It's probably the worst $35 million movie ever made, but somehow strangely compelling.

I just started the third one and this may be unwatchable. The first two are in the 20s on Metacritic. This one has a 9.

Same. They're so bad they're watchable in a so bad they're good way. I've been laughing the whole time.

Tons of great character actors. But the book was a very bad book and the trilogy is extremely faithful.

It should be on the list of books you can choose from. It's terrible as literature and terrific as an introduction to the principles of free markets.

The Fountainhead is actually pretty good

Atlas Shrugged is like reading a capitalist political manifesto as dictated by wooden terrible characters.

The audience is beaten over the head with the ideology.

Also, its STILL ABOUT TRAINS but takes place in modern times.

The train part is pretty hilarious in modern times, but makes sense as a way of tying together steel and copper and finance. It also sort of hilariously endorses monopolies by using single individuals as symbols of industry.

Would have been trivial to make it about microprocessors and bitcoin.

Peterman could have had a cameo.

Albert S. Ruddy - producer of The Godfather, Million Dollar Baby, and other 180 films - really wanted to make Atlas Shrugged into a movie starting around the early 70s.

Unfortunately Rand was so obstinately jewy about creative control that it languished in development hell for close to 40 years before he said “fuck it.”

It’s a stupid book but could have been a 180 movie with Ruddy helming the production... would have been an A-List cast top to bottom and someone like Coppola or David Lean would have directed.

Neckbeard here. I saw the first one in a theater. It wasnt quite as bad as the reputation but it wasn't good. Never watched the second and seriously had no idea they made a third. Very sad.
