    Eh, its entertaining. I'll give the Saw franchise that much. Mrs. Benz will at least keep my eyes on the screen during non-torture moments. (She didn't do to shabby in Rambo)

    cora1984: you are a spamming f*g and should be sent to one of those underdeveloped african nations with really tall singles to work your whor*-craft. F*GG-OT.

    I'm a big fan of SAW series.
    and Julie Benz is hot on that awesome TV series DEXTER.
    So I think she'd be a good addition to the fifth installment.
    Although I would hate to see her hot face and hot body gettin' tortured, which I assume that's what would happen in SAW V.

    Actually, I loved the first and second wasn't AS good but still good, the 3rd was probably the worst out of the 4, and I thought the last one, the 4th was amazing, it went right back to the 1st ones meanings. It's about time they went back to the Jigsaw's message/moral. These movies are pretty intriguing regardless, you are always wrong at the end lol. You can't guess the endings besides that they won't be happy ones lol.

    I've only seen the first one, and that was good, but if they keep going on with these, it'll get really stupid. But like marc says, there's 6 planned. It'll be even more idiotic if they do more after seven. Watch them make a "Saw: the Beginning" or something lame like that

    This is getting a bit out of hand...The last one wasn't that great even though it made a lot of cash and some hardcore fans liked it. I hope this one can make up for the previous one...
