Percy Jones (Bernie Mac) is taking no chances with his daughter Theresa's (Zoë Saldana) future. Even before he meets Simon Green, her latest boyfriend, Percy has him checked out. On paper, he passes with flying colors -- great job, good investments and a promising future. But there's one thing the credit report didn't tell him: Simon Green (Ashton Kutcher) is white and they’re hiding their engagement. This turns into a big frenzy that gets out of hand. Mac and Kutcher are surprisingly watchable in this remake.
The story picks up six months after the horrifying events that terrorized Rachel Keller and her son Aidan in Seattle. To escape her haunting memories, Rachel takes Aidan and moves to the small coastal community of Astoria, Oregon, to start fresh. However, Rachel's resolve quickly turns to dread when evidence at a local crime scene-including an unmarked videotape-seems eerily familiar. Rachel realizes that the vengeful Samara is back and more determined than ever to continue her relentless cycle of terror and death.
The Movie never really takes off. Spacek's character was the greatest part of the movie. Her horror image shows the movies only real solid scene. But, despite all the hype and all the anxiety awaiting the film, The Ring Two is just another sequel.

Travolta is back as Chili Palmer in this sequel to "Get Shorty", a much better film. He meets a young singer who has the talent to be the hottest thing in Music. He tries to get a record deal for her and has some trouble on the way. He bumps into people from his past and new faces as well. Vince Vaughn is a white gangster, The Rock is a homosexual, and people are just all over this place in this failure of a comedy.

A Controversial Thriller
John Constantine (Reeves) received to what many believe as a gift when he was born. He was able to send demons that were trying to enter earth back to the wretched fires of hell. He believes that in doing this he will earn a ticket into heaven. But there is one problem, he tried to take someone's life a long time ago...his own.
Churchgoers will take offense to this film. It has controversial dialogue and could show different views on heaven and hell. But the film does show creative style with its depiction on the after life. I liked what I saw but I wanted more.
