Noah

If you don't feel the need to see Darren Aronofsky's big screen adaptation of the Biblical tale of Noah for some reason, you might as well take the time to check out the most impressive and breathtaking sequence from the film. This is definitely one of the parts of Noah that will get creationists in a tizzy because it takes some liberties by mixing science with faith in the creation of everything. However, we recommend that everyone just takes the time to watch the release of this sequence from Protozoa Pictures, just because of how gorgeous and stunning it happens to be. Otherwise, you'll have to wait until the film hits Blu-Ray/DVD.

The story of creation, as told by Russell Crowe, from Darren Aronofsky's Noah (via Protozoa Pictures):

In Darren Aronofsky's take on the Biblical tale, Noah (Russell Crowe) suffers visions of an apocalyptic deluge, and takes measures to protect his family from the coming flood. Paramount/New Regency are behind the project, being produced by Aronofsky & Protozoa Pictures partner Scott Franklin with Mary Parent. Darren Aronofsky & Ari Handel wrote the script, with a revision by John Logan before production. The cast includes Emma Watson, Logan Lerman, Jennifer Connelly and Anthony Hopkins. Paramount Pictures released Noah in theaters on March 28th and the film hits Blu-Ray & DVD later this year. Cool?

    I'm christian and I actually think it's pretty neat. The only hang up I have (obviously because of my faith, and my belief in the Bible) is how instead of Christ/Jehovah/God creating the world, it is the "creator." Other than that, I actually definitely believe that God is the most incredible scientist of all, and probably built this world using some form of science that we only slightly understand.

      I am not religious and yet I also think this is pretty neat. A great time laps of evolution through intelligent design. Because I have no faith I feel the creator suits this piece quite well if taken out of the context of the bible from which I do. God, creator, its all the same to me. A divine source of energy that binds us in life and death void of any religion and free with choice to discover our own spiritual path.

        Well said. I agree, in time-lapse form, it is something to behold.

      Aronofsky, as I understand it, was raised Jewish, and Jews (at least the more conservative ones) have an aversion to pronouncing the name of God. You will even see some spelling "God" in online forums with a dash in place of the "o" ("G-d"). So Aronofsky's use of "Creator" may be a concession to their sensibilities. As for this sequence itself, it's one of my favorite things from the "Noah" movie, which I finally saw on Saturday. I'm a Christian in the Roman Catholic tradition, and as such see no conflict between faith and science as depicted here. I generally have no patience for "young earth creationists" who try to dogmatically claim that their position is the only valid position for a Christian.

      Believer/Christian as well and loved the movie and this scene. Edward makes a good point regarding Jewish use of the name of God. I also think he was trying to make the idea of a creator universal, accessible to anyone. "And God said let there be light." Bang! For a long time I've believed evolution was part of God's method of creation, so neat to see this film incorporate it.

    By far the best scene in the film.

    This could a wonderful fantasy or religious piece. It doesn't matter. Cool is cool.
