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.

R.I.P.D. (2013)

Starring: Ryan Reynolds, Jeff Bridges, Kevin Bacon, Mary Lousie Parker, Marisa Miller, Robert Knepper, Mike O'Malley
Director: Robert Schwentke


Premise:
A cop is murdered by his partner after they steal gold during a bust. In the afterlife he is recruited to Rest In Peace Department which specializes in protecting the world from the undead. He is paired with a new partner and insists on solving his own murder case, which turns out to be part of huge plot to unleash the dead on Earth.

My Take:
Good stars (with Jeff Bridges doing his Rooster Cogburn impersonation again) and solid special effects but the movie feels like it just missed on something. Not sure what the something is though... maybe a little more character depth and details to the plot. The movie could be worse.

Rating: In the middle
