A comment by Ms.ManChow on We is teh angry.
300 rocked, no question, besides all the lovely men with spears and capes, it was filled with fantastic dialog about the meaning of freedom, the cost and it's great worth. I didn't bother with Black Hawk Down. Saving Private Ryan was stupid as well. No soldier, especially of that time, ever told someone to "earn it". What a load of crap. You served, fought and possibly died to defend freedom, not to protect one man. We are by no means a collective, but freedom is a group effort.
