Movies: “Noah” (v1.3)

Had time today. Took the opportunity to finally see NOAH. Very much liked it. Well worth seeing. It may be a bit “dramatized”, but how could it not?
I’ve heard the filmmakers did a huge amount of research.
And, I also hear that many are angry, upset that it is not a “traditional” telling.
I don’t know either from Adam.
I just know I liked it.
Some fantastical/supernatural/miraculous elements, as is appropriate.
Plenty of depth concerning morality/ethics, and human behavior — good, bad, and curiously animal (“aggressive will” and “entitlement to dominion”, I’ll say).
Noah as “warden”, “caretaker”, “servant”.
Tubal-cain, I’m sure, probably saw himself as “provider”, “achievers”, possibly as “job-creator” (or at least one rung below the Creator).

Plenty to chew on. I liked it.

YMMV.

To anyone who misconstrued this post — I WAS SPEAKING IN VERY BROAD STROKES. I WAS NOT “TARGETING” ANYONE I KNOW. NO, I WAS NOT TALKING ABOUT WORK OR FAMILY. Yeesh.
