Unsolicited Career Advice: Brangelina's "Atlas Shrugged": 4.45
It was fun giving Unsolicited Career Advice, so I think I'll do it again for today.
Variety reports that America's Hottest Couple is interested in bringing Ayn Rand's novel Atlas Shrugged to the big screen.
It looks like someone in the Brangelina camp is wearing bad idea jeans. While I appreciate anything that might bring more notoriety to my online persona, I just can't support turning Rand's 1000+ page novel into a movie. Why?
Because it would be a friggin' boringass movie.
Mr. and Mrs. Smith was popular because Brangelina was shown having sex, shooting guns, and fighting. But what if Brad Pitt had been an architect instead of an assassin (yeah, he might like that- would you?)? And what if they spent 80% of the movie pontificating on boring, if releveant, philosophical issues?
Would you go see that in a theatre? I didn't think so.
Brad models his bad idea jeans in the Himalayan Times.
Sorry, Brangelina, but Atlas Shrugged is a bad idea. As craptastic as it is likely to be, at least Ocean's Thirteen is pretty much a guaranteed hit.
