(Caveat – While I usually follow a no spoiler policy, in the opinion of the writer, the abstract, allegorical nature of this film requires hints to the themes the movie alludes to, else the viewing experience may be adversely impacted unless the viewer is ready to invest in the film twice.

At the outset would clarify that I am not much aware of Biblical episodes and have neither fell into the temptation of reading and verifying all facts and myths. So have no intention to compare and debate the actual source from any of its written material to the one that has been transformed on screen. What was more intriguing to me is does this tale hold its own in todays context or is it just another futile exercise by the big studios to pass on a popcorn watch with lavish production and spectacular effects. Fortunately for us Darren Aronofsky is a seasoned hand and he knows to enter unchartered territories of human mind which makes the movie a triumphant watch.
Noah (Russel Crowe) has dreams of an apocalyptic deluge and with motivational aid from his grandfather Methuselah (Anthony Hopkins in a very brief role); he takes upon the task to construct a huge Ark meant to shelter every living being with two of its own breed.Continue reading “Noah(2014) Movie Review: God Fella”
Without wasting further time, let me write about the most anticipated movies of the year 2014.
Kindly note that this list is purely compiled on the basis of my personal choices and preferences.
10. 22 Jump Street : Co-Written by the multi-talented actor/writer Jonah ”Superbad, MoneyBall” Hill he teams up once again with Channing ”G.I Joe”Tatum in 22 Jump Street. 22 Jump Street is a story of 2 undercover cops who are so good at being incapable that in the 1st film they had to let go of a criminal because they couldn’t read him his rights. The film which is directed by Phil Lord and Chris Miller (Cloudy With A Chance of Meatballs) is a sequel to the hilarious 21 Jump Street. This time they are going undercover in a local college, so expect some more funny one liners and insane gags.
9. A Million Ways to Die in the West : Written & directed by an absolute mental Seth”Family Guy, Ted” MacFarlene, this film promises to push the limits of comedy which range from gross to the most creative gags. See the fight scene between Mark Wahlberg and Ted in the movie Ted to know what am talking about. A Million Ways To Die In The West tells the story of a cowardly farmer who seeks the help of a gunslinger’s wife to win back the woman who left him. It sounds serious but trust me it’s going to be madness and knowing Seth’s work it maybe something out of the box.Continue reading “10 Most Anticipated Hollywood Movies Of 2014”
