They've made seven Saw movies? sgsjghsgdf

If they could do that then why couldn't we have had, say, better adaptations of His Dark Materials (a.k.a. The Golden Compass and sequels) or the Narnia books? D;
I would say the Narnina movies are pretty awesome, rather different from the books at times, but they're still fun. The Golden Compass was...whoamama that movie had problems right from the start. I think the director even came out and pretty much disowned The Golden Compass now for what he feels was too much executive meddling thanks to the controversy over the book itself. It's something the studio should have been prepared for, but I think they just say a successful book series and wanted to capture some of that Harry Potter book to movie magic.
