Last week I went to see two movies that normally would not be on my list of movies to see. I use the term Epic but I'm not sure if that is how they are catagorized. I think that seeing and loving The Hunger Games has given an interest in these type of movies.
I saw Noah (IMDb) on Thursday and it took me a little while to get into it but I have to say that I liked this movie. I came out of the theater happy that I saw it. I have heard conflicting reports that it follows the Bible and that it doesn't! So when I came home I read a few things about the story of Noah.
One was Facts on Noah's Ark from Christian Information Ministries just to refresh my memory and the other was an article I find that was written by Josh Dickey. I had a question about something and he pretty much answered it for me. If you haven't seen the movie I would not go to Josh's article because it will give something away that you may not want to see if you plan on seeing the movie.
Not to keep you in the dark.....he said that he believes some of the things in the movie may have come from the Book of Enoch which is an ancient Jewish religious text and not included in our Bible.
"A man is chosen by God to undertake a momentous mission of rescue before an apocalyptic flood destroys the world."
On Saturday Mark and I went to see Divergent (IMDb). So many people I know have said that it was awesome so I felt I had to see what it was about. It was very interesting and I liked it a lot. Mark thought it was just okay. Divergent is a three book series and I will definitely go see more movies if they make them.
Hunger Games still holds a special place in my heart but I have to say that I enjoyed the main characters in this movie and definitely look forward to seeing them again. (Katniss and Tris rock!)
"In a world divided by factions based on virtues, Tris learns she's Divergent and won't fit in. When she discovers a plot to destroy Divergents, Tris and the mysterious Four must find out what makes Divergents dangerous before it's too late."
