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.
Hideo Nakata, the man behind 'Kaidan, 2007' and the original Japanese 'Ringu 1998, seems lost. As soon as he crosses borders in to Hollywood, he is pushed down a well, just like Samara Morgan (the hair-er, the hair-er) was, back in '98; trying to claw her way back up.
The film shows us exquisite shots of the Japanese flavour. Then suddenly the mood changes and it seems Wes Craven jumps in for a few minutes to open the film for us.
'I played it...'
*The phone rings*
'The Ring Two' does not even come close to its predecessors. With a lukewarm plot and a kid who grew up into Mathieu Amalric (The Bond Villain who is crazy for oil…
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.
La primera era todo un ejemplo de cómo hacer un buen remake, esta es todo un ejemplo de cómo hacer una mala secuela.
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.

I'm not your fucking mommy!
Basically, this is a huge disappointment. After the fantastic first film, and its open ending, I was expecting at least a decent sequel. But after it was released, and I caught wind of the terrible WOM, I decided to wait to watch it. And it took me over a year to get around to it. Well, I'm glad I didn't waste my money. Pretty much, I didn't like it.
That's not to say the film is a complete waste. There are some pretty cool shots here (the scene in the bathroom with all the water, and also when Samara is creepily climbing up the well) and Naomi Watts is pretty good, as always. Her final line is the best of…
Let's see some more of Samara Morgan. Some plot holes, and additions to the original video, and some added rules... It feels like this was the sequel to make more money, rather than to continue the storyline.
Couldn't even finish it. Garbage.
MUY prescindible. El principio es "ey, mirad, no estamos cargando todo lo bueno de la primera". El nudo es "vamos a poner al Mentalista a hablar con el niño éste". Y el final es un coñazo. ¡Un coñazo! ¡El final!
Con decir que lo mejor de la peli es el anuncio de Paramount, lo digo todo.
I simply love this movie. It has the psychology & logic and lacks the bloods and other gross things from what one would usually name a "horror". Simply perfect.
I can't focus on the movie if Naomi Watts is the main character, sorry. All I want to do is tap dat ass.
Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
I've always been interested in what other people are seeing and watching, and naturally, I love looking at Weekend Box…
