The Ring Ring
Well, seeming how people in the UK have to wait 5 MONTHS before they can see the remake, couldnt somebody get some sort of bootleg from the US, and start a tape trading 'ring' in the UK of it?

Before you die, you see...The Ring.

Re: The Ring Ring
Given the theme it would be quite appropriate to see a less than pristine, scratchy old bootleg of The Ring. If there are any psychics here at Ringworld, perhaps they could nensha it to you.

5 months, eh? Damn, that must be torture for uK ringworms;)
I hope it comes out sooner in Asia!

Personally I think it's well worth the wait to see in a theater IMHO, but there was a thread posted earlier about someone who had made a VCD and were selling it online.

I hear ya, I live in Oz, and I bet we won't be getting it here until the UK does...probably after even :( Oh well, something to look forward to I guess.

The only VCD I've seen of it is just plain bad... bad codec, bad image quality, really dark and fuzzy. When I was grabbing it I snuck a peek at the middle of it to verify that it was the movie (lots of jokesters think it's funny to offer up a popular movie title online, then you download it and it turns out to be porn)... and I thought I'd downloaded some old 70's movie (grainy, dark, muffled audio) until I noticed Naomi Watts in the well.

Re: The Ring Ring
I think people should see the original first... I do that with almost any remake (Cape Fear, 12 Monkeys, etc). It helps you appreciate remakes more.

Speaking of 12 Monkeys, anyone ever seen La Jettee (the pseudofilm 12M was based on)? It was interesting, more of an art piece than a movie. I don't think it really rated any entertainment value, but it was still... well... tasteful.

I'll laugh my a*s off if they anounce a remake of Tetsuo! :)

And yeah I'd prefer the first time I see Gaijringu to be in the cinema (or even better for them to show the original!! won't hold my breath tho!) :(

5 months....5 whole months...

This is bloody depressing. But hell - gives me time to "convert" one of my sister's barbie dolls into a Sadako doll to take with me! ^-^

5 months? you could get a Barbie imported from Greece "modify" it, send it to Japan to get it approved by the Sadako Toy Company (TM) have 30,000,000 made, ship one back to wherever you live and still have time to eat a biccy or 2 befoe cinema time!!

I just saw it. But it will take 5 months for me to figure out the ending.
