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 Help (2011)
Emma Stone is a White Savior character in 1960s Mississippi who writes a book about the black maids in town (Viola Davis, Octavia Spencer), which makes all the white people in town feel bad about racism. It also makes a buttload of money for Emma, while leaving the maids worse off then before. Whoops!The Time Traveler’s Wife (2009)
“In the movie’s defense, it tries to dial down the pedo vibe, but it’s a bit futile when the source material is this inherently creepy.”Why the Airlines have Bigger Problems than Fat Movie Directors! by Lloyd Kaufman
“The recent flap about Kevin Smith, director of Clerks and Chasing Amy, being chased off an airplane because he is too fat is kind of hilarious. A Troma maxim of screenwriting is that fat + fart = funny, and I am certain that Kevin Smith, the fatty that he is, probably farted at the time he was the ejected = ha ha!”The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey (2012)
“For those of us who have already seen LOTR, this is a nice look back at those films, and for those completely new to the trilogy, The Hobbit is a an exciting film that stands as a worthwhile story its own right.”Pink Lady... and Jeff “Episode #4”
“This week’s guests are Florence Henderson, Lorne Greene, Boomer the Dog, another music video by Blondie, and Sid Caesar! Why yes, this was the episode where they just gave up. Why do you ask?”Oblivion (2013)
“And much like an amnesiac, you’ll embark on an adventure that’s all too familiar, and by the end you’ll have forgotten it all anyway.”
