(Episode 124 of) Cinema Smackdown – Noah

Cinema Smackdown
By Bret Dorman and Kate Peterson

This week, Kate and Bret gloss over religion to discuss the new Darren Aronofsky film Noah! We tackle everything from realism to CGI to adaptations to fight scenes to eco-terrorism to depression to existentialism and philosophy. What has everyone so upset and is it worth all the hubbub? We discuss the personal interpretations and how Aronofsky’s sermon on on mankind is a bit more religious than non-religious people might expect, but also how the art of entertaining storytelling is sure to offend certain religious groups. Thanks for listening!

Here in The Ten Commandments Moses takes on a ruler of men with some divine help. Take a look:



Next Episode will most likely be Captain America: The Winter Soldier!
