    Okay, i'm terrible at reviews, and i have other important things that should be done before i hit the rack. but, all in all it's a decent flick.

    I mean, it's what you would expect from a Saw movie. Lots of gore, interesting death traps, and a plot-hole filled story that leaves you wondering, "what the fuck?" But that's just it. the ending makes absolutely no fucking sense.

    now that i think of it a bit clearer headed. i can see how it would work out. But I am ultimately confused by ***SPOILER ALERT**** (i don't know how to do that black text thing)





    ****************************
    I don't get why the extra help is dressed the exact same as he's exiting the death trap he put himself in (albeit it would never really kill him) as he is when he walks in on the ending of Saw3. I mean, did anyone notice that? or is my brain just assuming because of how the scenes transitioned? Because it looked like he had the same blood stain on his face.

    END OF SPOILER


    Anyways, interesting to say the most. I didn't jump at all. Kinda at the first death tap with the two guys. But hardly at all.


    Blah. The acting was good enough. I expected nudity which there was absolutely none.

    plot summary
    In short, for those wondering, the entirety of the first 3 films, he had another accomplice, (other than that kinda hot ex-junkie). i wouldn't consider this a spoiler though, because you find it out within the first 10 minutes or so. And after it's brought up, you're like, "yeah, what the fuck... did i expect that old cripple to be able to drag bodies around and stage their death traps?"

    So, the carnage continues. I would expect another Saw movie next halloween. This franchise doesn't seem to want to die. But after watching this, I'd say it's going down-hill fast.

    It got a rottentomatoes score of 16%.

    I'd advise seeing it if you're into gore and shit though.


    By the way, another really horrible dancing movie about some girl wanting to dance, but it might ruin her life, but it turns out that she's too good at popping-and-locking for the up-tight ballet-type school to hold her down. ultimately she will succeed in her endeavors of "Steping it up 2 the streets." And you're in luck that it comes out on valentines day, so you and your date can hang around a bunch of 14 year olds who believe this kinda shit happens in the real world. and maybe you'll see some hot 14 year old handjobs.

    oh yeah, saw a poster for Harold and Kumar 2. Had Neil Patrick Harris on a unicorn. I expect it to be hilarious.

    I didn't like it. It was far beyond the "what the fuck" realm for me, and it was just lame.

    It never explained how or why his 3rd accomplice decided to do it.

    And there weren't enough traps.

    Good autopsy scene though.

    And...they're making Saw V and VI at the same time. What the fuck?

    i didn't mean what the fuck, like how i infer you are implying it. i mean it like, "oh my god, how did this even make it to the camera. this story makes no sense"

    Oh no, I meant it how you meant it. It was so convoluted. It was like they were trying to make it twist and turn and tie into the other movies...and they were doing ok for a while. Until they got lost, and couldn't figure it out themselves. So they tried to fix it and got even more confused before throwing their hands up and saying "who the hell cares, people will see it even if it's some guy with a saw cutting people up for 110 minutes."

    The story is becoming way too cluttered. They really need to stop introducing new characters. It's becoming confusing...

    I've always felt like the writers are totally winging it as they go. The first Saw had to have been like this:
    1. Come up with a bunch of ideas for cool death scenes.
    2. Get hat
    3. Put every extra's names in hat
    4. Draw name from hat to pick the villian.

    Either that or they just really suck at writing and forgot the part where you drop clues to foreshadow something.

    The 3rd one really wasn't as bad as I expected it to be.

    This one seems like overkill though.

    There's such a thing as milking the dawg. there's only so much you're going to get out of it. Instead of stretching the same theme out, sometimes it's best to start a new trip. but as long as people watch gazillionquels, they'll keep making them.
