Title: Sawts?
Post by: mrbasehart on May 14, 2008, 08:55:42 AM
Didn't see a thread for this, and I really couldn't resist the joke.  From the preview it looks good, and I hope to get the DVD in the post sometime soon.  What did everybody else think?

Loved it!  Laughed hard and loud and often.  I think my favorite line was after Elwes does the semi-awkward "this little piggy" routine, "ah, it's the killer in the closet asking me to stop that."

This one was by far my favs out of all the Horror flicks that have been rifftrax'd.

I hadn't seen the film prior to the riff. It wasn't nearly as grisly or demented as I anticipated. Seemed kind of tame to me, actually.

Oh, and it sucks. Elwes' performance in the last twenty minutes of the movie is astonishingly bad.

The Rifftrax is hilarious. One of the best, possibly because Kevin and Bill are so uninhibited. They do a good job of keeping it silly, even when the movie tries its darnedest to be disturbing.

You know, I kept trying to figure out what the connection between Saw and the traditional Arabic music known as the sawt was. Really turned the brain off today.

I loved this riff and laughed very hard. Again, the only minor trivial "criticism" is that I wanted Kevin and Bill to go bluer, really let loose with those f-bombs and such. One (of many) beloved comment:

"This was a triumph."
"I'm making a note here, huge success."
Title: Re: Sawts?
Post by: Sheik Yerbouti on May 17, 2008, 11:02:22 AM
I liked hearing Corbett dropping the f-bomb!  For me, more profanity is not necessary to the experience but it didn't hurt that's for sure.  This isn't a movie you should show to your kids anyway.

God what a turd this film was!  It thought it was so very clever, twisting and turning like a twisty turny thing, but really it was just a piece of crap with a franchise-able bad guy.  The riff was flat out brilliant.  I never thought I'd see them do a film like this but they really pulled it off.  If you're on the fence about it, you really should get this one.  The movie isn't nearly as horrifying as it would like to think it is, you'll survive.

My sawts are fraught with wrot. Or not. I thought it was hilarious. The last time I got together with some of my friends from work (they're kinda blue collar) (which I guess makes me blue collar) (that kinda sucks) (maybe I should get back to my post) I showed them 300 and it killed. They loved it. I'm going to get them together and watch this one.

Favorite bit:

Shoot him.

He won't move if you shoot him in the head.

Nobody listens to me.

Well I hope they don't dip into this particular well often, but I was pleased with the results. The Riffing kept me at a comfortable psychological distance from the movie, and there were some killer riffs in there.

I loved the whole bit where the killer's explaining the situation to one of his victims and Kevin (I think) chimes in with, "Also there's a chipmunk strapped to your head with a stick of dynamite between its legs..."

I'm now looking forward to the Bill and Kevin Riff of Saw 2.  Not immediately, of course, but when they do it I'm sure I'll enjoy it.

I hadn't seen the movie before the Rifftrax and it was horrible.  Not horribly violent, just horrible.  Between the bad acting, the fact that everyone from the killer down had to be a complete moron for the plot to work, and the complete waste of what could have been a cool premise.  The movie has moments where it seems to be building to something clever and then it fakes out by being completely stupid.

Bill and Kevin worked as well as I was expecting; I know Rifftrax is Mike's baby but I'll buy any Kevin and Bill work without hesitation.

Post by: Pak-Man on May 20, 2008, 10:18:52 AM
I woke up very early this morning and this riff popped into my head. It took all my effort to not burst out laughing and wake Tyrant, and even more to forget it and get back to sleep.

Raspy Killer Dude: "Hello, Paul. You are a perfectly healthy, sane and middle-class male..."
Bill (As RKD) "Well... Bye!"

A simple riff, but a wonderfully timed one. :^)

Post by: Priest on May 20, 2008, 10:40:48 AM
I laughed really hard when they show Danny Glover looking at the Amanda tape in the office and his partner is about to leave and Glover calls him back and his partner says,

"What?"

and Glover only grunts and waves his hand to come back and Bill says,

"Where's my kiss you asshole"  LMAO!!!

My God, one of the best riffs in the whole track, this is my favorite rifftrax so far.

Post by: Tyrant on May 20, 2008, 03:00:14 PM
Wow, this was a really stupid movie. I don't understand why it took off the way it did. I don't find it to be the least bit disturbing or scary. Additionally,  as a person who has that clown phobia (whatever it's called) which also sometimes applies to mimes and dolls, the puppet thing was more ridiculous than anything else in the movie and I found myself laughing anytime it showed up, not scared. People really got creeped out by it? REALLY? Whatever....

 Man, Kevin and Bill tore this thing a new one, and I love them for it. I loved the Marylin Manson line with that stupid puppet. Hilarious. Not sure I want them to do Saw 2, however. Saw was a lot tamer than I thought it would be and I know the genre has just gotten worse since.

There's always such a fine line between "real" bad and "pretend" bad (read as "I know it was supposed to be a goofy bad death scene, but really, it was just irritating and cringe-inducing").

