So I’m on twitter the other day and this guy I occasionally talk to informed me this 1997 classic..yea I say classic its 20 years old,is now on Netflix. (I will get to the other movie when I have time to read a movie)
Cube is essentially the movie that started the whole Saw movie thing. Don’t believe me? Go watch it. Or just read the general plot.
The movie starts off with people waking up not knowing where they are, with people they don’t know. Quickly they discover they are free to roam their general area but must find a way out of the building they are in. The building is square rooms, that all look basically the same of various colors with numbers near all the hatch doors.
I am sure you are wondering where the Saw part comes in. Well certain rooms have various traps set up to kill you, for example one of the escape experts gets his face burned off with a sort of acid spray.
Yes I did say escape expert. There is also an ex cop, a doctor what can only be described as an idiot savant and an office worker that designed the shell of the cube itself.
Added to all this is their struggle to decipher the connection between the traps and the numbers between rooms and how to get out of this death trap. It isn’t hard to see how this could be the father of the Saw movies, best wishes and may the gaming gods bring you glory.

I love Cube! This is what Saw should be!
First time i saw this movie a friend brought it to my house. I had no clue what i was watching but i fell in love instantly.
Yea it’s a little crazy when it comes to the prime numbers stuff.
The movie is actually far deeper in terms of how thought provoking it is than it seems at first as well. The chick being paranoid about big brother and the office worker talking about projects being continued by people that don’t even know why it were started in the first place. Makes you wonder how many things world governments finish and don’t even know why they were ever started. Every time I watch I picture some building being finished and some Governor or something saying great its done…wtf did we build this?
