John C. Wright watched V for Vendetta while he was recovering from an appendectomy, and he hated it. I too hated this movie. I was lent the movie by my sponsee, who told me it was His. Favoritest. Movie. EVAR. Unfortunately, I had to tell him I hated it. I actually felt dirty after watching it. John C. Wright captures what I felt well, the smug nihilism of the movie was repulsive. My sponsee was disappointed, but I had to be honest with him. That is one of the worst movies I have ever seen, and not in the artistic sense.
