Jigsaw (2017)
« on: June 22, 2017, 03:00:51 PM »

The Saw franchise is one of my guilty (not so guilty) pleasures. A lot of people seem to think pretty negatively of them aside from the first two, but I love them all. Way back when Saw: Legacy AKA Saw 8 was teased/announced/whatever I was pretty excited. I actually completely forgot about it because it went so long without any word on it. As of about 10 minutes ago I've learned it's been rebranded as Jigsaw and is coming out in October.

Not many details are known about it yet and no one seems to know whether it's a true sequel or if it's the rumored reboot. Tobin Bell is reprising his role as Jigsaw though, which I'm very pleased with. No one else could do the role justice I don't think, not in the same vein. I am skeptical though that neither Costas Mandylor or Cary Elwes seem to be involved. If it's a true sequel, this is a pretty odd decision. If it's a reboot, I guess it doesn't matter whatsoever.

Unfortunately I'm one of the people in the camp you mentioned. I feel they had a good thing going at the start but then basically milked it dry. I can't say I'm all too excited to see them rehashing this series... again.

Yeah, definitely milked more than a cows tits. They just kept inserting twist after twist.

I'll watch it at some point but expectations are low at this point.

I definitely see where you're coming from, but it could also be argued that series like Friday, Nightmare, Halloween, etc. were milked (for the same amount of sequels and more) and are still relatively enjoyed if for nothing more than nostalgia and a campiness factor.

I don't want to be alone in this  [*no*]

Ohh hell yes.. total guilty pleasure stuff for me. I know they started to take the piss a bit but I can't help but look forward to this..
