I never liked this flick. It was one of those films that I never understood how it got so popular.
At least this isn't the even worse sequel. I walked out on that film before the title screen. Yes, I seriously did. I was also on a date.*
*Surprisingly....I didn't burn that bridge with that move. It would be a few weeks later.

I'm pleased that the picture quality is that good! I was on the fence about this one, but I'll probably get it next time I stop in Best Buy.

Honestly, I have never understood what people like about this movie. I find it to be boring. The opening is pretty good, but after that, it takes too long to do anything and then the plot is so convoluted to the point that I think they were just making it up as they went along. Do not misunderstand me though, I hate the Japanese version too for the exact same reasons. The only thing I can think of is that this is what made the ghost girl crap popular since it was brand new at the time."...somewhere out there, michael bay now has the basis for his next film...and it's all your fault." - project-blu

This movie I liked. Why people liked The Grudge, I could never understand. Also glad to see the PQ is that good, looking at my copy now, can't wait until the projector bulb arrives.HT gear: JVC RS46 3D projector with 147in Hi Power screen, Klipsch RF-7 based 9.1 system, Emotiva XPA5 5 channel amp, Pioneer 1120 reciever, Oppo BDP-95(region free), Xbox 360, Toshiba XA2

I'll throw in my vote with those that love this movie. I found it scary in the extreme, but the environment is absolutely critical. Watching this in your living room on a sunny day in spring is not how you do it. I definitely found this CREEPY.Yamaha rx-v1900

I'm a little bit surprised that the color timing issue was so glossed over in this review. I've been given to understand that this film has been "Matrixed" for this release. Some people have said the change is not extreme compared with the DVD, or that it more closely resembles the original theatrical look, while others have said the film has taken a bath in pea soup that it never had before now. I would have liked the review to speak a bit more to that.

Honestly, I don't see what is so scary in most movies. It doesn't matter if they are from the 60s, 70s, 80s, 90s, or 00s, most horror movies are not scary. There is nothing scary about Nightmare on Elm Street, Friday the 13th, Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Child's Play, or Halloween. There is nothing scary about their sequels other than how their actors get worse as they go on. There is nothing scary in I Know What You Did Last Summer, Day of the Dead, Dawn of the Dead, Land of the Dead, Hostel, Saw, etc, they all just think gore is what is scary. For me, a movie's worth is based on its creativity, its suspense, and its atmosphere. The Thing is an incredible movie because it has all three. The Scream movies run on their creativity. The Saw movies work (the first three, anyway) for their creativity with the traps and the suspense they caused because no movie was the same. The Grudge had its atmosphere and suspense. Even the first Nightmare on Elm Street and New Nightmare, while not scary at all, has creativity and atmosphere going for them. That is also why the first two and fifth Final Destinations work. They use creativity and suspense to build their atmosphere, especially the second and fifth ones."...somewhere out there, michael bay now has the basis for his next film...and it's all your fault." - project-blu
