My Review:
Having not seen V for Vendetta for years I could not resist watching this after so long especially after forgetting just how good the movie is and how it is definitely a film in which everyone should see at least once!

The film is about a man called V who wants to give England some hope by using what Guy Fawkes was famous for in 1605 in trying to blow up the houses of parliament. For this, he tells the public that  in one years time this will happen which lets the people of England get behind him and show that they are all needing the hope from V! As well as this happening V starts to get revenge on people who hurt him in the past while the police are trying to find out what happened as well as why V is killing them off one by one. Will the police find out what happened to V and stop him before the 5th of November?

I find that this film is unique and one that stays with you after having watched it which is a reason that this film is such a good watch. This film shows that even though it is in the future and a sci-fi movie there are people out there who are fighting for our hope as a country and showing that you don't have to live in fear which the government is wanting. Personally I like that in this movie you do find out about why V is going after those who have wronged him in the past and how this has effected why he is wanting to give England hope that is outwith the government and that the people need more than just a dictator. With the movie also showing a woman who is scared of everything we are able to see how her character develops from being scared and not feeling like she is safe being outside of her house after curfew to being not scared of anything, including death itself.

I would highly recommend this movie to those who are wanting a sci-fi movie that has a lot of action and will give you hope that things could get better. This is a film I feel everyone should see at least once and has a great story an gives a great understanding as to why the character is wanting vengeance as well as wanting to give hope to a whole country!

My Rating: 5/5

  1. Great film. Watching it every November 5th has become a tradition for me and a workmate. If I'm not working on the day, I'll read the graphic novel in the morning and watch the film at night.

    V is such a great character, his fight scenes are good and his speeches are good. The film is brilliantly cast, it looks amazing and the set pieces are crafted well.

Moon Over Soho - Ben Aaronovitch (book review) *contains spoilers*

Book: Moon Over Soho Author: Ben Aaronovitch Genre: Crime, Fantasy, Mystery Published By: Gollancz Published Year: 2011 My Review: Having my colleague let me borrow the second book in the Peter Grant series I was looking forward to see how they would progress from the first book and what supernatural beings that they would have to defeat now. Moon Over Soho  is about jazz musicians who end up dying not long after coming off of the stage and seeming healthy at the time. Feeling that something is wrong they call in Peter Grant to help with the investigation and discover that something supernatural was going on. While this is happening there is a new threat arriving called The Faceless One who is also a wizard but no-one remembers what they look like. Will Peter be able to stop the threats facing London? Personally, I liked this book a lot more than the first book as it was already established also there was more supernatural beings introduced and to worry about in London th

Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZUdy0Cu3f_o My Review: Looking through my movies and wanting something based in space to watch I decided to put on Supernova which is a film in which I couldn't remember at all. Not remembering it made me feel like this was a new movie to me and I did keep me watching all of the way through easily. I like that this film showed how the device in which they discover is able to make people stronger and able to make them younger as well. By also having this device able to reattach body parts it makes the audience worried about how they will get rid o

Walko About:  A young American girl has a chance of a lifetime to visit her ancestors castle in the south of France, only to find that her family is hiding deep, dark secrets about their nefarious past, far away from prying eyes. Trailer:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_EARmKIxjxQ&t=82s My Review: Having been contacted by Jude himself about this movie I was rather surprised but excited to review The Incantation which comes out in America later this month. Having only seen the trailer I was not sure what to expect but glad I gave this a watch. The film is about a girl from America who moves to her families castle in France and is met by a vicar who tells her the rules of the household with three rules: no going upstairs, no uninvited guests and keeping decorum. As she stays however she starts getting nightmares about a young girl wh
