V For Vapidity

Rented V For Vendetta through Netflix. I think I can summarize this film thusly:
"It's Must-See Thursday! First, at 8, Padme and V hang out watching classic b&w movies; V blows up some
shit."

The effort to paint a lunatic as a disfigured jazz aficionado with a Mensa vocabulary and a flair for entertaining made me laugh out loud. I know it was a DC Comics graphic novel, and I don't have an issue with the story line. But IMDB readers make it sound like All The President's Men . This flick was Fantastic 4 with better acting. To call it ham-handed would be a compliment.

The Nefarious One just doesn't like movies that poke at totalitarian regimes. He like his leaders right and conniving.
