I've seen only the first one. But need to catch up on the saw series and also Paranormal Activity. Never saw even one PA film. The PA series has received mixed reviews. Kind of reminds me of Blair Witch, half of the people love it and the other half hate it.
The only ones I really like are one and three, though the second one isn't bad. Once you get past the third film, the series really takes a ridiculous turn. The final one was pretty silly, it was good for some mindless gore, but not much else.
Did anyone else marathon the series already or will this month at some point? I spent all day yesterday watching them all in a row, had fun. Always an annual October tradition for me to set a day aside to view them all.
I've had a marathon to watch them all but that was sometime last year when I was sick. Although I was laying on the couch feeling like I was going to croak I enjoyed watching them all back to back. If I had the time I would love to watch them all again. I know a lot of people didn't like the seventh, but I liked it thanks to Sean Patrick Flanery being in it. He just made it that much more enjoyable for me.
It was announced not too long ago that an eighth film was planned, which isn't a huge surprise. I wonder if it'll be a sequel or a reboot? I'm not too opposed to a reboot done right, since the original storyline was sort of stretched thin and a fresh start could be what revives the series.
Though I enjoy most of the sequels and even prefer the second to the original, I always wonder if Saw had been a stand-alone film with no sequels. It's still quite a different film from the subsequent movies and works as a seperate film.
It's been a while since I last watched them. I always set a day aside and marathon them all in a row every October as part of my Halloween-time viewing. Fun to do if you've got the time and patience for it.
