*Movie Review (viewed Feb. 6th)
Can you believe, it's been 15 years since The Ring released? It caused hearts to stop, screams to fall from the lips of both women AND men, and was a mega hit at the box office. The Ring: Two was okay, but didn't hit the world with as much bang for the storyline. There were only so many instances of horrid abuse to little Samara, the one who plagued people with nightmarish visions and painful tortures to the body and soul. Yet, February 3rd, viewers were given another life of the never-ending unlike of Samara Morgan. This time, it went further than the little girl and her mother. But was it enough to make for a good movie?
We were left with Samara being... destroyed (?) at the end of the first movie. Supposedly she drowned, as she should have before this all began, but it didn't take again! She was still in action as the third movie, Rings kicked off!
But in this movie, they handle things differently. They take on a scientific perspective - which was quite original and pulled me in. Problem is, it fizzled into predictability and disappointment. I went in to the theater with an open mind, but left disappointed. I felt I'd truly lost 117 minutes of my life. The movie got lost somewhere and I'm not sure I even tried to figure out where it vanished.
Samara had gone from secret to urban legend, to scientific theory. They were trying to save lives by putting lives on the line. A constant ring of horror that made me thing it was going to conclude with an ending as huge as the one paranormal movie The Resurrectionist. Now that movie had an ending! But sadly, Rings didn't and I was reminded why I only purchased the first movie in this collection.
I won't tell what happened, because I don't believe in SPOILERS, but if you'd like to leave a comment or two on your thoughts, I'd love to hear them. I want someone to gab with about it.
