Movie Review Archive

Thank you for checking out my movie review archive. I'm in the process of transitioning to something else, so I will no longer post new reviews to this blog. In the meantime, I will keep these reviews archived; these are from the fall of 2008 to April 2011. Please watch this blog for more info and keep in touch (you can still find me on Facebook and Twitter). Here's to more great movies!

Saw VI

Rated R for sequences of grisly bloody violence and torture, and language, 90 minutes

Another Halloween, another bad "Saw" film

Horror film enthusiasts must salivate at this time of year, with new grisly horror films being released and re-released. Since 2004, when the low-budget and graphically violent horror film "Saw" became a huge hit, there has been a new "Saw" film every Halloween, and this year is no different, with the sixth installment of the popular horror film franchise featuring serial killer Jigsaw. Unlike the other "Saw" films, I'm not reviewing this one, since this one will be like all the other ones in this series: graphically violent, loads of blood, bad acting, writing and direction. There 'ya have it in a nutshell. Since these films are hugely popular, they don't screen them for critics since they'll likely be trashed and "Saw VI" was no different. If you must go see it, have fun with it, but this one I'll pass on, as I've seen it already 5 times. I've included the film's premise and a link for reviews and additional movie information.

Special Agent Strahm is dead, and Detective Hoffman has emerged as the unchallenged successor to Jigsaw's legacy. However, when the FBI draws closer to Hoffman, he is forced to set a game into motion, and Jigsaw's grand scheme is finally understood.
