MOVIE REVIEW: Atlas Shrugged, Part One

Wil Avitt's picture

I was a bit delayed in watching this movie, so by the time I got around to the theater on Sunday, two days’ worth of reviews were already posted. I didn’t read any of them, but I did check out the rating on Rotten Tomatoes, just to get a rough idea of what I was getting into. The viewer rating was a very good 85%, but the critic rating was a basement level at a mere 10%. Suffice it to say, opinions are a bit mixed. I would place my own rating somewhere in between, but teetering more towards 10 than 85.


Pretentious People Refuse To Admit Things They Like Are Science Fiction

I like science fiction, right? No big question about that. I’m an unrepentant geek, and I have been for as long as I can remember. (Though my memory isn’t quite as good as it probably would have been, had I not received so many beatings from the other kids when I was young, all of them because I was a geek. I probably had it coming to me.) The point being that I’m sort of biased towards SF the way most guys are biased towards football or NASCAR: I just love it, and there’s no real reason why.
