    V is for Vomit: The Vile and Vicious Vitriol of Anti-Terror War Villians

    Although I thoroughly enjoyed the work of Joel Silver and the Wachowski Brothers in the Matrix movies, I must say that I was thoroughly disappointed in this V for Vendetta. I thought UltraViolet was bad because it at least pretended to be an action flick that hide its anti-Christian underpinnings, but this V was very vicious in its vitriol against a fascist leader who appears to be much like our American President and his anti-terrorist administration. Words like "terrorist" and "national security" are stolen from contemporary culture to make a political point that ultimately is a slippery slope fallacy. The problem with slippery slopes is that most of the time, the slide could not, and usually will not, lead to the extreme situation that is portrayed. Some try to argue that the PATRIOT ACT was designed to remove freedoms, and yet these same people ignore the fact that this new Act has saved lives, lives that would have been taken by terrorists. Oh, my bad, "freedom fighters," the new euphemism for those we have sympathy for even if their cause is unjust and evil. Anyway, the movie is nothing more than a bad political statement and commentary against the US government and its policies under the current administration of Bush Jr using England as a cloak. The double horizontal beam crosses used as a symbol of the oppressive government is no coincidence, and it is not appreciated. Why use that symbol instead of a Nazi Swastika or an Islamic crescent moon? Can anyone say anti-Christian rhetoric? I'm glad this film died at the box office. And I'm sure it will die an equally slow death in video release. In a way this movie is worse that anything done by 911 US government, wild, inside job conspiracy theorists and Michael Moore combined because it seems to speak truth while deceptively distorting the reality it seeks to portray using this art form. Michael Moore pretended to do a "documentary" about 911 and used deception, lies, and half-truths. V for Vendetta simply made me Vomit because it was a more stylish Version of the Vitriolic nonsense Michael Moore represents. The movie made same-sex relations seem angelic and beautiful, and of course portrayed those opposed to such ideas as evil, corrupt and violent towards them. Perhaps there are people opposed to homosexual relations that are evil, corrupt, and violent, but that is by no means the norm. There are those who are loving and caring towards those they disagree with, and therefore caricatures of anyone who disapproves of the "gay" lifestyle are just that -- stereotypical distortions. V is not so much for Vendetta as it is for Victimization. Those who stand up for true righteousness and justice were victimized by this movie, while those with a false sense of what is right and just were turned into heroes. Thank God reality is much better than V fiction. The one good thing I will say is that it is good to question your government and make sure it does not go too far, but it is not good to do that by deception, lies, distortions, misrepresentations, assumptions and slippery slopes, using the very tactics you decry in the government you may have a problem with.

    A very anti-Christan movie

    If you are a Christan I would not advise you to see this movie. This movie attacks christans and America in the usual Hollwood liberal Jew way. Instead of just coming out and saying how much they HATE christans and this country they hint at it all though the movie. This movie is just Hollywood liberals preaching their pro gay, anti- christan way of life.
