Despite some pretty serious reservations, I can’t help but get excited about the new Atlas Shrugged movie.
It’s actually looking pretty good.
I’m not sold the woman playing Dagny. The trailer makes her look stiff when she doesn’t appear to be overacting. Hopefully, I’m wrong. If they don’t nail the character of Dagny, the movie falls apart. Also, the guy playing her brother doesn’t feel right either but they showed less of him. Do like the dude playing Rearden though.
Dear Steven Green, The world survived that piece of garbage going for the name of ”Avatar” … I’m looking forward to Atlas Shrugged and will ignore little defects for the first movie not based on Marxist tree hugging nonsense
Dear Mr. Green:
For support of the hypothesis that the AS movie WILL hit our culture like a gigantic gong, check out the some of the 3700 comments after at the Huffington Post posted the trailer:
Pure, irrational fear.
I read some of those comments, pure gold indeed. If this is the reaction to just the trailer, I think the movie (no matter how good or bad) was well worth the $15 million spent on it.
I agree. As to Dagny looking a little stiff, well, that’s how she seemed to me in the book too.
But a wildcat in bed.
Heh. Debut date is April 15.
Meh. I try to stay clear of explicitly ideological movies on both sides of the aisle. They usually feel too ridiculous to enjoy.
Nice move on the debut date, though.
Let’s be honest – there’s no way any movie, no matter how well made, can live up to the book. Like movies made from great books, it simply cannot be done, regardless of the money and talent involved.
The best we can hope for is a reasonably entertaining film – that encourages more people to read the book.
