Atlas Shrugged: Ayn Rand

AtlasShrugged

Atlas Shrugged
Writen by Ayn Rand
Narrated by Scott Brick

In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts?

In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike. Is he a destroyer or a liberator? And why does he fight his hardest battle not against his enemies but against the woman he loves?

Tremendous in scope and breathtaking in its suspense, Atlas Shrugged is Ayn Rand’s magnum opus, an electrifying moral defense of capitalism and free enterprise which launched an ideological movement and gained millions of loyal fans around the world.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story

rogue-one

Friday Rogue One was released. This story is essentially Episode 3.9 in the StarWars franchise. My awesome boss once again rented a theater for the entire company and we got to see the movie on opening day for free! Yes I have the best boss in the entire world. I don’t say this because I think he will read my blog, as I doubt he will ever see this post. I say it because I do have a great boss.

I thoroughly enjoyed Rogue One, and although I am not of the opinion that it is one of the best Star Wars movies, it does rate above the prequels. My favorites are still The Empire Strikes back and Force Awakens. I definitely rank this a Must See movie at 4.5 star rating.

four and a half stars

Yes,  if you continue reading this post will contain spoilers. If you haven’t seen Rogue One, I highly suggest you not read this post further. Additionally, I highly recommend reading Catalyst (or listening on Audible) before seeing the movie as it is episode 3.5/3.7ish in the time line and explains much of what is missing in the movie, and gives you a better insight into some of the choices made by characters such as Galen Erso, Orson Krennic and Jyn Erso. It also gives you a good look at Orson Krennic our bad guy for Rogue One.

The Choice

The Choice 2016 English Movie

The Choice

I recently went to see The Choice. Going into the movie I knew nothing about what it was, other than it was really the only movie that looked halfway appealing to see while hubby went to see Deadpool since I had no desire to see it. Pride & Prejudice & Zombies wasn’t showing, and anything else I wanted to see had either started or wasn’t showing until 7:00.

So here is what I learned about this movie… and yes there are quite a few spoilers. If you don’t want spoilers about the story stop reading here. Otherwise you’ve been warned, and you can’t hold me responsible for anything you find out that you didn’t want to know.

The Avengers: Age of Ultron

AvengersBelieve it or not, before about 2 months ago I had seen very few of the Marvel movies. I had seen a few of the X-Men movies, Guardians of the Galaxy, Big Hero 6. My boss at work told us he was taking us to Avengers: Age of Ultron so I had a Marvel Marathon. I will be posting reviews of each movie separately later.

Cinderella

Cinderella

Live Action Cinderella. I wonder how many people (myself included) cringed when this was first announced? How was Disney ever to live up to the original with Mice that talk not to mention are transformed into Horses, Geese that become Coach Drives and Dogs for Coach Men. Not to mention Glass Slippers.
