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.

That is pretty much the coolest thing I've seen since the first "Matrix" trailer. The use of knives is a nice contrast to the use of guns in the Matrix.
If the movie is even half as good as the graphic novel sounds then this is gonna be slammin'.

Dear Sir,

People should not be afraid of their government. The government should be afraid of its people.

Signed,
V

P.S. Can I get any cooler?

Did you get to see it yet? I must admit I was kinda disappointed. It was pretty cool but my expectations were too high (again). Doh.

Never did see it...ahh, don't tell me it's bad. Why can't Hollywood get it right?
