V for Vendetta
Based on a graphic novel that is loosely based on a real life event, this film is clever. It contains a great twist in the middle that you don’t see coming. Hugo Weaving is awesome, conveying so much through a mask for the entire film. And one learns a bit about Guy Fawkes in the process!
V is a man with a vision and a purpose. Although his methods are violent and a bit warped, you have to admire that he never wavers. He sticks to his values and convictions.
Who is V?
(Minus the mask, of course. And the homicidal tendencies. But Mark is a madman.)
Mark has a vision for his family and life. His values are very grounded and he sticks to his Faith. He’s proud of his heritage and his Christian beliefs, and I really admire him for that. He might just be a little crazy as well…
Mark is a writer, devoted father and husband, and resident Irish Madman.
To you I dedicate Valley of the Kings by Blue Murder. (Title leads to YouTube.)
Because you understand… “A thousand souls plead for mercy, A thousand times over, You’ll hear it on the wind, These sinners never sinned…”
Trivia and Facts:
We know Mark is a stay-at-home dad – what does his wife do?
There’s a line in the film about God playing dice with the universe, which originally came from this line – “At any rate, I am convinced that God does not play dice,” an objection to quantum theory. Who said it?
U’s trivia answer – In Geek mythology, “Selene” means the Moon.
