So I tend to have random discussions in my head a lot, and the topic of last night's dialogue was an internal debate of which was the better guy movie? Fight Club or 300 Just looking at it from the typical "guy's" point of view and primarily considering action sequences -aka Fight Scenes, and story line. Then delving deeper into the cinematography and score of both. Long story short my results are inconclusive. Both films seem pretty eaqually matched in terms of mascuilinity. However in evaluating synopsis they are two different tales and that'd be comparing apples to oranges.
Fight Club is half gritty bone-cracking brute force and half psycological thriller. With the premise of secret organization and the tone of anarchy and a backdrop of a large city, the whole movie is highly enjoyable.
300 is 2 parts slow motion warfare and 1 part historical epic. The largely CGI tale of a King who went for a walk is undoubtedly a heroic legend among box office buffs. Each of the battles was an incredible visual masterpiece and Snyder did a great job of presenting an already amzing period of time.
It's hard to pick one over the other but IMO I would prefer Fight Club because of it's brain bending ending, and rank it chief among other psycological movies like Inception, Memento, and Shutter Island.
Now It's time to hear your opinions! Tell me which you prefer + why AND by all means suggest and rank more! I'd like to see this as an action movie thread unlike the others and stay relavent. Not to disclude women but keep in mind these movies target the male audience. Thanks
