beastkid7 responds:

Thats ok. The evolution of creativity requires the mixing of ideas. Our capitalist mindsets teach us otherwise.

Movies are an adaption. They are not a waist of time if you enjoy them. Every story has been told before, its how you tell it, that makes it original.

The thing I loved the most about the new Batman is the ideology of becoming more than a man, by becoming an idea and symbol. V for Vendetta expanded on this idea in a more profound way.

The comics were expensive, so I don't know how closely the movie followed it, but all the concepts are sound. The guy who played V, was the Elf king in the Lord of the Rings movies, damn fine actor.
The monolog V recites to Evey after the alley fight came from somewhere else... read it in drama class some years back. The concepts of information control and Machiavellian behavior are important subjects.

beastkid7 responds:

Me neither, I just love movies. Haha, I used to read more source material when I was younger. There is so much in this film to consider. The reason I went to go watch it was because I herd some one quote this part.

"My father was a writer. You would've liked him. He used to say that artists use lies to tell the truth, while politicians use them to cover the truth up."

Its the thought of Balance between Anarchy and Fascism, and humanities nature to not find it. Its about giving up the importance of your own existence for a higher goal, and how that can bring peace. It's about the tragedy of an exceedingly impressive soul and his forbidden love. I can always relate to forbidden love.

Oddly enough, this character was adopted by a group of 'hack'-tavists calling themselves "Anonymous". I wrote about them a few times.

They are ALL over the place. And they've had their hands in almost every hacking event and such.

Though very powerful, so far they 'seem' benevolent.

They are essentially the 'Shadow Broker'.

beastkid7 responds:

They would.. it makes sense. V is a benevolent terrorist.

Also, there is truth to stories. They are filled with ideas that we can reflect on ourselves.
