Noah


This story seems familiar to me.    :) 


Starring Russell Crowe,   Emma Watson,  Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins


Directed by Darren Aronofsky     , seems like a change of pace for him.

    Based on the book of King James' Bible about the story of Noah and his ark with a all star cast that includes Oscar winning actors Russell Crowe and Anthony Hopkins and Oscar winning actress Jennifer Connelly.

      Actually the director announced that it is the least biblical film ever made, a point that he is quite proud of. Reviewer said it was not only a pagan movie that zero to do with the biblical story, but that it alternated between revolting, disgusting, and boring. :/

      Well, at least he wasn't trying to do the remake of George Stevens' The Greatest Story Ever Told. Darren Aronofsky is no by any means a William Wyler or a Cecil B. DeMille,but I do give him credit for such a fantastic film.

    Oh, also, there's this line a bit later: "But I will establish my covenant with you, and you will enter the ark—you and your sons and your wife and your sons’ wives with you." I don't think we ever learn the names of the wives, but they're all already married when this happens.

    And I still think Noah comes across as a dangerous religious fanatic. Really, though, it's hard to tell any kind of Noah story without running into some serious ethical problems.

    So there is this weird passage at the beginning of the flood story in the actual Bible (I'm pasting this in from "Bible Gateway", so sorry about the verse numbers):

    "When human beings began to increase in number on the earth and daughters were born to them, 2 the sons of God saw that the daughters of humans were beautiful, and they married any of them they chose. 3 Then the Lord said, “My Spirit will not contend with[a] humans forever, for they are mortal[b]; their days will be a hundred and twenty years.”

    4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them. They were the heroes of old, men of renown."

    Anyway, those rock guys seem really different, but at least there is some sort of fallen-angel-like idea that Aronofsky could point to.

    It had great scenery and the story was pretty typical for a big budget movie. Did not expect an accurate version of bible story

    I was thinking I liked the movie more than everyone else, but I think my opinion was biased because it was good to see some people I hadn't seen in a while. Also my expectations were closer to what the movie actually was.

    The Meetup was good as always, regarding the movie, the burrito I had at dinner was better. I think there were 7 of us, ten lucky people missed it.

    The weather changed my plans so I'll be a last-minute addition.

    Can't make it after all. Sinus cold and allergies not improved enough yet to venture out in tonight's cold and damp weather. Maybe instead, I'll just (re)read the original story so I'll have a fresh point-of-reference for inevitable the post-movie online discussion!

    Last minute change of plans... see you another time!

    Actual Noah? Really?

    March 30, 2014

  • :D

    Reviews say is a pagan movie that has zero correlation with the actual Noah; which matches what the director announced " it is the most unbiblical movie ever made" . He should be about as surprised that people are upset as that cartoonist that insulted the Muslims; at least Christians aren't calling for his literal beheading? ;p

    The Pope gave this a thumbs up

      But did he say that it was better than the book?

    the FLOOD-NOAH is not just in Hebrew mythology, the flood is in the mythology of cultures near seacoasts worldwide. And, it is not a myth. 40 days of rain day and night might be a stretch, but about 12,000 years ago the Younger Dryas cold spell of the last glacial age came to an abrupt end. In maybe 10 years global temps rose 15C or 27F and sea levels rose 250'+ in a short time. In addition, the dam separating the Black Sea from the Med. broke and a 200'+ wave poured into the Black.

    "Noah" is the first of three biblical epics that will hit theatres in 2014...the other two are "The Son Of God",and "The Gospel".

    February 10, 2014

  • Raymond C.

    This is a change of pace for Darren Aronofsky...a director that is known for producing Oscar winning hard hitting dramas than biblical epics. This is coming from the director of "The Wrestler" and the Oscar winning "Black Swan". Scheduled for general release the Easter weekend.
