So I Just Got Back From Watching ‘Atlas Shrugged’….


As luck would have it, Mr. LC and I had a sitter tonight so we took advantage of the occasion to go see Atlas Shrugged on the big screen. I really didn’t know what to expect, especially after reading, via SmittyLadd Ehlinger’s pan right before leaving for the theater. Now, Ladd’s a filmmaker who knows more about camera angles, lighting and dialogue than I do. I mean, today I watched the Phillies game and a little Fox News. When we got home the kids had Happy Gilmore on.

Seeing that I haven’t stepped foot in a movie theater in the past ten years, I’m no expert on cinematography, or whatever you call it. But I can tell you, I really enjoyed the movie. I was a little hesitant, since I sort of felt like I dragged Mr. LC out on a rainy Sunday evening, but he didn’t seem to mind. He hasn’t read the book, but said you really didn’t need to in order to get the message.

I had no problem with the film being set in the future – 2016 to be exact. It’s not that unbelievable that in four years we’ll have a horrific economy while politicians and lobbyists try to even everything out and make us all equal. It’s pretty much life as I envision it will be if Obama gets re-elected in 2012. It was hard to tell the difference between some of the characters and the insane fictional names of legislation from what we hear every day in reality.

I guess if you’re looking for some blockbuster with with all sorts of special effects and big name actors you may be disappointed. But if you’re a believer in capitalism looking for a little entertainment, knowing your hard earned dollars are helping to spread a free market message, then I would recommend the movie. My only complaint is that we were left wanting more, which I suppose is by design. Now we have a reason to enter a movie theater again, hopefully in April of 2012.
