I don’t normally do this, but I feel like I need to do all my readers a favor and STRONGLY ENCOURAGE you to save your money and AVOID seeing the movie The Spirit. Let’s just say four of us went and four of us wanted our money back when we were done. It has no plot, no character development, and was the most boring experience I have had in quite a while. With movies as expensive as they are now, this can be pretty frustrating.
Sadly, I know that many of you are asking yourself, “Who the heck is Guy Fawkes?” Remember, remember, the 5th of November…
If the lights still haven’t clicked on for you then rent the movie, V For Vendetta, call up some friends, and watch it tonight. You’ll be glad that you did. It’s one of my top 5 favorite movies and we’ve created a tradition of watching it every November 5th.
You can watch the trailer below or enjoy one of the best monologues from the movie:
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 by-gone 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 honor to meet you and you may call me V.
I rented a movie last night that had escaped my radar when it came out. I never heard of it before but was sold by the cover and the cast of actors. And it did not disappoint.
It was the movie “Smart People” and I found it artistically made, thought provoking, and encouraging. The movie is about a self-absorbed college professor who realizes that the world doesn’t revolve around him. Obviously, this is a subject that myself and…dare I say, all of us deal with daily. I am constantly fighting my own selfishness and this movie was encouraging to see a person who works at being more selfless. The acting is great, the character development is creative and artistic, and the overall message is very believable and encouraging. I would highly recommend this to anyone.
It is rated R so use caution if you choose to watch it. Click here to see the movie trailer.
