Meet the Spartans Poster

I’m a little confused, perhaps you people can help me out here. Wasn’t this movie called Epic Movie? Didn’t it get released last year? Didn’t it suck, hard? Have we learned nothing from that?

Even moving beyond the similarities with Epic Movie and the obvious excess of building a movie around a spoof of a film that is not even one year old, isn’t the image shockingly unfunny? You’d think they would manage to get a least a couple of laughs with all those references, but the jokes are so utterly bad. Is calling the pit in 300 where the guy falls “Pit of Death” really the best they could do? Oh how I miss the original Airplane.

All that said, I think this is a great poster. It tells you exactly what the movie is and exactly why you shouldn’t see it. And right there, it saved you from wasting a solid two hours. What more can you ask for?

    I know it’s a spoof movie, but couldn’t they have tried to make everyone look a LITTLE more Grecian?
