  • Saw 2004

    ★★★½ Rewatched 21 Oct, 2014 6

    Since it's October I figured that I'd jump on the bandwagon and watch some horror films this month. Given my incredibly tight schedule as of late I'll probably only fit in this and You're Next.

    I can't remember if I saw this is theaters back in '04. I've only seen Saw I-III and I know that I saw Saw III in theaters. It really amazes me that this franchise went on as long as it did (or is it still…

    ★★ Watched 12 Oct, 2014

    Whoa. That was the best thriller I've seen in a long time. I can't even remember a film that "had me thrilled" more than this one; I was literally clenched for 90%+ of this film.

    Unfortunately, when I arrived to the theater someone was in the seat that I had bought for myself so I just snagged another. But then, of course, the rightful owner of that seat came. By this point, George Clooney was regaling the audience with his…
