Mmmm, dat domino scene.

Well, I like V's little v shpeal: "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. However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin vanguarding 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 honor to meet you and you may call me V. "

I also liked: "Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof. "

and I liked this exchange with Evey

Evey Hammond: Who are you?
V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask.
Evey Hammond: Well I can see that.
V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.
"Suddenly Frodo noticed that a strange-looking weather-beaten man, sitting in the shadows near the wall, was also listening intently to the hobbit-talk. He had a tall tankard in front of him, and was smoking a long-stemmed pipe curiously carved. His legs were stretched out before him, showing high boots of supple leather that fitted him well, but had seen much wear and were now caked with mud. A travel-stained cloak of heavy dark-green cloth was drawn close about him, and in spite of the heat of the room he wore a hood that overshadowed his face; but the gleam of his eyes could be seen as he watched the hobbits."

Right, no problem. I keep forgetting how convenient cable tv is in the US.
Tuor wrote:There are several good quotes in the movie.

All the great stuff comes from the comic. Personally, I can't stand the movie, because it takes all that crisp and brilliant Moore dialogue and makes it into political tool for the Wachowskis.

"Gee we really think the Bush administration sucks, but we couldn't think of our own story or dialogue to say it, so he's here is someone else's story with almost all moral ambiguity removed."

The great part about the Moore story is that you can decide for yourself if anarchy is better than facism or vice versa, or if they're both crazy and inhumane and something no rational person would follow. Sure Moore prefers anarchy, but he has V do some bonechillingly cruel stuff to drive the point home, that V is a fanatic, not a hero. The movie tones it down considerably.

*shrug* I was aware there was a comic, and suspected most of the good lines came from there. Oh well.

I recommend the comic, it's one of my favorites. Some people get turned away by the art though.

Of course it's totally cool if you loved the movie, tons of people do, fact is all the Guy Fawkes mask wearing stuff is only due to the popularity of the movie. Just wanted to present my point of view.

Well now that we have the timeline, it might be easier to predict where it will be. Or at least, I hope so. It should be fun in a way to predict it's placement.

I think the problem for the art is it is really dark with minimal contrasting brightness combined with the old 4 color printing can make it a bit straining. My bigger gripe is that Alan Moore can be too verbose and at times he doesn't write in the characters voice as much as his own voice.

Well then, it'll sure be a fun ride for you. Thought you already had watched at least some of it with Stuff around and all.

Actually, haven't seen her or Lily on as much lately.

I have never seen either on FX. Then again I don't watch a lot of actual television anymore.

Episodes 1-75 in three torrents:
http://kat.ph/animaniacs-dvd-collection ... 61883.html
http://kat.ph/animaniacs-dvd-collection ... 81033.html
http://kat.ph/animaniacs-dvd-collection ... 99197.html

Episodes 76-99 never got released on DVD outside Russia(and that release is dubbed) so they're harder to come by, and usually have poor audio and video quality. Youtube has some of the 76-99 episodes last I checked, so you can download those via a converter like http://www.clipconverter.cc/ if you're desperate.

Also:
http://kat.ph/animaniacs-wakko-s-wish-h ... 07358.html

Wakko's Wish I don't like the movie, but since it's the "finale" you might want it. If you've never downloaded a movie split in .rar files, the way it works is, you download all of it, and once it's done, you unpack part01 and it'll unpack the entire movie into a single file.
