Hoop-Tober 2.0 - Film 9/31
Fuck knows why I decided Saw V would be a good idea to watch for Hoop-Tober.
Sure, this is my first time watching it. Sure, I've seen the first 4 Saws. But, you know what? This just doesn't live up to it's predecessor sequels. Sequels which weren't that great in the first place.
As I'm writing this, I'm only at the 30 minute mark. I won't publish this until it's finished though. Just in case what, already looks rather bad, actually manages to prove me wrong.
Update: 1 hour, 12 minutes in:
The only way this could be remotely saved from being more than just 1 and 1/2 stars is with a decent twist.
The film's finished.
1 and 1/2 stars.
