Aronofsky’s “Noah” Trailer Floods the Web

I’m willing to give Darren Aronofsky the benefit of the doubt as it seems all he does is stuff that is awesome. But I’m not totally sold on this bit of awesome (using the word in its truest definition). More than excited or interested, I’m mostly just curious to see how (and if) he pulls it off. In short, the movie already has my money, now I just hope it’s worth it.

Ladies and gentlemen, the end of the world (the first time)…

This just looks…….UNINTERESTING.

This looks so ridiculous, but if I remember correctly, making this film has been a dream of Aronofsky’s since he was a teenager. I’m all right with some good old-fashioned mythological fun, if done well. The trailer looks so silly… but I’ll remain optimistic.

Is the Bible the next hot property in cinema?
Moses stinger at the end. Mary and Joseph in phase II.

My money is on Disney buying the rights to the Bible and doing a wonderful job incorporating John the Baptist in the next installment of ‘The Avengers’.

So I have no idea how to even talk about or discuss this movie, except that the 10 minutes of Timelapse stuff like 2/3rds in is EXCELLENT.

What a strange strange movie.

Andrew ought to have our episode talking about the craziness/banality of NOAH when his hangover subsides long enough to get it up on the site.

Noah’s weirdness makes it great, but its far-too-oft banality diminishes it far too damn much.

Crowe is great, iconic and compelling.

EVERYONE else (especially Hopkins and Noah’s sons) is dreadful and tedious (That makes not one, but two almost-chemistry-free Crowe-Connolly movie-relationships).

I liked all his Apocalypse stuff, the photography, the iconography, I liked the ICELAND as scorched earth (the third scorched ‘eden’ after Prometheus and Oblivion).

I’ll take The Fountain over this any day, or David Lynch’s nuttier DUNE. Something about filtering Aronofsky’s passion project through the sieve of Lord of the Rings style blockbuster filmmaking kinda pissed me off. A fucking fist fight? Seriously? Shit like that makes me see the glass 1/2 empty when I should see the glass 2/3rd full.
