Interesting.
Rottentomatoes is pretty objective. The Tomatometer doesn't weed out "conservative" reviewers. (I don't even know how that could be accomplished) What's the target market? Tea Party supporters? I doubt that they will buy enough tickets to make the movie a blockbuster.

I hear Alan Greenspan appears in an uncredited cameo role.

I hear theatres are going to be given explicit instructions not to let anyone enter or leave the theatre during that old guy's press conference so that none of the rapt moviegoers are distracted. You pay for the whole seat, but you'll only need the edge! It's so timely as well. I mean, what could possibly have more relevance to our post-modern 21st Century existence than the construction of railroads? They really tapped into the zeitgeist with this one! Is "Atlas Shrugged" the most thrilling movie ever made? "To a successful business partnership." "I'll drink to that." BOOM! HOLY SHIT! I'M CAMPING OUT TO BE FIRST ONE IN LINE TO SEE THIS MOVIE!
I went back and reread this quote. It is just as funny as when you posted it 2 months ago. This post is your magnum opus, Tagutcow.

Christians, Jews; whatever. Just as long as the A-rabs are the villains, it's all good. And according to those leftist America haters over at CNN, the movie "debuted to a decent $1.7 million from 300 theaters." http://insidemovies.ew.com/2011/04/1...ream-4/?hpt=T2 I'll be curious to see how well its box office numbers hold up.

Will probably watch, but really stoned. Seems like one of those comedies that gets really enhanced with weed.

Because most of the post is gibberish, and it's touting a movie that is almost universally panned?

But it took John Travolta to bring Battlefield Earth to the big screen, so who's behind this?
This is funny, because I have never read Rand, somewhat afraid I will not recognize myself later. ~H

The first third of the book was almost strictly character development for the latter portion, so while the first movie is almost guaranteed to be boring, the latter 2/3 of the book crescendos into a magnificent explosion of classically liberal/libertarian perfection. Hands down the best book that I have ever read; hopefully the trilogy can live up to the book, but I have my concerns...
