Noah Movie Review and Giveaway!

Contest was on the facebook discussion about the movie Noah.  Winner is CHERYL!!! :D  Thanks for coming to read my review everyone!

Wow!  I'm not sure if I know of any other movie besides Noah that has caused such a stir.  I grew up in church and so I've heard the story hundreds of times.  I have it memorized so I was soooo curious to actually see this come out.  I guess more than anything I really wanted to see the visual of what it would look like for the fountains of the deep to burst through the ground and the rain to fall.  To see the earth being flooded. How tragic and horrifying it must have been!  Can you imagine the terror? Sure, our earth now is groaning under the weight of sin and it experiences devastation all the time.  This was the WHOLE earth being flooded.  Even though I knew they took SERIOUS artistic license on this story, I still wanted to see it as it's one of the most well known stories of the bible.  A facebook friend warned me to only view this as a fiction film.  I took that in mind before seeing it.

Whoa, okay, so it was serious artistic license.  But STILL, the visual was amazing.  I'd say it was one-third biblical and two-thirds fantasy.  There are many things that didn't line up to scripture such as the character of Noah, or even the animals on the boat.  There were way too many varieties on that boat of one type of animal.  You don't need a Chihuahua, Labrador, and a Poodle.  Just a male and female of each type of animal. Dogs, cats, birds, elephants, etc. Also, the talking rock formations reminded me of the caveman version of the Transformers.  Haha.  But seriously, I really don't want to go on about the details because there are still many that haven't see it.  If you haven't seen it, it's available for rent now or even to buy. 

My friend Brandy said, " I watched some of it and read that the producer took several different resources to add to the movie. I actually liked the creativity of it regardless of him adding more to the biblical account."

If anything, watch it to see what all the fuss is about!
