    The Number 23

    All I can say is "WOW.....wowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowowWOW"

    I just got home a short while ago (1 am) from a late showing of The Number 23. It was by far the best film I've seen all year. To say the writing / directing was amazing would be a gross understatement. I never took my eyes off the screen. My girlfriend was actually getting kinda mad at me, half of a time I was leaning forward with my chin in my hand dead focused on the movie. like i said the writing / directing was brilliant, but the best part was Jim Carrey playing a serious role, and playing it DAMN WELL. Also, the use of colors, the reds and blacks especially, are fantastic, they really set a great tone for the film. One of the funnest parts of the film are looking for all the "23"s. Every now and then you'll see a license plate that adds up to 23, a building number that adds to 23, and sometimes they come flat out with a number 23. Some were hard to see, but if you got it, it was kinda like finally picking up on a Fightclub thing. One I picked up on was that one of the characters plays a sax in the movie. An F# alto sax (the one he plays) has.....23 keys. It's one of those things that just hits you and it makes you want to say"OMGOMGOMG that's 23!!!!"


    The movie from what I hear has been getting mixed reviews. Frankly I can't understand how. I never trust those idiots that do movie reviews for the papers. Most of them are just cynical. I'll be willing to bet they are just still blown away from Carrey doing something other than Ace Ventura. And c'mon ... It's a lot better than Joel Schumacher's work with Batman and Robin


    Two small side notes:

    This is Joel Schumacher's 23rd film....yup.

    And, Virginia Madsen plays Carrey's wife in the film, who is also going to be in the Astronaut Farmer, which I'm also very excited to see.

    ===============================

    So yeah, all and all it was an amazing film. Everyone needs to go see it ^-^

    from what ive seen it seemed insane by how they figured the number 23 was so special
    it reminded me of the whole Wii thing where people though
    VV I I, which meant it would come out October (5+5) 2nd (1+1)
    I don't even know why people thought that stupid shit was true...

    Everything in this signature except for this text was made by Wiired, he is my creator and almighty.

    But yeah The Number 23 seems cool. I wanna see if a Comedian can pull off such a film and I take Media in College so if it's cool I can recommend it to be seen in class when it comes out on DVD

    I'm sorry, but I can't take Jim Kerry seriously, I am used to his comedy films (ace ventura: pet detective is just a classic). But I might still check it out.

    I'm not sure Jim Carrey is the right choice for this film, but I did think The Truman Show and Eternal Sunshine were both great, so I might go see it.



    I never add friend codes.
