Rated M
Starring Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson
Directed by Darren Aronofsky

It’s pretty amazing that a movie like Noah even exists. A big budget retelling of a Bible story with big name actors and a special effects budget that would make a film student drool, directed by a guy best known for his quirky, arty films. Surely this is going to be a disaster. The Bible crowd will either love it or hate it and it’s going to be a tough sell to get anyone else even interested.

As an epic fantasy movie with Biblical allusions, Noah is a great film. As a Biblically faithful account of the life of Noah… Well it makes a good fantasy movie.

Coming Soon: Noah

Noah-PosterWhen I first heard that there was a movie being made about Noah ( the guy with the big boat in Genesis) my thoughts were some what apathetic and dismissive. My past experiences with the Bible being adapted for either the big or small screen have left me unsatisfied. They seem to fall into one of two camps: really faithful but dull or thought-provoking and engaging but theologically suspect. Sure, that’s my opinion – there are some adaptations that are well loved but do nothing for me. I’m a visual guy and would love to be able to see God’s word on the screen – but it has to be worth the effort.

Then the trailer for Noah came out last week. And i moved from apathy to cautious optimism. Could this movie be worth seeing?

Legion (2010)

Rated MA

A movie about a group of ordinary people holed up in a diner, surrounded by desert, using machine guns to fight off angels. This should be an awesome movie. Right? Right? Well it isn’t. Thankyou Legion for taking a good concept and turning it into a very, very bad movie.
