    They should of just made a real railroad movie based on Vanderbilt, Gould and Drew. This looks horrible.

    It has a "Battlefield Earth" quality to it.

    Looks like it's an accurate adaptation of the novel at least.

    It should be an animated comic movie. The caricatured qualities of the characters aren't well suited for real actors.

    Funny, I always thought the Ayn Rand Institute/The Atlas Society had a kind of Scientology-esque recruitment philosophy. Certainly I remember in high school there would be ARI essay contests in the like. Perhaps this movie is an attempt to capitalize on Tea Party discontents, and use it to sell Ayn Rand's philosophy to middle America.

    But it took John Travolta to bring Battlefield Earth to the big screen, so who's behind this?

    Maybe Alec Baldwin (in character as Jack Donaghy)?

    Objectively speaking, this looks laughably awful.

    Loved the book, but movie versions rarely compare.
