Saying something nice

I thought i had better counter-balance my Keira Knightly vitriol with something nice - a bit like a karma balance thing.
So all hail actress Shawnee Smith! I think she rocks in the Saw movies - I love how they've weaved her in and out of them, and I hope she will be in Saw 4.
Apparently she was in an X-Files episode - Firestarter, where phallic spores burst out of peoplle's throats - will have to re-check that episode out.
See, I can be nice.

That would be Firewalker.

You like the Saw movies? I don't know, it's torture-porn isn't it?

D'oh! Firewalker!
Ex X-Files Magazine editor gets it wrong!!!

i kinda like the Saw movies, but they are very brutal, and the last one freaked me out.

I don't know. It just strikes me as if there's just no intelligence to them, just titillation at people getting hurt. Definitely not my thing.

Mart said...

there is that. but they are well put together with some great twists and turns.
number three is really disgusting though.

I'm torn on the Saw movies... as you say, there are some really clever plot twists, but they've upped the torture porn to such ridiculous levels that I always feel grubby after watching them.

The Cube films were far superior, but much less successful.

absolutely. Saw 3 was tooooo much. whereas Saw 2 wasn't too bad - it was only the syringe scene that got to me.

Cube movies were great - altho I have no idea what they were all about lol

The syringe thing freaked me out too.
