Lucky Coincidence

"Remember, remember
The fifth of November
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason
Why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot."

DEFEND THE CHILDREN OF THE
POOR PUNISH THE WRONG DOER



Through no conscious effort of mine "V for Vendetta" arrived from Netflix today.

It was excellent! I'm glad that yesterday we were able to overthrow our corrupt, tyrannical, spying, torturing, government without having to resort to gunpowder. The situation in V is what we have been going through for the past eight years. We haven't had the rationing or the curfews. But we have had the government using terrorism to spy on our own people, engage in propaganda, and torture and murder innocent people.

I'm very glad that the movie takes place in England. I do hate it when American movie studios insist that Americans will not watch a movie it doesn't have Americans in it.

I recall that some people were upset that the movie deviated from the comic. Something about leaving the anarchy out. I read the comic when the movie came out, which was a while ago so I don't remember it very well, but I'm OK with the movie ending. The people stood up in the end.

I loved the V's final fight scene. Now that was a good example of the use of special effects in service of the story, not just for their own sake. I was spellbound.

That was a great movie, and I want to watch it again!
I love this movie also.
Last night I did a private ritual and watched the speech part of the movie as part of it.
