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 love bonfire night, i'm going to one tomorrow :D

I feel like such a kid when I go to them though, mostly because as a kid I was scared and I hated fireworks. Now I love both.

Moz, have you noticed the holiday being celebrated with more fervor since that movie was released?
After the first few times I saw it, I have wanted to celebrate it but no one here cares.

I can't say really because I've never seen the movie and I live in England so we always celebrate it :) Tonight has been like a mild blitz with fireworks going off everywhere. I expect the whole of the weekend will be the same.

Essentially, the UK had turned into a Fascist state and V, under the guise of a Guy Fawkes mask, reminds everyone (through his antics) that governments should fear the people, not the other way around.

Also, there is a scene where you can look up Natalie Portman's dress and see her panties.

I hear they LOVE it in South Africa for some reason.

They also have a "big" celebration in Nanaimo. Sadly, not Nanaimo skytrain station :(

Fawkes represented Catholics. He was going to blow up parliament to restore Catholic domination in England.

Great man Guy Fawkes was....a true patriot.

I Do remember the the 5th of November,
The Gunpowder Revolution and Plot.
I see this 'Treason', as a patriotic reason,
Why we, by our gov't should never be forgot.

Great movie by the way....still one of my all time favorites. Probably because of my love of vexating verbage of the vilains verbosity and his vanguard visage verily vindictive and vindicating vows and virtues!

Also, here's another fun fact from the movie. The letter V is also the Roman numeral for 5, as in the character's name and his cell number and the day in Novemeber, that we should all remember.

For a catholic theocracy?


From 1563, legislation evolved which demanded citizens recognise the King as Supreme Governor of the Church. Refusal to submit was punishable by death. The Gunpowder Plot was an attempt by a group of Catholic extremists to assassinate King James I of England, his family, and most of the Protestant aristocracy in one hit by blowing up the Houses of Parliament during the State Opening. Fawkes represented fair authority, righteousness, the good of the people and not the government, and the correct use of power, not corruption.

I appreciate his representation of a man who stands up. The religious aspects are irrelevant to me. Religion was a power source back then much like capitalism or other institutions, the populace is slave to, are today. Try looking at it from the black and whiteness of historical account and view it with the lens of time and human context for freedom from oppression by one's leaders.
