    have you guys seen The Ring yet? my god, i can't believe the scariest movie i've ever seen was rated PG-13. people were gasping and jumping in the theater, it was pretty amazing.

    If you've seen it, don't post spoilers...

    I loved the subliminal rings throughout the movie... the one in the corner that kept getting bigger and bigger...

    all i can say is... damn.

    :)

    It's actually based on the Japanese movie 'Ring', which was based on a best-seller novel by some guy. Anyways, I've seen the Japanese one.. and it is THE scariest movie I have seen in my whole life. And believe me, if you think this Hollywood version was scary, just watch the Japanese version. For some reason Japanese horror has a touch to it which Hollywood movies don't have... believe me, if you watch it it will freak you out at least twice as much as the Hollywood one did.

    I would have to guess that you have to go to a small local movie store that has wierd movies. Or being a kung fu freak I would have to recommend HKflix.com, but they have a more 'action-oriented' selection.

    Yeah, I actually checked them out earlier. They do have the original trilogy but it's all PAL format DVD's...... Maybe I should finally invest in a non region dvd player.... Or switch back to OS 9 and use the region changing capabilities of those DVD programs....

    hmmm.....decisions....decisions....

    I see you are interested in shaolin... sort of :D... I recommend getting one of their 10 movie packs for $15. They aren't the best movies or anything, but they are pretty good at a really good price.

    I was just passing by this thread again, and a thought popped into my head. What if a week after this movie came out millions of people started dying... THat would be very odd.

    Before you die you see the ring............

    I just use them when I'm looking for a movie that hasn't reached U.S. shores. I got Crouching Tiger when it was still in the theatres, how great was that.....

    Back to the subject: One of my friends went to see The Ring last night, I called him up exactly when the movie ended and I said, "Seven Days....." he's supposedly all freaked out now.....

    i saw the ring friday night, and parts of it scared the crap out of me. like the girl in the closet, and boyfriend's appartment scene. really good aspects, but it had its flaws

    dude, call me dyslexic, but every time I see your handle I read "Iron Mongoose", which sounds really cool in a 1970's prog-rock kind of way. had to let you know.

    sorry for the off-topic post:eek:
