Attack of the “V” Movies

“Voilà!  In view, a humble vaudevillian veteran, cast vicariously as both victim and villain by the vicissitudes of Fate. This visage, no mere veneer of vanity, is a vestige of the vox populi, now vacant, vanished.  However, this valorous visitation of a by-gone vexation, stands vivified and has vowed to vanquish these venal and virulent vermin van-guarding vice and vouchsafing the violently vicious and voracious violation of volition.  The only verdict is vengeance; a vendetta, held as a votive, not in vain, for the value and veracity of such shall one day vindicate the vigilant and the virtuous. [laughs] Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it's my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.” – V, V for Vendetta

(And if you are thinking that I am doing this category just so I can use this quote….then you’d be right.)

As usual I am going to pick a variety of movies, some very well known and some veering outside the usual.  The only thing they will always have in common is that their titles start with the letter “V” (not counting the articles "a" and "the").

As I post the reviews, I will come back and post the links to them here:
On to the reviews…

    1. Thanks. Three minutes between posting and getting a comment. That's a new record for me. Jack, tell the lady what she's won....Jack?....Jack?....Sorry, looks like he's not here at the moment. I'm sure it would have been a lovely parting gift.

    1. Thanks. I do. Before I started this blog I sat down and brainstormed around 80 movie categories. I wanted to see if I would have enough ideas for unique groupings to not run out in a year. Since then I've thought of another 50-60 that I've added as they occur to me. Sometimes I actually start with a quote I like, which then inspires the category. For instance, the quote from Easy A about wanting her life to be like an 80s movie "preferably one with a really awesome musical number for no apparent reason" directly inspired that movie category that I did in the early days.
