Remember, Remember, The 5th of November

Sounds familiar? V for Vendetta. It’s an old movie but I’ve only just watched it 2 days ago and I tell you it’s quite a nice watch. The 2 lines on the DVD cover already hinted that it’s going to be something.

‘The people should not be afraid of the government. The government should be afraid of the people.’

Cool. I don’t know what to say about it actually. A movie about a masked man who gives you the first impression that he’s a complete fruitcake. What is there to say?

His extensive use of words starting from ‘v’ and his speed of talking stunned me. This guy probably used all the ‘v’ words ever existed in the history of mankind. Honestly I didn’t understand a word he said. All the ‘v’ words which most I’ve never even seen before. Fruitcake. He’s a fruitcake! But I like it. It’s been sometime since I’ve watched a movie which plays around with words. Bollocks is another word used throughout the movie.
“Bollocks.”
“That’s bollocks.”
“Bollocks.”
“Bollocks.”
Okay they could’ve said something else instead of bollocks ALL the time. There’s a large variety of profanes you can use, you know. Men seem to be inclined to scurrilities; it’s probably the fastest growing language around. This goes to show that V is the only person who reads the thesaurus. But I like bollocks. I hardly hear the word. I’ve never used it. It’s not common here. It reminds me of how the brits say ‘rubbish’. It’s roo-bish. I’ve been watching BBCE lately. There’s this series called Waterloo Road. I don’t know why I watch it. It’s like OC or One Tree Hill only they don’t live in mansions or have a psychopathic father. I don’t understand their English too. It’s too heavy an accent for me. But I like it. Hmm. It seems to me that I like things I can’t completely comprehend.

Back to V. Okay…what did I want to say? Oh yea I wondered why they didn’t ban that movie. It’s teaching the people to go against the government. Shouldn’t the government do something about it? Maybe they liked the idea of the ‘former United States’. Yes, in that movie US is non-existent. US is history. But wait. The movie is also racist! You can’t keep a Koran in your house. Keep it and they’ll bag your head in a black bag and it’s straight to the execution stand for you. But Koran is half bible! Why….why?

Quite a disturbing movie but I like it. Haha! I liked the way they made it disturbing. V for vendetta, I don’t get the whole picture but it's…ve…ve…ugh forget the v, it's one heck of a fruitcake show - and I like it.

Sounds interesting. I should add it to my ever-growing list of movies to watch.

I think I might like it because of Natalie Portman, but maybe I won't because she looks like Britney Spears in this one. Hmm.

hmm... the country they were inciting rebellion is a racist Father's-knows-best state, now the movie is liberating if not a bit anti-religion hehe..

joyfulchicken said...

Don't worry. Britney has no fans anymore.

runawaycat said...

HAhaHa! Good one!

Arthur Bhenedict said...

I meant it wasn't movie that's racist (unless you're taking offense for the Brits) but the government depicted in the movie... and they're the enemy, so it's not really racist... it is anti-religion though hehe

runawaycat said...

That guy reminds me of Hitler. =P Hey arthur, got a blog? Your name sounds familiar.

Arthur Bhenedict said...

Hehe... I don't know how my name would sound familiar, but yes, I'm from the Chicken Mafia Triad hehe... aka Philos... I don't know how to change my Google name though, so here, I'm Arthur Bhenedict hehe...

Maybe it's the arthur and the bhenedict combined. Like the king and the pope. Never mind me.
You can change it from the settings page if I'm not wrong.
