Hey just a question about 300. Well, I'm Iranian (well, half), and my dad is angry at how the movie 300 was made to "portray" Iranians as barabaric and such, which is what I hear. I'm not offended at all by this, I mean it's based off of an actual historical event. The movie wasn't actually made to portray Persians. Anyone agree? I'm certainly not offended, though most Iranians are. Discuss.

Not sarcastic: good for you. I heard that, too, shortly after the movie's debut, and that is complete crap. People need to stop being so easily offended. They should also be able to tell the difference between malicious political commentary and pure, mindless entertainment.

Hey, stop spamming the thread with your shitty Japanese. It's not even spelled properly. u_u;




On topic: I agree with London. Besides, wasn't the movie in a historical setting (note that I have not seen the movie, but only saw trailers and what not)? It certainly shouldn't have any real weight on today's people. :\

That's because most of the people who post on the forum now are kids who aren't interested in politics or philosophy. We used to be much more active here, with older kids/adults posting, but I suppose those sorts have to get a life before younger kids do. D:

Quite honestly, I don't think anyone gives a shit about how the Iranians were portrayed. The people who saw the movie just went to see a bunch of fighting, they really didn't look at it politically. Anyways, I doubt that modern America knows that Persians are Iranians Rolling Eyes

I knew it from this old Scooby-Doo episode, lol.

I have no idea what highteckdudu said, but it's assuredly not on topic and not worth translating. It's also retarded and annoying to post in a language that the other person can't read and that you can't write.

I said, "Shut up. Every time you post, you look stupider."

My point exactly, like how others are so offended so easily. I was just stating how I don't look at the film that way, like others do >.>
