The Rating System

All opinions are my own. We are all different. What I may think is great, you may this terrible. Don't let my opinios stop you from exploring the vast world of horror in all media.

~Mind Blowing: Search for this movie immediately. It can only be described as pure greatness and possible an instant classic.

~So Good: Highly recommended because for one reason or another it stands out above the usual fair. Put the movie on your radar as it wont disappoint.

~In the Middle: The movie is a nothing special, average affair. It may entertain in the short term but it will be easily forgettable in the long haul.

~Warning: This movie is a cliched driven slop of familiar territory. Only watch if you're really of fan of this type of material.

~Steaming Pile: The movie is absolute garbage, a complete bore, and not worth the time or effort.

Jack & Diane (2012)

Starring: Juno Temple, Riley Keough
Director: Bradley Rust Gray

Premise:
Two teenage girle meet. They start up a budding romance. One learns the other will be leaving the country and

My Take:
I think the movie was attempting to use horror as a metaphor for the unknowns of young love but the ideas seem forced. There's a lot of talking and then wacky sequences thrown in but nothing much is explained or at least explored. The movie seems like it's not able to decide on what type of story to tell. Also, I am fairly sure the scenes are disjointed and not in a linear time line which makes it's really difficult to figure out. The two leads do have chemistry and perform well with what was given.
