    Wow, all it took was an actual script, a decent motivation for why Jigsaw is doing his thing, three-dimensional characters (of varying degrees), Tobin Bell being in the movie, and some scenes really being shot outside, and hey, they just about have a motion picture on their hands!

    More thoughts coming on next week's 10.2 broadcast of On-Screen Live!

    The titular 'Greasy Strangler' looks like…
