I am sure Hollywood will ruin these stories. I am looking forward to “the Boy Who Came Back From Heaven”. Good book.

If there is a poll, why not post the link here instead of redirecting to a blog first?

I voted. People better go see these films or don’t ever complain about not having conservative movies not be available ever again.

“Noah” yes; “Son of God” no.

“Son of God” is being produced by the same people who did “The Bible” which featured Asian Ninja Angels kicking Sodomite butt all over Sodom and it also featured numerous Jewish characters being portrayed by a racial mix of people when that simply wasn’t the case in real life. I also didn’t like the liberties they took with no end of Scripture.

They won’t see my money and I won’t see their movie.

You can also vote on the Faith Driven Consumers poll , but they require a lot of information from you in order for yuor vote to count/show . I don’t like that .... so I created a simple alternate .

We will definitely go to see Son of God because we are familiar with the work of its producers, Roma Downey and her husband.

They produced the TV miniseries The Bible and did a pretty good job of sticking to the script.

With Noah, I will wait to hear what is said about it. What I've heard so far is that Noah believes the flood is a result of overpopulation and global warming. We'll see.

Plus, in the trailers I've seen on TV, he appears to be wearing pants.

Obviously I wasn't around at the time of the flood but I'm fairly certain men didn't wear pants back then.

If the producers and director can't even get that little factoid right, I don't hold out much hope they get the rest of it right.

But I could be wrong. We'll see.

I can understand saying that about the Son of God movie but I’m hearing the Noah movie is not accurate biblically.

I’ll watch it and view it for what it is. ...just a movie. I like his acting, but like so many other movies out there you know there will be overtones of the liberal slant..it’s Hollywood after all...should we expect any less than they are?

I think we put too much importance on ‘movies’....if someone wants historical facts then do documentaries and such, and even those will be slanted. Movies are “entertainment” after all.

“Noah” looks like it will bring new definition to “disaster flick.” Pass.

“Son of God” was already shown as “the Bible” on cable TV. Still, with new scenes added, it promises to be worth seeing on DVD.

“The Passion” was great. So was “The Nativity Story”. It can be done. “The Bible” series was very good too, especially the Obama part.

I noticed today on the “Son of God” site that they filmed commentary by that fake minister and commie Jim Wallis. I was gobsmacked.

You could be right and I may be too critical of my fellow FRiends. I have not decided to see Noah yet, but it does not have to do with whether it is liberal slanted or anything like that. I can’t stand Russell Crowe. I was trilled to see him get killed in the movie Les Misérables.

"People better go see these films or don’t ever complain about not having conservative movies not be available ever again."

I don't think "Noah" can be called a conservative movie; seems it left out the Bible and has billed Noah as "the first environmentalist."

Noah

Now if they've made changes in response to the criticism and removed the leftwing propaganda, I might change my mind.

I can’t wait for Roma Downey and her team of poseurs to trot out the usual bunch of secular Jewish professors from Colmbia and NYU to speak on the ‘authenticity’ of her portrayal of Jesus in the film. I’ve noticed that the same people she taps to shill her work are the same people who go on History Channel and etc. to denounce the divinity of Christ Jesus.

Matthew 7:15

So, why "yes" for Noah?

That story is every bit as perverted as the Bible series (from the several (p)reviews I read.)

Some cultures wore pants. It tended to depend on local climate. Did the ancient Jews wear pants: no. Did the ancient Celts wear pants: yes, because Northern Europe is effing cold!

I didn't like the film “The Bible” either because they skipped the whole reason why Sodom and Gomorrah was destroyed because of PC. Secondly, they portrayed Abraham as kind of loony to me where he was praying to God which seemed like he was talking to himself like a nut. I didn't really like it much.

I would suggest getting a DVD from Sight and Sound theater if you want a good Noah movie.

Well, I don’t know about you, but I’ve seen old Jewish guys without pants and I think a little creative license in this case might be a good thing.

“Noah” = No!

Check out the reviews. This is NOT a conservative movie. It has fallen angels helping Noah and Noah pledged to kill his family after the flood so that the animals can have the earth.

Blasphemy!

This has nothing to do with Leo's fortune, or even mine.

Or even envy, as I imagine Leo on a much stained library computer.

Leo is obviously looking for blog hits first.

Later, maybe leftovers from the dumpster.
Leo has given us two partial sentences as blog-hit bait.

Homeboy isn't even willing to work for BLOG HITS.

He's a putz.

Someone posted here with this the last several days that they had taken out the “Obama” guy.

Even before I saw that, I decided that I would not see the movie. Was not happy with the liberties that they took with the “Bible” series.

So, why "yes" for Noah?

I'd pay to watch Russell Crowe knit an afghan for two hours and be just as happy. No doubt I'll nitpick the movie but Russell stole my heart with 'Gladiator' and I've been a fan ever since.
