Movie: V for Vendetta

Remember remember the fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot.

I saw “V for Vendetta” today and it was awesome. A little loud at some points in the IMAX theater for my headache’s taste, but not so much to ruin the rest of my day. The story is really good (I totally want to read the book now) and the acting was great. Natalie Portman is an incredibly talented woman. I think that it’s a little sad that the point seems to have been lost on so many Americans (probably at least partially due to the government’s huge anti-terrorist push), and even more sad that for many people the image will be remembered as V rather than Guy Fawkes. Of course, that isn’t surprising as I doubt one in ten people in the United States could tell you what Guy Fawkes day is anyway. I really enjoyed it though and think it was a wonderful movie. I’m glad that I spent money to see it and would even buy it on DVD when it comes out.
