    +1. Jesus, that was just......bad. Soooo much yellow/orange wtf.

    There is trend in modern cinematography to make everything orange and cyan. Look at any michael bay film.

    Objectively speaking, this looks laughably awful.

    Also: she was really, really ugly.

    One can't help imagining that a more atrractive Ayn Rand would never have developed the misanthropic worldview for which she became famous.


    And yet she had no trouble getting laid.

    A worthy and fitting tribute to the author.

    I just want to say I love how fucking crazy it is to modernize the setting BUT keep the idea that TRAINS are what make people into ultra-rich tycoons.

    it's like a movie about a telegraph corporation set in 2009.

    Those clips look like something the guy who made that movie The Room created his own rendition of Wall Street.

    LMAO.

    Currently, on Rotten Tomatoes the film has 15/16 critics giving it a bad review.


    According to the average viewer, it has a 85%+ rating.


    It hasn't been released to the public yet.............

    What the fuck are you talking about? Boring!?! Didn't you see that part where that chubby guy raises his voice in anger?

    I have four words that should set every moviegoer's heart racing with excitement-- Moratorium! On! Railroad! Bonds! I mean, what more could you possibly want from a movie? 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 lol'd

    It pains me to watch the Ayn Rand true believers go through contortions to pretend like this isn't a cinematic turd for all time.

    Yeah, but like I posted, look at the user-reviews. Over 6000, with an average of 86%. It hasn't been released to the public yet!

    Like that will mean squat with interested viewers? I can't think of how many movies got panned by the critics yet were a huge hit with the target market. A movie based on the works of someone seen as an icon of the right panned by a bunch of movie critics? Wow, didn't see that coming! [​IMG]

    http://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/roger_and_me/ = 100% on that site. Interesting.
