whats with you ppl?

the Ring wasnt scary. I dont know what is with everyone who thought it was, but i was bored through most of the movie, definatly the scariest scene ever is the silence of the lambs nightvision

You have to keep in mind, most of "The Ring" votes are probably coming from kids who haven't seen the majority of the other options available.

RE: RE: whats with you ppl?

Yeah, the Ring wasn't that scary. I thought it was a good movie, but the female lead annoyed me so much I was hoping she'd die by the end of the film. I mean, her kid calls her by her first name all film instead of mom because she's an absentee parent. She leaves the copy on the floor so he can watch it for christ sakes! Then she has the chance to end the cycle by sacrificing her child but she keeps the evil going. No telling who he'll show the tape to; probably her ex's assistant she didn't like. All movie she bungled things with her "I'm hot, so give me my way" attitude. And when a horse starts going ape **** the closer you get to it, move the hell away. Damn, I could go on and on here, as I watched this movie a second time w/ a group of friends and we spent the entire time picking apart her character. She is responcible for the majority of the hardships in the film. If she would have stopped and listened to the people around her, things wouldn't have been as harsh.

RE: whats with you ppl?

Interesting points J-Town...now to over-analyze your over-analysis for a moment...isn't the filmmaker (and you for that matter) really commenting on single mothers in general? If you believe popular psychology the horror film is really just a glimpse at the fears of the society who creates it. Typically a conservative glimpse at what frightens us...single mothers! And not just any old single mother, but the type who decides to ditch the dad because she can do it on her own.

Just like those "I Was A Teenage Werewolf" movies from the late fifties when parents were afraid their teens were too growing up too fast...or the big bug movies that came out after nuclear weapons/power came into play. If this stuff interests you check out Danse Macabre by Stephen King a fun look at society and horror movies...written in the early 80's.

...I'll shut up now. :)

RE: whats with you ppl?

yaya movies are just over-blown fears of our society, and kids are more immune to being scared now. if you relaly think about it it must be damn near impossible to make a good scary movie now... i think the only reason people thought the ring was scary is because all the cool kids with easy lives were freaked out, and everyone jstu agreed... the first time i watched the ring i had a friend of a friend sitting next to me cracking up during the entire movie...it's har dto be scared when danny's over there rolling out of the lawn chair when all the water turns red after the horse jumps off the boat

RE: whats with you ppl?

Ok...J-Town. I can answer ONE of your "odd points" of the Ring. The kid didn't give it to her ex's assistant or anything. He actually put the copy he made into a blank tape case, and slipped it inconspicuously onto the shelf at a video store.

I only know this because I'm one of those freaks that has to watch all the extra crap they fill DVD's with. You know, make sure I get my $3.99 rental fee's worth. There's this short, 10 minute or so, film of various scenes that I presume didn't make the movies final edit. But watching this little thing confused the hell out of me. It had scenes that simply didn't fit the movie at all & kind of showed how many rewrites they did. All in all, The Ring was a worthwhile rental to see once. But now I'd like to see "Ringu" the original version that inspired "The Ring" that was made in Japan or something like that.

RE: RE: whats with you ppl?

I, for one, was scared by this movie, and I'm 27. But I like scary movies and just like to get into being scared. As for all the analysis, it's just a stupid movie. It's not a work of art, like a novel by Virginia Woolf is. I say just watch the movie to watch it and like the story/acting or don't like it, but there's no need to analyze or question it.

Denver I agree with you completely, but some movies BEG for the critique. Did anyone see Charlie's Angels 2 yet? My god that movie was a total piece of crap! I'm all for escapism in movies, just for entertaiment value..... it doesn't have to be realistic (ie Pirates of the Caribean was AWESOME) but that movie was just TOO much. I wanted a refund

RE: whats with you ppl?

well i suppose since in 14 that i could be one of those kids that havent seen most of the scary movies out there and dont know what im talking about. but i have seen enough to know that first of all the ring was freak and gross(not really scary) (for me at least) until the girl crawled out of the tv, that was completely unrealistic and made the movie completely suck.it made me not afraid even the least bit at all

Charlie's Angles 2: it can't be a soft core porn without the porn part. It's just a piece of crap.
