Glenn Beck Saw ‘Noah’ Over the Weekend, and He’s Calling It the ‘Babylonian Chainsaw Massacre’
The Blaze ^ | 3/24/2014 | Erica Ritz

Posted on 03/26/2014 11:38:49 PM PDT by GraceG

Glenn Beck was invited to see “Noah” by an executive vice president of Paramount Pictures over the weekend, who requested that the multimedia personality see the movie before taking a position on it with his audience.

“I felt like kind of a dirtball, basing my review on something that I hadn’t seen, on someone else’s review,” Beck said on radio Monday. “That’s what people do to me. They don’t listen or watch, then they review. It was wrong of me to do.”

Unfortunately — though Beck said everyone at Paramount was extremely gracious — he has only more words of warning for his audience after sitting through the entire epic.

“The review made it sound like this was a godless climate change movie,” Beck said. “I believe that it is not a godless climate change movie. It’s more take ‘Sinbad the Sailor’ meets ‘The Shining’ and ‘Friday the 13th,’ with a sprinkle of ‘Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome.’”

Beck said strongly: “If you are looking for a biblical movie, this is definitely not it … It’s not the story of Noah that I was hoping for. If you are going for that, you will be horribly disappointed.”

Among the specific scenes Beck took issue with, he referenced the “giant rock people” that sprung up to help Noah with his tasks.

The bit about the "Rock people" in his ranting about it was hilarious.

based on what Beck has said, is the Noah portrayed in the movie the Noah according to Mohammed?

I may be understanding texts wrong, but I think while the Christian and Jewish texts have God as the one disappointed in mankind, and so it was He who decided on the Flood, and decided to save a good Noah and his good wife, the koran texts have Noah as the one who went to God and asked God to destroy all the evil people - that it was Noah’s call for the Flood and God obliged him. And that Noah’s wife was not a good person.

I doubt I’ll be paying money to see rock people, in any case.

Paramount had the opportunity to cut a respectable portrayal, but it chose not to. I won’t be going out of my way to see the movie.

They sell insurance, Prudential, get a piece of the Rock, and all that.

ObamaCare would work out well, since all their customers are going to drown in the next few hours.

So for weeks and weeks he has been bashing this movie with no proof. He goes to see the movie finds out it was not what he has been bashing. It still was not a good movie, but he has been lying for weeks. Shameful!

Boycott all movies and let the chips fall where they may. Who really needs them anyway? There are millions of ways to entertain yourself and movies are (IMO) a HUGE waste of money. Do something constructive, go fishing, anything but waste your time watching garbage.

Gadzooks! Why can't we get back... to traditional films about fundamental religion like we had in past years!

One particularly comes... to mind:

Okay, Bendy, I can... make that happen--

Thanks Liz... I knew you could do it.

Yet, in politics, things... are the same.

Yeah, Bend, the Democrats... still consider me the Devil--

No, they don't really, Sarah. They are either scared of you and your ideas... or they want to sleep with you but they know they never, ever had a chance in Hell of doing so--

Who says all actress/models... are stupid?

Impy, Liz Hurley attended... the Marc Cain show during Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week Autumn/Winter 2014/15 at Brandenburg Gate on January 16, 2014 in Berlin, Germany.

And for a 48 year old hag... she looks pretty good... don't ya think?

I wonder if he can win the Triple Crown this year.

100% agree. I also said then and still believe DET would have won it all with a healthy Cabrera.

I don’t know, I’m not feeling it for the Hawks this year (both times we won it I felt it, all year, FWIW). Something has seemed off since the Olympic break. Of course they have been dealing with injuries.

The Bruins are on fire, I’d peg them as the favorite to go all the way.

As for Cabrera, god damn! Odds are in 5 years they’ll be regretting it, has any team ever not regretted a mega-deal like this?

Anyway you can buy an island for a lot less than 300 mil

http://www.privateislandsonline.com/

The bigger/nicer ones of course are much more expensive, they won’t even list the price for some of them. The most expensive they list is 160 mil for a whale shaped island east of Phucket, Thailand.

The clay people were in the Flash Gordon series, not Buck Rogers. You have the wrong Saturday matinee, methinks.

Gadzooks, Impy! Who-- Or what... is a Sussana Hoffs?

Googled her and she... was is an American vocalist, guitarist and actress. She is best known as a member of The Bangles.

Gadzooks! Who--- Or what... are The Bangles?

CHI: The Western Conference is stacked; that’s their biggest obstacle.

BOS: I’ll agree. Just hope they aren’t peaking too early.

Cabrera/MLB: 100% agree; these deals are albatrosses. The only one that I’d say came close to working out was Manny Ramirez, $160/8 years. Of course he took his “vitamins” and had a violent streak.

Islands: I’d be happy with a cabana on any of these islands.

She’s 55 and looks great for her age. A lot better some much younger women who are aging rapidly due to excessive drinking/smoking/drug use/tanning.

I’ve dubbed her the anti-Lindsay Lohan.

WB = I would like know her, biblically. In a completely respectful manner, of course.
