Saw II

Saw II

it's totally ridiculous to watch tobin bell sit in a chair for an hour and a half while donnie wahlberg walks back and forth breathing heavily and a bunch of idiots stumble through hallways somehow not even remotely capable of trying to open doors or work together, but it rules anyway. whole thing is so just so grimy and odious and stellar. like the first film, i do feel like this one is fairly tame compared to the later franchise offerings, but that needle pit scene is still so devastating and hits me unlike anything else, and xavier is an alltime abhorrent horror character. i'm still a fan of the ending as well and i love how this film interacts with the first one in neat ways. i do still think it was a mistake to immediately place jigsaw as a completely present human character this early in the franchise, though, regardless of how much i think tobin bell rules. one thing i never noticed before that distracted the hell out of me though is i swear to god tobin bell and john cusack have the same exact mouth, and every time jigsaw spoke in this it was weirding me out because i kept thinking there was some weird deepfake shit going on. i genuinely cant unsee it. theyre the same
