VERDICT – 0/5

 

 
PROS –
1) Mirari: the horrors of plastic surgery.

 

 
CONS –
1) 5 rejected Black Mirror stories weaved around a haunted movie theater owned by The Projectionist (Mickey Rourke). Tediously formulaic anthology movie with a format very similar to Tales from the Crypt (1972).

MUSIC – 1
CULT – 1

 

VERDICT – 5/5

 
PROS –
1) A must watch detective crime thriller of epic proportion with 17 years of non-linear storyline. It’s HBO’s reply to Memories of Murder (2003).
2) Matthew McConaughey as Detective Cohle gave a great performance of a sociopathic cop.
3) Opening song: “Far from Any Road”
4) Unapologetically good ol’ misogynist show with a high level of testosterone.
5) The climactic fulfilling scene between Rust & Marty

 

CONS –
N/A
