  • Valkyrie: A group of military officers attempt to assassinate the head of state and seize power in a military coup so they can make a deal with their country's enemies.
  • The Valley Of The Gwangi: Cowboys and dinosaurs. That's pretty much it.
  • Velvet Goldmine: Batman/Patrick Bateman writes a newspaper story on King Henry VIII pretending to be David Bowie who had sex with Obi-Wan Kenobi and faked his own death. Later, Obi-Wan and Batman/Patrick have gay sex on a roof. A preteen female fanfic writer's wet dream.
    • If said preteen owns the entire David Bowie, Roxy Music, Cockney Rebel, and Slade back catalogs, sure. Otherwise it's a movie that panders to people who adore Oscar Wilde and/or glam rock. Features Eddie Izzard as a Carnaby Street suit-wearing jerk ass.
