Did Anyone See Atlas Shrugged?

Here's a positive review from the Daily Caller. The critics of course don't like it.

Gee, wonder why.

Yesterday, I caught an early viewing of Atlas Shrugged: Part 1, the film adaptation of Ayn Rand’s famous novel. I went in with deep reservations, but I came away impressed.


While the acting is at times melodramatic (I heard a giggle or two from the audience), and the plot is a bit wonky, the movie comes together very well. The directing and dialogue (screenplay by Brian Patrick O’Toole) take a difficult subject with no action and turn out a fast, sleek and handsome movie that pulled this reviewer — no fan of Ayn Rand or epic book-to-movie conversions — right in.

It's in 300 theaters now, but not making very much money yet. It'll probably turn out to be financially successful with PPV and DVD money included, but why leave that up to chance?

By the way, apparently Part II was already shot so you'll definitely get to see that. But Part III remains unshot, so there is a chance that if the film doesn't find support, the ending will go unfilmed.

Oh, My Review: Yes, I'll see it, maybe tomorrow, and get the review up as quick as I can.

I meant to this weekend but felt awful for most of it.

Fancy Becomes Fact: I linked this Friday, but still cool.
