PostSubject: Wikipedia Categorizes "SAW" Movies As "Vigilante Films"   Wed May 29, 2013 9:45 pm

Wikipedia has listed the "SAW" serial killer movies in their category as a "vigilante movie".
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Category:Saw_films
This is a series of movies where someone kidnaps, torture & kill people who have committed a crime or had something else to hide.
What about that stupid love triangle opening scene in "SAW 3D"?
Do you agree or disagree with Wikipedia?
I also wonder what Brad would think of this since he called "The Boondock Saints" a "serial killer movie" rather than a "vigilante movie"?

Yeahhh, I disagree with that classification. As I recall (before I gave up on the series), Jigsaw is punishing people who are wasting their lives; that occasionally includes people who are doing unethical stuff (like w/Cary Elwes' character) but he's lashing out because his own clock is winding down, it's entirely personal.

Now with BOONDOCK SAINTS I could see either argument. True, they're pretty much killing for pleasure if we're being honest about it, but their victims are criminals. It's sort of a greyer area.

Isn't Jigsaw's whole thing that he does what he does so people can appreciate the life they have, since his time on Earth is so fleeting?

1stly i don't think brad really gives a flying fuck what area 'the boondocks saints' are in


it my guess is a little bit of both really. as for the "SAW" series i haven't seen them all yet. but yes that is about the point of him killing people Frank. he found out he had Cancer and than he started decide what he can do to make people

apperiate life more than some do. course it's a fucked up and wrong way to do it but that's about it really. and it's funny that even though he's the vilian he really never killed anyone. he did create the traps though. but that's about it.

the people he captured had to decide who lives and dies. amanda though was a killer.

Id say no. to me a vigilant film is some thing along the lines of Death wish,Vigilante,Street fighter(the sunny chiba one),and such. Saw to me are just serial killer films. To be honest i am not a fan of the sawseries (or must torture porn in general) outside of the first one.

i'm not into torture horror either. but i love the "SAW" series. i don't really give a flying fuck about Hostel i've never seen any of them nor do i really want to either. also i just saw on IMDB news they are making a Centipede 3!! with Eric Roberts. WHY?


don't get me wrong he's a great actor if he's got a director that knows how to direct him. i've seen him give damn good performaces and really shitty ones too.

If you dig around the revision history of that page, it says:

Revision as of 19:52, 26 September 2010 (edit) (undo)
Eekerz (talk | contribs)
(Adding category Category:Vigilante films (using HotCat))


And if you look up HotCat:

HotCat is a JavaScript program that helps registered users easily remove, change and add categories to Wikipedia pages. It has a suggestions list that will propose existing categories for auto-completion.

So the person who added that category has most likely not even seen these movies.

you know i have a feeling that brad's Centipede Spoof he did last year wasn't it ? was prolly a LOT better than any of these films. at least that was funny. and you can tell they had fun making it.
