Tropic Thunder – 9/10
As parody-comedies go, Tropic Thunder is at the near top of its game. It has great actors to portray its characters, a clearly defined plot, moments of absolute hilarity and some nice action sequences. Writer, producer, actor and director Ben Stiller has created a film with enough satire, action and comedy to satiate the gore and humor hound in most genre seekers.
300 (CE)– 9/10
300 revolves around the zealous leadership of King Leonidas of Sparta, played by Gerard Butler, and a litany of testosterone infused dialogue spouted by him and most of the other cast members. Queen Gorgo (Lena Headey), who had three or four lines in the entirety of Frank Miller’s graphic book, finds her role greatly expanded in the film as the pugnacious and aggressive spouse to Leonidas.
