    Prom Night

    ½

    This is the worst chaperoned prom ever. Who has prom at a hotel and freely allows kids to get a room. That's why no one knows where they're going to college. They're busy figuring out what appropriate '16 and Pregnant" baby names for their prom babies.

    ★½

    I hated "300" and I never planned to watch the sequel. However, it was part of a double feature at the local drive-in, so I stuck around for it. That said, it was an improvement over "300" as far there being toned-down racism and sacrilegious imagery being pushed to fluff up the Greeks.

    If it were for Artemesia's attitude and wardrobe, I would have given it only 1/2 star because overall, it's quite a lazy sequel.
