Third Atlas Shrugged Movie and Kickstarter
« on: September 26, 2013, 05:02:33 pm »
Not only have the first two movies failed to make any money whatsoever, they are now turning to Kickstarter to fund the third.

The irony here is so thick I could cut it with my sword.

Any idea of who might play the roles of Atlas and Shrugged?
I am an old man, and I've seen many problems, most of which never happened.

I tried to watch the first, it was horrible. I couldn't make it through the whole movie, and that's saying something. And really? They couldn't fit that piece of shit in to two movies?

It looks like they'll make their goal easily, too (they have $150,000 out of $250,000 already, and it launched 4 days ago).

Also, the movie is already funded, or so they claim. Supposedly the kickstarter money is mostly for marketing and distribution. (250k should not be nearly enough to fund the whole movie)

You'd think that the first two, being major "Tsar Bombas", would've sent a message but these dorks continue to waste they're money making it.

It's like someone took out their brains and replaced them with oatmeal.

I'm not sure how this is exactly against objectivism, since the people donating are doing so from their free will, and are helping the crappy movie that they love, so it isn't really altruism.

I wonder if the whole cast is replaced again by even lesser known actors, lawl.
I'd be more sympathetic if people here didn't act like they knew what they were saying when they were saying something very much wrong.

I didn't know that there were Ayn Rand movies out there... I might download just to watch for laughs.

Linky to free dl or stream of the 1949 movie, The Fountainhead, based on the other famous Rand novel. Same shit, different scene.

It has it's hilarious moments of over-the-top Old Hollywood style screen writing and acting, and Rand's plots and dialogues are sappy, over-blown as hell to begin with. Still, no doubt a better film than this recent Atlas shit that I'll never bother to watch.

I sympathize completely. However, to use against us. Let me ask you a troll. On the one who pulled it. But here's the question: where do I think it might as well have stepped out of all people would cling to a layman.

Because donation - being used to fund a major project like the finale to some shitty movie based on a shitty book - is "Socialism", one of the things demonized by Ayn Rand.

That's the joke, in case anybody misses it.

WOW! That's some seriously epic irony, there.

I thought the free market determined whether we need another one of this films or not.

Eh, if Left Behind and The Angry Video Game Nerd get their own movies, then something as dumb as an Atlas Shrugged trilogy funded via donations is really quite small potatoes.
