant we all just get along.

Blamemonkey 8:16 am 27 Mar 07

the should be a told in there somewhere….

Blamemonkey 8:16 am 27 Mar 07

Supposedly this Movie is awesome! I have it on fairly good authority (mates from the States) and I have been if you want to secure your manhood you will go and see the movie
