E for Excellent

You don't come here for movie reviews. Or, if you do, you must often be disappointed. Here's one anyway.

The worst enemy of life, freedom and the common decencies is total anarchy; their second worst enemy is total efficiency.

Aldous Huxley

I don't claim to be a movie critic. There's no reason for you to believe I have any skill at it.

Remember, remember the fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I see no reason why gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot

Go see V for Vendetta anyway. It's excellent.

If there is no struggle there is no progress. Those who would profess to favor freedom and yet renounce controversy are people who want crops without ploughing the field.

Frederick Douglass

Ok, so this hardly constitutes a proper movie review. But on the plus side, there are no spoilers either. Just go see it.
