300 is a really, really stupid movie. Unbelievably stupid. Brain damagingly stupid. So stupid that, as I was driving home after watching it, I was laughing so hard I almost crashed my car. Infuriatingly, hilariously stupid. Yet it is very popular [see the Mencken quote at the top of this blog].
What makes its popularity even more intriguing is how so many people are reading deep symbolism into a film that is basically a loosely combined series of increasingly ridiculous fight scenes.
Thus, in honor of April Fool's Day, I bring you the most foolish thing I have read in a long, long time.
