I’ll admit it. I’ll see anything Natalie Portman’s in. Not because she’s the greatest actress alive, but because she’s just likeable. Though the only movie I’ve seen with her in it more than one time, was V For Vendetta, because that’s a bad-ass movie. I loved Garden State but have never revisited it, mainly because I don’t think it’d hold up in a second viewing.
With that said, her next (indie) project is called Herser, which I have no idea what it means. Two more reasons just were announced to make me want to see that: Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Rainn Wilson.
In my opinion, Gordon-Levitt is entirely too underrated as an actor. (See The Lookout.) He deserves more credit, and more big roles than he gets. Just because he started out on television doesn’t mean he doesn’t have any acting chops.
The other reasons, Rainn Wilson. That’s right, Dwight K. Schrute. Need I say more?
Herser is a story that centers on a loser twentysomething who invades the life of an awkward 13-year-old who is living with a pill-popping father and grandmother.
Principal photography starts on Monday, in Los Angeles.
For those of us who aren’t British, it means nothing, unless you’re obsessed with V For Vendetta like some of us are.
For that, I implore you to watch V For Vendetta, preferrably on HD DVD, or Blu-ray, by midnight tonight. And in case you’re wondering, here’s what he says in his introduction:
But on this most auspicious of nights, permit me then, in lieu of the more commonplace soubriquet, to suggest the character of this dramatis persona. Voila! In view humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the “vox populi” now vacant, vanished. However, this valorous visitation of a bygone vexation stands vivified, and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin, van guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.
The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous.
Verily this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it’s my very good honour to meet you and you may call me V.
49 words starting with V, if you count his name.
Remember, remember, the fifth of November.
Gunpowder, treason and plot.
I know of no reason why gunpowder, treason
Should ever, be, forgot.
The casting could not have been better! Johansson and Portman used every emotional resource available in battling it out for the kingdom and repairing the resulting damage of the family relationships. Bana was superb as the king who went through wives like most of us go through tissues.
Hello, kids! Today is February 29th! A rarity, since it only comes around every four years! How great is it that it falls on a Friday? That’s just in time for the weekend rush. What films are lucky enough to be released and hopefully find success on this Leap Year? Scroll on down and check it out!
Welcome to this week’s edition of WIB?!
Chicago 10(Limited Release): The US was embroiled in a hotbed of controversy with the anti-Vietnam War protests at the 1968 Democratic Convention. This film focuses on and revisits the subsequent trial of a handful of men who had all fingers pointed at them for allegedly fueling the fire. Will It Bomb? Considering this is a voting year, many of those who are politically minded will attend a screening. I think it’ll bring in a modest amount of money, since it’s in Limited Release.
