"If you ask the average film critic about the new movie adaptation of Ayn Rand’s 'Atlas Shrugged' they will tell you it is a horrible movie. If you ask the average conservative or libertarian they will tell you it is a great movie. Objectively, it is a mediocre movie at best. Subjectively, it is one of the best mediocre movies you’ll ever see. And of course this is based entirely on the subject. If it has become a Hollywood cliche to make movies about greedy capitalists vs. benevolent government, Rand’s famous novel radically restructures this pedestrian narrative." (04/18/11)
