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.

Alcatraz, Season 1 (2011)

Starring: Sarah Jones, Sam Neill, Jorge Garcia

In 1963 the prisioners and guards of Alcatraz prison mysteriously disappeared. In 2012, they have mysteriously returned. A group of people are determined to find out why.

My Take:
An interesting premise. The show got better as the season went on as the mystery to what really happened to these prisoners and why started to unfold. A very likeable cast helps the cause.
I am very interested to see where this all leads.

Favorite Episode:
"Tommy Madesen" - While there really wasn't a single episode that stood out as being superior over the others the season finale works well with in the entire story.

Rating: In the middle (but with potential for a great season two)
