It's 5th November today and I somehow recalled this movie that I watched only early this year after it was released some years back...yup, you guessed it right...V for Vendetta...

On this same day in 1605, Guy Fawkes was caught in the cellars of the House of Parliament with several dozens barrel of gunpowder. His plan to betray the government was foiled and bla bla bla the story goes on till the cows come home. But a great story though. However, what really caught my interest was the movie itself, with Hugo Weaving and Natalie Portman leading the cast, is a darn great movie...with great plot and great actors. And oh how I've always enjoyed watching Hugo Weaving on screen, be it as a blind man in Proof, as Agent Smith in The Matrix Trilogy, as Elrond in Lord of The Rings Trilogy and of course as the guy with the Guy Fawkes mask on in V for Vendetta. Truly a great actor who deserves the Oscar award.

Have you watched V for Vendetta?? I'm watching now...again :p but...not as many times as The Matrix though hahaha

Remember remember the Fifth of November

Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever be forgot...
