The First V for Vendetta film

Taking advantage of the traffic spike to see if I can get more information/attention on this:

Though the new movie is the first time a major studio has made a movie of V for Vendetta, it's not the first time V was put to film. Way back in 1984, a student film was made, roughly eight minutes long. The film was made by Mark Tinkler at Middlesex Polytechnic, and blended art with live-action sequences. It wasn't a full-story adaptation--the movie was only a few scenes from the comic which wasn't even completed at the time. It did utilize the music from David J's V for Vendetta EP. (which you can read more about here.)

If anybody has more information about this piece--or even better, in this day of broadband and YouTube, a copy of the film--then by all means send me a line at I'd love to add as much information about this film when I revise my Movie section.

here - to make things more simple for me (and I apologize if this makes things less simple for you..) I created a blog for you to comment on if you're interested..

This is jenn.
Agh! I've been deleted, as you said. This is a milestone almost - a first for certain =)

Again, I'm really sorry!
Very interesting thanks for sharing.

I am SICK of Hollywood and their team of uneducated derelicts who use subversive methods to convey their ill-informed, LIBERAL agenda!!! This movie glorifies martyrdom, anarchy, terrorism, civil war, and anti-American violence!!! They are targeting out younger generations with a Marvel Comics/ action type of movie and end up inspiring youth to rise up and commit anarchist violence. Read about Guy Fawkes (the main character in the movie) and YOU decide what this man stood for. He was a REAL person and he was an anarchist who used terrorist tactics.

Guy Fawkes (April 13, 1570 – January 31, 1606), also known as Guido Fawkes, born in York, was an English soldier and member of a group of Roman Catholic conspirators who attempted to carry out the Gunpowder Plot on November 5, 1605.

The plot was an attempt to assassinate King James I of England (James VI of Scotland) and the members of both houses of the Parliament of England. To do this, Westminster Palace was to be blown up during the formal opening session of the 1605 Parliament, in which the king would address a joint assembly of both the House of Lords and the House of Commons. Guy Fawkes was in large part responsible for the later stages of the plan's execution. His activities were detected, however, before the plan's completion. Following a severe interrogation involving the use of torture, and a trial in Westminster Hall, Fawkes and his conspirators were executed for treason and attempted murder. Guy Fawkes's failure is remembered with Guy Fawkes Night on November 5.
it's a double edged sword isn't it? I mean, why shouldn't people rise up against the corruption tat is their governments?

not necessarily through the extreme of anarchic violence, but rather by reshaping and remodeling the failed system of "democracy" that we are bogged down with in this day and age.

Governments do not really serve the people in an acceptable way anymore. They are the houses of the rich and elite of society with no room for the common man.

In the usa, you have a president who pretends to be a regular guy when he is an ivy league priveledged guy born with a silver spoon in his mouth. His entire persona is a lie. Not too mention all the other blatant lies that have come from him tat have lead to the untimely deaths of thousands of innocents. Nothing more than a criminal and mastermind mind behind a genocidal attack on a country weakened severly from 12 years of sanctions.

take the pm of britain. completely in bed with liar #1.

the pm of canada, a joke, a puppet and a pawn. soon to be tossed methinks.

v is a bit of fun and it leads one to examine their position on the actions taht v decides to take.

tyrants should be killed, right on the senate floor. just like the good old days. i mean really, the system hasn't made many great strides since gaius julius caeser met his end as a tyrant anyway.

had fawkes succeeded in the destruction of his tyrants, i wonder if the world would be a different place. I can't sympathize with any monarchy at all. a monarchy is a tyrannical structure to begin with.royal blood and divine right is absolute nonsense and a burden on people.
To the annoymous in august, I'm not sure how you think it can cause a rise up of the younger generation when this young generation doesn't seem to have any interest in the current events of the world to begin with. Which is sad. They say children are the future of the world, but chidlren shouldn't have to see the evil we do and the world has been doing a lot of evil as of late.

As for the movie, I think you're taking it a little to serious.

In my opinion V stood for every man who's tryed to rise up against his goverment. He may hve used tactics not everyone agrees on, but he did achive results. Some better then others. I think the both the comic and the movie serve as a warning, of what we can not allow our world to be come.
