an endless list of my favourite films (in no particular order) » V for Vendetta

I’ve witnessed first hand the power of ideas, I’ve seen people kill in the name of them, and die defending them… but you cannot kiss an idea, cannot touch it, or hold it… ideas do not bleed, they do not feel pain, they do not love… And it is not an idea that I miss, it is a man… A man that made me remember the Fifth of November. A man that I will never forget.

Ok so I didn’t appreciate them turning V For Vendetta into a love story, but that dominoes scene is a thing of cinematic beauty.

Alan Moore and the Simpsons were simply destined to be together…

lasso said: I love the movie! I really should read the novel. In an ideal world, I would have the time to do so…

haha yes, I’m like that for a lot of things I should read/see.  Damned imperfect world >:(

The book is well worth reading, I think its a bit different from the movie, but the film’s pretty faithful to it, i hear.  It actually doesn’t take too long to read, like all graphic novels, since much of the story is told through pictures.  Watchmen (also by Alan Moore) is similarly awesome (in fact, more so) and has a pretty good movie adaptation, too, so maybe you should check out that as well?

V For Vendetta
Intense novel, looking forward to watching the movie this weekend!

V For Vendetta

Intense novel, looking forward to watching the movie this weekend!

On my To Watch list this week:

Night of the Living Dead (1968)
I’ve never watched a zombie movie (well, I’ve seen half of Shaun of the Dead) so hopefully this zombie classic will be a good start. 

Bonnie & Clyde (1967)
Another classic which I must watch… 

V for Vendetta (2006)
I read Alan Moore’s graphic novel recently and found it quite interesting, if not as sophisticated as Watchmen.  Hoping that the Wachowski Brothers, Natalie Portman and Hugo Weaving will impress me with their take on it. 

A Serious Man (2009)
This movie looks so damn aesthetically pleasing, and Colin Firth is supposed to be excellent in this. 

then maybe either Inception or Scott Pilgrim at the movies.

I reckon I’m in for a pretty good line-up.

NOTE: Actually, now I think of it, all these movies are pretty violent, eh?  Well, except for A Serious Man…  Do I have a tendency towards violent films?  Just an interesting thought…
