People were always going to get up in arms over Darren Aronofsky‘s new film, Noah, which is a retelling of the classic Biblical tale. Of course, it’s a movie, so of course they take some liberties to make it suitable for the big screen and actually entertaining. Otherwise, everyone would be asleep. Of course, some religious nuts were protesting it before the film even came out, so it now has a disclaimer in the beginning to appease those who might complain:
Of course, if you go into a movie theatre to see a movie based on a book and get upset that it isn’t exactly like the story you see on paper, you probably need to reevaluate your life a bit. Harry Potter was different on screen than it was in the books, and while people bitched, they generally got over it and enjoyed it for what it was. And no, I don’t need the Christian sect in the comments telling me there’s a difference between The Bible and Harry Potter. Some of us don’t believe there is – deal with it.
The movie does look kind of great/blockbuster-y with some good special effects. Even I can say that and I’m not religious. However, if I did go see it (which I won’t), I sure as hell wouldn’t be expecting to see a literal interpretation.
I dunno, what do you guys think? Will you go see this? Even if you are religious or consider yourself a Christian, do you feel the uproar about this is warranted?
