My Thoughts on True Blood Season 7 Episode 2

  My first thought of the night: what the hell is going on? Last we saw Jason he was banging Violet, and last we saw Eric, he was tanning on a mountain. Then they are in a room together about to get it on!!! Oh True Blood you are wasting no time messing with me again! I will miss you messing with me like that! So here are my thoughts on the rest of episode 2, "I Found You."
  People of Bon Temps: Jason might have gone a little crazy with his dream, but the people of Bon Temps have gone nuts. They are in full angry mob mode, and nothing good will come of that. They are more likely to kill each other than the vampires.
  Miss Fortenberry: She's had her moments over the seasons, but I finally think it's time for her to die!
  Tara's mom: Add her name to the must die list as well. Talking about dark places when she's the one high on V. Anyone else think she might have killed Tara?
  Lafayette: Maybe he should be the one to kill her. It would give him some purpose this season. It doesn't seem like he's served much of a purpose for a while now.
  Betty: She almost served a purpose until she became a pile of mush in Arlene's lap.
  Arlene: What a survivor… 4 husbands, a serial killer, and poor suicidal Terry! She's so dramatic you’ve got to love it! I hope she continues to survive!
  Holly: So how much longer before she does some witch magic?
  Adilyn: Good to see her use her magic blast like Sookie. She definitely has a heart like her father. Too bad it was no match for the village idiots!
  Jessica: She's also grown a heart, as she continues to want to protect Adilyn. I felt bad that she was helpless in the attic. Just wait until sunset!
  Saint Alice: The sun has already set on this dead zone!
  Andy: If Saint Alice only had cops like Andy and Jason to brighten their days. It was good to see them back to providing some light humor. Andy also provided us with my favorite line of the night when he said, "If Jason's pizza forensics are to be trusted, yea." Hopefully they have some more good ones before it's over.
  Jason: After that dream he may never sleep again. Maybe he can use that Starbucks card for some coffee to stay awake!
  Sam: Not going to be re-elected!
  Alcide: So far so good with screen time even though you're not saying much. However, you might have plenty to say when you find out where Sookie has gone.
  Sookie: It was a really weird scene listening to her read that girl's journal. I can't believe the same thing happened to her as it did Sookie, and Sookie just happened to find her journal. Can we find better reasons to have flashbacks? And here we go with Bill again!
  Bill: Don't do it! Whatever Sookie wants just say no! It's not going to end well!
  Pam: Nice job finding Eric, but like just like her that is not what we wanted to find!
  Eric: Ahhhh!!! I can't believe he's not going make it. How could he be so reckless, and stupid? We might not even get one more Bill vs. Eric moment now!
  While I look forward to watching some people get what they deserve, it's depressing thinking about what's to come for others. Hell, there might not even be a town left in the end. Maybe I should have some hope! Just a little! I think I’ll just prepare for the worse until next week!

The outback once more becomes a place of horror as another unwitting tourist becomes the prey for crazed, serial-killing pig-hunter Mick Taylor.

