    Some in the religious community take this movie as a declaration from Satan that he's coming to f-up Christians the way God did to the Nephilim during that the days of Noah. At the bottom of the movie poster, it says something like "the end is near." And, they were filming in the New York area, and filming had to be delayed because of Hurricane Sandy. Get it? The making of the movie Noah was delayed because of a flood. The third thign was that at some point in time during filming Russell Crowe either fell out of a raft and nearly drowned or he got lost at sea or soemthing. I'm fuzzy on the details about that. But it's interesting (at least I thought so).

    The most satanic thing about this movie is that both Russell Crowe and Hermione sang in it...and Hermione's singing was even worse...and only Satan can make that possible.

    And what was with that song during the credits? Sounded like a drunque fiftysomething transsexual singing karaoke.

    The fx were very good, though (loved the rockbiter animations, the creation story sequence was really cool, and water sims have reached a new level of realism), and they saved an otherwise pretty boring movie. Russell Crowe can make anything boring.

    Noah, the movie, is realist art. It creates the illusion of reality.

    But we know from a number of sciences that Noah's Ark never existed.

    So the movie failed to suspend my disbelief. And so failed as a work of art.

    WTF?

    The stories in Genesis are...implausible to say the least, but it doesn't mean we can't take anything meaningful out of it.

    I guess I didn't care what happened to Russell Crowe. I hate Les Mis. Horrible. I don't how much to hold him responsible for it, but I was traumatized within the first 10 minutes of the movie and I didn't want to be traumatized. I rented it because Anne Hathaway starved herself for it and wanted to watch someone starving to death and that's what I thoought the movie was about. Maybe that is traumatic. Anyways...

    I know that this Noah movie sucked, and I agree with OP that Crowe should've been on the boat in the movie poster. I thoguht the same thing when I saw it. Maybe the movie's better if he isn't on the boat. That's a nice little twist no one saw coming. Noah drowns.

    Sorry that people were disappointed. I enjoyed it, although it's not my favorite Aranofsky movie. I also could see why he made particular changes to the story, in order to bring out certain parts of Noah's character and personality.

    Prophets are always severe, usually in personality and in their perceptions, and for a man to persevere in such a large undertaking while watching humanity die also would suggest he was persistent and unyielding; he had to be. Aranofsky tried to take that to its logical conclusion, resulting in a potentially horrific resolution; it made sense to me and treated the character realistically.

    But the nephilim story was changed to suggest a God of judgment and one of mercy as well -- these rebellious angels were damned for coming to earth, but they also were finally released from that captivity. Their plight reflected an aspect of God that Noah in term had to emulate (though he didn't realize it), and so he struggled with the mercy aspect.

    Yeah, I almost started to laugh when Crowe began singing ("NO, please, just... NO!") but at least it was an appropriate venue for him... he wasn't supposed to be able to actually sing, and all of humanity was about to die soon anyway, so... And the song tied in later, it was important to the plot. I gotta say, he brought a lot of weight to the role; he grounded Noah, ironically enough, and provided him substance equal to any stone giant.

    It started raining when I walked into the movie theater, but hey, I'm still alive.

    Jason Statham almost drowned filming Expendables 3, but that don't make him a prophet.

    Is there a name for that stylized screaming eagle cry (like of like the Wilhelm scream of the animal world) that shows up whenever birds fly by?
    It might indeed just be a modified Wilhelm scream, like they did in Transformers.
    There's pretty much a Wilhelm sound effect for everything. Police background radio chatter (on The Following they kept doing the same one over and over thinking I wouldn't notice, also exact same one on the Sublime song, April 26, 1992), Baby crying, a VERY common Wilhelm meow, and on and on.
