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.

True Detective, Season 2 (2015)

Starring: Colin Farrell, Vince Vaughn, Rachel McAdams, Taylor Kitsch, Kelly Reilly, James Frain, Abigail Spencer, Timothy V. Murphy

A murdered body shows in a park. Three detectives from different departments must team up to solve the crime.

My Take:
All I can really say is that I expected way more. It's not so I am disappointed with the story as it entails emotionally damaged detectives, rampant corruption, an underground sex cult, and a mobster trying to cut out his piece; but more in lack of depth behind it all. Everything felt rushed with no real layers to the crimes. The cast is good and fun to watch many going against their normal roles. Not to mention the series just oozes with sleaze (in a good way). Again, I just expected much more out the series.

Rating: In the middle
