The “Saw” series is the best horror franchise out there, I hope there will be a part 8…

I just watched all 7 “Saw” films just recently on BluRay and WOW!!!!!!!!!! I’m fuckin’ blown away with all of them! Loved every film! I think “Saw” is easily the best horror franchise around but is “Saw 7” seriously the last one? I sure hope not! I think I’ve read somewhere that Lionsgate studios is planning a Saw 8 so I hope it’s true. They should keep these series going.

The reason I was impressed with these series ’cause they are so different than any other horror franchise out there. We have “Friday the 13th”, “Halloween”, the Chucky Movies, the Freddy movies, etc. but they all have the same boring plot and same boring story. Not with the “Saw” movies, though. Each film has a plot and story. I thought the storytelling in the “Saw” movies was pretty intelligent and thought provoking. These movies can get you thinking for sure.

As I was watching these movies, I’ve come to a realization that Jigsaw (or John Kramer played by the great Tobin Bell) is more of a hero than a villain, in my opinion. How? Well, Jigsaw only took down those who were bad people. He took down criminals, drug dealers, rapists and all that stuff. He also took down those who doesn’t appreciate life, doesn’t deserve a life. As the films get going, you would learn more about John Kramer in the sequels. You would learn why he started the Jigsaw games. I don’t wanna spoil things to you but lets just say that John Kramer was a broken down guy who was upset about something. It had something to do with his wife. The stories had all kinds of twists and turns and shockers.

Jigsaw is also the king of movie quotes. He said some pretty epic quotes such as “Live or die, make your choice”, “Let the game begin”, “Hello (name here), I want to play a game”, etc.

I hope they keep these movies going. I don’t want remakes or reboots ’cause that would destroy this franchise. Could they bring John Kramer back somehow? Keep in mind, this is horror so I’m sure there’s always a way to figure out a way to bring Kramer back for one more movie.

Tobin Bell is a phenomenal actor though. Now I understand why these movies are so popular and most of them did well in the box office too. I’ve always been a big fan of Cary Elwes, he’s been a favorite actor of mine for a pretty long time. While all 7 movies are great, the first one with Cary and Danny Glover will always be a classic! I’m glad I finally got around to seeing the rest of them.

Cary Elwes writing memoir about the filming of “The Princess Bride”…

Actor Cary Elwes who starred as Westley in the film, “The Princess Bride”, is writing a memoir about the making of the film titled, “As You Wish: Tales From The Princess Bride” and it’s confirmed for a release date sometime in the Fall of 2014. The film also starred Robin Wright, Christopher Guest, Mandy Patinkin, Wallace Shawn, Andre The Giant, Fred Savage, and of course, Billy Crystal.

Read more on the story, here.

Now, here’s a book that I can’t wait to read!!! “The Princess Bride” is one of my favorite films of all time. I can’t wait to read what it was like to work with Andre. I’m sure Cary will have a lot of interesting and funny stories to tell about Andre.

Cary’s a talented actor. I liked him in the first, “Saw” movie and have seen him in other films.

The Brock’s Horror Film Pick #15: Saw (first one, only)

I’m not really a big fan of SAW, but I think the first one was really good. I only saw like, the first three flicks, and haven’t been following the rest of ’em. Seen one, seen them all. Cary Elwes and Danny Glover together in this movie is gold. I think that’s what I loved the most about it. The sequels after this one kind of ruined it for me. I thought the first one had pretty masterful storytelling, though. A horror movie that actually had a plot, and not just about blood & guts!

I’m not much of a Saw fan. I loved the first one a lot though, I just didn’t like any of the other ones. As long as Cary’s coming back, I’ll go see it. He’s a great actor and very underrated too. Don’t know who Cary Elwes is? You might remember him as Wesley, the man in black, from the “Princess Bride” movie, and he was also in “Shadow of the Vampire”.
