Read about Saw 2 sequel on joblo ages ago. Haha, I tend to get the twists of tv shows and films and one friend remained unconvinced til, 10 or so minutes into watching the Saw dvd, I wrote down who I thought the killer was on a piece of paper. He looked at it later and was gobsmacked. Loved the editing on Saw, very cool, look forward to sequel, sounds like they're doing a few things different.

Yeah I am looking forward to it. There is a different director (who graduated from Full Sail, actually) so I am interested in how he does things.

SAW ?.

smile Well count me out on that one.
The first movie was ( in my opinion ) the greatest load of “you know what” that I ever SAW in my life. It was painful watching the actors, and the story was even worse.

I'm with you guys...I truely didn't like the original SAW very much. I didn't hate it or anything, but it just seemed trite, contrived, predictable, and in places, very poorly acted.

I also did not find the spiral clown faced fellow, with his electronic laughter, to be very scary.....BAH!

I thought the first saw was actually really entertaining for the first half, then when the acting started to suffer heavily it became essentially an exploitation horror. Two scenes scared the HELL out of me, but the rest was just interesting to see how nasty they could make the traps. The twist at the end completely caught me off guard...i don't really see how it was so obvious...

Saw sucked. Read the screenplay, creeped me out- imagination is a powerful thing- but once I saw (ohh!!!) footage it was utter crap. Utter and weird crap. On a stick.

I thought the story was really cool in the 1st, not to mention original. But the actors butchered it up so bad it wasnt even funny. So the story really had no lasting effect on me, that was positive atleast. I'll prob see the next one though because it's good to take girls to those kinda movies. "If you know what I mean" (Said like Chris Farley in Billy Madison).

What I mean by "hah" is that the first one was utter garbage, and it doesn't deserve a sequel.

Best part was when Robin hood was overacting while trying to grab the cellphone at the end.

I guess your ability to know the difference between Oranges and Apples will get you a great job in the produce industry.

The reason the good guy doesn't shoot the bad guy is because he has to shwo the audience he's BETTER than the bad guy, hence being a good guy. They usually don't have to wait long after, as the bad guy will no doubt betray thier mercy, and they will have the oppourtuniy to swing around and shoot them then. Just have patience Je'tai.

Personally I think SAW was a terrible movie. Over-stylized.

I think the style of the movie was all it really had going for it to be honest. acting, story, and dialogue all blew. hard.

Saw was a fun movie, nothing epoch making or particuarly outstanding - just a fun horror movie with a twist. I imagine the sequel will be similiar, I don't see that as any particular crime - no more than the constant remakes of asian films or any jackie chan movie wink

Jetaimaster - the path you are walking is a road to nowhere, read the forum rules regarding personal attacks and get your attitude in check else you'll end up being removed from the forums.

i understand that. however, since we are "talking" on the internet, ppl in general tend to use abbreviations so they have to type less. doesn't mean they are less educated. and its not like other ppl can't understand that ure either means you're or your.
i mean i can understand if i was typing like those weird ppl that play online games who type with numbers as letters.

Indeed. Good Grammar and spelling is really the backbone of online argueing or point making as in itself it's a mark of intelligence and if someone is percieved to be intelligent then it's also likely that they'll be percieved to be correct over someone who uses txt spelling even though they sit infront of a keyboard.

Anyway, I've resisted mass deleting posts in this thread and I personally don't plan to as a public example of someone breaking rules/appearing to be outright rude being put in place by a communities members and not moderators is somehow heart warming.
However, that's all done and dusted now so from this post onwards I'll be removing anything related to the earlier incident as I believe it's safe to say he's learnt his lesson and will be wording things more carefully in the future.

Now, back on topic people! wink

Saw was stupid. I remember scoffing at its presumptuous assumptions of "audience intelligence"

It felt like a Hitchcock/Micheal Bay rip off. Strange combination, yes.

Freakin' Saw. Oh man. I had trouble remembering this movie the other day so I went to see the trailer for the first one again, and it all flooded back. TERRIBLE movie. Piece of intellectual garbage.

I love you all though.

The only way the twist at the end of saw 2 would be better than the AWESOME twists of Saw is if jigsaw pulled out a pepsi, but then revealed it was a pepsi twist with lemon

ps I hate movies with twists that feel forced

Um..... I never saw Saw, looked to gory and violent for the sake of gore and violence. Not my kind of movie.

I agree, the movie wasn't void of good moments by any means. My favourite part of the movie was the scene where the photographer is kidnapped, even though the climax/final ambush wasn't by any means as scary as it could/should have been though everything leading up to that with the camera flashes and the way it illuminates the scene with a light fade out (There's probably a more technical term for it) really struck a note with me for some reason.
