Sorry, this movie sucks
The storyline feels a little thin and moth-eaten in parts but this sequel is plenty of fun.
It is a whirlwind of delight --- attractive actors, stunning couture, spectacular sets and outrageous parties. It's a feast for the eyes. But what really makes this dramedy work is the acting.
If you are looking for series with fun and exciting sci-fi special effects and thrilling episodes with loads of action and drama then this series is not for you. This series could be described as a copy of the old series 'Murder, She Wrote' but with a "supernatural" being as the criminal. And by "supernatural" I mean that the person who did the crime usually did not know about the "power" they had and it was like: 'Oh, did I do that... Sorry'. I have watched six episodes now and I'm bored.. to calm and non exiting for me. I don't know how good the special effects is in this series since I have not seen any yet... The actors and script seems fine and there is an interesting backstory too but you only get hints of it now and then and not in every episode. In fact I stayed with the series for six episodes due to I wanted to know more about the backstory but I don't know if we ever will get the answers to the questions the main character have.
Haven breathes new life into the fantasy genre with its unique blend of investigative/cop drama, mystery/suspense, and sometimes even a touch of horror. Being inspired by Stephen King novel, this TV show lives up to the expectations associated with that description. Each "problem of the week" is always new and unique, the show never falls into being predictable on that front. Lead actors are all average at the very least and some play into their roles excellently, most notably Emily Rose and Eric Balfour. The overall plot arc is not only amazingly unique it is also very engaging. The characters, their relationships, and their overall development are interesting and add to the story without overwhelming it. This show also does not lack for comic relief, banter between characters is quick witted and funny without trying too hard, the often sarcastic under tones to the dialogue in the show seems to come naturally to the cast. The filming in the show is nice, the scenes are beautiful (filmed in Nova Scotia) and there are almost always gorgeous panoramic shots of the unique coast line and brightly colored little town) in every episode. I knocked off a star for some poorly written dialogue (especially in seasons one and two) and some bad/cheesy acting from some of the minor characters (usually single episode characters and very minor background characters). If you enjoy mystery/suspense/thriller type TV shows like Lost, Orphan Black, X-Files, or Fringe or you like supernatural/fantasy TV shows like Hemlock Grove, Supernatural, or Buffy the Vampire Slayer you'll probably enjoy this. Some people who enjoy cop dramas might like this as well, though this definitely does lean toward the supernatural/fantasy end of things it does involve a lot of problem solving via examination of crime scene evidence etc.
Haven has always been the type of show that was pretty good but it never really reached its full potential. The first three seasons defined the show well but once the fourth started everything turned a little sour and it lost the spark it once had.As a general concept Haven is new and fresh with a nice mystery thriller tone and a supernatural edge. It centres around a town that experiences "troubles" which may seem a little lame or strange but at least initially it worked. Each episode was different and focused on a new trouble. The overarching storyline was also intriguing but unfortunately since they changed the central characters I have lost interest.Overall the show started good but has gone downhill. The new direction the show is taking just isn't working for me but I guess it's still alright. Haven will probably always be a good but mediocre show. Watchable but nothing special.
The end of Mara? Mommie's wrong. More the combo of the two, with Audrey dominant. It's still Mud, hence, Mudrey.And the lazy writing? Duke gets to make out with Mara so those who thought Duke should have as much chance as Nathan, are assuaged? Cheap shot.And what is with the posting of new episodes with No 14 No 16 and No's 20-25 missing, with premature show dates for the rest? I don't think we'll see another episode until Sept 2015, like always. This scheduling nutsiness continues from Hulu to IMDb.It's getting weirder, than the plots, and the weird plots, that's a good thing.
