I think it will be an entertaining movie, but I do not expect it to be any kind of Biblically accurate account of the Flood story.

A guy who writes for my site who also had a theology masters did a review of the film and defended it as being in the Biblical spirit (if not the letter). He's a pretty liberal theologian, though, and he's virulently opposed to any form of fundamentalism. I still don't know if I'll end up seeing it or not.

I hope they left in the part where Noah gets drunk, his son sees him naked, and he curses his grandson to be a slave.

Seriously, that's the strangest story in the Bible.

Not as strange as the one where Lot is in Sodom being visited by two angels in his house, and a gay mob surrounds his house demanding that Lot send out the two angels so that the gay mob can rape them, and Lot basically replies with "No, not the angels! Rape my two daughters instead!"

Eh, I guess you could say what goes around comes around, as the two daughters rape Lot at the end of the story.

Noah looks awesome. It is NOT a "bible movie". It has nothing to do with the bible. Aronofsky has said as much. The story is from the Gnostic Gospels which is a whole 'nother kettle of fish.

I think he probably means the Book of Enoch.

Right . . . that would be from the Hebrew Apocrypha rather than the Gnostic writings.  makes sense.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.
