Although I love 1 and 2. I much prefer 3 and 4.. Smile
5? Puh?


I'm going with C. Although you do protest too much over V Razz

They all have different styles so it's hard to gauge who's the best, but I liked the pacing of DLB's films.

And he's not going down with Repo, it was excellent ! I really liked DLB, but I found it was a bit too gory for nothing in Saw 4, some of the traps. the story was perfect though and the camera shots, but it was a bit too gory IMO. I prefer mental and intelligent, simple traps. But it's my opinion. I prefered Wan, then I'll say Hackl and DLB, but then the story of Saw 5 wasn't so good, so it depends. DLB did a freaking great job !!

Yeah c'mon Jigsy's right - Hackl did a great job with what he had to work with. I'm sure we're all envious of his talents and input he's given to the franchise.

I loved David !!! It's just well.. Poor David, he had the poorest script to deal with, and he did great with what he had... I mean, the story wasn't so good. But the way he directed the traps were very amaxing, wasn't it? Smile

I never put down david!!! He's my favorite director, maybe equal to Wan or higher than him I think. The way he did everything was great.

For the sake of this thread to NOT get deleted, let's go back to the reason this thread was posted:

James Wan was definately the best director. Hands down.

He was the first, original, and his 'dark' yet rapid pace, yet sometimes slow view of the film made it epic. The other directors had his film to figure out how to direct their films lol

Two thumbs up!

I loved the whole scene with Amanda. The green feel to it. I guess this makes me "artsy", but I also enjoyed the scene with Ivan. How when my lovely Rigg walked into the room, all of the red flashes when he looked at each of the pictures of the victims. It was symbolism. Like the red stood for Rigg's rage, maybe the green stood for how John originally viewed Amanda. Green sometimes symbolizes envy, but it can also symbolize illness. John possibly viewed Amanda as being sick, because she was so addicted to drugs.

I also enjoyed the quick pace of Saw 4, although upon the first viewing, everything that I was supposed to see somewhat eluded me, I was so excited to see Rigg as the staring character, that I didn't pay too much attention to the twists. lol

Beautifully said! I never really thought of what the colors symbolized.

Would make perfect sense of why Ivan's room was covered in red: rage.

What about the 'blue feel' of the Saw V movie? And the orangy-yellowish feel to Saw II?

I'd love to get your idea on what those colors mean.
