Just saw this.  Don't know what to say... someone go see it so we can talk about it.

I enjoyed it.  It got a lot of bad reviews and I guess I can see where they were coming from.  The ending wasn;t the ending I'd have preferred, since the first 3 quarters really were freaking me out.  But oh well, I wa shappy I saw it and the ending was by no means horrible to me, just not my first choice.

I'm mixed about it.  I feel they didn't know where they wanted to go.  I liked the JC character from the novel and thought he was a much more interesting character and I would've rather had the movie been a det. story with that character solving the crime of the #23.  Just my opinion.

Spoilers, by the way...don't read if you haven't seen the movie.

I love weird movies and was hoping there was something magical/supernatural/etc. about the book....though I guess you could count fate in that category.
