I thought it was one of those theater masks, one happy and one sad, symbolizing comedy and drama.

Yeah, thats right. You need to know about one of our quaint british customs for a change! Guy Fawkes is basically an excuse to have a big bonfire and fireworks, it uses the bones of an old pagan festival and pastes some 15th century politics over it.
Sam is basically right, he's just cranky.

So, if you went by only what was done on the holiday, it's a wannabe 4th of July?

I love it when Americans assume they are the centre of the universe.

Tell you what, you stop using our language, then you can talk to us about your holidays.

Deal?

OK. You obviously don't realize how sarcastic I am.

Guy Fawkes predates the 4th of July by about 100 years... and as I said it was a pagan festival before that... people took to burning effigies of people they disliked so it became guy Fawkes on th fire every year from then on. People burn Tony Blair, George Bush, Bin Laden etc sometimes but mostly its just a generic 'Guy'

It's like calling Hanukah "Christmas for Jews".

What?! We're not the center of the universe?! Well then, the universe must be wrong. lol :P
...and I've heard you use your language, I'm fairly certain we don't speak the same one. :)

Saw the movie last night, I thought it was pretty damned good. Didn't quite get all the little things he said, but that just tells me I need to put down the video game controller and go back to reading the classics.

I've been hearing great things about this flick. I think I'm going to have to go see it when I find the time.

Although, I already know who the man behind the mask is. I didn't want to. Blasted internet spoilers.

In the comic you never got to know who was behind the mask, for good reason.
The person wasn't important, it was his actions that counted.This is what the author wanted us to know.
Now I thought it was a pretty open secret who plays that character of V in the movie, but I'm wondering if the film has been changed so that you now see him as a character without the mask, and if so, this will be a disappointement to me.

The movie was awesome! Absoultely amazing. I know in the forums somehwere we were talking about getting that tingling feeling down your spine in movies, well the last 15 minutes of this movie it didn't stop. The Wachowzki Borthers redeemed themselves for the last Matrix movie.

Oh, you never see his face. Which I am quite happy about.

...and there was a preview for Silent Hill. This movie is going to be the first great video game movie. I am going to scream like a little girl in this movie.
