Noah Blu-ray Review

30 July 2014 6:00 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

The sign of a good religious picture is the controversy surrounding it.  Whenever a movie asks you to seriously grapple with theological issues, it’s bound to rile those who like their religion safe and comforting.  Noah certainly prompted its share of screeching op-ed pieces, along with the smug indifference of the secular crowd.  In truth, director Darren Aronofsky has punk’d them all: creating a serious, thoughtful and unbearably intense study of our relationship to God in the context of a giant Hollywood blockbuster.  Hit the jump for my full Noah Blu-ray review. Indeed, if the heavier theological musings don’t work for you, then Noah flies on sheer spectacle alone. Aronosfky knows how deploy cinema as a tool of shock and awe, and he pulls no punches here in a reimagined version of the Biblical flood.  Right away, he eschews the coddling Hallmark Channel  model of Biblical tales, »

Noah Blu-Ray Review

29 July 2014 9:20 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With Darren Aronofsky at the helm, Noah was always going to be a Biblically ambitious sight to behold, and a vividly strange one at that. Creative liberties are one thing, but did anyone expect the man behind Requiem For A Dream and The Fountain to adhere strictly to the Bible’s cut and dry storytelling? Aronofsky’s retelling of “Noah’s Ark” blends elements of Lord Of The Rings with God’s bleaker trials and tribulations, getting a wee bit darker than I remember Noah’s adventure, but stunning camerawork and artistic attention make use of massive color palates much like Andy Warhol might – but a Catholic school special, this is not. Either I zoned out when my Catholicism teacher detailed how gargantuan rock monsters helped Noah fight off an invading army of dissidents, or Aronofsky decided that religion needed a jolt of Hollywood magic.

This Week In Home Entertainment: Noah, Twin Peaks And More

29 July 2014 7:40 PM, PDT | cinemablend.com | See recent Cinema Blend news »

Noah Blu-ray Darren Aronofsky has proven throughout his career that he is capable of stunning visuals and unique storytelling. The director needed both when pursuing the massive movie project, Noah, a story about a biblical flood and thousand of creatures sheltered by one family during the darkest of times. Aronofsky mostly pulls it off, telling a compelling biblical tale with ties to nature, and even monsters of a sort. Noah isn.t the family-friendly story people only familiar with the title might expect. Early on, we are introduced to a young Noah, who witnesses the death of his father at the hands of a sinning man named Tubal-Cain (Ray Winstone). As a grown-up, Noah (Russell Crowe) strives to live by the more earthly tenets his father taught them, tenets he then teaches his own wife (Jennifer Connelly) and sons (Logan Lerman, Douglass Booth and Leo McHugh Carroll). He begins to »

New on DVD/Blu-ray: The Spectacular 'Noah,' the Surprisingly Sweet 'The Other Woman' and More

29 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Noah - Paramount Pictures - Blu-ray 3D, Blu-ray Combo Pack, and DVD Director: Darren Aronofsky Cast: Russell CroweJennifer ConnellyRay Winstone,Anthony HopkinsEmma Watson. Full cast + crew Noah is a stunning piece of filmmaking. Of course, that's to be expected when it comes to a movie about the construction of a giant ark intended to survive an apocalyptic flood, but Darren Aronofsky pushes his movie far beyond your standard biblical epic and turns it into a transcendent, engrossing spectacle. Seriously, there are just some downright gob-smacking visuals in this movie, with many of them coming before the big flood even happens. But Noah is also a complex morality tale about the very nature of mankind and the way we often blind...

New DVD Blu-ray: 'Noah,' 'The Other Woman,' 'Twin Peaks'

29 July 2014 12:00 PM, PDT | Moviefone | See recent Moviefone news »

Moviefone's Top Blu-ray of the Week

"Twin Peaks: The Entire Mystery"

What's It About? David Lynch's two season TV series had viewers riveted to figure out who killed the beaming blonde homecoming queen Laura Palmer. And maybe, just maybe, some of us fell a little in love with Special Agent Dale Cooper (Kyle MacLachlan), the curious FBI agent sent to investigate Laura's murder while enjoying many damn fine cups of coffee.

Why We're In: This ten-disc set comes with both seasons of "Twin Peaks," as well as the movie "Fire Walk With Me," plenty of featurettes, and deleted scenes (!!!!) from the beloved TV series. Not that we'll ever really know what happened in the strange little town of Twin Peaks, Wa.

