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.

Torchwood, Season 2 (2008)

Torchwood: The Complete Second Season [Blu-ray]

Starring: John Barrowman, Eve Myles

The season opens up with the return of Captain Jack Harkness from his mysterious disappearance. He finds the Torchwood team in tact and carrying on their duties. They quickly get over their anger and continue to fight aliens and supernatural beings. This season also delves a little deeper into the nature of The Rift and many of Jack's secrets including his long lost brother, which has ramification for the entire Torchwood team.

My Take:
Torchwood turned it up a notch in its second season. The last two episodes, "Fragments" and "Exit Wounds" are as brilliant as television gets. The season goes to dark places of human emotion and nearly ever episode is better than the previous, which provides for several stand out episodes.

Favorite Episode:
"From Out of the Rain" - In this episode a group of traveling carnival people escape their celluloid prison. The purpose is to steal people's last breath so the traveling show can be remembered forever.

My Take: So Good
