Podcast: Atlas Shrugged: Part I (2011)

Ayn Rand's epic 1,168 page fetishization of capitalism finally comes to the big screen. It's 2016 in OBAMA'S AMERICA and Dagny Taggart (Taylor Shilling) tries to run her railroad while drooling liberal strawmen attempt to stop her at every turn. Meanwhile a mysterious John Galt (Paul Johannson) kidnaps (and possibly murders) middle managers around the country.

We usually don't get so overtly political on the podcast (or timely. Three weeks after the election!), but politics aside this is a dull movie that would work better as a well balanced board game. You can check it out on Netflix, or get the very reasonably priced Blu-Ray on Amazon (probably due to the unrestricted free market of the Internet).
