The Number 23

You do know what day it is today right? 3/14 or 3.14, the day of Pi. According to Pi fans to meet March 14 (3.14, get it?), It is about a curious group of people with an almost religious zeal for a mind-numbing string of numbers. Actually one number, made up of a chain that is known — so far — to be more than one trillion digits long. They are the acolytes of the church of pi. And once a year many of them gather to talk about pi, rhapsodize about it, eat pi-themed foods (actual pie, sure, but so much more), have pi recitation contests and, just maybe, feel a little less sheepish about their unusual passion.

Along with that, I’ll found this: The Ten Coolest Numbers (from Digg).

Anyway, I had saw these links after watching The Number 23 with CDMCC. The movie was okay, but I don’t think the movie gave the audience enough clues to figure out the ending, which came pouring out like a fire hydrant once the valve was opened. It’s basically about a man who encounters a book talking about the number 23 and starts seeing similarity in this life and begins to obsess about the number himself.

  1. I wouldn’t say it’s purely by coincidence. Often times I pick movies to watch based on their IMDb rating. I hardly ever watch any movies rated 6 or below and I typically also give movies a rating within 6-8, unless it was super good or super bad. When I type up my blog entry, I enter my personal rating first, before fetching the others, hoping to not get biased.

    Going through my past ratings, here are the comparisons.

    IMDb : Mine – Movie
    6.3 : 6 – Number 23
    7.2 : 8 – The Host
    6.7 : 7 – The Motel
    8.5 : 9 – Pan’s Labyrinth
    5.8 : 6 – Heavenly Mission
    7.9 : 6.5 – This Film Is Not Yet Rated
    8.6 : 8.5 – The Lives of Others
    7.7 : 8 – Brick
    8.1 : 8.5 – Children of Men
    8.1 : 8 – The Prestige
    8.3 : 7 – An Inconvenient Truth
    8.1 : 8.5 – Casino Royale
    6.2 : 6.5 – Miami Vice
    7.1 : 6 – Highlander
    7.0 : 6.5 – Rob-B-Hood
    8.1 : 7.0 – Clerks II
    5.5 : 6 – You Me and Dupree
    5.9 : 6 – Nacho Libre
    6.9 : 6 – Click

    It appears the difference between my ratings and IMDb has a range of 0.1 to 1.3.
