WARNING: SPOILERS. HAPPENING. BELOW. DON'T READ IT IF YOU DON'T ALREADY KNOW.

This movie is based on a comic book by Alan Moore, who we discussed the other day: https://www.sectual.com/thread-17081.html

I remember when this movie came out in 2005, a lot of people were hot over Natalie Portman. I thought she was cute too. There was one guy I knew who was excited to see the film cuz he thought she looked hot with a shaved head... lol.

Before this movie, it was pretty rare for them to pull the whole shaved head on women thingy. For this movie specifically, the character's head was shaved as kind of a punishment. In recent years they've had the females in hollywank shaving their heads and humiliating themselves for no reason. Indeed, circa 2005 was when hollyweird and the entertainment industry as a whole started to go down burning. Before Natalie Portman in this movie, the only other role I can think of with a shaved head female was Demi Moore in G.I. Jane (1997), an undoubtedly completely ridiculous movie I admittedly never saw.

I wasn't going to actually commentate on this movie at first when I began watching it tonight, but I got in about 10 minutes and decided I might as well. Netflix's timestamp system on their media player is utter trash, but at least the movie is available somewhere I don't have to rent it.

I like V as a character, but all the words starting with a "V" that they made Hugo Weaving recite are sorta hard to listen to sometimes. It's quirky and I guess sorta lighthearted, but not my favorite aspect of the character.

The story of V for Vendetta is set in 2020, and of course Hugo Weaving was the actor who portrayed Agent Smith in the Matrix trilogy.

12:52 oh I remember this specific guy right here... https://imgur.com/a/yv27Igw he turned into one of the good guys, right?? Can't remember. But I always thought he was attractive.

13:40 I always thought the shirt Natalie (Evey) was wearing here was so baller.

14:56 how dare they just kick open the door, don't they have any more sophisticated ways to get into peoples' fucking apartments??

Not totally wild about Natalie's British accent in this movie... not that she did it particularly badly or anything, just don't really like it that much.

16:28 the bass on my stereo system is fucking insane lmao. It's like a movie theater, the quality is superb.

16:54 I loooove the green bag she's carrying right here, omg.

24:54 it's a great movie, but I have heard someone describe it as "overhyped propaganda" and heck, maybe it is.

25:05 lmfao this news report thingy is hilarious. They really do emphasize the brainwashing very well with this movie.

It's not anything on the level of a movie like "They Live" (1988) with "Rowdy" Roddy Piper...

But it's a great movie in its own right. I can't guarantee I'll watch it all cuz I have seen it like 3 times already. There's just not that much incentive for me to watch it again.

That said, this is the best review I can ever promise to give on it. It's just not very high on my list of priorities.

You know what, my 2020 opinion of this movie is that it's kinda cool and kinda dumb. Kinda both at the same time.

And I also gotta say this...

The volume levels of some of these hollywood movies on these streaming sites SUCK. They SUCK, they're CRAP. Turn the shit UP.

25:14 sitting and watching actual TV is the weirdest shit ever and I think they do a good job of making it look weird and stupid here.

26:31 look at all the books.

26:46 dude's got a baller house, TBH.

27:40 I'd be pretty wet right about now if I was her.

28:58 TBH, I'd have to put a paper bag over that hideous mask and wig, but we'd be bangin'.

29:21 I meeean... I think she's kinda being a bitch about this. I'd LOVE to live there for a year!

She reacted like a brat and it was sort of ridiculous.

31:17 lol, this movie is ridiculous. I mean I guess they're just trying to make a point, but it's still ridiculous.

I guess that's because it's based on a comic book... it brings that crazy larger than life quality to the characters.

33:21 those bathroom floors are sooo slippery.

47:23 yo! I can't believe she played him like that?! This chick sucks!

50:28 I really like this guy. I think his character has one of the most impactful stories.

50:59 what's with these English dudes and their dungeons??

52:55 this lady is in my favorite scene of the movie, which I've referenced here before: https://www.sectual.com/thread-6662.html...+agreement But I like this specific scene because she knows it's him and they're fucked.

58:12 this movie is about a virus too, just saying.

1:13:26 they always gotta work some gay shit into everything. Hollywank got hella annoying with that in the early 2000s and started producing almost exclusively total garbage. There have been a handful of good movies between 2006 and 2020.

1:26:17 what the fuck is this gayass song?

1:34:12 they tell the story of what's happening right now re: the https://www.sectual.com/thread-16297.htm...oronavirus and the https://www.sectual.com/thread-16982.htm...ht=rioting ... eerily on point, but then again, they've always told us their plan via hollyweird movies and the media in general.

1:54:38 I do love it when V talks dirty!

1:57:03 "Ideas are bulletproof."

Yeah it was a really good movie... not the best, not better than the Matrix trilogy and not better than some of the cult classics out there, but still very good.

Bang each other, or make a big bang at the House of Lords with gunpowder?

"Guy Fawkes Night originates from the 
Gunpowder Plot of 1605, a failed conspiracy by a group of provincial English Catholics to assassinate the Protestant King James I of England and VI of Scotland and replace him with a Catholic head of state. In the immediate aftermath of the 5 November arrest of Guy Fawkes, caught guarding a cache of explosives placed beneath the House of Lords, James's Council allowed the public to celebrate the king's survival with bonfires, so long as they were "without any danger or disorder"
