Gunpowder, treason, and plot.

Tonight I went to go see V for Vendetta.

And was pleasantly surprised.

I hadn’t heard much about the movie up to its release, because, frankly, movies lately have been crap. I understand that it’s based on a comic that was put out by Vertigo, but I only just found this out when their logo showed up at the beginning of the movie.

This may be a good thing. I’ve read some reviews that say the characters deviate quite a bit from their comic underpinnings. This is to be expected, though.

But, from what I’ve seen, they’ve made it into a rather enjoyable movie.

It may also be the best movie to come out this summer.

Though that’s not exactly a hard title to earn.

At any rate, I recommend it.

And remember… remember, remember the fifth of November.
