jan 1 – ringu

like sarah, i watch a lot of movies. now that i’m not hell bent on being hyperproductive all the time, i watch a whole lotta movies. perhaps more than i should admit to publicly. but this year i think i will take the suggestion i made to her last year, and document them in my blog. at least, until it becomes too embarassing and i no longer wish to expose my ridiculous media consumption.

so. january 1st. ‘ringu’, the japanese horror movie that was remade by hollywood and called by them ‘the ring’. i found ‘the ring’ quite horrifying but ‘ringu’ less so, possibly because of the environment and company in which i watched it; possibly because i’m more of a sucker for hollywood special effects. i actually found the american story a little richer and more surprising, but then it was completely new to me.
