Atlas Shrugged Part 1

The movie. Having never read the book, the movie was pretty entertaining. It's really sad when you have to photoshop a high speed rail in America. Everything else seemed 100% correct.COMMENTS (8) | MOVIES | DIGG

Ayn Rand and the Prophecy of Atlas Shrugged
Edit: As much as I hoped that movie would be decent, it was a snoozer for the most part. It did stay true to the plot and message which was nice to see. I think the prospects for a 2nd and/or 3rd part are quite dim unfortunately.

|If you haven't read the book, I would highly recommend it. Other than the romance stuff from a woman's point of view the book is excellent!|
I've heard that the movie is terrible compared to the book but then again most movies are.

|I haven't read Atlas Shrugged yet, but I read The Fountainhead.|
That book is EXTREMELY well written (Ayn Rand is probably the best prose writer ever - and I consider that a separate distinction from storyteller), and the message is fantastic, but man - I had such a hard time getting through it. I need action and death and fantastical shit happening in my fiction. It took me like a week to read through A Game of Thrones, but The Fountainhead took me a month at least.
I couldn't digest huge portions at a time like most books. Too much to consider before moving on.

|I'm often under fire (English as a profession) because I've never read it. My wife has a degree in English (which she doesn't use) and mocked me for not reading it before remembering that she hasn't either. It's funny because I saw that on amazon and almost ordered it, and then yesterday I went to redbox and almost rented it. :p|
Maybe tomorrow I'll see the book and almost buy it.

|I was hoping for better but besides the sub-par acting it was alright|

|I read the book last year. It's a good book, and it's an eye-opener as to what's around you. How politicians and lies and the have-nots conspire to take from those who earn it.|
The book makes the case for Robin Hood as a crook.
I mean, Robin Hood is blindly celebrated for taking from the rich and giving to the poor. That's theft, and it's what modern welfare is today.

I haven't read the book, but I'm pretty sure you're really missing the point about Objectivism. It was a bolshevik-american revolution, brother!

|Objectivism is like, the complete opposite of Communism. I don't understand how you can compare it to the Bolshevik revolution?|
