V (not the lizard alien one, the comic book one)

I'm really excited about the V for Vendetta movie. Not for the movie itself, really (I've never even read the comic), but because I want to see how America reacts to a movie where the hero is an anarchistic terrorist.

Yeah, well I was kind of excited for a movie where a 12 year old girl takes on The Church, which is performing cruel experiments on children. Meanwhile, he father launches a war on God.
I would have liked to see how America handled that one.

But they castrated the hell out of that one, didn't they?

The homosexual angels might have also messed some shit up.

Did they find a new director for those movies? I need to check that shit out.

To the best of my knowledge they've stayed very close to the book. Everyone at Silver seems really happy with it. I think the thing you forget is that by any reasonable definition the "Rebels" in the Star Wars movies are basically a terrorist faction. We cheer on terrorists all the time, we just cleverly file them away as freedom fighters when we need to. Most people, I bet, won't even stop to think about whether or not V is a "terrorist" and what that means to them. They'll just know he's fighting a big evil fascist government and shit blows up and the Wachowskis will make it look cool.

But doesn't V blow up big, recognizeable London landmarks as opposed to made-up Imperial battlestations?

I don't know. As I said, I've never read it. But I thought I heard that he did.
