300! We discuss Frank Miller and his new film 300. Is it the best film of 2007 or just a testosterone romp? You probably decided, but we will discuss! Also, is Captain America really dead and is Iron Man to blame or George Bush? Can goats really play guitars? So many questions...
The film 300 is based on a graphic novel by Frank Miller which is based loosely on the historical Battle of Thermopylae in 480 BC. A small group of Greeks with 300 Spartans as the core of the Greek fighting force held off the Persians at the pass of Thermopylae. The tank team gives the low down on the film's historical truth and fiction. They take a stab at the film's symbolism and ponder if the film is simply war propaganda. Listen to the show to hear it all.
