Saw

Post by Rotting Corpse » Thu Nov 30, 2017 5:32 am

Wonder if anyone here is a fan of the series. I know it gets quite a bit of hate, but I've been a fan since almost the beginning. It's a clever series and better than it's sometimes credited for. Jigsaw is without a doubt one of the best more recent Horror icons in recent times and I have fun memories of catching the newest sequel every Halloween season. The recent Jigsaw (AKA Saw VIII) was pretty good and it was fun getting a new sequel this Halloween.

My ranking:


2
1
6
8
5

I believe I've seen all of them except the latest. I don't like Jigsaw so much as I like all the games. I also like Shawnee

I also like #2 the best. Shawnee of course :drool:

It's funny because I felt like 1 was a disappointment when I first saw it. Great concept, just executed kind of badly, but I would probably rank it in the second postion now. It's definitely grown on me. I can't even remember which of the others sequels I have seen or not. They all kind of blur together in my head.

As for Jigsaw. Eh, not really a fan ultimately of him. Partially I don't like the actor, partially I just don't care about his story. I don't know. Seems lacking IMO.

The series would definitely be good to re-visit if you don't remember some of the other entries too well.

I picked up the entire collection dirt cheap and still have yet to revisit it, which is the reason I picked up the set....last year. :mad:

Seems lacking to me too. Like this guy is a total narcissistic bitch baby.

I watched the first movie when it came out, didn't like it and subsequently never revisited the franchise. I guess I should give them another try. If Netflix had them all (or most of them) then I'd probably go for it, but I'm not going to spend any extra on a series I might still hate.

If you didn't like the first one, I'm betting you won't like the rest of them either. They all kind of run together in my memory :lol: The situations/games are interesting, but they get old after a bit.

That's kinda what I'm thinking, but it spawned so many sequels there has to be some enjoyment in there somewhere. Maybe I can find it. :lol:

I think a big part of it is you get to see Donny Wahlberg tortured and crying in most of them :lol:
