How the hell did a sequel get made? Didn't the first one only make twenty bucks or something?

Maybe they're hoping they'll become B-movie classics if they crank out enough of them.

Oh wow, I'm gonna be there opening night.

All those CEOs and billionares are just so gosh-dang powerless when the gubbmint passes legislation! Don't you feel sorry for them? Its not like they exert an obscene amount of influence through lobbyists and SuperPACs or anything. The world can only be saved from the evils of socialism through the power of hour-long speeches!

Yeah, I can't help but laugh when I watch that and take in the premise. In real life, we have the exact polar opposite of what's going on in that clip. Don't get me wrong, what that movie is about, if things were in that situation, sure that'd be a drag, too, however we're so far from such a scenario it's not even funny.

Silly attitude. Reminds me of all those actors I hate because they have portrayed murderers.

It couldn't possibly be about one artist whose work is bringing other artists pieces to life bringing another artists piece of work to life.

Why would you lose respect for an actor that takes on a role from a work you personally dislike?

When was the last time you spoke with Robert Picardo, and listened to his opinions and experience on ... anything?

You objectify him as that crazy robot doctor and that guy from China Beach, and so long as he serves your masturbatory political fantasies he's number one guy.

There was a time when Rand had something like a point. During the Thirties and through the Cold War it appeared that the world had only three political possibilities. Fascism was sweeping through Europe. Communism was expanding and Western Capitalism was in the throes of a world wide depression and appeared to be on its deathbed. Objectivism offered a philosophical alternative. It was a morally and logically flawed philosophy which was deeply dehumanizing but it WAS a philosophy.

Ayn Rand was an atheist opposed to organized religion, she had several abortions and she carried on affairs with married men. She also cashed her Social Security checks late in life. You'd be hard pressed to find a bigger hypocrite.

How her bankrupt philosophy ever became the touchstone for Republican politicians who are supposed to at least pay lip service to organized religion in general and Christianity in particular is a mystery for the ages.

Ah.............a Fark Ayn Rand thread. Somewhere, an angel is about to be butt-raped.

I'm not going to waste any time in this thread trying to earnestly play devil's advocate, going back and forth with people who are just going to accuse me of being the Rand cult follower that I'm not. I'll just make a quick statement and then immediately leave, never to return this thread again. Here's my statement. I'm not an Ayn Rand fan. Atlas Shrugged didn't change my life. I'm not an objectivist. I've never seen these movies and I'm sure they are pretty weak. BUT...........it really bugs me that, both on sites like Fark and in real life intellectual discussions, if you even hint at suggesting at presuming to say a single complimentary thing about any idea Ayn Rand ever had in her entire life, you are insulted, condescended to, and dismissed. She wasn't evil. She wasn't dumb. She was just a lady with some strong philosophical and political ideas. Not all were valid, but some certainly were, and are worth reading and discussing. Most Americans fundamentally disagree with the Communist Manifesto, but does that mean there are ZERO valid ideas in it that are worth discussing? Of course not. On the contrary, there are plenty, and it's an important work that everyone should at least read once. But somehow, the name "Ayn Rand" has become to the left what "Karl Marx" is to the right.............just saying the name out loud and suggesting that there might be some ideas worth considering automatically makes you a stooge, a child, or worse. And I think that's pretty sad. I think it says a lot about discourse in America, and I think it says a lot about the intellectual curiosity of most people.

It's so predictable that I know right when I hit "add comment", someone will completely prove my point, quote me out of context and accuse me of being a "Randroid" or a "Rand-tard" or something hilarious like that. Oh well. Again, I have interest in seeing or defending this movie. I've just seen enough Fark Ayn Rand threads to know exactly how this is going to go.

When the premise of your philosophy is that self-interest is God and that helping others is morally wrong, then many people will probably discount your philosophy outright. You can't build a philosophy on shaky ground and then expect people to dig through to find the nuggets of wisdom. Did Rand have any good ideas? Probably. But then lots of stupid evil people have good ideas. In fact I will venture to say that most people at some point in their lives have at least one good idea. This does not make you a genius or a prophet. Even a broken clock, etc, etc.

Also, please provide an example of a good idea that Rand had and we can engage in polite and open-minded, intellectually honest discourse about that. My guess is that after laying down your presumptuous post you have already fled to bigger and better things.

I doubt that most Republican officials have actually sat down and read, must less understood, Atlas Shrugged. In fact, I doubt most of the people claiming it to be a model for Republicanism have read it. Allow me to explain:

Atlas Shrugged: My name is Hank Rearden, owner of Rearden Steel. I have developed a metal alloy that is superior to all others. My competitors, rather than spending the time and money to develop a comparable material, have successfully lobbied government agencies to declare my metal unsafe. This has led to me being unable to secure contracts for my alloy. As a result of this unfair treatment I, along with some of my friends who have been similarly treated, am withdrawing from society.

Present day: We are International Midwestern Conglomerate Corp. Along with our textile, meat processing, and real estate ventures, it appears one of our technicians (who by virtue of their intellectual property agreement will continue making $25,000 a year) has discovered a metal alloy superior to all others. We have entered into an agreement with our competitors whereby they will buy our remaining stock of steel and we will withhold our new metal in order to create an artificial market for the "next best thing." In return they have granted us concessions on government bidding priority. We hope that this arrangement precludes the possibility that our stockholders will see any repercussions during the time our steel mills are down for the changeover. Not to fear, employees have been given a 3 week furlough while our Malaysian contractors reconfigure the plants.

One of these things is not like the other.
