F for Fan, that is, Fan of Natalie Portman

Natalie Portman enjoys wide appeal in our household. For one thing, she does a great sketch on Sesame Street called “The Princess and the Elephant,” which co-stars Elmo; and Dan and I heartily enjoyed Natalie’s rockin’ new movie, V for Vendetta, last night.

Of course, when getting your movie reviews from me, it’s important to remember that I enjoyed Million Dollar Baby and The 40-year-old Virgin equally. My definition of “quality” encompasses pretty much all cinematic offerings, possibly excepting Deuce Bigalow, Male Gigolo, and even there, you have to give them credit for a couple of good fish scenes.

Still, V totally kicks ass. We sat on the edges of our seats, and when it was done, we had a fun imagining republicans choking on their popcorn over it.

I read the NYT review today, and I see they didn’t like is as much as we did, but I don’t care since the message of V is power to the people.
