Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
The Ring Two
The dead don't sleep.
A female journalist (Naomi Watts) must prevent evil Samara from taking possession of her son's (David Dorfman) soul.
Huge mistake going forward with this film without Director Gore Verbinski! The film was no where near as Ominous or as Suspenseful as the original!
It had a few good moments but more times than not it felt bogged down and uninspired!
I particularly enjoyed the projectile deer scene!
Well, this series sure took a weird turn. The Japanese sequel was a mess for sure. This one less so, but I can't say it's much better either. Instead of establishing the story it wants to tell, The Ring Two just jumps to conclusions, causing its characters to base their actions mostly on weird assumptions and stupid contrivances. I sort of appreciated the underlying story and it's not completely without moments, but it lacked some serious coherence and sense of direction.
I also wouldn't call it a horror movie really. It's more like a watery domestic abuse mommy issues urban fantasy.
Basically, if you're dead just get over it.
The Ring Two; The Ring 2: Ring Harder; Ring Hard with a Ringeance; Ring of the Rings: Return of the Ring; Toy StoRing 2; The Empire Rings Back; Ringturn of the Jedi; HarRing Potter and the Ringlosipher's Ring; HarRing Ringer and the Ring of Secrets; HarRing Ring and the Ringoner of Ringzkaban; Ringy Ringer and Ringer of the Ringring
This film is shit. Total lack of any subtlety, horrible dialogue and piss poor CGI. It just went on for an eternity seemingly; after 30 mins I was completely sick of it and just waited and waited for it to end.
Don't watch it.
the abandonment of technology makes sense here but without the tape there's no thread to pull on, no pattern, no ring. what's left is just a standard ghost possession movie, although admirably a bafflingly goofy, nonsensical one. even though this features the same cast and follows the storyline from THE RING, this feels exactly like one of those fake knockoff Italian sequels, probably because of and not despite Nakata's presence (this cribs heavily from DARK WATER; his waterlogged haunted house tricks feel totally played out and formally he's no match for Verbinski). which is not to say i wouldn't be totally down for Umberto Lenzi's GHOST TAPE.
This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.
First time watch and I really expected this to be pretty bad. Partly because I didn't even know it existed a few weeks back. It's not as brilliant as the first one, delving into Samaras' backstory isn't quite as interesting as the mystery around the tape in the first movie. It's not as nice visually either, it would have been interesting to see what Verbinski might have done with it. One negative though, is that there are no clear "rules" or boundaries of what Samara can do or what can happen.
Naomi Watts is back again and she is great as usual. She didn't get to pull anything out of her throat this time though, which is a shame. It…
I like The Ring a lot, and this follow-up is not merely a case of not measuring up. It actually detracts from the original by ruining the Samara character. If you've seen The Ring and want more, I'd recommend skipping this and seeing the Japanese prequel Ring 0 instead.
A decent sequel but nothing too special.
69% out of 100%
Continues the story plot of The Ring....not very scary but has a few jumps
Everything the first one did well, this one doesn't do, at all.
Six months after the incidents involving the lethal videotape, new clues prove that there is a new evil lurking in the darkness.
By far not as good as the first remake and with at least one ridiculous scene of a herd of stags(!) attacking a car.
surprisingly dense atmosphere, expectation taken into account, it was an enjoyable watch
How can Dreamworks go from The Ring (a very creepy and unnerving film) to The Ring Two (a complete failure on every level) without even blinking? It's astounding how bad this movie is compared to the Japanese version, or a matter of fact, any other Ring-related movie. Even though Naomi Watts and David Dorfman return from the original film, they end up trapped in a flick featuring a boring script and uninspired directing from Hideo Nakata, who should know better. After all, he himself directed Ringu 1 & 2.
It's shocking how the quality has dropped in his translation to American horror movies. They couldn't even get the same girl back to play the evil Samara, so Kelly Stables has replaced…
My review -- this film is now on DVD and I could not find any budget margin but I could find box office takings of roughly $160 million but because of the technology used I would feel comfortable suggesting maybe $60 million for the budget. The storyline/contents well my readers this installment is very much a continuation of the previous installment so this film feels like a cliché of revenge. I don't know what I am going to say about this film really, because being unbiased yet a little bit honest I found this project boring in the sense that everything feels incredibly similar and the tempo wasn't exactly quick and easy watching in fact everything feels stretched. I did…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
Contains every horror film made that is not lost and is found on the letterboxd database.
If there is any…
