They're going to go up to at least VI. I watch them because it's like the Friday the 13th of my generation.

Anyways, Hostel III is going to happen as a direct-to-dvd release. Hopefully that has more pornstars (like the first) for the TNA  factor.

BUMP! I recently moved and still don't have internet at my new place so that's why I havent been around too much lately.

Anyways, the release of Saw V has come and gone. I caught a midnight showing of it the night before it's release day and I was totally satisfied with it. It was exactly the movie it needed to be at this point in the series. All the promotions for the movie had the tagline "You won't believe how it ends" because all the Saw movies have the traditional twist ending, but really, it didn't have a twist ending. Maybe that's the twist though, that there was no twist. But the ending did have a very Saw movie type of ending regardless. Just the nature of it really shocked me. Also, I was very happy that it didn't leave it as a cliffhanger like Saw IV had. It definately left the door WIDE open for another (and hopefully final) entry in the series, with a few lingering set ups for possibel future plotlines, but the main narrative of the movie feels complete by the time the credits roll. Was greatful for that because I don't think I could've handled another year of suspense in the way that Saw IV had left me feeling.

So yeah, Saw V was great and I really hope that they decide to make the inevitable Saw VI the final chapter and end everything completely wrapped up and just right. I think it would cease being fun if they just kept going on seemingly forever. They just need the final pieces of the puzzle put in and let the saga stand as it is.

Yeah, I'm gonna be bumping this thread up every year, deal with it! Evil Though who knows, maybe they'll finally end it as the tagline seems to indicate, but with the news earlier this week that they're already talking about scripting Saw VII, who knows? These flicks cost about $10 million a piece to make, and every film in the series has made more than $100 million worldwide. How many long running series can say that each movie made 10 times their budget? So BRING ON October 23rd, I say! Cool

Saw VI has come and gone (and already is scheduled to come out on DVD in a few weeks). While it wasn't the grand finale I was hoping for that would end the series with a bang, it did tie up pretty much all the loose ends in the series up to this point. 6 would've been a good number to end on, but I guess it wasn't to be. It did leave one new mystery un-answered, though, and just generally left me curious about the consequences of some of the characters actions (at least the surviving ones, lol!). And it had one of the better "B" plot lines since Saw III.

There's always an "A" story and a "B" story going on in the Saw movies. The "A" one involves the long running plots that the sequels interloop with, and the "B" stories are exclusive to that particular sequel. The "B" story usually is where all the gore and such are put. I'm usually more interested in the "A" story and was glad that the Saw V "B" story had relatively little screen time. But in Saw VI the "B" story actually had more attention paid to it, rivalling only the first Saw movie (which itself was entirely a "B" story if you'll think of it that way), and this new "B" story was actually very good. better than the "A" story IMO. I feel the "A" story in VI wasn't handled as well as it could have, which made me disappointed at first, but in retrospect I think Saw VI will hold up considering it's great "B" story.

And now Saw VII is set to start filming on the first of next month for a..., you guessed it, October 2010 release! And also, it'll be in 3D! I'm wasn't clamouring for a 3D Saw entry, but as long as they keep the quality (or relative quality since most people seem to hate the Saw movies) I won't slam the 3D idea too much. And I'll be once again, eagerly awating it. One of the writers said recently that he has a "strong feeling" that the upcoming Saw VII may indeed be the final Saw chapter considering the less than stellar box office performance of Saw VI, making much less than all the other Saw movies. So maybe they can make Saw VII the grand finale the series deserves.