Starring: John Jarratt, Ryan Corr, and Shannon Ashlyn

Directed by: Greg Mclean

Written by: Greg Mclean, and Aaron Sterns

  Is it wrong to like a deranged serial killer so much? Obviously many horror fans like Freddy, Jason, and Michael, but besides their beginnings they're far from real. Mick Taylor (John Jarratt) seems to be as real as it gets. He's not the undead, possessed, back from the other side, or extraterrestrial. Mick is simply a human, who's funny, quick-witted, and as dangerous as can be. He also has a terrific laugh that never gets old.
  And how can the audience not love him when it gets to spend so much time with him in this sequel? "Wolf Creek" spends plenty of time on the story of the eventual victims. It builds to the standard point of making the audience care for the victims as Mick hunts them down. "Wolf Creek 2" goes in the opposite direction, as there's more screen time for Mick. The audience doesn't have to wait for a surprise appearance from Mick, as he's up to his old tricks from the beginning. There is a quick set up on a couple traveling in the outback, but not enough for the audience to truly be upset about what's going to happen to them.
  When Mick picks his next target, again there is little time to build up any emotions for them. The audience may want them to get away, but it won't be because they develop a soft spot for them based on their past, or future. In an interesting twist, the audience really gets to know the most about them when they spend some quality time with Mick. It quickly becomes a classic scene in this franchise's short history. Oh, and shame on those who are rooting against Mick!
  Audiences still might not know much about Mick by the end of this movie, but one of the most important things to remember is that he's a pig-hunter. What's important about that is how he treats his human victims the same as he would a pig, even referring to them as pigs. Mick relentlessly tracks them down, and dishes out some serious punishment. He spills plenty of blood either blowing away his victims with his on target shooting, or chopping them up with the closest sharp object. And in another classic scene, he brings a whole new meaning to “road kill!”
  "Wolf Creek" was a pleasant surprise for many horror fans including myself. Some fans might be worried if "Wolf Creek 2" could conjure up the same magic after so much time between movies. Well, as you might be able to guess by now, there's nothing to worry about. John Jarrett puts on another awesome performance, as he gets audiences to fall in love with Mick Taylor all over again. Mick has everything he needs to be that crazy and deadly serial killer horror fans want to see. With that, I give this movie 3.5 pools of blood!

My Thoughts on True Blood Season 7 Episode 1

  I thought long and hard about writing about this season because I still can't believe this is the end of the road. However, it has been something I've done for several seasons now so why not go out along with them. Each year I've tried to change it up, not with much success, but definitely will for this season. So prepare for the change, here are my thoughts on episode 1, "Jesus Gonna Be Here."
  Tara: Well, we've seen her almost die before, but it looks like it's for real this time. I really enjoyed her time as a vamp with Pam, and was hoping for a little more of that. She's been such a troubled character that it might be for the better that she's gone. R.I.P.!
  Tara's mom: I've never liked her, and I'm not thrilled Tara went out trying to save her. Yes, that's her mom, but we all know their history. Tara saved the wrong person.
  Lafayette: Not a huge star in this episode, but I have to mention him because he lost Tara as well. I could definitely feel sorry for him, but he didn't seem too upset. I guess if you look at it like he did, she's in a better place.
  Jessica: Another who took Tara's death hard. She didn't have much time to think about it because Adilyn was being threatened. It's good to see Jessica do the right, and responsible thing for once. Never thought she would bite her. Andy might get a surprise in the morning!
  Adilyn: Close the window already!!!
  Andy: A much more serious Andy now! I miss the funny Andy, but I guess there is nothing to laugh about after losing several daughters, and having your girlfriend kidnapped. Glad he saved Bill, but more interesting was how he put Bill in his place.
  Bill: Well Bill, that was another bad idea. You basically served up the town to those sick vamps. I'm not sure how he is going to play hero this time. 
  Pam: She has become one of my favorites so I'm glad she's still alive and running her mouth. That's right, she won for my favorite line of the night when she said, "Your god and my god can go to a motel and have a circle jerk for all I care. I'll be in hell having a three way with the devil." You knew it had to be her, or Jason. Figures she's looking for Eric, but it doesn't look like she's close.
  Eric: MIA!!!
  Jason: Again not too much humor in this episode, so we didn't get the typical Jason. That is until he bent Violet over the hood of the cop car! Very Jason!
  Violet: Scored!!!
  Holly: Kidnapped but could be worse off.
  Arlene: Quite the screamer, and crier. Thinking she might die before the season ends.
  Sam: Mr. Mayor takes part of the blame with Bill. I will give them credit for creating a good opening scene though. Oh and seriously, you couldn't change into something faster than a dog to chase after the kidnapped people!
  Alcide: Starting off the season in more than one scene! Great job! Still eye candy, but whatever. At least he's with Sookie now! The question is will he be with her in the end?
  Sookie: Poor Sookie having to hear that from everyone. I guess they have a point, but she belongs there. She's not the one who created the sick vamps anyway! She seems ready to fight for the town, but how much fight does the town have left? Didn't think we would see her naked again, but I guess if Jason's going do it so will she!
  In the end, it was a solid start to the season. The most shocking thing happening early, with the rest of the episode setting up things to come. It looks like the sick vamps, along with the lack of clean humans to drink from, are going to make it hard for the vamps to survive. It will be interesting to see who is left standing! Welcome back, and I'll you next week!
