"Voila ! 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 it vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone 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 vis-a-vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V."

That was a great quote. How long did it take to transcribe?

I don't care what Moore thinks.

V For Vendetta is a stunning achievement.

Yeah, we don't have to. Still, as I said, it's easy to understand why he didn't approve given that the original characters and story were his creations.

I still haven't forgiven David Lynch and Raffaella De Laurentiis for the hatchet job they did on Dune.   As a purist of Frank Herbert's epic novel, I was disgusted by the plot and character changes.  Herbert wasn't too happy with it, either.

It's understandable.

There was a lot of butchering with Watchmen but I still enjoyed it. And there was some with V but I still liked it too.

Going way back, when the film producers of Ayn Rand's novel The Fountainhead tried to change stuff, Rand threw an absolute fit.  She demanded that Gary Cooper read his lines exactly in the way that she wrote them.....no matter how long the lines were.

Just like Howard Roark opposed all changes to his architectural works, so did Rand with her words.

Indeed! And while I love Auntie Ayn, no sarcasm, what makes for a great morality play on the page doth butter no bread as movie dialogue.
