300 – RISE OF AN EMPIRE [Review]: The Devil Did My Eyebrows.

300 - RISE OF AN EMPIRE [Review]: The Devil Did My Eyebrows.
I can’t say 300: Rise of an Empire is a bad movie, because it’s not -- if you acknowledge that it’s a stereotypical blockbuster Hollywood sequel, that is. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AzNE-DpNkDI Cheesy punchlines, recycled elements from the original 300, and overused 3D CGI are all in full effect, of course, but we’ll get into that later.
