Plethora of the letter 'V'

Today I watched V for Vendetta. 've heard this one for long, since the day of the conflict between Taksin and My friend told me that the movie is good, suiting the current situation back then. Well, I have had no chance to watch it until it appears on the local rental shop. This weekend is 3 days straight so it is a perfect timing for a good long movie day.

What hit me is not the plot. The plot is good but other things catch my attention more. Again, what makes movie stand ahead in my mind is its dialogue. The character "V" in the movie usually spell out a lots of memorable qoute. For examples, this one was when he introduced himself.

VoilĂ ! 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.

Verily, this vichyssoise of verbiage veers most verbose, so let me simply add that it is my very good honor to meet you and you may call me V.

There are 49 words that begin with "V", most of them require the use of WordWeb, for me. And here is another one, the one just before excessiveness of 'V'.

. Evey Hammond: Who are you? V: Who? Who is but the form following the function of what, and what I am is a man in a mask. Evey Hammond: Well I can see that. V: Of course you can. I'm not questioning your powers of observation, I'm merely remarking upon the paradox of asking a masked man who he is.

It's a nice one. It also refers to The Count of Monte Cristo (1934). I am too lazy to find the 1934 version but the 2002 version is also available at my local rental. Will give it a try someday.
