Mendo reviews the long-delayed movie adaption of Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged, now a Tea Partier's wet dream: It's 2016, the economy is in the crapper, and major figures of industry and finance (provided you believe a guy named "Midas Mulligan" can rise to a position of any prominence) begin to mysteriously disappear, going on strike to protest Big Government. Meanwhile, Dagny Taggart, VP of the country's most important railroad, and Hank Rearden, owner of the country's most important steel company join forces to save the economy and answer the burning question (and meme-before-memes-were-a-thing): Who is John Galt?
The Host (2013)
“Stephenie Meyer does for the alien invasion genre what she did for vampires and werewolves: she takes away everything you love about it, stuffs it with her own bizarre mythology, and uses it mostly to create a love triangle and romantic angst.”An Interview with Albert Moses, Beloved British Character Actor
“It’s not easy to make your way in a strange country, but to make your way and end up a Knight of the Order of St. John? Not such an easy thing to do. Throw in some documentary work, motorcycle stunts, and being James Bond’s costar not once, but twice, and that sounds like a sweet deal to me. The only man I know of who did all this is Albert Moses, so join me as we discuss crass comedy, Dinka documentaries, manic Maharajahs, and much, much more!”Moonraker (1979)
“This film is not boring. But then, neither is racing down the highway in a car that’s on fire.”Space: 1999 “Breakaway”
It was a classic of science fiction history... that was boring and made no sense. Seriously, there is a reason you are the only person at Comic Con dressed that way.Ender’s Game (2013)
“Unfortunately, Ender is the only one who ever becomes fleshed out in three-dimensional form, with the rest of the cast seemingly there only to justify his bloody-yet-brilliant existence. It’s like having a high performance sports car and only being able to race it against family minivans.”Return to Oz (1985)
“Can’t say I really blame Aunt Em for wanting to strap Dorothy up to the electroshock machine. WTF kind of stuff is she telling people? Can’t Dorothy just tell them about the cute stuff, like the Lollipop Guild or whatever? I think if she had focused more on the non-creepy aspects of Oz, Aunt Em would be praising her for her creativity and imagination, not sending her off to Dr. Shocker, erm, Worley.”
