I believe the only place showing it is that old theater on mill avenue where they play all the artsy crap.





Ill probably get it off the net. I hate going down there.

I saw that sign when I was down there last, didn't really want to head back out that way again. Let me know if you find it online, I will keep my eyes open for it too.

The reviews are horrific.

Of course they are.  Most movie reviewers are socialists and the exact opposite of everything Ayn Rand stood for.

Yep, the previews looked like the movie was really well done; it looked slow but that is to be expected.

Slower than any of the foreign films that the "cinema critics" cream themselves over?

The wifey saw it today and she said it was really good.  She saw it at noon in Tucson and said the theater was packed - mostly with senior citizens.  She said the audience broke out into applause at the end.

Wow. Sounds amazing.



Rotten Tomatoes reviews shit all over it. I will see it no matter what though.

The trailer has too much BS drama, I can't tell if its supposed to be a joke or not.

Went by the Vally Arts theater this afternoon.  45 minutes before the show and the line was at least 200 people deep.  I do want to see this, but I;m not standing in the AZ sun for 1/2 hour to do so.

WHAT!!!! I'm going man, I have the Harkins cups and shirt so for the total for me to see a movie there with all the concessions is only 8 bucks, and there isn't any "No Gun" signs.





Fuck AMC.

Saw it at the Harkin's Superstition Springs last night:

The director and producers didn't have a studio, didn't have actors, didn't have a distribution network, didn't have any of the normal resources required to make and distribute a movie.

They did it anyway. And it's good.

Other than Armin Shimerman I didn't recognize a single actor in the movie. And it didn't matter, because they were good. Taylor Schilling does a great job as Dagny; Graham Beckel (he's had bit parts in Castle and Battlestar Galactica) is outstanding as Ellis Wyatt.

The pacing is a touch slow, but it's meant to be an epic, so that expected. The score is outstanding. Frankly Elia Cmiral deserves an Oscar for the score. He won't get it, but he deserves it.

The biggest problem with the movie - it's "Part 1" of 3. Much like The Fellowship of the Ring, it feels unfinished. And of course it's a rather depressing film because it is only the first 3rd of the book. The movie ends on the iconic scene of Wyatt Oil's burning fields.

I left it as I found it
Take Over
It's Yours


I've always loved that scene...A giant middle finger to the looters.

At $10 million to make the film, and earnings of $2.5 mil in the first week (with only 299 screens) I predict that this movie will be a modest success under the traditional criteria; i.e. it will make it's nut.

On the other hand, we are talking about a book that 50 years after it was published is number 1, 2, and 3 on Amazon.com's political literature best seller's list. (1 and 2 have different introductions, 3 is the audiobook). Thus I predict over 1-million sales of the DVD when it comes out.

I also predict that this is the movie that will make Taylor Schilling a star.

Just saw it, it was fucking awesome.





I had one question though and if you read it, it will ruin the end of the movie. I'll spoiler it. Answer it for me if you can in a spoiler.
