Noah (2014)
« on: September 15, 2014, 09:37:18 pm »

I know that both Mac and Neumatic have a more positive outlook on Noah, but sorry guys, I think this was a bad movie for the obvious reasons. I love Biblical stories and want to see them get the Hollywood treatment with current gen Special FX which was the very thing I was excited for upon hearing this was being made. What I don't want to see is a Director that thinks that just because he has a Best Picture Oscar under his belt that he can suddenly mess with a story that has been told for thousands of years and dumb it down for the sole purpose of appealing to a certain demographic that doesn't know anything beyond Lord of the Rings and The Transformers. I was and still am utterly confused by what I just watched. I want THE story to be told with the respect it deserves.

As bad as the movie is, I still have to give both Russell Crowe and Jennifer Connelly props as it's their acting that makes it worth sitting through to the end in spite of a farce of a story. I will not ever recommend this to anyone. Ever. Just supremely disappointed in what this movie turned out to be. Since watching this, I did do a littler research to see what the masses thought of the film and even more shocking than the film is that most people really liked it. Well, to each their own I guess. Just not for me.

I wasn't nuts about it either, but I did make sure to get a lot of caps because... well, Emma Watson (and I did dig the production design).

I stand corrected. I just remember you saying "it wasn't bad, but it wasn't good either". That's how I came up with you being more "positive" about Noah in comparison to me.
