ok im banning myself from tumblr until im settled in the new place cause i keep procrastinating too much i will see you allllllll in like. a week
hey guys i got pretty grim medical news recently and im hoping to get some money for future medical emergencies. im disabled and cannot work, so anything helps.
so an update: I ended up in the hospital out of state from where i live, and im afraid insurance won’t cover it. especially bc i had to call an ambulance as well. so i really need money now.
The truth is, initially the money I was gathering was for a surgery that could potentially save my life. Because the news I got was that I’m dying and there’s not much else they can do for me. My pancreas will keep getting infected over and over and necrotizing until it kills me. The surgery would maybe cure me, but it has a high fatality rate as it’s a fairly new procedure. If I don’t decide to do the surgery, the money would go to my funeral costs to help my family.
Please, I need help, now more than ever. And I’m sorry my mutuals had to find out like this.
Saw I-III or Saw IV-VII?
probably the toughest question on the list………….. 1-3 has amanda, my beloved, and a lot of my favorite characters. 4-7 on the otherhand has motherfucking atlus himself, the hoffinator, singlehandedly carrying the franchise after he got everyone else killed lol. i think as a whole i like 1-3 more mainly because wife <3 and cause overall i can sit through all three no problem, but 4-7 has a lot of scenes i sometimes just skip. 7 singlehandedly brings the rank down on its own
hmm i think i will pull an all nighter since i am stupid and literally wasted my entire day
when strahms corpse flops down after getting squished into an accordion. lol
I know misandry is fun and all but “men are born evil and women are pure and incapable of doing harm 😌🥰” gender essentialism still leads to transmisogyny ultimately even though you include trans men and women in it
It’s the kind of thinking that leads to the idea that afab = safe and amab = dangerous and one of the reasons why amab non binary people and trans women are still shunned within queer spaces because of perceived “maleness” being treated like a poison you can’t fully “cleanse” yourself of like essentialism is still bad when repackaged as inclusive of trans people and something that can be exploited to turn people who aren’t transfem against us lol
saw saw saw saw asaw saw saw saw saw saw saw saw saw saw
the fact people rank saw 5 below jigsaw (2017) does, in fact, make me irrationally angry
For the Saw ask: 4, 6, 7, 12, 19 c:
Which side character did you want to see more of?
fisk… my man fisk… the most underrated cop-side character. he survived simply by minding his own gddamn business. i wanna believe he became like chief of police after literally everyone else died. oh also i wish brit from saw 5 had shown up alongside mallick in saw 7. :^(
Least favorite film?
Jigsaw… i hate modern horror reboots. im sick of em. every scene in this film felt like it was only in there to be put in the trailer. the terrible bait-and-switch that even the production team did not probably care about considering the fact that there are so many inconsistencies in there. straight up like retconning kramer’s philosophy. ham-fisted new apprentice who was too busy killing civilians in afghanistan which is why he only showed up now (and somehow just feels like they wanted him to be Dexter). characters that are somehow more frustratingly dumb and way less characterized than previous victims. id be into the redhead lady cause shes hot as hell if she wasnt a true crime otaku. theres a lot more truly i could go on forever, but at least the only reason i rank it lower than saw 7 is cause at least gordon came back in 7 and i could simply close my eyes for the rest of it.
Favorite trap from your least favorite film?
already answered 👍 (leg wire trap)
Jigsaw or Spiral?
Spiral was honestly very fun it does not get bogged down by trying to Be A Saw Film and really developed its own identity while still having enough to make you think, yeah okay this is a saw film. i think the traps were fine but im someone firmly of the belief that “bad” traps make good characterization for the killer, and schenk’s motivations explain why they were bad–cause he explicitly wanted them to die. also cause cops are dumb as shit. zeke was a compelling character, he definitely got “jaded cop punished for being good” down pat. i love horror thats written by comedians and i love horror with big social commentary (candyman is one of my all time faves so of course i loved this one). the ending made me feel insane and gave me the kind of feeling the original films did that jigsaw did not give me. i only watched it once but i am looking forward to watching again.
Which ending twist surprised you the most?
probably the first one honestly. i had never experienced a saw film before so when i watched saw 1 i audibly said “holy SHIT” when kramer stood up from the floor lmao. i had avoided spoilers from p much the entire franchise for nearly a decade but that first film is what made me fall in love
for some reason on the wiki page for schenk they compare him to hoffman to say that “schenk kills for justice but hoffman does it for personal gain” which i gotta say-where? i feel like thats really unfair to hoffman’s character and also just straight up ignores the characterization present in the game/trap designs themselves. i think the only time hoffman ever actually killed for personal gain was seth baxter’s trap.
but the rest of them–he, unlike jigsaw, very likely changed rigg’s game to be about justice. yes, it is about rigg, but the point is that hoffman would have known that rigg could not let go (also, jigsaw was busy overseeing amanda’s game and also dying). so who did he put in the traps? people he had already judged as guilty.
the same is true for saw 5–if they could not work together (which, based on hoffman’s very negative view of humanity, he probably counted on it), they would be punished. saw 6 is literally about hoffman punishment and justice, regardless of kramer’s intent in the game. and even that could be used to argue that kramer’s intent isnt strictly about rehabilitation, either. (after all, why was his first victim someone who also killed a family member? everyone in saw is a hypocrite.)
finally i do wanna add that hoffman wanted to be jigsaw. he might have had a different philosophy than kramer, but i believe hoffman can still be considered a vigilante of sorts all the same. after all, why the fuck did he not simply stop killing after kramer died? he wouldve been free. he couldve stolen the evidence from the baxter trap, destroyed it, and been completely untied from any threat to his identity.
why did he follow jigsaw’s plans after kramer died???? why did saw 6 happen AT ALL? saw 5 was clearly mostly designed and planned by hoffman judging by his own diorama and the fact only hoffman could have known about the fire cover-up from access to police records (kramer at the most probably planned the concept of a game requiring teamwork or had worked together w hoffman and thus made the tapes in advance). but saw 6 literally was just some shit kramer had left in his will-to JILL. kramer wanted JILL to ensure it was carried out. but hoffman took over instead. what did he possibly have to personally gain from killing off some people he had likely never interacted with but had harmed kramer and countless others.
maybe schenk is more morally justified in his work but overall they are characters with similar motivations–to target and punish people who deserve to be punished. and lets remember they probably both are more justified than kramer himself in some cases (see: the original reverse bear trap, flammable jelly trap, razor wire trap, knife chair)
