Yikes. sounds like a winner… no!
I love blogs by Mike Walsh.
I don’t get out to see movies much. So, I like to read about them before I go.
I also wonder about Biblical movies. I know Hollywood does their thing. You can’t expect them to do justice to a biblical story. It will likely be an artistic take on a loosely biblical tale. Not necessarily a bad thing in my book. I don’t expect Hollywood to be exegetical and historically correct. For Noah especially, there is room for directorial embellishments. So, I’m not surprised by what’s in the review.
All in all, the review by Mike Walsh is hilarious. Not sure this movie is very high on my list. Maybe a rental and not even sit through the whole thing… Enjoy the MW review.
On Friday, my wife and I had a very rare date night.
Naturally, we decided to spend it being pummeled by the blaring condescension of the most insipid, absurd, unimaginative, clumsily contrived piece of anti-Christian filmmaking to come along since, well, probably just last week.
In fact, if I learned anything from Noah, it’s this: despite popular perception, you can often judge a book by its cover. Also, giant deformed rock monsters make for awkward supporting characters.
We’ll meditate on that second item in a moment, but it’s the first point that should be especially emphasized.
Christians: you’ll hear people insist that you can’t criticize the movie until you’ve seen it. Noticeably, the loudest voices in this camp are the ones who will (rather coincidentally, I’m sure) profit immensely if you meet their challenge.
You can hate this film without watching it, for the same reason…
