    More precisely, it is about owls who are apparently committed to reenact Snyder's sword-and-sandals blockbuster 300. Not the Battle of Thermopylae, mind you. The film 300. It is like The Society for Creative Anachronism decreed that 2007 was anachronistic enough and decided to recreate in 2010 the slow-motion fight sequences, moral certitude, and craggy sets of King Leonidas' last stand. Oh, and if The Society for Creative Anachronism was staffed entirely by owls.

    It doesnt get better than this .Personally I am going to see the film when it comes to a theatre near me.

    That's the best review ever, Aby? Did you get tickled by the use of the word "anachronism". Other than that, it could have been written by our resident "40" drinker, ziggy. It's a movie about owls dressed up with helmets and cgi. That's it. The review tries to be clever with a couple of (apparently, to you) mind-tickling words, and describes what the movie is about.

    Granted, it has (slightly) more creativity than, "7/10".

    Lets just say for this movie no one is going to do a better review.He brought out the article in a humorous way and at the same time giving the reader what he should expect from the movie.The review is way better than the over analysing "critques" and those boring reads.The title was supposed be "humorous review" but I guess I dint type it in. and moreover whenever I saw the pic of those owls it always kept on reminding me of those internet meme owls

    I could write a review for it, and it would be a real hoot. I could share bits of my wisdom, and ruffle a few feathers at the same time.

    You know who I really hate?...

    You were supposed to say, "Who?".

    And I would have said, "People who imitate owls." It's an old Emo Philips joke.

    Thanks for screwing it up. Some comedy partner you make.


    And you aren't worthy to say Idol's name.

    Actually our conversation was supposed to end like this: (substituting 'Idoleyes' in appropriate places)



    And who is the one who ruined it?

    "real" friends. Now who's being elitist?

    I told Idol I was going to beat on you a bit for irritating him, but I've never had any reason to dislike you. Well, except trying to get me to play the part of SFJ. :disdain:

    Hope you have fun at the owl movie. The trailer makes it look like a lot of work went into making the movie- hopefully they spent a bit of time on the story. How much does it cost to see an American movie in India? What kinds of snacks do you eat at the theater?
