Do you remember the 1984 Olympics? No, neither do we, we were watching ‘V’! This week we take a break from movies to look at the original, two-part, three hour mini series event, ‘V’ Forget ‘The Final Battle’, and TRY and forget the weekly TV show, we will remind you why Kenneth Johnson’s WW2 analogy, and love letter to the spirit of freedom deserves a re-appraisal. With a running time that befits the epic-ness of its subject matter, we ponder such subjects as; if ‘V’ had been made in the nineties (and in Canada) would it have stared Barry Van Dyke as Mike Donovan? Why don’t the Visitors just ‘ask nicely’ for all of our water? And what is to come of Kenny J’s long in development ‘V-The Second Generation’? Come see. And Vive le resistance!!!!
