"The Ruins" is neither a 1 nor a 10. A masterpiece it is not, but it's really not all that bad.

The thing that irks some people is that they want to know why stuff happens. In all honesty, it doesn't really matter here. Whether the characters know why or not, it won't do them any good in this case.

Personally, I sort of enjoy not knowing why. Much like "Cloverfield", ... read more

Pode dizer o que quiser, mas The Ruins, pra mim, é um dos melhores filmes modernos de terror.
O filme consegue melhorar coisas em relação ao livro, o que é muito raro desde que as adaptações surgiram no cinema. Mas ok, eu aceito dizer que não é um filme que você irá gostar, até porque, ou você gosta muito, ou não gosta. Coisa normal de acontecer com bons filmes.

Nowadays, I have Netflix and Popcorn and, not only I have since then an endless selection or movies to choose from but, as a result, I have become slightly more picky regarding the movies I watch. Before, I used to watch pretty much anything as long as it was starring one or two actors I was interested in and, as a result, I would sometimes end up watching some really obscure features.

"October 10 "We're being quarantined here. We are being kept here to die!" "This doesn't happen! Four Americans on a vacation don't just disappear!" The only reason this was even on my radar was because there was a little bit of backstory between me and this movie years ago. I was 11 when my dad rented it back when video stores where still a huge thing and he was watching it in the background around the time I was trying to sleep. I remember being terrified by what I heard in the background t"

"Ruins Dreams of ruins reflect the buried treasures of your heart and soul. If you dream of discovering ruins, as in a shamanic soul retrieval, then this signifies reunification of lost pieces of your soul that allows you to feel connected and unified to your wisdom and spiritual bounty. Alternatively, dreaming of ruins could signify old and worn out aspects of your self that no longer serve you. Consider the feeling tone. "
