Subject: 6th Floor Blog goes to the movies: Saw 4
Possible spoilers ahead for Saw 4, you have been warned.
Sara, Ann, Frank, Billy and Scott are walking back from the theater after seeing Saw4. “Well, that was gruesome.”
“It’s to be expected in a Saw movie.”
“The timeline of this movie was a little confusing. I couldn’t tell if the last scene was supposed to be the beginning of the movie, or the end..”
“I was thinking end. But after the first scene.”
“Yeah. I think so too.”
“So this movie took place at the same time as the third one then right?”
“I barely remember the other ones. I think it would’ve been a little less confusing had we watched them before we went to see this.”
“There did seem to be a lot of references to the other movies. And the other characters. I think we were supposed to recognize most of those names. Especially the other officers.”
“Plenty of gore though. I liked the first game, where the junkie had to get out of the chair.”
“Yeah. That one was good. It helped explain the beginning of the story.”
“Right. It was the fourth movie that took place during the third movie, after the third movie, and before all the movies. Quite a fucked up timeline.”
“So I assume there is going to be a fifth movie too?”
“Certainly seems like it. But I’m not sure how exactly. I guess there is some sort of bridge story to connect the fourth movie to the others..”
“This movie rocked. Way better than two or three. Could be that I liked it better than the first. It’s been a while since I’ve seen that flic though, so it’s hard to tell. I'd definitely go See Saw5. ”
"There's a playground a couple of blocks that way with a seesaw if you're really set on that."
"Are you going to make that joke every year Billy? It's getting old."
"If they stop making Saw movies, I'll stop making the joke, how's that?"
"Terrific. Just terrific." Ann says, unlocking the door the apartment as they arrive home.
