Up too late again  
Everyone in the country should see V for Vendetta. Everyone. Damn, what an awesome, thought-provoking movie. Yes, I know Alan Moore hates it. I haven't read the book yet, so I didn't.

Rob, who has read the book, was extremely happy with the movie. So yay.

I would be more coherent, but it's after 5 am. I've been processing and playing Civ II. Yay for a Sid Meier game I can actually put down. :) Bed!

(I'm using my Dorian icon, because Alan Moore also wrote LXG, and also hated the movie. That one, I get. :) I liked it okay, never having read the original. And <3 Stuart, dude.)

If you're willing to play the older stuff, I enjoyed Alpha Centauri (bascially the sequel to Civ II) more than Civ II OR Civ III. I own, but haven't played Civ IV. And in fairness to Civ III, I got majorly annoyed with it when it was first released and before numerous stability, performance, and play balancing patches were released.

from drwex "Alan Moore doesn't hate it. what he hates is that the movie company used his name w/o his permission for the film."

It IS good, and it IS pretty faithful to the book. Alan Moore is clearly harking back to previous butchery of his work...

I totally agree about V for Vendetta! It was EVERYTHING good in a movie. Great acting, great plot, great action, great cinamatography, gread dialogue and just... WOW.

I liked it too. Several good take-away messages. However, I'm still dealing with the fact that V gave gentle deaths to people who'd severely wronged him, and tortured someone he cared about.

Dude, I know. But as far as the doctor was concerned, she was the only one who expressed remorse for what she'd done.

I can explain what I think V's thought processes were, but I can't justify them. I was shocked by what he did to Evey. He was not a perfect hero. I think he recognized that, and that was why he preferred to die.
