Verily

I saw V for Vendetta Wednesday night. I would've mentioned that yesterday, but while I was online most of Thursday, I was too busy reading damn good V/Evey fanfic.

I know I'm not the only one to see a connection between V and Erik. Two disfigured, masked men who live in underground luxury, have no problems with killing their enemies, and fall in love with beautiful young women. The main difference would be motive -- V is obsessed with freedom and anarchy, while Erik is obsessed with Christine.

I've heard complaints about Natalie Portman's accent, but I didn't really notice anything wrong.

Hugo Weaving. The man was great as Elrond, but as V... *melts into a big puddle of fangirl goo*

You gotta love a man who can quote classic literature and has such theatrical flair. Not to mention the polished manners.

I absolutely love his speech with all the v words. I've seen that on a few icons. I should grab one of those the next time I see it.

Can someone please explain to me the point of V's death? I'll admit I was touched that he died in her arms, but really, he should've lived.

Oooh! Ooh! FANFIC!!!!! ^_^

I loved the 'v' speech too. ;-) I also loved the part where Evey woke up and he was making her breakfast and he greeted her with a bow and a "Bonjour, Mademoiselle"! *melts* Oh, and the apron just MADE that scene! *giggles*

I wish he would've lived too. I figured he died for his cause -- and WANTED to. *shrug* But I really don't get why he wouldn't want to see how the change he put into motion would affect the world. :-P

The breakfast scene was perfect, and you're right the apron. :-)

I'm not sure he wanted to die. Otherwise, why did he wear the breastplate? But I'm in De Nile about him dying. :-)
