V FOR VENDETTA
I'm not sure what movie reviewers like Newsweek and The Kansas City Star saw, but Molly and I loved this film. She got all emotional at the end and I thought that it did an amazing job of giving the audience exactly what they wanted. Action. Drama. Emotion. It's all there.
I highly suggest you check it out. It was eerie how certain things, like rounding up gays into concentration camps, didn't seem so "oh that would never happen" when you start thinking of how quickly we let things slide now. The way they snatched people in the night and placed black bags over their heads also got under my skin.
The entire film was packed with beautiful imagery. The roses, the blacks and reds, the way the theme gets darker the farther we get away from "the present." It was a sight to be seen. And I'm glad I did. I had high expectations and they were easily met.
