300...why is it hated by critics but loved by movie goers?

Postby sifon187 » Wed Mar 14, 2007 10:28 pm

I went at watched 300 on Sunday and was impressed. The look of the movie and awesome fight scenes blew me away. I was looking around at what the critics were saying online and alot of them did not like 300. I have came to this conclusion. Anyone over the age of 50 hates any movie that does not envolve signing or deep family valves. What did you guys think of 300?

the compliants I've read center around the film's look and style...maybe they are afraid of this next level of film making...

It's a movie not a film.

Critics tend to go for the artsy stuff rather than big action.

as per your definition link...When it's art, you call it a film. When it's mainstream garbage, it's called a movie....I'm sensing you didn't like the movie...

As an aside, I haven't seen the film yet, the phrase "next level" is being used far too much lately to describe things that are different from the norm. Different is not necessarily better... or worse, just different. :)

That wasn't my intention, I was trying to answer the orignal question about why the critics seem to be less than enamored with it.

To answer your question, I don't like most mainstream crap but to me this looks pretty cool and I'm looking forward to the DVD release.
