    is it form ORDINARY PEOPLE ……… i think so..

    Oh wow I didn’t know that Atlas Shrugged was going to be adapted into a movie…….and after reading that article and watching the trailer, I wish I never had.

    I actually read all of Atlas Shrugged, since it influenced one of my favorite video games Bioshock. And have to say I plan on skipping this, so I don’t sound like a broken record on how much better the book is.

    I’m not surprised that Atlas Shrugged (Part 1), not a lot of people knew about it and there is very little attention going on with it. Plus it kind of looked bad, maybe a miniseries would’ve been better.

  • I love that Melancholia trailer. I thought Antichrist was a revolutionary step in horror and Dogville was nothing short of mindblowing. This certainly just became one of my top 5 most anticipated films of the year. I guess we’re all assuming it will show up at Cannes, let the Lars Von Trier debate begin!

  • It’s hard to believe Lumet’s gone. I saw “12 Angry Men” more than 12 years ago, and it’s still in my top 20 all-time favorite films.
