    well there's one good thing about this movie

    if I keep an eye out for people who suggest it is in any way good I can easily assemble a list of people who are awful and/or insane

    It's great that you enjoy patting yourselves on the back so much, but can you wind back the hyperbole a notch or two?

    I would if I was being hyperbolic????

    Do you even get that you are doing the same thing as the character in this movie? "You like/do this = you are automatically the worst person ever"

    To steal from the film’s director during his post-SXSW screening Q&A, Bobcat Goldthwait’s God Bless America is a violent film about kindness. Because unlike other, lesser films to which this one will undoubtedly be compared — the likes of Kevin Smith’s Red State or (gasp) Uwe Boll’s Rampage – the violence is easily overshadowed by the simple, elemental philosophy behind Frank’s spree: he only kills those who deserve to die.

    you heard it here folks!

    a high school girl deserves to die

    fans of a tv show deserve to die

    a dude capturing evidence of Frank's 4 murders deserves to die!

    I've heard that the first Saw movie maybe has a decent message, maybe?

    No it wasn't about it having a message. Even in the first one the justification for putting his victims through that was super shallow (the doctor was kind of a jerk and the photograph photographed people without their consent for private investigation purposes).

    Saw 1 was okay because it was a decent mystery and the twist at the end was genuinely amazing. Also there's only really one scene of gore and they don't show that much of it. It was tense and scary and unexpected and at the time fairly unique.

    Then the sequels just iterated on all the worst things.

    the first saw movie is actually fine

    really bad acting, kind of a dumb hyper-serious script but the gore ain't the thing and it's actually pretty intriguing

    after that it goes right in the fucking toilet though

    In press throughout this film’s tour from its premiere at Toronto last year to this re-cut premiere at SXSW, Goldthwait has at times referenced Peter Finch’s speech at the end of Network as an inspiration. With God Bless America, he’s created the feature-length manifestation of Finch’s rant.

    i've never seen Network but i'm pretty sure people here have said that this character/rant is grossly misinterpreted

    No it seems like this guy had it right. You guys are both being pretty silly.

    It is insane to actually think that people who liked a shitty movie should be locked up. You do not know their reasons for liking it. They might just think it is stupid fun, and not actually think anybody should be murdered.

    Unless, of course, you are just doing "a thing"

    Granted, I think this movie is a piece of shit that nobody needs to see, but that isn't really my call to make.
