The Gamer’s Utopia Movie Preview: Meet the Spartans

Posted by:Kal

The film 300 was, by far, one of the greatest, if not only, Greco-roman themed film of 2007. Not even a year later, somebody has to make some kind of
crappy parody about God-knows what, to feed off 300’s money wagon. And let it be the team who created Epic Movie, to parasitically nourish itself off of 300’s success. That’s right; Meet the Spartans will be hitting theaters at the end of January. Hopefully without a bang…we wouldn’t want viewers to have seizures while watching the movie, would we?

There is a bit of negativity in my tone when writing about Meet the Spartans. I mean, they “steal” a perfectly alright movie and then completely mock everything the movie was about. However, that’s really not what makes me angry, it’s the fact that people will actually pay to see it (Even though I will be guilty as well.) They gather a load of two-rate actors and actresses and mush them together with a despicable production crew and will make triple or even quadruple the amount they invest. How outlandish is that?

Anyways, Epic Movie 2 Meet the Spartans will parody not only 300, but also other movies such as Cloverfield, Transformers, Shrek the Third, Ghost Rider and Stomp the Yard. And mock celebrities such as Britney Spears and Chris Crocker. Hopefully, this movie will be a less of a letdown than its predecessor, but don’t hold your breath. Maybe I’ll get through this movie by drowning myself in Coca-cola and popcorn…That’s always positive.

I don't know about this movie. Epic Movie also looked good, but I was disappointed.
