I watched all 8 Saw movies over the span of Monday/Tuesday. Ready to moralize.

I haven't read anything on it but based solely on the movie, Snowpiercer was not good. It barely examined the class disparities and just focused on how shitty it was in the back of the train in favor of trumped up suspense scenes.

Snowpiercer is great, especially if you watch it as a sequel to Willy Wonka.

They barely covered how they got to where they were and only covered most of the backstory with shitty flashback storytelling. They almost completely glossed over the fact that they resorted to fucking cannibalism by saying "yeah I almost ate the baby who became my bff". It was fine for entertainment but I would never call it good.

It's a TNT/USA rewatch movie, not an AMC rewatch movie.

Snowpiercer is great but fine I guess nobody is up for talking about Saw. We'll just see who is ready to play the game.

Saw 2 is the best Saw movie and Donnie Wahlberg is a tremendous actor

Saw 6 is the best Saw movie. Absurd to say it's Saw 2.

And if it's anti North Korea I'm not on board towels

I think the concept of the purge is pretty dumb, but fuck it, it's a good enough time. I'm down to watch that one.

The concept of a purge is amazing, I don't know what you're talking about.

I don't think purging would lead to a crime free America the rest of the year. It's a fun concept for a movie and is a great device, but I have to actively suspend my disbelief that America has 0% unemployment and no crime thanks to the purge.

but you don't have to suspend your disbelief for the creation of a purge part of the story universe?

I did at first but know I fully believe people in the U.S. could vote in a Purge Party.

fair enough; we're about two presidential cycles from the GOP being a purge party.

You do realize that ultimately the concept of the purge is solely about erasing the lower classes in short supply and hoardng the wealth upwards, right? That's a big focus of the movies! Apparently it was too subtle in the first 3 so they just said "fuck it" and showed it to you in the 4th one (great movie).

I like Saw, but watching that entire run in a two day feat is not something I'd wish on anyone. They get realllll bad.

Enjoyed Those Who Wish Me Dead if anyone wants a mean 90s like thriller that's only 94 minutes on HBO Max.
