The Ring (***)

Starring Naomi Watts, Martin Henderson, David Dorfman, Brian Cox, Jane Alexander, Lindsay Frost, Amber Tamblyn, and Rachael Bella In this remake of one of Japan’s biggest box office hits Ringu, Naomi Watts plays a journalist who discovers a mysterious videotape that is connected to several deaths.

I would have to say that the movie is creepy and not for the gullible, what really ruined for me was that I watched Scary Movie 3 before I watched the ring and the plots sort of mix. But I will talk about that on my review of Scary Movie 3.

The plot is solid and the scary parts were done at expected moments, but still strong. I think the film special effects were right on key and not overdone in any way. I think the movie is better watched at home in a rainy day than in a theater. Put this movie on your rental list for sure.
I did not get the chance to watch Ringu yet, but I think I will rent the movie one of this days… even though the movies share the same plot, I think the original might have some more to offer.

Scary Movie 3 (**)

Starring Anna Faris, Charlie Sheen, Regina Hall, Denise Richards, Jeremy Piven, Queen Latifah, Eddie Griffin, Anthony Anderson, and Simon Rex. The Scary Movie gang is back for the third installment in this spoof series. It is not a complete waste of time, but it brings me to a little rant. I think spoof movies should provide a list of movies that it will ruin. The movie has spoofs of not only scary movies but also other movies of the moment. It does totally ruin the Ring and Signs in my opinion.

The movie has some excellent moments and it is done very well like the previous two. Even though the Scream series references are pretty much gone from this one, it still has not lost its edge. There is no gore at all which I think is positive. I say go rented only after you have watched The Ring and Signs, both excellent movies.

Torque (*)

Starring Ice Cube, Martin Henderson, Monet Mazur, Matt Schulze, Jaime Pressly, Jay Hernandez, Will Yun Lee, and Justina Machado. I am not sure what this movie is supposed to portray because I am still scratching my head about it. I mean, the Reapers (Ice Cube’s) gang was a simple motorcycle club (because he would not deal drugs) yet they were armed to their teeth. The main character disappeared for 6 months, but you quite don’t understand why that period of time… he just needed a vacation in Asia I guess. The other supporting characters are just fluff.

Beyond that, the movie has motorcycles doing things that they are not meant to do. Most people do not know that there are several different types of motorcycles that have very specific purposes, and well, sportbikes or more commonly know crotch rockets well, cannot handle dessert riding… but this movie makes it seem easy. This movie as a biker really makes me long for biker boyz which is pretty scary. Stay away from this movie at all cost.

Bailar (To dance) is my passion and I cannot deny
Out all night dancing is where I want to be.

And since we’re all in a dancing kinda mood….here’s the rest. It’s a bit of “I say, you think,” but with a twist.

I’m going to say one word…and you list as many things as you want that come to mind when you see it.

Are you ready?

Are ya sure?

Here it is…..

DANCE
Is my life, cannot think of anything else that makes people smile as much as dancing. Dancing is in my blood, it is just what I love to do. I am a dancing fool… was this supposed to be a word list? I probably messed it up already didn’t I … lets give that a try

Salsa,
Merengue,
Bachata,
House,

So if you’re ready….get dancing..and remember to come back and comment when you’re done and let us know your mamboed. (I like mine Italiano style)

Big Monday Mambo Hugs from all of us crazies here at BDI….We loves ya…and we want to mambo with ya….so what are you waiting for?

Good Monday

Buenos Dias, I am in such a good mood this morning. We had terrible weather all weekend so seeying some sun sneak in between the clouds I guess makes me smile more than usual. I have mentioned it before that I love the sun, but I cannot say enough about what it can do for one’s mood. I love it.

This weekend was an excellent weekend, did not do much besides cleaning and relaxing but it was just what I needed. This morning I slept a little later than I usually do. I am a freak that has to wake up an hour early just to make sure I have time to relax in the morning and do not have to rush… but today I slept a little longer and I think that helped. Then I went to McD’s and got myself some coffee, I have not gotten coffee there in quite some time. I was pleasently surprise to taste actual decent coffee, out of McD’s.

Hopefully the Monday Mambo gets posted soon, if not everyone have a very sunny, happy week.
