Another 300 Comment
Last night my son went to see the movie 300.
He loved it giving it a 9.3 out of 10. (He's very precise with his reviews.)
I mention this because it gives me another excuse to talk about the crazy political debate surrounding this movie.
The left wing, politically correct crowd hate it not because it's conservative (which it isn't) but simply because it's not liberal.
Here's how the film's director Zack Snyder responded:
"When someone in a movie says, ‘We’re going to fight for freedom,’ that’s now a dirty word, Europeans totally feel that way. If you mention democracy or freedom, you’re an imperialist or a fascist. That’s crazy to me.”
It's crazy to me too.
