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.
Everyone knows that the “speech” from the beginning of V For Vendetta is awesome. If you don’t, you should stop reading this, because everyone hates you.
Christopher Silich is a pretty cool guy. Who is he? Glad you asked. He’s the guy responsible for creating this awesome typographic representation of the speech. It’s pretty well done, and reminds me of the commercials that air at the end of NBC sitcoms. Check it out below.
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.
