One of the most pedantic, unengaging, and insufferable films I can remember

I don’t want to sound like a broken record, but V for Vendetta is absolutely, positively, bar none, my favorite movie ever. There is literally nothing I don’t like about it.

Pulp Political Posturing, Just an Overgrown Comic Book
