    The only two redeeming things in that movie is the editing on the video sequence and what happens right after the girl pops out of the TV. Everything else is pretty pants.

    No, make that three things... I enjoyed how they inserted quick one-frame shots of the Ring itself into the editing of the movie... for example, there's one shot where the light from a lighthouse (she's about to go into the old man's house) turns into the Ring for a single frame. i thought that was ill. Beer,

    when are they gonna learn in horror movies to not show the scary person they are elusive with throughout the entire movie...it ruines mystice, your imagination will always make it looks worse and hollywood will always make it look corny

    to the average movie goers this movie may seem mediocre or average. But in reality there is a lot going on..... many hidden messages in regard to society and the media and of course urban legend. the visuals are amazing and are far from being Hollywood bs. There is a lot of info that is not spoon feed to the audience, which makes you have to figure out a bunch of blank spaces in the plot.........if you didn't get it, see it again.
    this movie is a two thumbs up.

    I like the whole artsy diss on the media. don't be offended by my scarcasm king, I get board at work.
    I just think the whole gay philosophy relates to the spread of graff as well. just my opinion.

    I saw the Japanese version, and lemme tell you that film left me feeling minorly uncomfortable. This is coming from someone who watched the Exorcist without being scared. I dunno about the American version, but the Japanese version is just plain... not scary, but weird in the way that almost chills you to the bone. Ugh. I've heard that the American version doesn't even come close to the Japanese one, which is a shame, because I'd love to see all the people who said that the American one is scary watching the Japanese one and shitting their pants :D
