Sometimes you just really want to be done with something, though, you know?  And although I’m still not quite there yet, this does at least get me to the bottom of my drummer’s box set:

Georges Melies Trick Films, 1897,  in which the celebrated cinematic pioneer discovers the value of ripping off one’s own earlier successes and the drawing power of a shapely behind…

Saw III (2006),  In which you can practically hear the Jigsaw Killer’s electronically distorted voice asking the filmmakers how much narrative integrity they’re willing to sacrifice to have a twist ending…

Saw IV (2007), In which the Saw series intrepidly Evel Knievels its way over a veritable squadron of sharks…

Saw V (2008), in which it redeems itself just the slightest bit after it’s already much too late…

Scream of Fear (1961), in which Hammer tries its hand at psycho-horror for the first time…

and…

Yeti: Giant of the 20th Century (1977), in which the Abominable Snowman impersonates King Kong.
