My Ten Favorite Movie Characters

I. Love. Movies! That’s been the tagline of my blog since its inception in December 2016. And what is the basis of a great movie? An awesome character.

If you’re wondering who exactly “V” is he’s basically Batman; a British vigilante who becomes a symbol to fight oppression. This film, part of DC Comics’ vast repertoire of stories and based on a graphic novel, feels so relevant now in our time when the world feels like it’s on the verge of flames.
