John Wright Watched Noah So You Don’t Have To
Science fiction writer John C. Wright has an epic, and scathing, review of the film Noah at his blog:
On that basis, I can warn away anyone who likes a well-crafted story, or even a poorly-crafted story trying to tell a story. The story-telling sank during the second half of the film, and the plot snarled into a knot of nonsense. It was bad.
On that basis, I can warn away anyone who is Christian as a well as any non-Christians who do not bow the knee in pious reverence at the ugly Leftist altars of man-hating Gaea-worship. Vegetarians yearning for the destruction of mankind might like this movie; and also vehement anti-Christians and anti-Semites who want to see Bible stories mocked and deconstructed. The movie was a sneer against God and Man and everything good in life. I rarely find movies morally offensive; this movie was. It was evil.
Go here to read the rest. The usual warning about spoilers, if this dog’s breakfast of an atheist-New Age-ecofreak take on Noah can be spoiled, is in effect.
