    "V for Vendetta" - Opens March 17th

    Stardate 5398.3

    V for Vendetta... If you see no other movie this year, see this one.

    Set against the futuristic landscape of totalitarian Britain, V For Vendetta tells the story of a mild-mannered young woman named Evey (NATALIE PORTMAN) who is rescued from a life-and-death situation by a masked man (HUGO WEAVING) known only as ā€œV.ā€ Incomparably charismatic and ferociously skilled in the art of combat and deception, V ignites a revolution when he urges his fellow citizens to rise up against tyranny and oppression. As Evey uncovers the truth about Vā€™s mysterious background, she also discovers the truth about herself ā€“ and emerges as his unlikely ally in the culmination of his plan to bring freedom and justice back to a society raught with cruelty and corruption.
    Like Syriana, this film should raise the blood pressure of many right wingers, and soon, folks are going to start complaining about it, and suggesting that you boycott the film. To the contrary, I suggest you go and watch it. In fact, watch it, and think about it. From the sounds of THIS article, the film should be a must-see for any thinking person, especially in light of the increasing level of idiocy, lies and subterfuge coming from the Bush Administration. Read the article for more insights, but the fact is, the hero of this movie is nothing less than a terrorist. The society he is fighting for is eerily similar to modern day America, and it's War on Terror. The erosion of freedoms in the name of National Security is one of the main themes, and parallels will be drawn to be sure.

    I plan on seeing this movie. I hope everyone else does too.

    All opinions shared on this site are strictly my own. Some people may disagree and that is fine, but rude comments or overzealous debate will be curtailed. I enjoy civil discourse, and encourage independent thought. I oppose George W. Bush and his Wars based on lies.
