Ring Around the Rosie (2006)
Could have been better
Okay, I watched this movie with my sister on Sunday thinking it would be a good horror movie from what we saw on the trailer (I think it was from BloodRayne, I can't remember), so we rented it and watched it. If you are looking for a horror movie, pass this one by. It is not a horror movie, it's more of a suspense and (I'm adding my own genre) confusion.
This movie features Tom Sizemore as Pierce who is a Handiman at Gina Philips's late grandmother's property. He took care of the grandmother's house, the land, and the horses. He lives right next to the horse corral.
Karin (Gina) has to go to her grandmother's house to go through the items. She brings along her boyfriend, Jeff (Randall Batinkoff), who later leaves Gina alone at the house while he goes back to work.
Karin starts reliving her past in the house, which isn't good. There is a closet that she can't go near from something that happened in her past. Plus Pierce is kind of creeping Karin out by showing up at the weirdest moments, like when she is falling from her window and he catches her.
Karin gets so freaked out that she calls up her sister, Wendy (Jenny Mollen), to stay with her. Wendy meets Pierce and they get along, they are acting like old friends, dancing around, Pierce shows her how to chop wood too.
Then it starts getting weird. Karin starts having 'dreams' that Wendy disappeared, and she keeps seeing her younger self and Wendy's younger self having fights, then one of them goes into the closet.
You find out a little information about Pierce when he's alone with Karin in the closet (making out in the closet!) hiding from the bad thing. Also he kidnaps Wendy and takes her back to his place...and...Nothing happens.
Anyways, it's a good movie, I admit, but it's not THAT good. It confuses the heck out of you. More then half the movie is dream sequences from Karin, so you're not sure if it's real or if it's a dream. Unlike some other movies, it does tie up the movie, it answer some questions, SOME being the key word. You still are asking yourself "Wait, what?" and "What happened?" or "What did happen to Wendy then?" "What did Pierce have to do with it?" "Did Pierce kill younger Wendy?" "Where did Pierce go?"
So I give it 2 out of 5 stars. And the rating is R for violence/terror. Although, if you want the truth, it has some sex scenes, you don't see anything (nudity wise) but even a cat would know what they were doing. There are two scenes like that, both between Karin and Jeff (her boyfriend).
So, if you want to give it a shot, so be it. I watched it cause it looked scary also it had Tom Sizemore in it (I like him, go away), but I was a bit disappointed in it. It could have been way better if they just answered the questions or just reassured you of what you thought had happened (which I think what I'm thinking is true...). And if there wasn't a lot of dream sequences in it.
Wolf's Rain (2003)
Humans thought the wolves died off two centuries ago. But some survivors lurk among the humans by mentally cloaking their animal bodies. One of these wolves, the white wolf, Kiba, scours the land for the scent of the Lunar Flower that will lead them to Paradise. This bleak post-apocalyptic story will entrance you, make you laugh, make you grin like and idiot, and will make you cry. There are 30 total episodes, most of them are a must see. There are some episodes that just recap what has happened. The story, about four wolves, Kiba, Tsume, Hige and Toboe try to find the Flower Maiden, Cheza. The Flower Maiden along with the wolves will be the one to open up Paradise, meant for the wolves. And as in every story, there is a bad person, Darcia, a Noble. The Nobles created Paradise, and Darcia wants Cheza to help him to save his love, Harmonia, who has a disease that can be cured with Paradise. The ending is a tear-jerker, if you must know the truth. You get so attached to the wolves, you love them. If you loved Cowboy Bebop, you will love Wolf's Rain. Made by the same creators, Wolf's Rain is darker, but still entrances the viewer.
