What have we learned?
« on: May 13, 2008, 09:42:23 PM »
If you're going to have two characters that spend a large portion of the movie yelling at each other emotionally, maybe it's best to NOT cast a Brit and a Aussie, neither of whom are all that adept at an American accent.

And bonus, what we DIDN'T learn: so this has troubled me for some time, but so okay, if Jigsaw's whole game is that he makes people fight for their survival, then what of the dude with the opiate overdose who had no point but to lay there and have Shawnee sort through his organs?  How was he supposed to save himself?  Oh Jigsaw, you with your ambiguous morals and chic boxer shorts.

Why couldn't they shoot the locks off? Or shimmy them with the stuff from his wallet?

I learned that Bill Corbett dropping an f-bomb is great comedy.

I learned that Saw is really a mask for the writer's fascination with furries.

And finally, I learned that I would love to have Shawnee Smith "sort through [my] organs." Oh, wait, what? That wasn't a euphemism? I stand by what I said.

I haven't watched the riff yet but going off my previous exposure to this movie I've learned:

That Cary Elwes is slowly morphing into Nick Nolte.  This cannot end well for him.

That it's really easy to give your movie a unforeseeable twist ending when the twist makes no freakin' sense whatsoever!  Thats' what annoyed me most about Saw.  I won't give it away but the ending makes you go 'Ah hah! Well that explains... wait, no it doesn't!'

Can't wait to watch this.

Oh and I also learned that every other line in this movie is "Excuse me?" said in a condescending "hello, earth to you, I'm trying to get your attention, gah" tone.

I learned that I was right in avoiding this movie all this time. Funny riff, but GOOD GOD did this movie suck! Poinless, boring, annoying characters, useless twists that make no sense whatsoever. The only person I felt any empathy for was Danny Glover. Not his character, the actor.

And yes, Danny, you were awesome in Predator 2.

I learned that the best way to excuse a ridiculous and nonsensical plot is to drive all your characters insane.

It works on the audience.

I learned that the art of puppetry can be subverted for evil means.
Also, I learned that the machining of reverse bear traps can be accomplished in a soon to be overpriced downtown loft

Quoted for truth!

Also, I learned that everyone telling me they were watching this franchise for the "story" or the "clever twists" or the "sense of irony" were a bunch of fucking liars.

If they said they were watching it for the gore, they were lying, too.
