So I saw "Atlas Shrugged 1 ,2"
They were great movies. I think its the case that the book is going to be a thousand times better than the movie, though having not read it I can only
Its a story of individualism VS the moral charge of those who use the needs of others to advance their own interests while not actually working for
their goals. Its not really science fiction, though it has aspects of it.
I would recommend it. Its worth a watch and owning a copy of. Great production, excellent story and plenty of food for thought. I think it is very
fitting for the world we are faced with now. Funny how people in the 60s knew the things we would be facing now, or forever really.
The title is based on a conversation in the story where the concept of Atlas, a Titan who holds the world up on his shoulders is faced with a question
of what to do when more effort to hold the world up only produces more weight on his shoulders. He shrugs. What can he do?
To the world that holds ours up: what do you say to those who use false morality and force to take what is yours...Who is John Galt?
EDIT TO ADD:
Someone mentioned KPAX. That is a great story. I have nothing but good things to say about it. Its a thought provoking story that leaves you with
allot to question about the sanity in blind living in a world where reality is self imposed not experienced.
ZedVSzardoz....LOL Yeah I actually liked that movie. It was one of the first I saw as a kid. It has a good story, is a little campy as was said but
ultimately if youre not laughing your ass of while watching it you are delving into deeper thinking.
Aeonflux.... This was a SPECTACULAR animated series that was WAY ahead of its time. The story is incredibly well written with superb dialogue and
visual thought provoking masterpieces. If you were like me growing up in the 90s, you would watch it religiously after Bevis and Butt Head. I havent
seen the movie yet, though I expect it to be a pile of Hollywood caca. We will see. If you havent seen this series, please do. I cant stress enough
how awesome it is and WAS for its time.
The Fall.... another mind altering story. Its really one of the best movies ever produced. Such a great story and such a cool way of story telling. If
you havent seen it yet, do so. Its a must see. Its one of those movies you can watch a thousand times. Beautiful.
Red lights...... was another conspiracy theory type movie well worth a watch or 3. Its SOOO well written and the actors are stellar. I highly
Cyborg Cop....I just saw this today. It was what I expected. If it had a bigger production I imagine it could have given Robo cop a run for the money.
I hated the actor chosen for robocop....I mean the cyborg. LOL It was a good story that combined several concepts shown in other sci fi stories. There
wasnt too much that was visually offensive...I think the shoulders and helmet for the cyborg cop were dumb. The rest of his costume was cool though.
The story itself was cool. Its not worth a watch though if you feel like it, MEH...
Cloud Atlas...WOW, I still think about this movie and I last watched it last year. Its a convoluted yet understandable story with allot of layers. Its
really good. Just watch it if you havent. Its worth owning a copy of.
