    I really liked the first 30 minutes of Saw, but the film kind of peters out. I mean, didn't you expect the body with the face blown off to be something more than what it was?

    Because the first one was such a cinematic masterpiece...

    Waste of time and money, both the sequel and the original.

    I'm sure it will suck. The first one wasn't too bad, at least it was a bit unconventional. The sequel looks incredibly stupid though. But, who knows, maybe there will be some good gore/death sequences.

    Wait for DVD.

    It will suck a big time I guess... First one was an absolute masterpiece... They should give up making sequels for such great movies...

    Meh.

    Yet another stupid Hollywood movie, labelled stupid even by Americans. People should encourage the talent of some huge figures in modern American movie making. Aronofsky. Lynch. The Cohen brothers.

    Or, you could invest in real masterpieces from the beginning of the century. Nosferatu, The Man With The Movie Camera, The cabinet of dr. Calligari to name just a few.

    I'm a big Saw fan and I have to admit this movie rocked. Was it as good as the first? No, but it was still worth every penny and minute IMO.

    Was it too hollywoodized or it still got's that b-thriller feel to it?

    Saw 2 is worth seeing, IMO. Its main problem though, is it tries to use the novelty of the first to carry it through. But, I wouldn't be surprised if there was a Saw 3. I'd probably go see it too...

    Serial Murder Serials

    Serial Murder Serials




    WARNING: Reader Beware: Openly tangential vectoring.


    ''SAW'', ''SAW 2'' these entertainments are about serial killers?
    How hard up are ""we"" [western culture] for entertainment? Our real life politicians and preachers are bloody handed enough, perhaps the stalker of urban legend lets us 'little people'' stick our virtual fingers into the meat grinder that is human civilization. Serial killers: Is this a 'lucrative' medium to speculate investment dollars? The orbital trajectory of Google not exciting enough? This could be the ol' ''win - win'' , a 'tasteful' packaging of 'blood, gore, and horror'.
    FOR more immediate, or rather ''home town'' source of gratification, I suggest our local police reports that star the stalking behavior of estranged spouses. This could be a ''real time'' and thrilling muzzle full of terror for our jaded, callused joy sticks.

    I propose going beyond a ""Cops"' Special on couples in conflict. We may want Jerry Springer for the spin off products ''Infomercial''. The 'face time' on late nite TV might get him elected Senator! ""Win - win!!""

    Since all the SMART MONEY(TM) is still fixated on -- "Reality'' -- programing, I propose for your speculation and imaginary exploitation , riding the ''Reality'' milk cow into the greener, or redder pastures of ''''ToeToeLL - Reality(TM)'''.
    Follow the money, follow the trail of blood to the corpse of the woman YOU saw 'live' a few hours before and speculate with the chatty CELEBRITY commentators on whether
    one: ""da b'tch who had it comin'"
    two: was beaten to death by a ball bat or ax handle.

    The American version can feature the murder of minors, but not graphically exploit the rape of those not of voting age,... We can televise the abortions in the 'blue states'.
    The European version will turn it's eyes from minor murder, and offer ''pay per view'' on the 'instant replay' of the rape of children. We will feature incestuous atrocities and those done later by the court appointed foster parents.
    We will have ready ''boot leg'' copies of both versions to pander to the world wide pedophile market.

    The bottom feeders will delight in 1-900 call in voting on the ''real time" -- murders, scoring may include dramatic passion and aesthetic arrangement of the bodily remains.

    The immediate spin offs will be documentaries on the making of the making on the making of '''ToeToeLL - Reality''', AND the video games ... FPS, RTS versions will wet the appetite and recruit for the ' ' Massive 'Real Time' On CAMERA' ' game, pay to play! -- BE the real life stalkers and victims. No snotty server fees, except in the online marketing! ''' Win - win - win -win -win !!''


    The success of real time spouse abuse will prepare the market for 'real time' serial killers. The artful sons of Hannibal L. will leave clues for our roving camera crews. Why watch in safe potato burrows when YOU, YOU, AND YOU can LIVE, and die(**), the life of a POLICE CRIME - SCREEN - INVESTIGATOR!

    (**) You may be selected at random as a ''bonus points'' victim!

    Cannibal jokes will open a brave new venue in processed foods.
    I'm waiting for the breakfast treat, the cerealization of serial murder::

    ""Hannibal's Cannib-OOOw's! Just add milk, and it -- eat's -- ... YOU!

    How's that for entertainment!

    ................................


    Must be a air liner full of Congressmen.


    .................................

    Wasn't reptile wrangling an episode of ""Fear Factor""?

    If not, I'd choose the volunteer contestants by psychological testing, seek out the truly snake phobic.
    AND to make the match up 'sporting'. The video victims would hail from 'snake country'. People with culturally acquired survival reflexes, healthy and unashamed, ''snake fear''.


    .............................

    Cannib-OOOw-s.


    What prizes could be offered with 'proof of purchase'?

    A 'sekret' decoder ring !!
    BE the first to decipher the clues of the show's killers! Maybe YOU have been elected to participate!

    Get ready for your ''moment of truth'' !

    YOU in the center ring of psychotic fantasy come to Real Life (tm), and it's only REAL if it's on TV!

    That's REALITY----TV !!!!!!!!!!

    Save those box tops and stay tuned ......

    A sequel of a sequel of a sequel is extruding out the entertainment chute.

    How very mature of you to admit that.

    Wasn't the first movie full of plot holes big enough to drive a truck through? Why would anyone want a sequel?

    I totally agree. The movie has about as much cinematic origionality as a badly shot episode of "charmed". Being a film major, I have atleast a little authority to say that I've studied the medium, and can conferm that "Saw" and probably it's sequil, was a lame attempt at making a movie to appeal to the sick and twisted portion of the population. Which is why it doesn't suprise me that it's a popular topic on this site :)

    However to the films credit, the -idea- has some origionality, and the acting was half diecent. Also, as horrid as the movie was (I particularly hated the ending, even if it was fairly well written and unexpected to many) it was a fairly well made movie: they made good use of the budget, they had a couple good actors, they (apparently) had a more or less good writer, and the movie even had a few moments where it boardered on a good film, atleast up until the last twenty minutes or so.

    The thing about the movie that I dislike the most is the conceptual aspect of the story and it's ending, and the sociological implications it has: the way I see it, this movie is more evidence that Americans (I like being one less and less each day) have a bloodlust for pain and suffering. Horror movies in general, I think, advocate an attitude of the glorification of senceless, gretuitous violence against innocent people. Now don't get me wrong, I glorify violence just as much as the next film maker: the movie I'm working on now has plenty of violence. But its violence that can be justified, violence that is perpetrated by a hero who is fighting bad people for a just cause. When you watch a man slaughter five kids with a chainsaw in a horror movie, how can someone consider that art?

    Wooz brought up the very good example of Nosferatu. Now theres a horror movie worth seeing. It's the origional dracula, one of the first and best. Go see it, it will make you a better person.

    Saw 2 was just another way to get retards to buy more overpriced tickets, soda, and candy. 2 out of 5. 2 points just for the gore.
