The Noah film is afloat with extremism
Herald Sun ^ | Monday, March 31, 2014 | Andrew Bolt

Posted on 03/31/2014 6:54:51 AM PDT by Star Traveler

AMAZING. Hollywood just killed God, and almost no critic noticed how it quietly slipped a green human-hater in his place.

I never thought you could make a two-hour film about Noah and his ark without mentioning “God” even once, but director Darren Aronofsky has managed it in his $142 million epic, which opened last week.

His Noah, played by a muttering Russell Crowe, prays to a different deity, a much nastier one called “the creator” who seems to brood on global warming.

Hey, what a coincidence! So does Aronofsky, who last year declared, “climate change as an enemy of the people”. So does Crowe, tweeting in most unbiblical language: “F--- denial of climate change.”

And in their film, Noah, they give us their creator, a vegetarian who really does want to “f--- denial of climate change” and put filthy humans in their place so, as Crowe’s Noah rasps, “creation will be left alone — safe. Beautiful”.

As an agnostic, I should barely care which invisible being Crowe talks to, but this switcheroo is freaky.

It's not about the Noah of the Bible - it's about GLOBAL WARMING, it's about saving the animals and killing the humans, it's about being a vegetarian, it's about wizardry, it's about 'rock people' -- it's just plain nuts!

Yet, people flock to it. The moronic general poupulation of this nation is not going to “wake up” until forced to by reality. Until then, they are just going to continue to lap up the lies fed to them by Hollywood and their iPhones (trans: Democrats).

Last year , the repubs should have forced the economy over the “cliff” and allowed to happen what was going to happen. We are going over one way or another. Seems like, that being a fact, it makes sense to go over while you have some strength left. This slow crawl to the edge just plays into the left’s hands.

Here's some excerpts from a (funny) review by Barbara Nicolosi: "Noah – The Emperor’s New Movie." Here's the start:
"Let me just start by saying two words which you can accept as fair warning to avoid this stupidest movie in years: Rock People.

"Need more?

Nicolosi then goes on to rip apart the film, Hollywood, the media, liberal Christians who defend the movie, and...

"Oh yeah. And ROCK PEOPLE."

And Nicolosi's review eventually gets down to details:

"Here is a short list of some of the stupid story problems in Noah: (Is it possible to spoil a rotten thing? Well, be warned anyway)... "

And after discussing that list of problems, Nicolosi goes back to ripping up the movie some more:

"Oh yeah, and there is a ton of annoying, superior liberal preaching about how we should all be vegetarians, and that technology and cities are innately bad because they hurt the planet. Dumb, oversimplified liberal utopia nonsense."

Later, near the end of her review, Nicolosi notes:

"Galaxy Quest called. They want their rock people back."
Nicolosi is referring, of course, to the more entertaining movie, "Galaxy Quest," and its rock people.

Hollywood sees how well Christian movies are accepted by the populace.
They would not dare make a Christian movie and praise God... so the solution is to make a movie portraying a story from the Bible. That will get people in the door. Now they have the canvas to spread their anti-God liberal crap under the veil of a “Christian” theme.

I have read almost every thread on the 'noah' film, and have yet to see any Freeper supporting it or recommending anyone else see it. Sure, there may have been a few 'uninformed' the first few days, but that got over quickly as word spread.

Remember that Kevin Sorbo starred in a satire based on the movie ‘300’.

Now, the star of the movie ‘300’ stars in a satire film about Noah.

Funny how things end up.

I’ve read them ... I can just about remember one in particular now, who thought it was good. Another one engaged in a very very long discourse with me over it. And then a third one complained very loudly that I would DARE tell him what movie to watch - even though I never wrote anything to him in the first place. And then, this guy here is the fourth one that I can think of.

Global warming caused the Noah era flood?

Wasnt that just a few years before the industrial revolution?

Because the studio did everything they could in hiding the true intent of the movie, plus advertising that it was faithful to the Bible — and as a result SNOOKERED all those people before they could be warned that it is actually garbage.

This is a quote from one of the articles up above ...


The producers tried to keep these details secret from the faith-based public in order to not have a backlash from negative reviews that would affect the all important opening weekend box office. I learned about some of these details last year from a French graphic novel (which I was shown in Germany) upon which the film’s script was based.

As far as I know this was not translated or released to the English-speaking market, presumably to prevent these fictional elements from getting out to the faith-based American audience. Now, the secret is out and it is hoped that informed audiences will, like Noah in the film, judge this parody of the biblical account, unworthy of cinematic salvation.

They have fashioned themselves a false and lying Green god.

This is a mockery of God's Word. Feeding bile to a Biblically illiterate entertainment/thrill seeking generation eerily similar to the generation of Noah's day. (Genesis 6)

Crash and burn. Or trash and burn.

Hype will only carry any concept just so far. After that, genuine stinkers have to be carried out and buried.

Should have gone straight to video release. That way, maybe less immediate negative publicity.

But hey, they had one helluva first weekend.

“The Ten Commandments” it ain’t.
