V. For Vendetta

jesus aitch christ

Not a comforting movie by any means.

I'm not entirely certain it matters whether you read the graphic novel ahead of time or not.

The basic idea of freedom against tyranny with a side dish of the end justifies the means. [shakes head].

I can't help it, but the icon makes me smile.

You know what? I dislike it when a movie theatre punches the volume especially on an action movie. But this time I was wishing they had punched it more during the 1812th. I wanted to feel that piece in my very bones. It would have made the scenes more effective.

There's nothing like the 1812th done with cannons and/or fireworks.

One thing - they make the point that the ends do *not* justify the means quite elegantly, in my opinion, with the line regarding monstrosity and monsters.

very true. I was kind of going by V's and the government's position on it, not necessarily the author's position. I liked how they condensed it into it's essential parts. They managed to humanize V a little more, while making the government less human

J didn't want to see it with me. He said he didn't know if it was going to be a good movie. I told him I didn't care if it was going to be good, I wanted to see their take on it. When I came home I had to tell him that I didn't know if he'd like it or not. He said "Well, at leasts that's honest."

but i'm definitely buying it when it comes out on DVD.
