I thought the movie was fun. And extremely riffable. Also, parodiable. Observe, as I mix Edwin A. Abbott's famous book Flatland with 300:

Well, I was working on this for use on my DVD cover, but I might as well spoil it now.



I might switch over the Rifftrax logo to the frameless version, and I'm not happy with the font, but it's a good first draft.

(BTW: anyone seen a 300  style font?)

not really...i think that version works pretty good

i went with a faux greek font for mine.  i think if you get the right style that kinda fits it, im sure that the "officail" font dosent necessarily have to be the only choice.


And yes, ill second that 300 was a good movie, to me anyway.  I know some people hated it, but who cares?
My fav scene is where Queen Gorgo stabs Ubiqutious Bad Guy on the senate floor.  Awesome.

Let me check and back to you in a couple days. I've got like 5000 fonts on my computer; it takes a while to find anything specific.

Well according to google's cache they suggest these two:

http://www.myfonts.com/fonts/letraset/smudger/smudger/

but some of these might be better:

Come on where's that Googoogaga forum member to bash 300.  I guess 300 is very homeoerotic, so I'm sure he liked it.

Well, that was an unnessesary baiting.

  Yeah, 300 was great but should some good riff opps for the boys.  It will give them a chance to express their special love for each other.

    If you like the movie, you should also check out the graphic novel.  Lynn's coloring got much more of a workout than in any book of Sin City and it's great to see the pages that they reproduced in the film.

Well I guess I'll be the nerd here and go on record as saying that I didn't like the film. It looked cool and had some good action, but little else. I didn't care about the characters at all and I sure didn't care whether they lived or died. It got old quick.
