For the second week in a row general Themistokles and the soldiers of 300: Rise of an Empire were able to fight off all comers to reign supreme at the top of the latest #VUTop10 ranking. This time its biggest threat came from Bad Words, a tale about a grown man, played by Jason Bateman, with the will to take down any kid who comes between him and the National Spelling Bee title.
