Re: What movie did you watch last night?

I watched The Lone Survivor last night... It was a pretty messed up situation, but a very good movie.

Watched a classic " Se7en " with Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. Picked up a bunch of Blu-rays out of the discount bin at walmart.
One of my favorite blu rays (for a/v quality) and films

Over the last three nights I've watched the latest Bond films on blu ray. Sunday night = Casino Royale, Monday = Quantum Of Solace and Last night was Skyfall. All great action/adventure/Bond movies in my opinion with Skyfall being the most robust and fulfilling of the three as cinema/films/Bond movies go. All three were lots of fun and excellent A/V quality overall on Blu ray.

I went to the theaters to see "Guardians of the Galaxy" in 3D (not because I wanted to but the non 3D showing was sold out) This is a really fun movie with great characters, I highly recommend it but you can skip the 3D.

I watched Amazing Spiderman 2 last night on Sony digital Download. It got mixed reviews but was infinitely better than the first one imo. I hope they keep this format for the third installment.

My stuff: LG 60" 4K -Yamaha RX-A3040-Panasonic BD91- Klipsch Ref series front, top, and center. Fluance AVBP2 and Panasonic Titanium Titans bring up the surrounds and rear. Klipsch 12 inch ref subwoofer.

Re: What movie did you watch last night?

We watched Noah on Monday night. We weren't going to, but ended up doing it on a whim (and a free Redbox rental). It is often beautiful to watch, and the soundtrack is great. However, I was not happy with the film itself. It took a lot of liberties (artistic license), which I expected and which didn't bother me so much. It's Hollywood after all. What bothered me was how far astray they went in the portrayal of the character and understanding of Noah and his relationship with "the creator." I think it promulgates some very false and harmful ideas. I will stop there in order to not get involved in a religious discussion, which is probably not appropriate for this site, let alone this thread.

I would agree with your sentiments. I don't think it succeeds on any level: it's far too fast and loose with the Biblical narrative and it's not particularly entertaining.

*chuckle, about the only thing it has in common with the Biblical story is that there was some guy named Noah and a flood. other than that's it's about on Par with saying that the Lord of the Rings is a historical film based off King Arthur lol...I had to view it as a "fantasy" not in relation to the Biblical narrative and that's the only way I didn't find it offensive, because it was....well...no relation to the original story but a flood and a guy with the same name. Akin to making a story about Muhammed and his revelation, but making Muhammed travel through space and time and battle cyborgs along the way.

but on a technical viewpoint I understood WHERE he got his leanings from, since he's an atheistic Jew he borrowed very heavily from Mikrash storytelling as well as Jewish mythology (not to be confused with Jewish theology) and thus has a much different take on it.
