When my Friends rave about a movie, especially particular Friends, I know I will
enjoy it. Rarely, however, after so much build up (433 since December!!!?)
do I find myself as entirely impressed
as I have been lead to believe I will be.

V for Vendetta is the Exception.
I saw it tonight, I will see it again.

I wish I remembered more of the Comic...
I need a refresher, I wonder how the film compares?

Edit: Thank-you theycallmegah for pointing out this LINK
to Craig Klein's AWESOME site. Check it out if you just want a quick time-line from the Graphic Novel, or if you would enjoy sifting through a rather comprehensive study of the work itself. Valerie's letter in it's entirety, Comic covers, Historical background, music-film-print-stage that have been influenced by the Graphic Novel....oodles of fun stuff. Some of it is updated as recently as March 18th '06, and some begun as long ago as 1997...
It's cool. You should click.

I couldn't agree more about V for Vendetta.

I'm even seriously considering driving up to Philly to see it in IMAX!

The timeline link doesn't work for me on either of my machines, in any of my browsers.

The rest of the site does, though, so maybe the timeline is just being updated...

Antid0te's

weird.

It pops up in a separate screen in front of the one that appears
when you click on the link from my edit.

You put MY machine together, I wonder why it won't work
on yours???

it does take a moment....are you waiting on the blank screen?

I waited there, but nothing loaded.

So I checked to see if the source code had loaded, and it had.

Weird, that. For some reason I could read the source...see under the hood...but the page was stil invisible.

My searching was not in vain: at the bottom of the source code was the addres for the timeline.

i've been wanting to see this movie and everyone i know keeps telling me they don't think it will be worth it.
i'm going to see it with my dad tomorrow.

I definitely think it's worth the effort to go see this in an imax theatre in San Antonio or Dallas(depending upon how adventurous we feel). I'd certainly like to see it one more time, it was really quite incredible.

San Antonio.

The Rivercenter IMAX is pretty neat, it's a much shorter drive and best of all it's on the Riverwalk (meaning tasty eats before and/or after).

Too bad it's not showing at Ginger's FAVORITE MUSEUM EVER!!!, the Bob Bullock Texas State History Museum.

Re: San Antonio.

I've actually been to that imax, but not since I was about 14.

And I really can't imagine Bob Bullock showing anything quite so... adventurous. Which really is just as well, because Ginger would probably STILL go somewhere else.

I loved it. I saw it at a crappy seaside shoe box theater and was enthralled. I want to see it again.

I want Americans to don masks and swarm Bushs ranch in crawford.

I also give a mild thumbs up for "UltraViolet"

I may go to San Anat saturday, maybe Ill take you and BB?

i liked "UltraViolet" too, in a reluctant sorta way...

You know me, I NEVER make plans that far in the future!
^_^
But thanks for the invite.

Stuart

Overwhelmed I would imagine...

Do check in on it later though, he's been working on it since the late 90's
and it really shows.

My random "What the hell?" site for the day:

http://www.latinoreview.com/news.php?id=379

No, I don't normally read latino review(being a pasty white boy, I'd feel a touch gringo), but a search for "v for vendetta domino" yielded that thing. What's really cool? The V Zippos... wow. The messenger bag is pretty slick too. But I want the GreatBig(tm) box of red/black dominoes. Everyone should have dominoes.
