Rectifying a small oversight from three episodes ago! Many have written to point out that 300 (2006) is, to some extent, a remake itself, so Nick and Dimitri go back to the movie that truly started it all: 1962’s The 300 Spartans, which inspired the comic book on which Zack Snyder’s movie is based. Then they briefly review 300: Rise of an Empire (2014). Come back next time as we discuss Captain America (1990).
