I saw it, some questions and comments
I saw it 2 times this weekend here in Mexico.

The first time with some friends, they all love the movie, and found it scary, I didn't find it that scary, actually I can't think about a movie that really scared me.

Surprisingly all of my friends understand it very well, they came with very great conclusions, I didn't find a plot hole, and I really understand it.

They're pretty cool shots, the film is done beautifully.

I love Naomi Watts, she's hot, her acting too.

The second time was with 2 of my brothers (kids) and my mom, they didn't find it scary, but they really liked it.

The 2 times I went to see it, the theater was with like 30 people :( , I saw it in the morning so probably that's the reason.

The critics opinion here was regular, some people liked it some didn't, they all complain about plot holes and the ending.

Someone said that it was a disappointment because everyone wanted to see Naomi next role since Mulholland Drive and that it didn't living up the hype.

Anyway I really doubt the movie will make tons of money here but who knows, I really enjoy it.

I also saw the original version in DIVX, they're pretty similar, but I liked The Ring better probably because I saw it first.

Also, the samara's song from the movie is different from the one from the cursed video I have downloaded, thanks to the Spanish subtitles what she says is:

'The World Is Spining'
'When it stops'
'Its just beginning'

That song is played in a lot of scenes in the movie but in instrumental mode.

I was bothered because at the start of the movie the distributor here added: 'EL ARO' (the movie title here) in big letters, I understand that in the American version it doesn't says 'The Ring' right?

Well anyway thanks for reading, this are my comments.

Re: I saw it, some questions and comments
Glad you enjoyed it. And thanks for the great picture!

And yes, you're right...there are no titles (that say "The Ring" or otherwise) at the beginning of the film as seen in America.

Alex:Well, I found this really disturbing video tape, and I decided to alter it some. It's really pretty now!

Re: I saw it, some questions and comments
You re welcome ;)

Ohh I forgot, my brothers (10 and 13 years old) keep asking questions about it, they said the film is very very good, I found that funny.

Now that I remember when Rachel and Noah are in the cabin, he throws some balls, and the balls concentrate in one single point (the well under the floor), why all the balls remain there?

Also the significance of the fly could posibly be that when samara make the video in the cabin, the fly suddenly was at the tv screen?

Thanks ;)

"...balls concentrate in one single point..."

Probably because of the moist air from the well, the floor boards were soggy and sagging down in that area. Remember how mouldy it looked when they removed the carpet?. It seems to me that the marbles all came to rest in the center of the depression.

Re: I saw it, some questions and comments
And, even if it weren't a physical depression causing it, there could be a supernatural explanation anyway--some unknown force pulling the marbles toward the well.

Hey Tocayo
Wazzup, I'm also from Mexico and as I said here: pub70.ezboard.com/ftherin...81&stop=84

that freakin' movie did affect my mental sanity for 2 days after having watched it. The thing that freaked me out the most was the TV reflecting my entire just before I went to sleep, like aroung 2 am, and having a mirror next to me, like 8 feet away. But thankfully I've got over it already. Tho' I still look back when I go to the bathroom at midnight.
That samara will always remain in my brain
So will Katie!!8) (before she died of course|I ).That fetal position she had and the moving head after they found her.....damn........*chills*

Re:Great Pics
Thanks for those pics. I wonder if there is some digital manipulation in the arms. There are so long and lanky, even longer than an adult. It definitely gives a more sinister effect.
