The Worst ‘Rings’ Reviews: Critics Are Raving!
Have you ever seen those movie ads on TV filled with gushing quotes from critics and thought to yourself, “I saw that movie; it was terrible. Where did they find these positive reviews?” If you have, you’re not alone — and you’re going to love ScreenCrush’s newest series, Critics Are Raving!, which balances the cinematic scales with trailers full of slightly more accurate (and slightly more negative) lines from reviews. Real critics. Real quotes. Really bad movies. That’s what’s Critics Are Raving! is all about.
On our eleventh episode: Before you die, the critics rave. Actually the third American film in The Ring franchise, Rings, is quietly one of the worst reviewed movies of 2017, and even the last couple years. It currently has a 7 percent on Rotten Tomatoes. (For comparison’s sake, Nine Lives got an 11.) With all those bad reviews, there was plenty of options for our latest Critics Are Raving! We promise watching it will not saddle you with a ghost girl curse.
Want to see what the real critics TV spot for Rings looked like? (Yes, there really was one.) Here it is:
