V is for FUCKING AWESOME!

You! Right there! GO TO THIS MOVIE IMMEDIATELY. I just got back from it, and it was fucking incredible. I have no words. Not real ones, anyway. The amazingness is unsurpassable. I wasn't expecting anything and it blew my mind. I can't even ... It was so good. I was sqirming. It was like a prolonged orgasm. THAT GOOD.

I mean it kicked the Matrix's ass sideways and to the 17th curb. They outdid themselves! How?! I don't even know, and I watched it. I'm going again, and everyone should go see it. I... uh... pppwwwbiit. Big baaada boom. Good music. No, fantastic music. Gorgeous cinematography. Natalie Portman! Hugo Weaving! Oh God!

JUST GO! NOW! I can't... I shan't! Not until I see it again and can actually speak. No spoilers, but you're lucky! It's AMAZING. Hopefully next time I'll be capable of coherancy.

It's ridiculously good. I can't even describe it yet besides the standard "fucking incredible." I can't not curse with glee whenever I refer to this film.

Is it really good? God like a million people on my flist have said it's good, but I didn't really believe them because they were the sort who are like... you know. But now I think I'm going to have to see it, because seriously, that many people saying it's good can't be wrong.

... Did I even make sense at all? Oh well. I'm tired anyways. Ignore me xDD

Ignore you? Never!

No, it's brilliant. I went without any expectations, and was fairly confident that it would be enjoyably bad, but it was amazing. Fucking amazing, even. I was absolutely blown away. Still am. I'm going to see it again, that's how good it is. I rarely go see movies twice unless I absolutely adore them.

Furthermore, I knew I was going to buy the DVD less than halfway through. Yeah. That good.

I agree with you on V, fantastic movie. The way V just...moved, gracefully killing. Gracefully blowing up what have you. Graceful movie. Lovely movie.

Only one problem: The credits music. Street Fightin' Man? Did the Wachoski's really thing THAT was gonna have people leaving the theatre thinking they had just seen a masterpiece? It had rather the oppisite effect. I left the movie at first thinking, "Jesus christ. I loved that." Then I heard the electric guitar of Keith Richards and thought "What? Is this a different movie?"

and yes, I just realized that I spelled their names incorrectly. Pardon me. I'm in kind of a hurry.

I agree, the use of Rage Against the Machine for the first matrix suited the movie, simply because it was actually a song that started with a soft beating and then built a crescendo that sent you bolting out of theatre with a "woa" sort of feeling. In this case, though, I just looked to the left of my friend and said, "What the fuck is this?" (Not to the left of my friend, to the left, where my friend was sitting. If I was looking to the left of my friend, that means I was talking to a wall, and that would just be deranged.)

No worries! You make a good point that I'm going to have to look out for when I go see it again tomorrow. XD

Y'know, I think I was in such a state of shock that I don't even remember the credits music. Seriously, at all. It didn't register. I was too shocked by the fact that they used Antony and the Johnsons, Catpower, and Tchaikovski. And the killing. The beautiful graceful killing. Oh, and the blowing up of various and sundry. Nicely done overall. I'll not begrudge them a tune.

Oh, no, I noticed both Cat Power and Antony and the Johnsons and thought it was lovely the way that music was placed. It's just...the end. nothing more. but when you get to the ending, listen. I thought it was a bit out of place.

Will do! You can trust that I will investigate and critique.

Hey, I just wandered on by from cleolinda's blog, and I wanted to share the V love too since I just spent half an hour writing a post about it myself. :)

Also wanted to pimp the original graphic novel hard, since pretty much everything awesome in the movie is straight out of the comic. I give the Wachowskis a lot of credit not messing up Alan Moore's great story, not so much for coming up with the ideas. Evey is a little less interesting in the comic, but the ending is actually even cooler, and I'd highly recommend it. :)

Hello!

I feel really kind of ...uninformed in talking about it, because I knew nothing going in. I just saw the trailer and the Portman, Weaving, and Wachowski names attached and I'd heard there was a buzz without actually hearing the buzz and decided that it would - if nothing else - be fun.

I really want to check out the comic now, which is weird because as far as comics go I'm pretty much a Calvin & Hobbes kind of gal.

I just thought the presentation, the performances, and the words - oh dear god the WORDS - were so unbelievably beautiful. It completely floored me.

Well, like I say, everyone did an excellent job of not ruining Moore's story (unlike, oh, League of Extraordinary Gentlemen), and they really did an awesome job of editing it down to the very best bits and scenes. The comic does have some sideplots that aren't as interesting, but he delves more into the post-war world in a really cool way. I think the movie and comic complement each other very well -- and you're right, the performances are stellar.

If you're not a big comics reader, I will caution you that the world is much bleaker than the movie's -- Alan Moore is a pretty dark writer. But there's nothing really horribly gory or anything, just a sort of pervasive despair. :)
