#21 V for Vendetta (2006)The only thing more captivating than Hugo Weaving’s masterful physicality as V, is Natalie Portman’s gorgeous bald head, in this breathtaking comic book adaptation from the Wachowski brothers of Allen Moore’s “V for Vendetta.” If you don’t remember the fifth of November, then I hope someone burrows a tunnel underneath your house and blows you up, cause everyone should. I remember seeing this movie on my computer screen for the first time, and being blown away by the sound of V’s booming alliteration. Portman as Evey is beautiful, but the character was written originally as a prostitute, so I tried to keep that in mind for the character instead of her being an orphan to enhance the experience of it all. The shape of her skull is entrancing, but maybe I just have a weakness for pretty girls in short hair. The special effects in this move undersell themselves and make it seem as if slow motion is a natural part of life, when paired with the soundtrack, makes for a phenomenal film experience. The verdict? Vengeance.
