Remembering the 5th with a little V...

Whether you're wearing your Guy Fawkes' inspired mask, reading, or watching a copy of V for Vendetta, today is indeed the 5th of November. With that in mind, it's time to reminisce about this stellar dystopian future tale that was originally released as a comic book series/ graphic novel by Alan Moore and David Lloyd. To commemorate the occasion, here's a You Tube video I found that compiles a collection of clips and scenes from the film adaptation directed by the Wachowski Bros., which featured Hugo Weaving as the elusive freedom fighter vigilante V and Natalie Portman as Evey, released 5 years ago and remains one of the more obscure yet classic movies to this day.

In this tribute video, V goes on to say those epic lines that  many have recited to remember this day, with the BGM "Evey Reborn" playing in the background...

Remember, Remember the 5th of November

"Remember, Remember the 5th of November The Gun powder, Teason and Plot I know of no reason why the gun powder treason should ever be forgot." - V from V for Vendetta
