My 2 cents on The Number 23 (I thought all weekend about what I would write) – *MILD SPOILERS*
The scenario had some weak points, no doubt about that but the movie managed to balance itself with a very beautiful cinematography. But of course, you all know what my priority was and I wasn’t disappointed by his performance, I never am! Ahem, about Fingerling, I’ve had this sudden urge to lick that back until I could taste the ink and I considered a few ways to make him forget about Fabrizia, and I’m not talking about cooking him dinner! Oops, I didn't write that, did I?
So I’ll see the movie again this week and I’ll have to watch it in French next weekend when I’ll bring my mother along.
Well, I've actually seen this movie twice because I thought it to be very good. I liked the twists and turns and for myself was unable to depict who the murder was. I thought the script was well written and the preformances especially Jim's went with my expectation of what he is capable of...I am pretty sure in the acting world there isn't a lot this man isn't able to do.
I know what you all mean seeing the number afterwards...left the parking lot of the theater and what did I drive right by??? A local gas station with the numbers 2.39...another person had the license plate with 23 something or other. I liked...no absoultely one hundred percent loved this movie...Eternal Sunshine and 23 are my all time favorite Jim movies. I like the serious Jim... funny Jim is great too, but serious Jim...damn! It's hot!
"No day but today!" ~RENT~
I thought the film was great. Jim has proved once and for all that he is more than capable of acting in a serious role. Visually, the 'film noir' characteristics were brilliant, very dark and gritty.
I don't care what the critics say, I think that the acting was second to none. The story had enough twists and turns to keep most people guessing until the end.
Most 'professional' critics and the acadamy alike will never give a Jim Carrey performance a good review simply because of his history as a comedian. And that is wrong.
This film was a thoroughly enjoyable film. Whatever flaws people think they find, who cares. Show me a film without any flaws. And what are these supposed plot holes. I would like to know..
That reminds me, I'm positive that many people in the audience expected yet again another comedy, a '+13 for violence' laugh riot.
The movie starts off quietly and Walter is being funny, not hilarious, just cute, but some people were laughing just way too loud. I remember the same thing happening with The Truman Show, people we’re looking too hard for jokes. The ones who still think Jim is just a comic actor need to climb out from under their rock.
you gotta see it at least twice, We're not critics, just punters and if you wanna really enjoy it you'll need to leave your critics hat at the door! .......the second time i got so much more from it......i saw past the surface humour and got what they were trying to portray.....whether or not there are flaws, if you look beyond them you'll see it in a whole new light.
Meh. Last weekend I saw Hannibal Rising and no matter how hard I wanted to love the movie, I just couldn't say it was good at the end. There were many, many flaws. And the fact that Gaspard Ulliel his performance was more then good and I absolutely enjoyed him having those Lecter-moments, didn't change a thing.
So, "leave your critic-hat at the door" is something I would say to "protect" our beloved Jim from any bad buzz around his latest film. But in my head I know that in the end, it's just the wrong thing to say, totally. If it's enjoyabel and just ok, I will appriciate it for being ok. But if it ain't good, it ain't good. It's that simple.
(besides that, it's a nice way to put it, fluffy )
Now, this weekend I will finally see 23.
