Conservatist propaganda movie?

I can't believe it's not madness! - A photoshopped image showing king leonidas from the movie 300 in a hilarious manner. The original content comes from "I can't believe it's not Butter!" But King Leonidas' head is shopped in as well as new text, making a funny picture.

On a forum I belong to someone made a comment about how 300 was a conservative propaganda movie. They said that the spartans represented our troops in Iraq, that it depicted the army of xerxes as a "black army of heathens" and drew several other parallels between modern life in a similar way. The comment was political and was deleted by a mod, but I think they made an interesting point. I myself didn't see what they were saying as true I think that it would make an interesting discussion.... So discuss! Dan

I think they were reading too much into it. 300 was based on an actual event. Okay, it wasn't totally true to the accepted event, probably because it went through a graphic novel first.

Yeah, I agree with you. They were definitely taking it a little too far. However while it was an actual event the way the movie depicted it could draw some interesting parallels with an IRL propaganda movie. At any rate I thought it sounded like an interesting discussion ;p Thanks for the response. Dan
