300 to be IMAX-sized Levels Of Badassness! Now if only it were 3D too!

Hey Folks, Harry here... I love 300. Thought the movie tickled every fancy it could and not be arrested at BNAT last year, and the idea of it being IMAX size... Well, that's peachy keen. That's like chocolate mint ice cream eaten with Girl Scout Thin Mints cool! The only thing better, as my headline stated, would be if we were also getting the whole film in IMAX 3D... the film is ideal for the 3D conversion - and just getting to sit in an audience with those blood splatters cascading over the audience. BLISS. And... well to see Gerard Butler's sculpted man ass shimmy and shake before my unblinking eyes... or the sweat dripping down his sculpted bronze-aged corncob abs. Perhaps they're right to not have it in 3D too. It should be in 300D, that'd be the biggest tit ever!

    IMAX would deliver the goods!

    by WildcatWildcat

    But I'm sure 300 can still deliver even without IMAX goodness.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 1:08 a.m. CST

    Yes, 3D would be DELIGHTFUL...

    by MCVamp

    Mmmm...300 sets of perfect pectoral muscles, rippling in combat. Jambi! The chocolate icing! Let the games begin!!! Let us cavort like the Romans of old! YOU know the ones I mean...

    3d would be too decadent

    by s0nicdeathmonkey

    it would be too much for this film.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 1:12 a.m. CST

    Imax 3D is the ONLY good 3D

    by symphy

    You simply can't watch any of the red/blue ugly glasses style afterward. I thought that Polar Express was amazing.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 1:13 a.m. CST

    And, hey, I want Brokeback in Imax 3D

    by symphy

    That'd be fucking sweet. OH WAIT no that would be awful, holy God.

    "fist in your ass"

    by Renholder

    This is easily the best "first" blunder I have ever seen.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 1:15 a.m. CST

    Actually, IMAX 3D porno might rock.

    by symphy

    Can you imagine? Swatting at the illusion of a six foot cock bouncing in front of your face? Crazy.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 1:42 a.m. CST

    3D is over-rated

    by Reelheed

    Didn't really work in superman (especially in the sinking ship sequence) and even some scenes in polar express fell flat (see what i did there?). Anything with action and lots of quick cuts is just made o look a mess by 3d. Still 300 @ imax will be cool!

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 1:46 a.m. CST

    Also wouldn't 300D mean

    by Reelheed

    that a girl has a massive 280" ribcage with two comparably tiny melon sized boobs hanging off it? ergh.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 1:58 a.m. CST

    "it's comin' right at us!" -crash!

    by Zardoz

    I can't wait to see this movie in IMAX, 3D would just be icing on the cake!

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 3:15 a.m. CST

    Yeah, Damn You Third Dimension!

    by raw_bean

    "Fist in your ass", man that was funny. <p>At this point I'm just dying to see the film, regardless of the format. The book rocks.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 4:25 a.m. CST

    That's one big gay movie!

    by BannedOnTheRun

    I keed. Now excuse me while I go watch Harley Davidson and the Marlboro Man again.

    300 to be IHOP-sized levels of badness!

    300 in 3D?

    by Sharpe

    That'd be great at an IMAX, but I can't help but think of Jaws 3D whenever someone mentions 3D. 'Wow! The skeleton's fingers are coming out of the screen! Technology has finally peaked!'

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 6:03 a.m. CST

    300 in 3D?

    by BannedOnTheRun

    Now I understand why the script had King Leonidas playing with a paddle ball during the expository scenes.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 6:25 a.m. CST

    Our local Imax...

    by morGoth

    ...managers are to pansyfied to show 300. Dang, too bad I'll have to go outta town to see it on the BIG screen. Can't wait for this either. ** Hullo beansie...guess that answers the "Is he dead or something?" question.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 7:06 a.m. CST

    Fist in Ass - hahaha. Where in Dc will this play IMAX?

    by kinghenryVIII

    Anyone know? The Smithsonian or Air and Space. Damn! Need to see it BIG.<p> And all the homoerotic drippy sweat man abs stated in the article .... do I have to see this acyually SMELLING like pussy now to not be mistaken for gay?

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 7:07 a.m. CST

    And finnally - some news that isn't boring as hell!

    Needed to stop the Indiana Jones and the .... Sundance is a yawn this year.

    The Real Story Here

    by ImJustSaying

    Is that this, I'm pretty sure, is the first R-Rated movie to go I-Max. Am I right? Or was Reloaded huge too?

    Gerard Butler's sculpted man ass.

    Seriously, what's up with that IMVU ad? So we can talk to some naughty Japanese schoolgirls?

    Gayest movie since Top Gun?

    by DirkD13"

    Maybe Will Young will make a piss-taking music vid of 300 in 20 years time. Harry you can keep Gerard Butler, I'll take Lena Heady instead (sch-fucking-wing!).

    Harry's homoerotic overtones

    by jrbarker

    make me laugh

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 12:31 p.m. CST

    Nope, V for Vendetta was rated R

    by jim

    and I saw that one in Imax

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 12:39 p.m. CST

    Uhhh...300D just means

    by Aznbuddy

    It'll have the biggest rib cage EVAR. Remember kids, the NUMBER is the rib cage, the LETTER is the cup size. That's how big the boobie is, not the woman! I would HATE to meet a woman with a 300 inch circumference ribcage in a dark alley...

    peachy keen, like chocolate mint?

    Nice way to mix metaphors, Harry me boy.

    What overtones?

    by Arion214

    If you see homoerotic overtones to this movie, it says more about you than about the movie. I've seen several ads where it shows women kissing, and women naked, and a woman being made love to by a man but _you_ seem to hone in on the male physique as though just seeing abs and ass is the same as being gay. Gay guys may love this movie and so will straights and women and all sorts of people. So your juvenile comments about this movie mark you as a silly little twit who fears being labled as gay. The movie will be amazing despite your bevis and buthead sniggers. 300 at IMAX? I'm so there and I hope you little boys stay home and watch your porn so you can feel all masculine.

    Dude, put down the chocolate mint ice cream and the cookies. Fuck! Think about your heart man. Just cuz you're a Yank doesn't mean it's okay to be *ahem* hefty.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 8:50 p.m. CST

    What overtones? Arion214, you mst be joking.

    by Lissa-Triana

    I've seen this movie and it is full of homoerotic overtones. The two warrior friends (brothers in arms if you will) may have been Spartans, but they were very "Greek"-like. They were watching each other’s backs in a few ways. I have no doubt that they will be a favorite of the slash girls after this movie comes out. And King Xerxes was a bit fey-like himself and he wanted a piece of King Leonidas' ass (which I for one DO NOT want to see on an IMAX sized screen. It was bad enough the first time. Guess I could close my eyes at that part). I saw men concubines in his harem as well as the woman.

  • Jan. 26, 2007, 10:50 p.m. CST

    The only way you can see this movie...

    by Zarles

    ...and not look like a total flamer is if throughout the screening, you partake in a threesome with Jenna Jameson and Tracy Lords, drink an entire 24-pack of MGD, wearing a Oakland Raiders football jersey, and ride around on a riding lawnmower while screaming "VAN HALEN REUNION TOUR, BABY! FUCK YEEEEEEEEAAAAHHHH!!!"
