Forgot to post about this, but V FOR VENDETTA (based on Alan Moore's Graphic Novel) came out on dvd this past tuesday. If you haven't seen it yet, check it out.
Remember, remember
The Fifth of November
The gunpowder treason and plot
I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason
Should ever be forgot

I haven't seen this yet,but one thing I heard from a few people is Natalie Portman turns in a performance so bad it makes her acting as Padme in the Star Wars prequels seem Oscar worthy !!

I thought she redeemed herself from the dreaded padme embarrassment.

She starts off stumbling, but by 15min in, she's golden.

But I love her, so I could be blinded by lust.

I don't mind the lust part of her,I just never thought she was a very good actress ! There were rumours that she so much wanted not to be in Episode 3 that Lucas considered replacing her with Keira Knightly,who funnily enough played her handmaiden/decoy in The Phantom Menace !

she can be good when she wants to be. Professional was great, but she was a kid then. I really liked her in V. Give it whirl.

Portman turns in a brilliant preformance in this film, especially the 6 frames of her rolling off a bed dressed like a little girl.
Makes me want to watch Closer again. With mute on and the fast forward button within easy reach, I really ENJOY Portman.
...and that's all I have to say about that.
