An Intro From Dave
A year ago I was tasked with a top secret mission. Melanie: I want a list for next July. Like the opposite of everybody else’s “Christmas in July”. Something with a “Dave spin” on it. So my mind went to work. It almost took on several different incarnations before landing here. It could have Christmas Horror. It could have been Halloween themed. Then it started as a random list of movies that got buried in the sands of time that people forgot. That's actually our specialty. But I also included a few that made money but seemed to have been forgotten since then, as I haven’t heard much about them since their release. So hop in, buckle your seatbelt, and remember to keep your hands inside the ride at all times.
Day 7 - V For Vendetta (2005) - Jenn
This is another movie I saw after it had been out for along time. And honestly that was because I wasn’t really sure if it was a movie that I’d like, but boy was I wrong and that is "V for Vendetta". The concept is actually really interesting, or scary. Let’s just go with scary because basically it’s about a society that’s completely controlled by the government, you do exactly what they say. They run your life, and yes that includes curfews. If you don’t go by there rules, they basically take you, and believe me that’s definitely not something that you want. Girl doesn’t abide by the curfew and goes out, gets in trouble, but gets saved by this masked avenger, literally. You never see his face through the whole movie. This guy is basically trying to take down the whole government with help of course. Once she realizes that maybe he’s not so crazy. Does he succeed, well I'm sure some of you have seen it, because it’s become quite a cult classic and if not you just have to watch for yourself and find out. Also if you’ve ever heard the saying "remember remember the fifth of November", this movie is where that comes from. Also from real events but we'll just stick with the movie..
Dave Says - I remember hearing about the making of this movie and that Natalie Portman shaved her head for it. That wasn't enough to bring me to watch it though, until I actually saw the trailer.
Melanie Says - OK I am 99.9% sure I must have see this. We have the mask, actually I think we might have 2 lol. It's basically a version of a play on Guy Fawkes Night (5th November), and it has a plethora of famous people in it. And yet ...... I think I need to watch it again because it isn't quite clicking.
Have you seen it? What did you think?
