Now, before you say anything, me disliking the film had nothing to do with religion or Christianity or anything like that. It is about the movie. Plain and simple. Now, on to my complaints.

The movie was incredibly BORING. It dragged on and on and on with very little positive character development.

My other complaint was where did Aronofsky get his source material. It sure wasn't from Genesis. Look, I know movies have to take "artistic license" with some things, but Aronofsky took this to a whole new level of absurd.

WTF was the golem things? I mean really? Where they supposed to be Nephilim? If so, they wouldn't have helped... they were pure evil. Were they the angels that guarded Eden? They never fell from heaven nor does it have anything else about them in scripture let alone them helping Noah. It seems like the rock monsters were created just for the movie. But... c'mon... it would be like Peter Jackson having space aliens in their UFOs helping Gandalf during the Battle of Helm's Deep.

All the glowing "magical" stones or ore that created fire. The incense that put things in a deep sleep. That's just plain stupid. Likewise, the magical growing of trees. Oh, and the random bad guy sneaking on to the ark. All of this was created for the movie.

Backpacks... closed shoes... tight fitting knit clothes with collars nonetheless. The clothing was a far cry from the time period.

Next, was the portrayal of Noah. He is portrayed as a raving, homicidal lunatic that wants everyone dead. This is completely different from the Noah in the Bible, and, if Noah was alive today, he could sue for slander.

The movie was just dumb... but mostly boring. I'm pissed that I wasted so much money on it for IMAX. But, I will say the visuals were incredible. They were beautiful and stunning.

So yeah... again, don't waste your money. Just wait for it on DVD or streaming.

no desire to ever, ever see this. I hope it bombs in the theater and they lose millions.

Tell me again, why are you a Christian KC?

This sounds no more proposterous than the half baked stories in the OT. Because there's more than the one flood story you know.

What a steaming pile of bollocks.

I hope they showed what Noah fed the carnivores, how he kept them all apart from each other, all whilst cleaning them out for the whole four months he was on the "ark"

Was there dinosaurs?

1) The animals came to him.
2) Animals did not eat or poop as they were put to "sleep" with a magical incense.
3) No fish were on the ark.
4) Apparently, they were on the ark for over 9 months in the movie (which is another obvious deviation from the source material).

Recently suffered loss of intelligence. Had little to begin with! I should not miss it.

Yes - that ... and after the flood, was Noah pretty much washed up? Was he accurately depicted as being found by his grown sons all debauched, naked and hungover? That's how it was in the book. I'd hate to miss out on that... unless that 600 years didn't wear very well. Wink

I think in the end, I just feel like I'm a secular person who has a skeptical eye toward any extraordinary claim, carefully examining any extraordinary evidence before jumping to conclusions. ~ Eric ~ My friend ... who figured it out.

Actually, yes.

And it made sense within the context of the story.

I just downloaded a copy. I'm only 5 minutes in and I'm already not impressed. Apparently everyone was white with British accents in ancient Palestine.
