I liked V For Vendetta fine up until the ending.
And, JD... dude. Read it.
I thought Anime was either lightweight Miyazaki stuff or Devilman/women with tentacled vjs.
I watched The Road. Having never read the book I thought it was great. Pretty suspenseful and Viggo Mortensen can do no harm. I even thought the son was good. Don't need to know how the world got to that point, and glad it didn't show.
