Results of recent media testing

(Apologies to jwz.)

I’ll refrain from including
for V for Vendetta below, unlike a certain magazine whose
ending-revealing commentary
I had the misfortune to read before seeing the film.

Some random impressions:

  • The Bill O’Reilly/Rush Limbaugh character is too articulate. Then

again, he’s British. (The Wikipedia article, which includes what is
nearly a scene-by-scene commentary, notes that he may be a jab at
Christopher Hitchens.)

  • London is too clean — it’s simply not squalid enough to be a

convincing dystopia.
