This one better be the one to get the SAW series a RAZZIE nomination! I've been waiting since 2007 for that! SAW 1 and SAW II were decent-quality horror films, SAW III was okay, then when it came to SAW IV, I was done with the series. It ranked at #23 on my Bottom 40 Films of 2007. SAW V ranked at #30 on my Worst of 2008, and I was appalled at how many people I asked saying it was their favorite film of that year! SAW VI got slightly better reviews and only #37 on my Bottom 40 of 2009, but now with SAW VII 3D, if this gets a nomination, it'll definitely scrape the deeper half of my Bottom 40 of 2010.

At long last, this tiresome series will finally end! But I still have this nagging feeling that Lionsgate will look at the 3-D surcharged profits and claim "Look at those numbers, we HAVE to make an 8th movie -- or a reboot!" 

Just let it go already!

I don't know about this one. Since the director of the last film is returning, there is some hope that this could be good. However, the marketing really pushes the 3D aspect, and in the worst possible way.  It's horrible, but that's probably due to the fact that it's the "final" one, so they have to go "all out."

Sign of hope? The only sign of hope is that this will be the final nail in the coffin for the torture porn genre, which has overstayed its welcome. Sure, it might have been considered "cutting edge" (no pun intended) in 2003/04, but now 6 or 7 years later, it's just old, stale, and needs to go away.

Lionsgate does not know how long we've waited to finally give the 'Saw' series what it deserves! 

Giving a 'Saw' movie a Razzie would also make up for the Razzie's mistake of nominating 'Blair Witch Project,' hailed by many as one of the greatest horror movies of all time, for Worst Picture.

I used to say this was my favorite horror franchise of all time. Now I'm having second thoughts. I mean none of the SAW films has ever been really scary, even though they shine in other aspects. 

SAW(7/10).Didn't look new, but it felt new. Writers Leigh Wannell and James Wan also did a good job acting and directing, respectively.

SAW II(5/10).The breakout here was director Darren Lynn Bousman.

SAW  http://www.razzies.com/forum/saw-3_forum150.html - III (5/10).At times it felt a little uninspired.I like the LOST aproach it was getting by having cameos and scenes you only understand by paying full attention to each movie.Wannell stop writing after this and you can tell why.

SAW  http://www.razzies.com/forum/saw-iv_forum228.html - IV (4/10).Half the twists were predictable.It felt more like LOST because it had the TV feeling of delaying in order for the franchise to continue being a franchise.

SAW  http://www.razzies.com/forum/saw-v_forum316.html - V (4/10).They replaced Bousman with David Hackl(the production designer?!).Just like 50% of LOST's 2nd season and 70% of the 3rd season, it felt like a filler TV episode. Very slow with not a lot of things hapenning and with an unbelievably predictable ending. And with less and less original characters.

I haven't seen SAW VI, but I'm looking forward to it and to this one. Since it's the last one, they'll hopefully tie up all loose ends.

Based on re-watching them, here are my ratings:  

Saw: 6/10 - It's really not that good of a story the more you watch it. 
Saw 2: 6/10 - This one is actually growing on me. I used to hate it. 
Saw 3: 6/10 
Saw 4: 7/10 - The best one in the series, IMO. 
Saw 5: 5/10 - More of the same. 
Saw 6: 6/10 - It's an improvement.

Usually, I would jump in with my timeless "gee, MWG gives another 6 or higher rating to another Razzie considered movie", but at this point, there's no reason to. It's a horror movie, so of course he's going to love it...

The one silver lining is that this is the end of the series.  That doesn't mean that this last one is gonna be any good though.  

RESPONSE from Head RAZZberry: If you honestly believe that, if SAW 3-D makes a tidy profit, Lionsgate is actually going to honor their "promise" that this is the last in the series (and never, ever make another SAW movie) you must be the audience member who starts the applause every night to bring Tinkerbell back to life...

The posters specifically said that this was 'The Final Chapter'.  Of course, they could be lying to us.  There are rumors of a Saw VIII floating around the internet.  If this does make a decent amount of money then they probably will make a Saw VIII.  And how abhorred in my imagination it is.  My gorge rises at it.

