The Bib­li­cal tale of Noah, his life-sav­ing Ark and his re­la­tion­ship with God is brought to the bigscreen (and now your TV). Why it’s okay: Dar­ren Aronof­sky (2000’s Re­quiem For A Dream and 2010’s Black Swan) is di­rect­ing Os­car-win­ners Rus­sell Crowe (Noah), Sir An­thony Hop­kins (Methuse­lah) and Jen­nifer Con­nelly (as Noah’s wife Naameh), so it’s go­ing to be mind­blow­ing, right? Er… it’s a good movie, don’t get us wrong. But there’s a lot miss­ing – like Noah has drug-in­duced vi­sions rather than God giv­ing him the Ark di­men­sions, we don’t see the Ark be­ing built from scratch and since when did fallen an­gels build most of the Ark? You’ll be left want­ing.
