The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen

The Month of Moore continues as co-host Jeffery Heatherly and I discuss Stephen Norrington's The League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen (2003). Based on the graphic novel by Alan Moore and Kevin O'Neill, Jeff and I agree that this action movie isn't entirely without merit, but on the whole doesn't do justice to its intriguing premise. Topics of conversation include Sean Connery's accent, pencil thin mustaches, uneven CGI, dumb marketing strategies and a hypothetical league of American gentlemen. It's an episode that's truly extraordinary - or, at least, more so than this movie.

V For Vendetta

Co-host Jeffery Heatherly and I invite you to remember, remember the fifth of November as we discuss James McTeigue and the Wachowski Brothers' V For Vendetta (2006), which kicks off a series of episodes based on the work of beloved comic book author Alan Moore. Our conversation at times borders on political as we explore the film's themes of government and terrorism, but mostly we stick to our usual shenanigans. We also explore the similarities between the film and George Orwell's classic novel Nineteen Eighty-Four. It's an episode that surely vindicates the vigilant and the virtuous. England prevails!
