Chapter 27

If you liked John Lennon or the Beatles, are interested in his life (or more accurately, his death) you're gonna like this movie. It's a story about Mark David Chapman, the man who killed John Lennon.

Jared Leto played Mark David Chapman and did a good job in my opinion. Movie shows Chapmans plans, thoughts and feeling while waiting for John.

Before his trial began, Chapman was allowed to plead guilty to second degree murder and was sentenced to a prison term of 20 years to life despite being diagnosed as delusional and possibly psychotic. He remains incarcerated at Attica Correctional Facility in New York, having been denied parole four times.

Rest in peace John, we share a birthday and I Remember as well as Imagine!

I want someone to eat cheese with..

What do we really want in life? Money? Power? Material goods? Or really just someone to eat cheese with?
This is a nice one. Easy flow, quite funny, real-life type filming,.. you have to watch it "as is", not comparing it with similar movies or you might be disappointed. There's no "story" really, we follow a guy who has problems with women, work, always says the wrong thing at the wrong time, and substitutes it all with food.
The good thing with movies like this is, you can watch it again and again in the future. I have good memory when it comes to movies, so I usually remember "plots", "stories" and "bad guys" within a few minutes of a movie, if I watched it before, so it's no fun to watch anymore.
Jeff Garlin did ok and I always liked Sarah Silverman anyhow, so there's a plus for me as well.
I want someone to eat cheese with... yeah, who doesn't..
Anyhow, 7/10 for me.
