Saw "The Ring" Sunday night- am debating if I want to exert any enegy reviewing it. I think it is pointless to do so until I see the Japanese version which until a few days ago I didn't even know existed- shame on me!!

Anyways I decided I might review a number of foreign films and their American remakes such as "Plein Soleil" (Purple Noon) starring my favorite French matinee idol Alain Delon vs. "The Talented Mr. Ripley" and the 2002 Christopher Nolan "Insomnia" vs. the 1997 Erik Skjoldbjaerg version starring Stellan Skarsgard. When I think of some others I'll do those as well. I am thinking "Vanilla Sky" vs. Alejandro AmenĂ¡bar's "Abre los ojos."
