They wanted V to stand for 'vile'

Just about every person I talk to regularly has already told me I must go see "V for Vendetta." Must. So I will. I wanted to ever since I read a bunch of very odd press reports which tried to bury the film, labelling it as "pulp claptrap" and a bunch of other cheesy insults.

Credit, in a strange way, is due to conservative WorldNetDaily film critic Ted Baehr for being honest about his feelings, calling the film "a vile, pro-terrorist piece of neo-Marxist, left-wing propaganda filled with radical sexual politics and nasty attacks on religion and Christianity." Nevertheless, everyone ran out and saw it this weekend: it was top movie at the box office ($26 million).

I'm also looking forward to Susan Sarandon as Cindy Sheehan... hopefully they can take a page out of Michael Moore or Robert Greenwald and produce it and release it quick, quick, quick -- as a historical biopic, that film wouldn't honor the reason why Sheehan opted to become a public figure; to help end the occupation of Iraq as quickly as possible.
