Why are you shocked? Plenty of people like it and it's after the watershed.

Why are you shocked? Its after 9. Yabu to watch it though, there are nonrwal storylines in them and the acting is crap.

I'm recording it. Love a scary film to do the ironing to.

if its the very first one YABU.

for all the sequels YANBU on the grounds that they are just crap.

Is number 5 the last one? If so then it's shit

I'm not keen on the SAW films, I think they're rubbish, but I thought "what if Channel 5 showed Tokyo Gore Police, would I be shocked then?"

My answer is no. I'd be surprised if it was uncut, but not shocked. TV should cater for all tastes, so long as no one is hurt and it doesn't support criminal activity, anything goes.


ScarletLady02 Sun 24-Feb-13 23:34:52's on late, and I've seen far worse on film 4 (Ichi the Killer etc).

SAW is a bit shit anyway in my opinion....gore for the sake of it and no humour. I need a bit of a laugh with my gruesomeness (if that makes sense - I love trashy zombie gore)

SchroSawMargeryDaw Sun 24-Feb-13 23:40:28

Now Tokyo Gore Police was a bloody weird movie.

Alliwantisaroomsomewhere Sun 24-Feb-13 23:41:23

It is CRAP! Gory but just shit gore! So bad. But here I am watching to the bitter end.

Hmmmmm.... I was just a but surprised to see movies like this being aired.

I humbly accept that I am BU!

aldiwhore Sun 24-Feb-13 23:56:53

Yes. It is isn't it Schro grin I'm still not sure whether I loved it for it's craziness or loathed it for the same reasons.

I hate horror films but I think the first one is far more of a psychological thriller, it's very clever really.

BegoniaBampot Mon 25-Feb-13 00:12:34

Hate all this torture porn stuff or whatever they call it.

DP is watching it now I am hiding have gone to bed because I am scared tired.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Mon 25-Feb-13 00:19:35

Oooh I love the SAW movies.
The people have to make a choice and there's a retribution for the actions and choices.
And everyone gets killed in different nasty ways.

I don't really get the shoot and slash for no reason films.
Or ones like Jeepers Creepers- don't go down that tunnel..... oh. Too late hmm

I wanted to go on the Thorpe Park ride but the queue was 2+ hours.

70isaLimitNotaTarget Mon 25-Feb-13 00:21:12


Can't remember which one but there was a man in an abbatoir pit. And all the pig carcasses being dropped on him. Drowned in decomposing pig guts.
Gross (specially as I'm a vegetarian)

SchroSawMargeryDaw Mon 25-Feb-13 00:27:38

Aldi I am the same, DP got me to watch it when we first got together by telling me that I will love it because I loved Ichi the Killer. confused

I did really like it but I couldn't help thinking that I had been slipped some acid or something as no movie could be that strange.

However I was wrong because after that he introduced me to the movie Uzumaki...

ComposHat Mon 25-Feb-13 00:51:38

I am aware of the Saw films reputation and choose not to watch it.

I do worry about people less stable or less middle class than me watching it. Such as Builders or Geordies. That sort of person should stay well away.

AnyFucker Mon 25-Feb-13 00:59:07

Oh dear, I am married to a Geordie Builder

That's me deaded then shock

StrawberryTot Mon 25-Feb-13 01:01:52

Any well put it this way, I wouldn't be buying any under-ripe bananas in your situation.