Writer Ari Handel Tells Us What Movie Was Harder to Get Made, 'Noah' or 'The Fountain'

28 July 2014 7:00 PM, PDT | Movies.com | See recent Movies.com news »

Ari Handel was studying to become a neuroscientist when he met a young man named Darren Aronofsky at college. Fast-forward a decade or so, and now Handel is Aronofsky's most frequent collaborator, having coproduced The Wrestler and Black Swan, as well as having cowritten The Fountain. Their latest film together is Noah, starring Russell Crowe as a man tasked by visions from his God to build an ark before mankind is swept off the planet by an unrelenting flood. The visionary film hits Blu-ray and DVD this week, which afforded us the opportunity to chat with Handel about the movie, the pressures of expectations and biblical adaptations, and if it'll take another eight years before we see a script written by him on the big screen.   Movies.com: Were there any overt...

Contest: Win Darren Aronofsky's 'Noah' On Blu-Ray

28 July 2014 9:06 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

Washing into theatres this past spring, Darren Aronofsky's "Noah" was unlike any Bible story brought to the big screen in recent memory. Or perhaps ever. Moving away from the traditional Sunday School narrative you might remember, Aronofsky's vision was darker, but also deeply looked at the price of faith, spiritually and emotionally. And if you missed it or want to see it again, we've got a way to make that happen. But first, a recap: Aronofsky's film brings together Russell Crowe, Jennifer Connelly, Anthony Hopkins, Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Ray Winstone, and Douglas Booth in the tale that sees Noah tasked by God to build an ark before a flood comes to wipe out the inhabitants of Earth who have gone astray. But Noah will find his faith, survival and relationships challenged by the task, one that must see him reckon with the sin within his own family and himself. »

DVD Review: 'Noah'

28 July 2014 8:24 AM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆Let it be howled from the mountain tops that with his extraordinary Noah (2014), director Darren Aronofsky has crafted a bold, phantasmagorical interpretation of the Old Testament tale as we've never seen it before. In it, mankind - led by Tubal-Cain (British hardman Ray Winstone) - has spread like a cancer across the world, consuming all in their path and living in smoggy, ashen cities. "The Creator", in his infinite wisdom, decides to send a great flood to cleanse the earth of his creation and start anew. He does, however, choose to save Noah (Russell Crowe, on-form here), last patriarch of the antediluvian age, and his family, who must build an ark that will house two of every living creature.

The Death Of Superman Lives; What Happened? Trailer Offers Amazing Glimpse Into What Could Have Been

25 July 2014 11:46 AM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

Superman Lives is one of the great (or not-so-great) lost movies of Hollywood.  Back in the mid-90’s Tim Burton came onboard the project alongside star Nicolas Cage and screenwriter Kevin Smith.  They actually got pretty far along in development (you’ve no doubt seen Cage’s infamous photo in the costume) before the whole thing fell apart.  Now, filmmaker Jon Schnepp is attempting to brave the waters and figure out what happened with his upcoming documentary, The Death of Superman Lives; What Happened? The trailer for the film was unveiled last night at the San Diego Comic-Con and is actually pretty great, featuring many of the key players (no Cage though) in the debacle. Hit the jump for the The Death of Superman Lives; What Happened trailer and to find out more on how this intriguing film can become a reality. As you can see, Superman Lives was going »

After experiencing visions of an apocalyptic deluge, Noah (Russell Crowe) takes extreme, ark-building measures to protect his family from the coming flood. However, his survival strategy could come to naught if his nemesis Tubal-cain (Ray Winstone) gets his way. Black Swan director Darren Aronofsky pulls out all the stops - from the barking to the brilliant - to offer up a genuine spectacle of biblical proportions. »

Johnny Depp was recently photographed in full prosthetics to play real-life Boston gangster James 'Whitey' Bulger in the upcoming movie Black Mass.

The 50-year-old actor was wearing a balding wig cap, fake teeth, a blue open shirt with a gold chain, and a black leather jacket as he shot the film's final scenes in Lynn, Massachusetts.

Benedict Cumberbatch recently joined the cast as Whitey Bulger's brother Billy Bulger, along with Parks and Recreation's Adam Scott, who is reported to be playing FBI agent Robert Fitzpatrick.

The Scott Cooper-directed crime drama is due for release in cinemas on September 18, 2015.
