V for Very Cool Movie
The film adaptation of the graphic novel V For Vendetta is coming out, and it's about time. Never read the comic, but I've seen pictures from it and I always thought V had a great costume. That big, cheerful grin contrasts so well with the menace of his appearance and actions. I wondered how Alan Moore came up with it, and it turns out that V's supposed to look like Guy Fawkes, a revolutionary British hero who was tried and hanged for trying to blow up Parliament. Never heard of him. Except for that time they tricked me into celebrating Guy Fawkes Day when I was in Grenada. But the movie looks cool.
If you've never read the V For Vendetta graphic novel, you can brush up on it at Wikipedia.
