Atlas Shrugged II: The Strike
Billionaire businessman-turned-movie-producer John Aglialoro obviously doesn't believe in a free market economy. His attempt to turn Ayn Rand's objectivist bible Atlas Shrugged
(a third of it, anyway) into a movie bombed, losing $2 million of its meager $6.5 million budget at the box office. The marketplace has spoken, John. You lost. Undeterred, however, Aglialoro dumps even more of his dough into this sequel. Samantha Mathis (Super Mario Bros.
) takes over from Taylor Schilling as railroad baroness Dagny Taggart, who's trying to figure out why all of America's scientists and industrialists are disappearing. (Hint: The 47 percent of you out there who are welfare-sucking parasites won't let them be excellent.) 112 minutes
