    • I was always a Jim Carrey fan until he became political. His antics in the past few years just appear to be attempts to keep his name out there, when I wouldn't have thought he would need to do so. He used to be a great punchline; now he's just a joke.

    • It's definitely part of it tho, and he does it best. He lacks in some other areas, but that can be said for other greats out there. He's just using what he's got and he uses it well.

      Redhollow MusicRedhollow Music9 kun oldin
  • I think that no matter what, The Mask is still emblematic of Carrey and his career. On the one hand, you have his take on Stanley Ipkiss, which you see in his serious films like Truman Show, The Majestic, and Eternal Sunshine; on the other you have the Mask, as in Ace Ventura, Dumb and Dumber, and Batman Forever. And you have the 'true nature' of the Mask from the comics, that filters into the Cable Guy, Number 23, and some of his more violent outbursts in the development of Man on the Moon. You'll see a mix of the latter two in both Me, Myself, and Irene as well as his take on Dr. Robotnik/Eggman. If The Mask were the last film he made, we'd call it a perfect capstone. As it is, it's a guiding light to his oeuvre. I wish that at some point in the future, he can join those two important, poignant, and valid parts of himself together. The lesson to take from the Mask isn't to get rid of the zany wild side of yourself, it's to embrace it. To let Stanley be a bit nuts sometimes without going to the extremes of the Mask. That's what I see in his Robotnik, and what I see in him as he's gotten a grip on who he finally wants to be again.

  • i will say this, for sure: people of fame, no matter where it comes from, or how it comes about. once they get so big, they will have an identity crisis. they will try ANYTHING to see if the person everyone knew them as, can change into something else. for better or for worse. it happens to basically EVERY giant star. but, eventually, they come back down. they stop the roles. and they become themselves again. i loved jim carry for who he was. and that isnt gone! its just...pushed beneath. for now.

  • Hot Take: While Comedian Jim Carrey is fine, I was blown away by his dramatic material and his awakening. I think his awakening is inspiring to me. As someone who has spent their life depressed, it was great to see him struggle so hard in the same way. I don't think he is crazy, I think he is actually really intelligent. The smartest people can act like idiots sometimes.

The jim c movie options are pretty limited now by all the different apps.
