V for Vendetta

Currently in Theatres
Dir: Wachowski Bros

Jag gives it 5 out of 5 stars.

I wasn't expecting to love it, but I did. I should have known I was going to, because it's my kind of love story. It has been described as 1984 meets Phantom of the Opera. And to me, that's like the best formula, ever. I'll have to stop myself here before I spoil it for you.

Love the new "pop culture" review additions. Yet I must correct you, "V for Vendetta" was directed by James McTiegue not the W brothers.
The over rated and worshipped W brothers wrote the screenplay.
I appeal all to track down and read the original graphic novel by Alan Moore and illustrated by David Lloyd.
It is a classic from the comic book world revolution in the mid to late eighties.
The movie..well look at the numbers for Ice Age 2....

Oops! My bad, you're right. I mixed the writing and directing credits.

But, you gotta give the W bros props for Bound. Lesbians take on the mob. That's hot.
