How come Jigsaw doesn't let them cherish their life, so many people die throughout the movie, and so few escape.  If it's cherish your life then why do they have to keep upping the gore.
I see the world Lucius Hunt, just not the way you see it.

what do you mean "why doesnt jigsaw LET them cherish their life?" he MAKES them cherish their life..that's the whole point. Those who don't really cherish their life are the ones who die. He doesnt kill anyone..he just puts them in a position where they have to save their own life if it is really worth it to them.
See the villain's larger eyes insinuating a just-off-normal perspective on how they see the world? I see signs Lucius Hunt; just not as you see dead people. I am so very happy we saw..each other, and no I will not tell you what color love is. Stop asking.

This is true for Saw and maybe Saw II (I have partially seen Saw and never seen Saw II),but not for Saw III,I'm sure.So my theory about the pretext to make another splatter movie become stronger ;D
Then if we consider that Saw IV starts with an autopsy... ::)

That opening scene was just sick, don't know why people enjoy that.  It's just a bit onf an oxy-moron when he want people to cherish life but he doesn't because he kills so many people throughout the films.

Jigsaw never actually killed anyone. They all killed themselves.

yeah, but he was offereing them the chance to change their life. No one who survived was ever the same again. (that one girl went back to her vice, but she still valued her life more than she had in the beginning) it's a lot like that scene in fight club where they threaten to kill that convenience store clerk, so he sees the value of spending time with his family.

I don't mind the character,but the movie itself,that is structured like a slasher movie.

ok you havbe a point there about the movie having slasher elements in it (some sadistic killers) but the main goal of the protagonist is not to murder.

I can see what your saying Namaste and I dissagree with you about Jigsaw, but it is still a slasher movie, that's how it's classified.

I wouldn't have called it a slasher...


Does everyone hate me now?  ;D


Lol well I suppose when it comes to genre classification it's pretty much the same as with music - as long as something displays elements of the genre then you can justify it.

I'm just saying I usually associate slasher with the killer actually chasing his victims and killing them by hand (with a knife rather) and generally less focused on physical torture. More pyschological.

But w/e I don't even watch horrors. Except for one of course ;D (oh that's 6th sense btw...just incase anyone was gonna' tell me 'The Village' was a horror or something. Everybody knows that's an action comedy ;))

I'm not attracted to slasher films either. I don't find it enjoyable.
