Noah the film


It's Movie Time!
One of my favourite times..

Last night I went and saw 'Noah'.  The story is about a 'man chosen by God to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world'.

If you don't know the story of Noahs Arc then the short version is that God was angry at men and all the destruction they had caused, he decided to cleanse the world in a great flood and chose one man and his family to help take care of his plans.  Noah, a descendant of faithful men lived a life dedicated to God the Creator and understood what he had to do to maintain faith and with the help of his family he created the arc.  

The movie was filmed beautifully and the visual effects were pretty stunning.  The movie told the original story respectfully but definitely added in a few bits in the story for entertainment purposes ( i gather).  There was action, love and a few witty moments and the acting was pretty amazing (in my opinion).  In the theater the audience was quite different people who new the story and people who didn't.  I don't think you need to believe in the story to enjoy it or take something away from it.  The over arching (pardon the pun) theme of the story was love conquers all and to not give up faith, an idea that we can all relate to in our own ways (religious or not). Whether you know the story or not, the movie is def worth a look.

What are some of the recent movies you have watched?  I would love to know.  I'm looking forward to "The other Woman".
