A movie about men who kick ass and get the girl. Hailed as a film noir masterpiece, mostly by peopel who have never seen any other movie that fits into that catagory.
"Did you see Sin City? It's fantastic, one of the best film noir movies I've ever seen?"
"Really? Better than Chinatown?"
"I said film noir, not Kung fu. Jeez!"
A movie on the battle of Thermopylae. Remarkable for its fight scenes and its stunning visuals. You could that it is among the cream of the crop when it comes to movie, just as long as you don't mind your masterpieces predictable, marginally jingoistic, historical inaccuracy and with hammy acting.
"Dude, did you see 300? It's epic, one of the greatest ever!"
"I don't know, it was kind of full of itself, I could see the hot, hot British chick getting fucked up the ass by that guy from the Wire from the get-go. And why does everybody keep yelling? It'd be more dramatic if they talked normally every now and then."
