Remember, remember the fifth of November... (in Off-topic)

Anyone making it a point to watch V for Vendetta on Sunday?

Remember, remember the fifth of November,
gunpowder, treason and plot,
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
should ever be forgot.
Guy Fawkes, Guy Fawkes,
'twas his intent
to blow up the King and the Parliament.
Three score barrels of powder below,
Poor old England to overthrow:
By God's providence he was catch'd
With a dark lantern and burning match.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, make the bells ring.
Holloa boys, holloa boys, God save the King!
Hip hip hoorah!

*plays 1812 overture* :D

Hmm, that sounds like a good plan.

The adds didn't grab me was it worth watching??

It was definitely worth watching :) The special effects were extremely well done, and adding that to the plot, it was an overall A+ movie in my book.

The plot is the type that is in all the famous novels (like 1984, A Brave New World etc.) But it puts it in a new, personal spin with references to recently past events.

Not a good movie at all... :(

Nice 'Celerity' type special effect in the one major fight scene, but on the whole, you know something is wrong when the comics creator requests his name to be removed from the credits, and they use the Inkers (I think, could have been another of the artists) name instead.

The original comic was by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. Alan Moore has never been happy with the films based on his comics.

And look at the films: League of Extraordinary Gentlemen, From Hell, V For Vendetta. They're not the worst films in the history of cinema but when you look at the source material they're leagues apart.

Go and read the original comic: it is fantastic, one of the best comics ever. It would probably have worked better as a tv series rather than a movie.

Just pray that they never get round to doing a Watchmen movie....

Johnnywas, Who Watches the Watchers, awesome comic and if done right i think the movie could be good, I'd like to see Roeschereck in action.
