Atlas Shrugged Part 2 tomorrow!

One day I saw Atlas Shrugged Part 1 (trailer below) on Netflix and had never heard of it, but decided to watch it. I watched the movie on my Kindle Fire while sitting in the library at Sheppard AFB, Texas (while in tech school) and I could not tear myself away from the screen. I could’ve gone back to my room to finish it, but I couldn’t find the power to hit the pause button, I was that entranced by the movie.

 

Atlas Shrugged is a novel by Ayn Rand published in 1957 which is being made into three movies. Part one was released last year, and was considered a box office flop (it also has a 11% rating on Rotten Tomatoes). Fortunately this didn’t prevent the continuation of the story as Atlas Shrugged Part Two is in theaters tomorrow. I’m more excited for this movie than any other movie coming out this year, and from the trailer (below) I can tell it won’t disappoint.

    Wow, if you were entranced by the Part 1 movie, you simply must read the book. The book is long, but a lot better, in my opinion. After a while, it’s difficult to stop reading. The characters are much more powerful and heroic, and the plot is more complex, but better developed, logically.

      I started reading the book awhile back but got sidetracked. Definitely look forward to finishing it at some point.
