Guy Fawkes Night../ V for Vendetta

To many of you, the image above is just a mask that was used in the movie V for Vendetta. To many others, it is a mask of the man who was very close to change the history of Britian.. although his plan failed.. yet till this day.. people remember him.. and his "idea"..
Guido Fawkes or Guy Fawkes as he was known was a member of the English Roman Catholics who have attempted to cary out the Gunpoweder plot in 1605... November 5th.

The Gunpowder Plot" was a plan to assassinate the Protestant King James I (James
VI of Scotland) and the members of both houses of the Parliament of England, by exploding Westminster Palace during the formal opening session of the 1605
, in which the King addressed a joint assembly of both the House
of Lords
and the House of Commons. Fawkes was in large part responsible for the later stages of the plan's execution. His activities were detected before the plan's
completion, and following a severe interrogation involving the use of torture and a
trial in Westminster Hall before Judge John Popham, he and his co-conspirators were executed for treason. Fawkes's failure (or the attempt) is remembered by Guy Fawkes Night (also known as Bonfire Night or Fireworks Night) on 5 November

Remember, Remember
The fifth of November,
The gunpowder treason and plot.
I know of no reason
Why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot
This is how the movie starts.. with the same ryhme.. Its focal point is the importance of an idea.. and that history can change by an idea.. interesting concepts .. and more lovely quotes..

Beneath this mask there is more than flesh. Beneath this mask there is an
idea, Mr. Creedy, and ideas are bulletproof.
further quotes

If we'd talk about the effect of media on our thinking behaviour let me tell you.. as much as there are many political movies...this movie is one smart political "thought".. Yes a "thought" ..
To me.. a movie is worth watching if it made me think of things and reflect on others.. if it made me discuss it and google it and search for facts.. a good movie is one that wakes up my brain cells from their hybernation status and makes them question several things.. political/social/environmental/etc !
When u watch a movie you have all the freedom to CHOOSE whether you liked the thoughts.. hated them... found them disgraceful or unethical.. but you actually watched it and probably till the end.. you listened to what you thought was worth it.. you learnt something new .. something useful.. and you moved on without necessarly having it affecting your ACTIONS ...
What where the movies that stirred the pot of your thoughts...?
A Lost Dot
You would watch a movie..and question its concepts.. but you might not "talk" to a person with the same thought as the movie....because you don't believe in his concepts........!!!!!
how ironic..

I love your ending's so true! As for movies...right now, only two things come to my mind: 21 grams (the movie) and Da Vinci Code (the book...NOT the movie).

21 grams has an opening sentence that says 'when we die, we lose 21 grams of our weight (when the soul comes out of its body) is this the weight of life?' and the movie leaves you moved. i loved it. as for the book, da vinci code was very interesting because there was so much in there that I didn't know of (the Templars, the paintings, the codings etc). It's always good to learn :)

I've seen the movie but I never knew all this information.

One movie that really stirred my whole life was 'The Shawshank Redemption'. I wrote about here.
