Valerie’s Story from V For Vendetta

It seems strange that my life should end in such a terrible place, but for three years I had roses, and apologized to no one.  

I shall die here. Every inch of me shall perish. Every inch, but one. An inch. It is small and it is fragile and it is the only thing in the world worth having. We must never lose it or give it away. We must NEVER let them take it from us. I hope that whoever you are, you escape this place. I hope that the worlds turns, and that things get better. But what I hope most of all is that you understand what I mean when I tell you that, even though I do not know you, and even though I may never meet you, laugh with you, cry with you, or kiss you, I love you. With all my heart,I love you.
-Valerie. 

ok, I wanna talk about this little guy right here.

This is Snitter, one of the lead characters from the Plague Dogs, a film that was adapted from another one of Richard Adams books.

the beautiful 2-D animation for this film is perhaps some of the BEST I’ve ever seen in my life. But I’m acutally not here to rag on animation today.

I loved how this film portrayed all the dog’s emotional and psychological journey, but Snitter was the best example. Due to tramatic events in his past where he was accidently somewhat responsible for the death of his ‘Master’ and having a recent brain sugary the poor dog’s grip on reality and memories is greatly distorted. It’s shown so well you really have to see the film to understand but it’s just amazing. Here is the link, the entire film is on youtube please watch it!  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xBxfOvx7QmU

IMPORTANT NOTICE:  THIS MOVIE IS NOT FOR CHILDREN OR LIGHT OF HEART.

So about Divergent...

let me get a few things very clear before i start:

  1. The Divergent Series is my favorite series of all time. I love and adore everything about it. 
  2. I am ridiculously nit picky about book to movie adaptations i almost annoy myself.

With that in mind, here we go:

Overall I quiet enjoyed it. The acting by absolutely everyone was phenomenal. I adored the music (esp ellie goulding) and score. they fit so nicely it was great. They essentially stuck to most of the book which I appreciate but not entirely. Although it was good, the book is soo much better. I’d give it a solid 7/10.

Now time to get into the details (spoilers below):
