Remember, Remember, the 22nd of May

Because I finally got to see V for Vendetta! Absolutely loved the movie. And I saw it on the IMAX screen, so it was even better! The screenplay especially is fantastic (the dialogues are from the book?)… some excerpts from the IMDB memorable quotes page –

V: Voilà! In view, a 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, as the once vital voice of the verisimilitude now venerates what they once vilified. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone 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 vis-à-vis an introduction, and so it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.
Evey Hammond: Are you like a crazy person?
V: I’m quite sure they will say so.

[after a hail of gunfire doesn’t stop V]
Creedy: Die! Die! Why won’t you die?… Why won’t you die?
V: Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.

Well, all I can say is, if you haven’t seen this movie yet, go book your tickets right now!

I also saw Darna Zaroori Hai yesterday. Now this is what I call a light horror film – not entirely serious, but still creepy in a fun kinda way. You might be confused, but that’s the way it is. Loved the beginning of the movie when the title appears! The story with Randeep Hooda and the one with Rajpal Yadav were also really good. The movie was also technically superior to Darna Mana Hai with all the fancy filters and the slant/low angle shots. All in all, a movie you’ll have fun watching.

I suck at reviewing movies, so if you’re really interested, you can read Karthik‘s reviews of them here and here.

Now for the important news. I’m going on small trip with a few of my friends, we’re visiting Bangalore, Ooty and Mysore. I leave the day after, and I’ll be back on May 30. So no posts till then. And I won’t be online either, so no use messaging me.

Edit: Just noticed that my ‘Broken’ photo made it to the weekly photo contest finals.