  If it was, it was badly timed and fit poorly with the rest of the movie. I can see it if the rest of the movie was tongue-in-cheek, perhaps. But since this was supposed to be a movie that was trying to disturb and scare you, it doesn't jive with the rest of the film.

To be fair, it was stated in the third movie that he doped himself up and was actually out for the duration of the film.  But not unlike the jigsaw puzzle piece thing which was never heard of again, this totally undoes the whole "he likes a front row to his own sick game" thing since he couldn't watch what with him being unconscious and all.  So yeah. 

I enjoy the movie, but the suspension of disbelief is a pretty flimsy.

He could have used a paralyzing agent. That would have allowed him to be conscious but immobile, allowing Jigsaw to at least be aware of what is going on.

Wow. I was expecting this film to be a lot better than it was. The acting was almost uniformly awful, the plot was ridiculously improbable, there was a stupid twist ending...and I had prepared myself for something gory or scary. It even disappointed me there! I see from other posts that I'm not alone.

On the up side, I liked Michael Emerson.

The Riff, on the other hand, was all kinds of fantastic. One of my favourites in a while!

Really enjoyed it. It was a nice change of pace from all the 2 and a half hour blockbusters. I also like that Rifftrax presents seems to be focusing on slightly older films. Kevin and Bill were in fine form for this extremely riffable movie. I laughed throughout this extremely strange film. I had seen it when it first came out but after watching the rifftrax version my opinion of the movie went down several notches. Highlights for me were all the comments on how grimy-looking every set in the film looks (it reminded me off one of my favorite riffs in MST from the Undead...'Dirty flithy walls, a short lived design fad) and the scene with the head-gear woman. The riffing in that scene was great.

Lots of good riffs and lots of good fun. Would like to see them tackle more grim, depressing, joyless, stupid, grimy stuff like this.

Someone actually likes any of the saw? And out of all possible ones to like, the first one is one of them? It was made in under a month, and even the creators of it said it sucked.

I like them in the "they are so bad they are good" way..  Saw had me laughing in my seat the whole time. Before there was a RiffTrax for it...

Yeah.  Well, I enjoy the second and fourth movies the most, actually.  Saw III was just the guy from Braveheart blundering around for 90 minutes being stupid and fat.  That one kind of sucked.

Well, I freely admit that I I actually enjoyed the first Saw film when I saw it in the cinema. I thought it was a bit different from other horror films and kept me guessing. As I said already, however, it did not hold up well. After watching the film again I would have to give it a thumbs down. I would like to think that I would have had the same opinion without watching Kevin and Bill tear it apart. Then again, if they hadn't done a riff of it, I never would've watched it again anyway.

I'm not ashamed to admit I love them all.  And no they didn't.

honestly, I don't understand why anyone should be ashamed for liking a movie

I like the first one (though bad acting always makes my teeth crawl - I'm glaring at you, eyes brimming with hatred, Leigh Whannell), love the second one, didn't care for the third one, and haven't seen the fourth one yet. I may rent that  this weekend; I've been on a real horror kick lately.

I'm a sucker for horror films, so I can forgive a LOT of bad acting in them.    I liked the first Saw, but did not see any of the others.

The Rifftrax for Saw was very funny.    They should do more horror movies.

I agree.  I know Gammer would disagree, but I think there's a lot of riffing potential with these horror films.

I, for one, would love to watch a riff of Cannibal Holocaust.

Nah. The people in the movie are, at least that's what the courts tried to prove. Now, if you'll excuse me, I have some ribs on the grill that I have to tuck into. Belonged to a cute little thing...

This is the one and only Rifftrax I've ever tossed into File 13. I just can't find humor in this type of movie. I certainly enjoyed The Grudge and Halloween, so I know they have been successful in the past riffing on movies of this genre. But this pile of crap....how can anyone laugh while watching this turd? So sorry, Bill and Kevin, but this offering has been removed from my collection. Although I think you are both brave to have sat and watched this one in its entirety.

Now, time to hit he pause button and return to The Day After Tomorrow.  :)

I laughed the entire time I was watching Saw in the theater. From Elwes horrible "american" accent to any scene with Danny Glover. Sure there are better RiffTrax out there but i thought it was great. I really wish that the more non-mainstream stuff would sell better because those are usually my favorite Trax.

It all just depends on if the movie disturbs you too much to laugh.  That's the case for some, and I can understand it, but I loved it.

Correct, it leaves nothing to the imagine whatsoever. Not my cup of tea, I guess.  :-\

What do you mean?  None of the movies are funny on their own, and most of them suck on their own.  It's the riff that you're supposed to laugh at, not the film.

I find it hard to laugh period when so much gratuitous violence is on display. I don't think I need to defend or explain myself any further than this.

I don't know, Thrifty, I found the hammy acting to be fairly funny on its own without the riffing.

It's okay; that's a fair objection.  The gore is pretty heavy, and if you're not comfortable with that, it could be pretty distracting.

Yeah, torture isn't my thing either. Especially if the killer is a human being. Unless it's a monster or someone with powers, I'm not interested. I find that stuff scary when I read about it in the newspaper, not in movies. That's not what I go to the movies for.
