The Real Shame . . .

Reader comment on item: Intimidating the West, from Rushdie to Benedict
in response to reader comment: V for Vendetta

The real shame here is that the wonderful comic book this movie is bastardized from takes the exact opposite approach: It is an Orwellian socialist totalitarian state. The book also lacked the pathetic Islamic apologism and ironic attempts to present Muslims in the UK as being besotten victims.

But of course, the original text, much like reality, doesn't jive with the Wachowski Brothers' solipsistic marxist dogma, so it must be altered.

"But people like Portman - she's pretty and smart"

No she's not.
