"Chapter 27"

"Chapter 27" is a new film that recently debuted at the Sundance Festival to mixed reviews. The film stars 30 Seconds to Mars Jared Leto as Mark David Chapman, better known as the guy who killed John Lennon. There are 26 chapters in "The Catcher in the Rye", the book Mark Chapman was carrying when he was arrested immediately after the murder, hence the name of the film.

Leto apparently gained a lot of weight for the film, 67 in total if you can believe that. Even with that, many reviewers say that he is wooden and miss-cast. Personally i have never found him to be great at either acting or music but what do i know, he headlined warped last year...

Anyways, many Beatles fans are upset over this film, saying that this movie fulfills Chapmans prophecy that by killing Lennon he would be come famous. In fact many fans to this day refuse to say Chapmans name aloud to prevent the notoriety he was seeking.

I dont think i will be attending this film but i havent really made up my mind yet buddy. On one hand it sounds interesting, but the other its about a very sensitive subject. So...we shall see

Information about the film was gained from IMDB and a Fox News report on TV.

I think the best part about this whole thing is the fact that the "hardcore Beatle fans" refuse to say Chapman's name. you know what that reminds me of? Voldemort.
