Rings (2017): Stick to the Original

A current college student, Nick founded MovieBabble in October of 2016 in order to grow his own movie knowledge as well as share his own thoughts with others in a streamlined fashion. As MovieBabble continues to grow, Nick hopes to one day become a reputable critic that many turn to first for a quality movie review.

  1. I got dumped right before I went in to see this movie. Cried so hard that I had to leave the theater (and not because the beginning was disappointing). Even though it’s rated pretty terribly, I’ll pry give it a shot again.

  2. Rings is on my top 10 most anticipated movies list solely for the first American movie, which I watched many years ago and still adore. Although I knew it wasn’t going to be a good movie, I hoped it would at least be better than The Ring Two. Personally, I think it managed that (very small!) feat, but then again, so many plot points of this movie recycled things from the original movie (people investigating the tape, going to the middle of nowhere for answers, finding out about Samara’s family, etc.) that likely I feel that way out of nostalgia. The characters were also bland and annoying. (College kids? Seriously?) Oh well. At least A Cure For Wellness is coming out this month.

    Ha, I was intending to watch it but I will just wait for it to come on TV then.

    WOW! I just looked at this thing on Rotten Tomatoes. 5%!!!!! That’s a real stinker. I’m taking your word for it and waiting until it hits Redbox or Netflix.

      I would say that %5 is a little misleading (not THAT misleading but still) in that it’s not epically bad. But there’s really nothing from a critics point of view to really warrant giving it a fresh rating. It’s just blah lol

    Hmm…pretty disappointed with this. The original Ring is one of my alltime favorite horror movies, and I agree that the remake was not bad. The trailer for this one looked rather promising, but after reading this, I will pass on going to the movie theatre for it. Will check it out when it gets a release on dvd 😊

    I haven’t seen Rings but I am with you in that being boring and adding nothing new are the worst things any story can do whether it is a movie, anime or book. I will watch and read terrible things all the way through before I’ll sit through something that is boring me.
    On that note, after reading this, I’ll definitely pass on picking this film up when it gets a DVD release. Thanks.
