Went to see Noah last night. Let me put it this way. There was a chap named Noah and he had three sons named Shem, Ham and Japteth. There was a flood. As for the animals trooping in two by two, in over two hours that part might have taken up three minutes of movie time. But at least the film showed how Noah was able to find the labour needed to build a boat big enough to carry two of every kind of animal in the world. I can only think a film like this is possible today because no one any longer actually knows the story. More evidence, as if it were needed, that our Judeo-Christian culture will not hold and something else will be arriving very soon.
I’ll just mention that even though I have given away no plot details, I was reluctant to mention the film since most people haven’t seen it yet. But since Andrew Bolt and Gerard Henderson had a quick discussion this morning, why shouldn’t I? For what it’s worth, the critics at Rottentomatoes gave it 76% and the audience 53%. This is information you should know.
