So yeah, it appears as though during Snyder’s downtime from dealing with some of the biggest superheroes in the world, he’s been toiling away on developing something entirely different.

Rand’s book follows an individualistic young architect named Howard Roark who makes the choice to struggle in obscurity rather than compromise his artistic vision, as he favors modern architecture over the establishment-supported traditional style. As with all of Rand’s work, it’s a philosophical work of fiction that deals with topics like individualism versus collectivism, and has been used as a political token in the ensuing years.

[Matt Lewis:] I think the “Rocky” movies, interestingly, not to say that they were written by a Christian or a conservative, I think those are examples of movies that are wholesome, positive values and blockbusters. Obviously sports movies tend to do well in this kind of genre. I think the worst movies are like, the “Atlas Shrugged” movies, which don’t work.

A more recent example of misplaced chutzpah was evidenced in the dreadful Atlas Shrugged trilogy, which, dollar for dollar, may be one of the greatest box-office flops in history … times three.

I recently watched the 2011-2014 three-part film version of Atlas Shrugged. I was struck by the similarity of plots in Atlas Shrugged and Rhode Island’s RhodeWorks truck tolls proposal.

Thing we were unhappiest to learn: Hollywood has made some awful, awful sequels. Some of the many sequels that populate the list are follow-ups to movies that weren’t much good in the first place (Joe Dirt 2: Beautiful Loser; Atlas Shrugged Part III; Look Who’s Talking Now!), but there are plenty of retreads of films that were pretty great the first time around.

Atlas Shrugged. This 1,200-page monster of a book has been split into three films and, so far, no one has seen them. No one. Ayn Rand considered Atlas Shrugged her manifesto and that’s what it is: a manifesto. The action ain’t kicking, folks, and there’s a 70-page-long speech. Although I read Atlas Shrugged (every single grueling word), I can give you the message in three paragraphs. Who thought it was a good idea to make this into a film?

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again; I expect True Blood to go out harder than a train crash in the third Atlas Shrugged movie. This show exists to justify the phrase “Get out while the getting’s good.”

Getting On (HBO, 10:15 p.m.): “The obstreperous Varla returns and clashes with her estranged daughter.” Given that Varla is played by June Squibb, who makes everything better (excepting her turns in Welcome To Mooseport and part one of Atlas Shrugged) this is a clash that is bound to be good.
