Finally managed to catch V for Vendetta w/ Ellen today, and whee it was great! I especially liked the opening speech of V, and I quote:
“VoilÃƒ ! 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 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 vis-Ãƒ -vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.
Darn kewl ;p V’s dialogue especially was intricate IMO, very well written. The decor of V’s hideout was well done (let’s exclude the bookshelves tho) too, very tasteful; the kinda place that I’ll like to explore and have a look about.
There was one scene I particularly liked though, where Evey goes into the rain with arms outstretched. The scene flashes between her and V’s past, and you can see the contrast. Both being reborn, but one amidst the blazing fires, and another with the embrace of raindrops.
The plot wasn’t too perfect, and you could see the entire thing being fast-forwarded at times. And the ending was kinda abrupt, plus V’s final action scene was too bloody superhuman; unbelieveable. How the fcuk can you move like that when you’ve just been riddled with bullets? Amazingly duh.
Conclusion? If you haven’t watched it (which I very much doubt so), go catch it. I’m sure you won’t be bored : )
The course’s finally over! And what did I learn exactly? I’m not sure either, since I was practically being volunteered to answer the entire day. Paraphrasing, empathy, blah. You can learn that by reading the bloody DJ forums, no need for a course at all.
Further signs of boredom at lesson. And yeah, I didn’t draw the dragon. Some industrious fellow in my group did heh.
Three green smilies courtesy of PR, but the (>_<) is mine. Yes it sucks, I know.
Lunch was at Crystal Jade today, and this beef hor fun I ordered was really quite good. (Or maybe I was just hungry.)
Dinner out at Pastamania alone; peaceful chewing session while I read. Got this book from Sans Bookshop titled Magic Kingdom for Sale (by Terry Brooks). It looked pretty interesting, sorta like Piers Anthony’s Xanth series but not as corny. I think I’ll finish reading it in a couple of days though, too thin heh.
The playground on Tampines Mall’s roof; I cooled me heels there for awhile before the movie. Good quiet place to sit and contemplate deep thoughts, if there’s not too many couples around. I used the place to try recording my awful vocals, heh.
– Food-for-thought post coming up tomorrow, stuff on females.
– Linked from nad, and I’m labelled as.. stalker ;p I bet my traffic’ll skyrocket, thanks to the curious people who’ll be wondering who the mysterious stalker is, lol.
– A couple of kids on the MRT were giggling about bl*wjobs and such on the T*mmy video clip (exercising censorship, since getting my site hit by stupid search keywords on that clip is dumb), and I learnt a new term today, thanks to them. å¤§å¸¸é‡‘ (i.e. the popular Korean drama serial) gets mutated into å¤§é•¿é‡‘ instead, and somehow means a male d*ck. Creative kids, I say.
Reminder of the day: Time to go gym tomorrow!
