    Unhappy Talk of a new Saw.

    Meh. Jigsaw sucked. But since they rebooted everything, we will need more sequels, or will they decide enough is enough?

    Never was too excited about the franchise in the first place. Meh.

    I hate when simple talking somehow becomes news. Anyway, the series needs to end for good

    Jigsaw should have killed any dreams of rebooting/ reimaging / sequels that they may have had, but I guess not

    Lets not pretend the original Saw was good enough to warrant sequels.
    Jigsaw and Saw are on par with one another.
    The only reason a lot of people view Saw with a positive memory is because it was slightly above "complete trash" while also being a lot of people's first exposure to torture porn.

    FTFY (tried making you sound less ignorant, you're welcome)

    Anyway, I think the franchise is a lot of fun. The first Saw had a simple, yet effective, premise and did well because of it. I think the sequels were based more on the traps than the actual story though. The second and third installments were just as good as the first. After that, they kind of start to blend together. The flashbacks became goofier and more and more characters were revealed to be helping him all along, which was pretty absurd. The series has its super goofy moments, but I have seen plenty worse.

    The last two Saw films were pretty bad though. Saw: The Final Chapter was a lot worse than Jigsaw. It felt like it was much cheaper to make than the original Saw was, when the original cost next to nothing. I'm not saying the budget was smaller, but I'm saying the film felt like the budget was smaller. Plus that ending was a fucking disaster. That completely came out of left field and made no sense at all. Jigsaw was on the same level really. Just a bunch of plot holes in disguise as, "This person was helping him all along!"

    Tl;dr. They aren't terrible films at all, in my opinion. I think any veteran horror fan has seen a lot worse than these, especially sequels in a horror franchise. I think the series is fun because it just got so ridiculous after a while that you can't even take them seriously. They are filled with great gore and pretty cool traps. I'd like another entry in the series that wasn't as lazy as the last two. Maybe give Tobin Bell a rest though.

    I enjoyed the first SAW. It was fresh and a little different. SAW II was OK, but not as good as the first. The rest are shit

    The original Saw is a good flick. Wan directed the shit out of that with a plot that really made you have to suspend belief for it to work.
    The problem with that is the movie took itself extremely seriously but the hook, although shocking was also a huge WTF (implausible) moment. The sequels dropped
    the serious tone of the first and went for the "what inventive ways can we turn the screen red" method. It worked for Saw 2 but it became tiresome
    half way through that film and I didn't care for anything after it.

    Yes Saw gave us new horror icons in Jigsaw and the creepy, spiral-cheeked puppet on a tricycle but let's just leave it at that.

    That's the best part about all the films. They took themselves so seriously based off a goofy premise. It eventually turned into a soap opera with all the double crosses and such. It was hysterical.

    I get the impression that Hollywood loves milking horror films more than any other genre.

    The first SAW is solid. The rest (sequels) paled in comparison but relied on the devotion that the original created and of course quality went out the window and money was the issue.

    I loved at the scene where John's nephew gets killed, not because that's funny as such, but because it was so bloody random!

    1 was good enough for me....after that it was all about how unique the kills were...didn't even realize there was still a story anymore.

    They are typically very cheap to make, they make profit (although typically not much, its quantity over quality most of the time) and they are also a good place to find new upcoming actors.

    Jigsaw took everything bad from the entire franchise and made it even worse. It was retarded and really doesn't deserve another sequel.
