The Story goes, in 1605, there were a bunch of 13 men who come up with the Gunpowder Plot, who tried to blow up the Palace of Westminister in London.
The plotters actually secured a lease of the underground chambers and filled it up with gun powder! But it failed...
Since then, every year to date, November the 5th is Celebrated to commerate how England escaped getting blown up!
On a modern note, the best movie to watch (which I did)is
V for Vandetta!
Starring Hugo Weaving (Agent Smith from Matrix) and Natalie Portman (Queen Amidala from Star Wars), the film is about bioterrorist ruling London like North Korea and V, the masked hero blowing things up and overthrowing the evil rule!
Kick ass movie that you would not mind watching over and over again! Some sort of a fusion between Max Payne, Punisher, Zorro and Phantom of the Opera!
