Alan Moore: V For Vendetta Sucks, And the Wachowski Bros. Are Gutless Pussies Too
– Ace
I said no more on this, but when the author of the book the movie's based on pans it this badly, I have to quote him:

"V for Vendetta" was specifically about things like fascism and anarchy.
Those words, "fascism" and "anarchy," occur nowhere in the film. It's been turned into a Bush-era parable by people too timid to set a political satire in their own country. In my original story there had been a limited nuclear war, which had isolated Britain, caused a lot of chaos and a collapse of government, and a fascist totalitarian dictatorship had sprung up. Now, in the film, you've got a sinister group of right-wing figures — not fascists, but you know that they're bad guys — and what they have done is manufactured a bio-terror weapon in secret, so that they can fake a massive terrorist incident to get everybody on their side, so that they can pursue their right-wing agenda.

This won't mean a blessed thing to those who want Bush bashing with their hot buttered popcorn. To them I say, enjoy your movie!

I'm sure it's going to put a twist in someones panties when the "Larry the Cable Guy" movie or "Joe Dirt II" or whatever new "Cheech and Chong" rip off out grosses "Brokedick Mountain" and "V for Vendetta" in the first two weeks...and they wonder why the movie business is in trouble.

UPDATE
I was wrong...and I am man enough to admit it.
Here's this weekends figures

1- Inside Man $28,954,945
2- V for Vendetta $12,338,402
3- Stay Alive $10,726,406
4- Failure to Launch $10,462,474
5- The Shaggy Dog $9,035,928
6-She's the Man $7,296,562
7- Larry the Cable Guy: Health Inspector $6,922,767

Needlesss to say I won't be offered any jobs in the movie industry anytime soon. But hey, getting nearly 7 million for saying "Giter Done" is not a bad gig. And a re-make of a crappy Disney movie from the '60s pulled in 9 million bucks...you've got to be s#$tting me.
