Phew...after a long hiatus..im back!..and well..i would like to dive straight down to something i saw jus now...i jus finished seeing V for Vendetta..which i personally felt was an amazing amazing amazing movie..jus pure brilliance...some of the dialogues were brilliant...and some scenes were fantastic(like the stack of plastic squares toppling over one another in the shape of V)..a few things i loved in this movie...

1)
"Voilà! In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition. The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V."

This is my favorite dialogues in the film..by far..its fantastic.. the delivery of it was amazing..shit..words just dont explain it..

Now for anyone who hasnt seen this movie thinks by reading this i am giving the plot away..fear not..im jus highlighting certain stuff which will help u appreciate the movie for what it really is.. so continue reading!!..

People who have seen the movie might have noticed the coincidence between the number of words with the starting letter 'v' and the fact that the characters name is 'V' too.

2) Another really amazing is the connection with the number 5.. the cell in which 'V' stayed is was number 5 and his favorite phrase was "By the power of truth, I, a living man, have conquered the universe", which according to the film translates into the 5 "V"ed
phrase: "Vi Veri Veniversum Vivus Vici" (Latin).

Apart from this..there is also the scene where V dances to the beethoven 'Vth' Symphonny..
whose opening notes have a rhythmic pattern that resembles the letter “V” in morse code. It could be that the film’s title is a reference to "V for Victory" like Winston Churchill

So overall a fantastic fantastic movie!!...must see!!
