    In a kind of stunning thing for a film that wasn't a box office success, Part II is filming right now and is scheduled for an October release.

    Can't wait for Francisco's Money speech, actually I like that even more than Galt's big speech. Also Galt's description of the downfall of the 20th century Motor Co, which perfectly describes why collectivism is so bad.
    So, pt. 1 was not great, but it was great that it was made, and even more so that pt. 2 is coming. I enjoyed watching it nevertheless, if only to see how certain elements of the book were translated to film.

    I will admint, Francisco's money speech is one of those moments for those that buy the philosophy is one of those things people who buy the philosophy will openly cheer if it's done well. It has a great rhythm to it and delivered right - and I've seen it done more then a few times - it works.
