    A movie no one watched based on a book only cranks read is going to change the face of American politics......

    Atlas is not the only one who shrugs.

    The fact that you would remind us only proves you're more fucking retarded than had been originally established,

    and that set the bar pretty darn high back then.

    I see Atlas Shrugged in the DVD bins at the Dollar Store

    Is it worth the investment?

    I watched it and I thought it was overall boring. Good political movie though for people who dont already understand what crony capitalism is.

    I read the book about 20 years ago. Good book if you don't have attention deficit disorder, lol. The movie followed the book better than I expected, and I thought they did a good job getting the "mood" of the book as written so many years ago.

    You didn't read the book?

    Hence morons on the left. It was a book before hollywood turned it into a movie for you.

    dear lord, this is why we are in deep shit these days.

    Did you read her book? And get back to me when you analyze it. Lord almighty no wonder we are so screwed up when a person on the net thinks a movie can substitute for her thoughts.

    You really truly make me want to vomit child.

    Here's where I am on it. I devoured everything at the time. Ayn Rand to Castenada, my mind was open.

    So I won't judge it that way.

    But then that's me.

    Hehe- I wasn't even aware than I'm a crank. :D It's a good thing that I come here, so that I can learn these things. ;)