If for one moment, you are even slightly surprised when Lionsgate annouces there's going to be an 8th movie, then wow, you truly don't know how Hollywood works. There's a big reason why this last movie is in 3-D. After the last one bombed against "Paranormal Activity 1", they had to combat it with some kind of gimmick. Because, as Hollywood's favorite saying goes, "If you can't make it good, make it 3-D!"

I remember having nightmares after seeing a TWO AND A HALF MEN episode set in the future with the characters at the movies watching SAW 33!  

Even though there have been a lot franchises that continued after the supposed "final chapter," SAW is known for it's continuity through sequels. If this movie ties all loose ends (and I'm sure it will -- DR. GORDON will appear!)then there's no way they could make VIII. I mean they could, but it would have to be a "spin-off" and would therefor most likely flop. I sure hope Lionsgate learned their lesson when  http://www.razzies.com/forum/saw-vi_forum392.html - SAW VI  bombed.

I think by then, they would stop putting numbers in the title and would go with subtitles instead. Like "Saw: More Semi-Creative Ways To Kill People", "Saw: We Gave Up Trying 8 Years Ago", "Saw: The Search For More Money", etc.

The first "Saw" was a sleeper hit. Then Lionsgate got all greedy and started popping out one sequel after another, like a tennis-ball-lauching machine ... and each one sucked even more than the last.

Yes! Because as we all know, like "Leprechaun" and "Friday The 13th, Part X" before it, outer space is where all horror mvoies go to die! Just imagine the Jigsaw killer, murdering people with laser guarded, space aged traps ... in 4-D!

True the Saw franchise has had seven films released for the last seven years. However I believe as a fan of the franchise that Saw has taken itself seriously which most horror franchises fail to do. Look at Halloween it would make the sequels change the current story arc. Also Jaws started with two great films and finished with two dumb films. Nightmare on Elm Streets Freddy got turn from a dream killer into a parody of the Joker. Childs Play turned into a laughing stock of its former self. This may have not been the best Saw film created, but you have to admit the people who made the franchise took it seriously. The films had one story arc connecting them all and never once did it dismiss a sequel from its presence. I believe we may never see another horror franchise like this one that put its fans and story first.

Yes, I'll agree that "Saw" tried to be serious where as other franchises became self-parody. However, that doesn't change the fact that the series dragged on WAY too long, to the point everyone stopped caring and the news of a new installment was greeted with moans of "another one?!". Thankfully, the series is over ... for now.

Yeah, because there's never been a Worst Movie Series category ... probably because all movie series are now on-going for decades to come. Hell, the James Bond series alone has been around since the 60s, with over 20 movies, and it looks like every studio wants to top that record with their own series.

No, I'm saying EVERY studio wants a James Bond series, ie. a series of movies made over the course of many decades that will always make them money because every generation will grow up with the movies, and the studio will just reinvent the series every once and a while if the series gets stale. Only now we call them "re-imaginings" or "reboots".

I don't think it would go to the Bond series at all. It would more likely go to a horror movie series, probably for the first movie that "Nuked The Fridge" and every movie that came after it. Not all movies in a series are bad. At one point, they started out with a good movie, but then every movie after it got worse over time.  That's why I say studios need to leave their series alone once they have gone bad, because the series will never go back to its former glory.

Time to finish off Saw week.
 
The good:
 
Hoffman dies at the end: This really made me happy! If this didn't happen, then I would have given this a C-.
 
The bad:
 
Kevin Greutert: Greutert's good direction from the last one doesn't carryover here. Considering the dickering that LionsGate pulled-off with him, maybe it's his form of revenge.
 
The script: Unlike the past Saw scripts which seemed empty, this one seemed too full. There may be a reason for this though. Apparantly, there was supposed to be eight Saw movies in total, but Saw VI's flopping caused them to merge the two sequels into one.
 
Sean Patrick Flannery: Boondocks Saints star Flannery is flat here as Bobby Dagen, a guy who lied about surviving a Jigsaw trap. His performance is unusually stiff.
 
The ugly:
 
Costas Mandylor: On TVTropes, there's a trope called Villain Sue. A Villain Sue is a villain who seems unstoppable and appears to be loved by the writer(s). No term describes Hoffman better. He kills an entire police force with ease. Thankfully, Gordon pwns him at the end!
 
From what it seems, Paranormal Activity may become the new Saw. The difference? The Paranormal Activity movie, including the third one (B), get good reviews! Grade: C.
 
Next-up: A Nightmare On Elm Street 2!
