I saw V For Vendetta tonight on IMAX at Ontario Mills.
GREAT movie up until the ending, I thought. The ending was silly. Not coincidentally, the movie started going downhill for me once it started deviating more heavily from the comic. Not BECAUSE it was deviating more heavily. No no.
I just think the Wachowskis suck at endings. See: Matrix Revolutions.

She also takes-on a new apprentice to begin teaching him the ropes (I think it was the detective's partner?). The theme that was more present in the GN was that Evey (a play on Adam & Eve, BTW) would lead the country in rebuilding when V was gone.
Great flick though.
Watched A History of Violence on DVD yesterday. Good movie, but I'd probably rate it a 3.5/5. The last third of the movie just seemed odd/out of place when compared to the other parts..., like something better could've been written. I ordered the Graphic Novel 2 weeks ago, but it will only arrive this week, so it should be interesting to see how it was handled in there.
Except for Naqoyqatsi. That's one's just pretty damn headache-inducing.Quote:

i watched "spirited away" over the weekend on cartoon network. pretty good, but i can't stand english dubbing. i wish they'd just leave it subtitled.
I think this thread should get stickied.
Great film, I laughed my ass off the whole time.
Very much looking forward to seeing that.Quote:
